    Hi, and welcome to the slingshot forum.
    Hahaha, just kidding.

    I wanna show my meccano pistol crossbow (i'm 16, but meccano is still fun for all ages), and of course slingshot too because it can fire anything you put on the slide (like marbles, darts, even pens)

    Here's the trigger mechanism (not so clever, but it's because the rubber band it's powerfully tensed). It goes in the middle of the two white parts, and pushes the band up.

    Welcome!

    Cool little build, but if you use string in the the middle of the rubberband, you will earn some longer bandlife! :)

    Keep on shooting [​IMG]
