  1. Show off your homemades!
    thats my little sling-pistol, works similar to jörgs lego pistol, but it´s made to shoot 12mm bolts.
  2. Show off your homemades!
    Hi there, fellows! Work and other stuff are consuming my time, but I didn't forget this place (although it seems TOO calm....) Anyway, this is something I made in oreder to increase precison shooting. 1cm aluminum plate, aluminum clamp attachment system. Ergo grip in teak wood, pistol like with...
  3. New project ideas
    Great idea for a sling pistol that shoots darts like the ones used when playing with a dartboard. It could use several modifications including the use of Jörge Spraves' poison dart idea. A good mod would also be a topload magazine, with a capacity of maybe six darts.
  4. General Slingshot Discussions
    Hi guys New on the forum, wanted too see some of your homemade pistol or rifle slingshots . I have built sling-xbows before and a few handmade slingshots but I wanted to start diving into something a little different. I want it for more target practice and fun shooting. So don't be afraid to...

  7. Show off your homemades!
    This is my adaptation of Jörg's full size Bull-Pup sling x-bow. Due to some minor (and extremely stupid) oversights on my part the pistol won't actually shoot because the string won't catch the projectile. I can't figure out how to fix the one I already made but if someone wants to make a new...
  8. New project ideas
    Winter is approaching Wisconsin, so I am lining up projects for the workshop. I bought a pound of these on ebay, and I think that Joerg's James Bond design is just the ticket. I plan to shoot these into our dart board, and the occasional small child, but not animals. They are extremely light...
