automatic release slingshot (A.R.S. bullpup ) finished joerg sprave inspired :)

so here it is finished for now .... it fires mainly 22mm lead but most size of ammo is suitable the way the lock mech works .made this from all over the shelf brackets and very minimal tools . totall build time about 10 hours max total cost about 15 pounds sterling . uses of the shelf bands but im thinking of buying some theratube black or silver . atm the power is surprising ! there barnett red mag bands atm total draw of bands 34 inch same size as total weapon :) the big german man has inspired me greatly on this project snd this aint the last you seen of me :) !!! so much fun just need weather to brighten up a bit .thanks for looking and any feed back would b greatly welcome ..... thanks gordie

That looks like the same mechanism that he used in his artillery SS a couple of years ago. Great design. With all of the recent talk about pulleys I wonder if the ones you have are really beneficial. That said, it looks like one helluva weapon! Nice job!

Hey man thanks for response :) yeah its my second build still gotta work out a few other designs but I thought pullys were good as they make rubber pull to full length whilst keeping overall lengh down and eliminating dead play in bands ? But like I say im new to this and thought it looked cool :) only problem is ive noway to play with it properly :(

That thing is sweet, Gordie!

Hope you can find a good place to cut loose with it.
Thanks for showing this off. I agree, the paint scheme is great.
