    Have added two bent metal rods to the front part, so the bands do not <br>slip off, but stay on the rollers. This allows a much faster reloading.<br><br>Plus, it adds safety. In the unlikely event a roller breaks off, the <br>rods (that are bolted onto the stirrup assembly) will prevent them from <br>flying towards the shooter's face.<br><br>The bolts are welded to the washers on top of the rollers. <br><br><img src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-Byv_lBwIj7Y/TnIaHsepQgI/AAAAAAAAA4o/yajgQqhsAwM/s1600/Front2.JPG" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-mAIYjbpYZ0M/TnIaIVMe_QI/AAAAAAAAA4s/ojUhZg7qrBw/s1600/Front1.JPG" border="0" alt="">

    That's a great improvement. Keep up the good work. I'm not sure but I think you said that you are making a tutorial on this slingshot? That will be awesome. I love your designs. My problem is that I can never find multiplex plywood. Would it be in the flooring/roofing area of Hardware store or in Lumber yard?

    <br><font color="brown">Since recently I've learned that the band <strong>can't be pre-tensioned</strong><br> like the limbs of a bow, it's now obvious that it's very easy for the <br>band/string to slip off the rollers at the end of the power stroke.

However, since you are calling it an "assault" <br>sling-bow, I think there is room for an "over the track" rail (most <br>video games have at least one bullpup rifle with front mounted scope ) <br>that will be simple to build and solid to boot...while still allowing <br>you to draw with both hands and not dealing with any swing arms etc.</font>

    Added a scope. Of course one of the trusted German Army Surplus G36 scopes, 5 bucks a pop.<br><br>I glued it to a wooden ring, which in turn was glued to a 6mm bolt.<br><br>The swing arm is running very tightly on an axis made from 6mm aluminum <br>tubing, no play in the mechanism. A rubber band holds it into place.<br><br>The scope is attached to the swing arm with the bolt, which allows me to adjust the aim left-right and up-down.<br><br>The swing arm makes it possible to draw back the bands without any problems, as the scope is out of the way.<br><br><br><br>It is very accurate!<br><br>Seems like the finishing job is ahead of me.<br><img src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-cexdES7KLnY/TnMkIvpCsGI/AAAAAAAAA5A/7dPsXXvguy8/s1600/Scope3.JPG" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-IrA7NuIRL7c/TnMkJRSuT-I/AAAAAAAAA5E/ahaXI7rnAiI/s1600/Scope2.JPG" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-OytW6pv0smk/TnMkKisFxEI/AAAAAAAAA5I/xxfvS0yPSeY/s1600/Scope1.JPG" border="0" alt=""><br><br>Jörg

    The still shots give it a whole different look. Still looks very cool. Good job!

    I am glad you added the band retainers ... as you say, it makes reloading easier and is much safer. <br><br><br><br>Of course I feel uneasy about having the scope on a pivot. I wonder about having some sort of bent steel strap coming from the back of the stock and over the top of the loading port. That way you would incorporate a cheek rest and a mounting platform for the scope. You could still easily draw the pouch back as before.<br><br><br><br>I built a slingbow some years ago with a heavy draw. Instead of a stirrup, I put a loop of nylon band attached to the front of the stock. That was not so bulky. In use, I just put the toe of my shoe through the loop, just as you would the stirrup. I added the same sort of loop to an older crossbow of mine which has no stirrup of any sort. I found the loop to be as convenient as a stirrup, but made the weapon more compact.<br><br><br><br>Cheers ..... Charles

    How do you square up your sight with the slingshot, do you need to use laser pointers or is it easier?
