    Hi all.
    Making my second slingshot - gangster style only, bands on top or side.
    This is my take on Hathcock sniper with some medieval twist.
    Finish is not perfect still work in progress, maybe I should paint it.
    What you think?
    Thanks.

    This is dynamite!! No paint, no paint!
    A little polishing and that is perfect!

    very cool design! leave it blank.

    somehow i don't like the name of it. i know bill hays named that design. glorifying people that are awesome effective killers of humans leaves a bad taste for me ...

    Thank you all for input. Ill try to polish it, but it's aluminum and will scratch easily.
    Maybe clear coat will preserve it.

    If you anodize it, the surface hardens just enough to not scratch so easily.

    A good metal polish can turn steel to look like silver if you use some hydro chloric acid and add a lot of water (or buy it at a pH very close to 7 being nuteral) I don't know where to get it but it has been proven to work try some lemon juice on a scrap piece of metal and check the results and maybe use that because it is at a pH of 5 or something decent like that but nice sling as I have said :)

    Yes I think it does because if the hydro chloric acid is close to 7 being neutral it will make it more shiny but I don't know the science being it soz XD
