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.

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.

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 :)

useful hints for shiny steel blades and steel frames! does it work on aluminium too?

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
