    Hi everyone, I don't know if you all remember a while ago I made a very similar slingshot and put it on here and to my amazement I got an outstanding amount of feed back, all positive by the way, well here I have made another one very similar Buffalo top with a deer hoof and shot gun cartridge on the front with a brass Ferrell at the joint and also I have fitted black Theraband which makes this extremely powerful when shooting with 15mm lead balls any way I hope you all like it and please let me have some feed back, be much appreciated thanks...

    This slingshot is for sale

    It's nice work. I like the shape and color of the fork as well as the addition of the brass ferrule and the shotgun shell head/primer. While the deer foot isn't my style, it does work well with this design. I'm sure you'll find a willing buyer for this nice piece.

    I'm 50/50 on the foot but really like the rest of it 100%! The black and brass contrast makes it look really classy. A perfect slingshot for a country gent or his gamekeeper :)

    Hey Umbro,

    I´m with Withak and Scoobs. The shooter is nice (unique anyway..)!
    The contrast of black and brass is perfect!- but I´m also not sure
    about the hoof... Are you sure that poor animal will do good with
    just three of them left? ;)

    Greetings,

    The color scheme is spot on, and the horn looks beautifully smooth.

    If you have any pictures of it, or another horn ss still in stages of work I'd love to see them.

    I think the deer foot ruined the beauty of the sling itself... just my opinion.

    I know its not everyone's taste but I am always looking for originality, it looks awesome in real time the pics don't do it any justice at all, also feels great in the hand, oh the poor animal the hoof came off is doing quite nice in my freezer lol,

    Thanks for the reply, much appreciated :D
