    Sure its so much fun <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"><br><br>@pasquale: The whole mechanism consists of the trigger the sear and a leave spring. when the trigger is pulled, it pushes a lever (sear) upwards that tilts around the rear pin so it gets pulled down in the back of the gun and the string which is hooked up to the rear of the lever gets released.<br><br>@ketansa: hmm I think that shis would be rather difficult. I think it is easier to build a new pistol specifficly for shooting balls. good Idea though <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1">

    I was wondering...If you took out those two stop pins just before the front pulleys will the band just shoot out the front of the pistol and fly off the pulleys? I've been sketching out a similar design of my own but not sure if I need some kind of band stop at the front or not.
