    I am interested in finding out if anyone on the forum has made a Speargun? I have made many slingshots in the past but Im interested in trying my hand at making a speargun, If anyone has infact made one any tips would be HUGELY appreciated <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"><br><br>Cheers!
     
  2. I'm working on a slingbow currently, and have plans for a sling crossbow in the near furture. What do you mean by speargun? Like the traditonal "hawian sling"?<br><br><br><img src="http://i40.servimg.com/u/f40/17/90/14/43/spearg10.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br>Or something like this? (Sorry for poor quality, trying to draw things on mspaint is like trying to carve a turkey with a chainsaw)<br><br>Joerg has a tutorial on how to make an item like this in his "how to weaponize office supplies", it is made from paper and shoots pencils.

    very similar to yours in function, but quite abit stronger,<br>more like a modern "eurogun" like the ones here<br><br><a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ygAvRrU_VIY" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ygAvRrU_VIY</a><br><br>although the one I plan to make will be much more streamlined and cost effective,<br><br>You should make one Jörg!

    Am I right to assume no one thus far has made one yet?
