<span class="postbody"><br><br>I will have to look for it, sadly I have not seen every video Joerg has made.<br><br><br>Anywho, I just drew this up in photoshop hope the size isn't to large. Basically it is a modded Crosman 3576W, being I have that laying around I like the way it feels, however it will have a large barrel on it. It is looking to be about 14-15" in overall length.<br><br><img src="http://i162.photobucket.com/albums/t267/Busted11290/Slingpistol.png" border="0" alt=""><br><br>Now to find materials for this thing...</span>
