    Slingshot Crossbow Pistol

    Hi guys,
    just wanted to show off a little steel ball shooter I built. The tricky thing was to get the string to push the ball and not jumb over it.
    The barrel halves had to be routed really precisely to hold the ball tight but also minimize friction. The balls are kept from rolling out by a little magnet. Hope you like it :)

    Looks pretty nifty, well done. I like the guncam action.

    Very nice, I saw it on YouTube :) Maybe it would look cool with a shoulderstock on this one?
