    This is a slingshot rifle i made out of wood, alluminium and parts from <br>an old pistol crossbow. <br><br>The alluminium tube that runs above the barrel stops the wishbone <br>jumping above the arrow or steel ball and keeps them in the track.<br><br>The handle was cut off and modified from a barnett slingshot, and it's <br>forks were used at the front of the rifle. I don't know if you can make <br>out from the pictures but the forks can be slid forwards or backwards <br>slightly as they sit on another rail. The idea behind this was to enable<br> the draw weight to be changed somewhat.<br><br>The main body of the rifle was carved out of wood with the track routed to accomadate for steel balls, arrows/bolts with 2 feathers or 3 feathers.<br><br>The rubber used is made for sperguns and is quite thick, these were tied<br> on using kevlar cord with the constrictor knot.<br><br>Although probably not necessary, i added a scope to it, mainly because it looks cooler lol. If you noticed the wiring at the back, it was for a green laser sight that i had at the font concealed in the front of the square alluminium pipe with the wires running through it to the back of the rifle connecting to the purple battery pack. Annoyingly the green laser module broke so it doesnt work now :-( <br><br>I have'nt shot it much yet as i just got it finished, but it certainly packs a powerful punch!<br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=15&u=17133391" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i43.servimg.com/u/f43/17/13/33/91/rsz_im23.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=16&u=17133391" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i43.servimg.com/u/f43/17/13/33/91/rsz_im24.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=17&u=17133391" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i43.servimg.com/u/f43/17/13/33/91/rsz_im25.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=18&u=17133391" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i43.servimg.com/u/f43/17/13/33/91/rsz_im26.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br>url=http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=21&u=17133391]<img src="http://i43.servimg.com/u/f43/17/13/33/91/rsz_im29.jpg" border="0" alt="">[/url]<br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=22&u=17133391" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i43.servimg.com/u/f43/17/13/33/91/rsz_im30.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a>
