    OK, as I mentioned before I want to make some more slingshot attachments for my M16A1.

    Next, I want to mount a knife launcher underneath the barrel. Cold Steel sent me some of the new, cool Hide Out knives - lightweight (1.9 oz), but razor sharp and well balanced.

    I ordered a front stock with a long Picantinny rail, so I can attach the launcher, much like the M203 grenade launcher - longer, of course. and rubber powered. That is why I will call it the SSC203 (SSC = SlingShotChannel).

    I am very excited about this - feels like a bayonet that you can shoot, too! :)

    Too make it even cooler, I want to make it a double barrel model.

    We are having visitors, so this proceeds slower than usual... however, I did invest a couple of hours today.

    The "barrels" are rails, made from aluminum and a wooden core. They keep the knives 100% straight, which is necessary for a good flight. Magnets hold the knives back in the loaded position.

    The triggers have my usual top-barrel-first or both-barrels-at-once modes. There is a certain type of aesthetics in two razor sharp blades, on their way to destiny at the same time :)

    I will hopefully complete it tomorrow, in time for the video.

    That are pretty cool knives! :cool:
    I think it's undoubted that we all are extremely excited about this contraption.
    It's the worlds first knive shooting m16! Funny is that one can say that everytime you build something. :D
     
  4. Nice knife!

    Will be an incredible weapon!

    Nothing for children!

    Are these knifes allowed?

    Cause they have 2 sharp blades?

    I think they are not!

    These knives are totally legal to own in Germany. You just can't carry them in public - which I do not plan to do anyway. On my own fenced in property, I can do what I want.
     
  6. Thanks Jörg for this information!

    if you think about it, this could be used as a silent weapon for zombz if you dont want to get heard. is there any way you can show us a pdf on how to make it?
