    Hi folks,

    just want to show you the magazine version of the slingring. It is designed for 17 round of 6,35 mm steel and it is banded up with TBG 15-8 mm, 17 cm long which provides decent power. As it has been build as a gift for a friend, it is on the way now. I hope you like it.

    Beautiful! This little treasure makes me think of summer sunshine.

    Can't you just IMAGINE walking through meadows of wild flowers, birds singing, bizzzy little bees doing their thing, four-legged friend at your side, and just having loads of plinking fun. Sigh....

    I'm amazed the mag holds this much ammo. 17 rounds is plenty for skipping through meadows and a fun day in the sun.

    Thanks for your nice comments.
    @Bert: right, these are sheets of a high condensed foam, 3 mm thick

    It is in fact a kind of foam, but when you glue 4 layers together, it is quite stiff. You can't polish this material and it has micro-pores. To get a smooth surface, you have to apply paint or resin. In this case, I have sprayed 8 layers of acryl paint to close the pores.

    Haha Loei, you made my day! In fact I had somebody in my mind when I made this slingshot, but it was not Uma Thurman :D. Anyway, nice idea and if I had to make a slingshot for her, it would look exactly like the SlingBee.

    @kenyon-slingshots: I don't think that you will have a fork hit with it. If you shoot the SlingBee in the right style, it will flip automatically. Btw - at the end of the video is a peek on the parts for this shooter.

    [​IMG] OK, I think I just fainted. She matches the Slingbee!

    Flicks, you might have to make another so Uma can accessorize her killer ensemble.

    But seriously, guys, I think Uma would break a manicured nail with this. Too dangerous for her. The Slingbee ist definitely meant for a Jane Yellowrock type. She's badder, hunts rogue vamps, wears cooler leathers, and has more toys in her weapons arsenal. She's also a super K-A biker chick. Sorry Uma! [​IMG]
    Thank you for showing us the video demo, Flicks. Pretty cool stuff. [​IMG]
