    BV, be careful with this one. 'nickjames' posted this to another Forum 04 September 2012 and then again tonight. It is the ONLY thing he has ever posted to that Forum twice. He just joined this Forum today.

    This may be antique (I wouldn't know), but it looks like it's made out of molded plastic to me. The only Zing Shot Launchers that are currently sold today are in the Toys and Games section of department stores. They shoot foam balls.

    There is probably a reason why this is a one-of-a-kind find. Maybe someone interested could ask Flatband about this. He's an avid collector.

    It will also be interesting to see where this thread goes the second time around and how many one-of-a-kind finds are there out there?

    Here's the info if someone wants to take the time to investigate. Label ME skeptic!

    I'll just use the idea....took images from his video to build a homemade!
    Since I'm not a pro and don't sell anything.... it won't be a problem. Thanks anyway!

    I agree that it is an interesting design. Notice the two hyperlinks I provided. There are four pages of info you might find useful.
