    Hello Everybody

    First of all it is very difficult for me to write in English...but I will try.
    I have built a slingshot crossbow lunching flechettes after study the videos of Joerg and Alejandro Castro and as a little boy (77 years old) I get this "terrible" weapon. It works fine...

    I am very glad with the results and now I am finishing another one but using another sort of trigger!

    Best regards

    Hello Anatine

    Well just now I am sending to you the pictures in sequence showing the first slingshot gun loaded OK...

    This is the weapon and the flechette

    http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-ouoKApBO4Fw/UzSF4cmENKI/AAAAAAAAJpI/EDfzl5WVcdU/s1600/GEDC0845.JPG


    Now the flechette having a nut in one extremity...

    http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-211X_GyML0o/U1wc7aeGvhI/AAAAAAAAJz8/Y4ZKnS4AowY/s1600/GEDC0966.JPG

    How is load...we put the white loops in the nut that has wings and we pull in direction of a block 

    http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-7i6lqRRUf-E/U1wdA9_W9PI/AAAAAAAAJ0M/BhtHiA-19iE/s1600/GEDC0967.JPG

    That is the block with a groove in the midle

    http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-aS_UYJd_WUA/U1wc812BrjI/AAAAAAAAJ0E/AOy4L0T8IlQ/s1600/GEDC0968.JPG

    The rear extremity has a normal M6 nut...it is glued to the axe...OK and that nut blocks the axe avoiding to shoot ....Wnhen we press the trigger the little rod goes upstairs to elevate the nut and the flechette goes...

    http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-fCJWeO4NyOA/U1wdJGVA1yI/AAAAAAAAJ0U/tQ8MxHT7gp8/s1600/GEDC0969.JPG

    Just fired...

    http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-s9mxyj6YHq4/U1wdLScwUoI/AAAAAAAAJ0c/nrFbo0SbUGU/s1600/GEDC0970.JPG

    These kind of the arrows are not expensive and hand made of course...but they are dangerous. I tested this weapon (I like very much the design inpired in one I saw in You Tube lunching marbles...)

    I hope you understant my terrible English...Tomorrow, I will send you the other weapon in action. The tigger is different that's all for the moment.

    If you wish to take a look in more details I have made a blog...it is plenty of photos...unfortunatelly is written in Portuguese but I think that an image is better tham 1000 words.
