    Hello Friends

    When I saw for the first time the Medieval slingshot crossbow built by Joerg I had a dream...To build something similar...

    And without spearguns I realize this slingshot crossbow using a very simple trigger based in a pirate pistol make also by Joerg...

    It works fine...less power of course but it is fun to fire with this "weapon"  http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-9KuKlkcIU6U/Ux3UyQjmSNI/AAAAAAAAI-k/9LQwsNrFiOU/s1600/21.jpg

    Interesting, does it shoot pellets or arrows/bolts?

    Hello Todd

    This slingshot crossbow shoots marbles...not arrows! But this one bellow shoots small iron darts homemade too. These are  inventions of Mr. Joerg and I try to copy them not so efficient but it is good for me to spend the time this way...  http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-ouoKApBO4Fw/UzSF4cmENKI/AAAAAAAAJpI/EDfzl5WVcdU/s1600/GEDC0845.JPG
