Sling-X-Bow: Now with stock and scope!

Have done it - I converted an old rifle stock for the slingshot crossbow, and I also attached a scope.

I strengthened the barrel by adding to more "rails", as the 3 stripes of Thera Gold per side bent the single steel tube slightly upwards. Now everything is OK!

Used a training band to adjust the scope and to test the accuracy - 10 meters, it shoots hole in hole in hole.

It is really long for a crossbow, but I love it!

Will do a video tomorrow, already prepared the ballistic gelatin...







Regards, Jörg

Loading takes a few seconds. Longer than loading a modern rifle, less than loading a muzzleloader.

Can make it shorter, but then the power goes down. This does over 50 Joules, five times more than an air rifle - with about 45 lbs draw weight. The reason is the long acceleration way.

That is too cool.

It makes me sad that a country with such a rich hunting and gunsmithing culture, has taken such an extreme position on guns.

Owning weapons and beeing allowed to hunt ALWAYS was privileged in Europe. Our rulers NEVER wanted effective weapons in the hands of their citizens. Couple hundred years back, the Brits tried to impose these rules in their colonies too - but in North America, that did not work...

The result is your 2nd amendment.

Congrats!

Here is the video:

+ YouTube Video

Unbelievable, the .63" (16 mm) lead ball went through the cat food can filled with water, then on through 40 cm of ballistic gelatine...

As a bonus, I also fired some other crossbows and the boncrushers through the gel.

Enjoy!

Shot it yesterday. This is too much fun!

Distance is 14 meters, I leaned the "barrel" against the door frame. Shot 10 rounds first, then put another target (air rifle size) over the first one. So we have one target with 10 and one with 20 hits.

Ammo was 15 mm steel, and I used "hunterbands" (two Thera Gold per side, 3cm x 2cm x 18cm effective band size).

Now that is one sweet slingshot / crossbow that I can get behind! I wish you'd build me something to take out armadillos and raccoons silently.
