I just picked up this little beauty on E-bay. It's a Victor Model 10 from the late 50's early 60's. Great shape and I'm very glad I finally got one. Been trying for a few years. Sorry to anyone that was bidding on it but I had to win this one after losing so many others! Great
Yeah, I have a weakness for Vintage frames Perry. Like yourself, I just love slingshots. I always found the simplicity and needed skill to hit the target consistently,very appealing. Long live the "forked stick"! Flatband
A friend sent me one of those. I got it today and it still had the original band on it which was no good. I put new bands on it and it shoots great. I think I like my 20 better, but the little 10 is really nice.
Here's another little jewel I picked up recently. This is a Lohman slingshot from the early 70's. Lohman was known for it's wooden game calls and decided to cash in on the Wham-o craze. This was their candidate. This one came with the original box. My original came in a Jiffy packing bag. I never even knew they had an actual graphics package. Had to have this one. A few months ago I picked up a plain Lohman (without box). Now I have two! I have a few doubles in my collection so when I can I'll put them up for sale on here first before they go to E-Bay. There seems to be a few collectors on here that may be interested. Fun! Flatband
Here's another one of those very rare finds that I absolutely go crazy over. This one is a solid cast Aluminum "V" fork called a "Little Oscar". This was available for short time in the early 60's. It came from the great vintage slingshot state of Michigan. Man,those guys up there made some nice frames! I guess it was the "John Milligan" influence! This one, as far as I can tell, was never used and came with the box. Thick gum bands,single slot attachment,wrapped thin wire tie on the band -pouch connection.I saw one of these go off for a pretty hefty price on e-bay a few years ago. I lost that bid-got this one though! Cool!
