That video is great. I like the trigger mechanism and the simplicity of design.

The delay from cocking to shooting doesn't seem any faster than my original Slingshot Bow that I made many years ago to test ammo.

The delay from cocking to shooting doesn't seem significantly faster than my original Slingshot Crossbow (link) that I made long ago (link) to test ammo, though. I prefer your slicker metal version in those regards.



I think the delay, the smoothness of the draw and the compactness of the design can be addressed with a pump on a pulley.

That sounds scary. The way I did it was to place the fork against the ground like a traditional crossbow, draw the pouch with ball inside and hook the loop over the release. Sometimes I did the same with the fork in a vise; that was when bench shooting.
