Hello Slingshot Forum friends!!!
Here's a latest work of mine. To say the truth, it took me only 2 hours to fully make this micro natural slingshot. Nevertheless, in spite of its small size, it has shot .177 BB's with authority.
It was finished with linseed oil and shellac.
The pictures shows it side by side with my SAK Alox pocket knife, to give a notion of its size.
It is so small, but sounds to me like a natural's replica. Hence, I've dubbed it the "Micro-Machine".
Hope you like it!!!
Cheers ...Q

That's tiny, and some serious bands too. Are those bands thick or just magnified? It's a little beauty Q.
Thank you so much for your feedback, my friend!!!

The slingshot is 3,5cm length, 0,6cm inner fork gap and 1,6cm outer fork gap.

The bands are old school gum rubber band, cut from a sheet. They're not tapered and are 0,5cm by 27cm.

Their thickness is about 1mm

Cheers ...Q

If that little bitty stick could talk he would be so grateful to live on again as this slingshot!

Even a small, insignificant thing can have its 15 minutes of glory!!! LOL! :D

In this case, it can be 15 years. Why not? ;)

THANKS for watching, my friend!!!

Hi my friend!!

You're doing???? THANKS for watching ;)

More of a curiosity than a functional slingshot.

Even so, I'm going to try to pierce a can with it. See if I can make it :D

Cheers ...Q

Inconspicuous, yet doubtlessly very effective with .177 steel BB's....very nice!

Just be careful with your thumb when shooting with it, as I would assume that it will be in the direct firing line when you hold your mini-shooter. :hmm: . I know, because I nailed my thumbnail that way with a small cardboard slingshot of a similar size...hmm. Once was enough.
