One turn, two shots: Crank operated pencil shooter! | Jörg Sprave

Indiegogo campaign:

This is a very classic episode here at The Slingshot Channel: Time for another innovation!

A new pencil repeater is presented, operated by two crank handles left and right of the weapon. The shooter is pressed against the chest, then the handles are turned - every half turn fires a "round". Eight turns empty the entire 16 shot magazine...

This has potential, as it seems easy to replace the (a bit awkward) muscle operated action by a battery powered drill. A bigger size, heavy bolts, much more rubber and draw length - are we approaching the world's first true turret mounted full auto spear launcher?

A new slingshot made by Nathan Masters (Simple-Shot) is also presented, plus an update on a three years old steel frame.

A "The Slingshot Channel" production!
