Flechettes - the video!
Here it is - my new sling-x-bow for shooting Sabaca's really cool darts.
It works really good, and has that sniper-like look I borrowed from .50 Browning rifles.
I used 11 mm plywood for the outer two layers and an inner layer of 18 mm plywood, with the trigger/lock part left out. This results in a nice, thick stock that is very comfortable.
It is equipped with Thera Band Gold, 1,5 times hunterband strength. Even in this cold weather it shoots pretty hard.
The lock is slotted so it is easy to notch the flechette into it. One moving part is enough for the entire trigger and lock.
You load it by stomping on the fork and pulling the flechette upwards. Easy and not dangerous.
This is fun!
