Very Cool.
Seal Sniper V2 looks very much like Shrike and Shrike looks like Seal sniper.
Are they switched around?

Fantastic, I'll be ordering a few today!! Pete, just one quick question, is the scorpion ambidesxtrous? I hold a slingshot in my left hand but that looks like its just for left hand holding?

@ebook886 if its like my scorpion with canted forks then its for left hand hold only

Also it is not universal fork either it for flatband and through the forks only


[edit] I suppose you could use tubes thinking about it if you so wished

Looks great Pete!
Now all the Guys who've been asking for the Scorpion or for a smaller Hathcock can get one easily and inexpensively!


Couple of things.... the SEAL Sniper V2 and the Shrike pictures are switched around... the Shrike really only shoots TTF whereas the SEAL is universal. The SEAL Sniper V1 is actually the Target Classic.

The Scorpion shown is indeed designed to be held in the left hand only, it is not ambidextrous. I will have a right hand hold model over there at some point, but he doesn't have one right now... I think all the other slingshots shown are ambidextrous though.

A few FAQs answered....
1)My personal favorite models are the Shrike and the Scorpion. If forced to choose only one slingshot and that's it, not allowed to own more than one, then the Scorpion is one I'd have. If either the Shrike or Scorpion existed before I started to get interested in slingshots... then I would never have built my first, as these are exactly what I like in a slingshot and allow me to be as accurate with a slingshot as most people are with a scoped target pistol.
2)The Hathcock Target Sniper is indeed named to honor the greatest Sniper I've ever had the privilege of meeting, Carlos N. Hathcock.
3)The standard HTS is designed for a large-extra large hand, and the smaller one is designed for a small to large hand.
4)The most versatile slingshot in the range, in my opinion, is the SEAL Custom 100... the internal fork design allows for unmodified arrow shooting. The fork tips allow for the attachment of every known (by me) type of propulsion elastic, and with most you can shoot over the top or through the forks.
5)The "little Boy" is indeed small but as I've shown before, can be used by even the largest of hands as well... this is my 3 year old Son's favorite, and with little child hands it can be held in a hammer grip, then as they grow can be held in a thumb/forefinger brace grip.

If there's any other questions, don't hesitate to ask!

Teach, I've been drooling over the milbro PPs for a while now, and it looks to me like they are correct.

The only problem discussed above that hasn't been addressed is there still isn't a scorpion for right handed hold. 

And that's the killer, as that's the aluminum PP I'd be most likely to order and I hold right-handed.

Oh, so you are that one person I keep hearing about that holds with his right hand. Thanks for clearing that up for me. grin

 

I actually am confused about the scorpion as on the PP website it is not even mentioned in the BUY section as even being available to order. I did however see fancy versions of it in the Gallery section. I'd want the purpose engineered ballistic resins with internal steel reinforcement . When I order I'll get three models at once, the HTS large and small and the Scorpion if I can ever find more info on it. Thanks Nobodo.

If you send Bill an email that includes the length from the tip of your middle finger to the first bend in your wrist, and what variations of anything in his gallery you want, I'll bet he'd work with you on it. Bill has said the Scorpion has always been one he custom makes for each order and no two are alike, and the people in this forum who have had one made seem to be really happy with them. The ones on his sales page are just the really commonly bought ones, so aren't customized and don't take as much time to make, and are cheaper as a result.

Well my shooting is coming along nicely but I'm not inclined to spend the kind of money needed to get into any of those custom jobs. I'd like to play with the frame shape/styles that I mentioned. I would not care what they were made of as long as I could do it affordably. The cost of the standard HTS would suit me fine for the Scorpion if It could be had in the same material. 

 

I sent Bill a PM on here a while back. Nothing heard. Perhaps an email as you suggest .......... to the PP website? Or somewhere else? Thanks
