i started making this yesterday. i cut the handle off an adjustable spanner and i used a old alloy brake caliper then cut a small piece of alloy to attach a fully adj sight. it works really well and built to last. i will post more pics soon with bands :D atom





thanks

Love it. Futuristic in a Mad Max movie setting kind of way. No wait it isn't futuristic because this is now so it is Presentistic in a slingshot nut kind of way.
