I don't know where to sign it Joe!!!!  ( Maybe the bottom ). You are right Pie. I see some of these pictures these guys take and I wish I could make my pictures as nice. ( Lousy Photographer ). Maybe the outside is better. I'll take your advice Bud and give it a try.

Matt, saw this a few years ago on e-bay and jumped on it immediately. To see one with the box ( especially in that condition-like new! ) ),I just had to have it. Amazingly,there was only 5 or 6 other bids on it. I hung in there till auction end and put ( I thought ) a sizable bid on it and took it for a lot less then my highest bid.  I got VERY lucky!!!

 

P.S don't think there is a date on the box Matt. Next time I dig her out I will double check.

Here's one that I have in my collection.

The Milbro is to Great Britain as the Wham-o is to the states. Both the most popular in their respective countries.

The old sling assembly is pictured. I fashioned the wooden collets that hold the cube bands from a small wooden thread spool from a dollhouse that I found at a craft show.

The new square bands I got from Melchior Menzel ( Slingshots of the World ) a few years back. A very small slingshot but never the less very popular.

The box is different then the one Matt has so I don't know if it's a earlier or later model. I do know that the Milbro brothers made a few different models.

This is the only Milbro model I have.
