I've only been collecting for a few months, I guess I'm trying to catch up! Love seeking out these old slingshots though.

One of my favorites

I haven't been collecting vintage slingshots for long, but have a pretty good start! This one isn't a production vintage slingshot, but when I saw it on the auction site I had a hunch at what it was and it was paired with a Deerslayer as well. I won the auction and as soon as I got it I was sure I knew what it was and a quick Google search proved conclusive. This homemade slingshot is made from a WWI Era US calvary spur, model 1911. The US stands for United States of course and the AB stands for the company: August Buermann. This instantly became one of my favorite vintage slingshots, I included an image of a set of spurs as well.

G10 OPFS

02 February 2017 - 10:36 AM

I have been looking for some classic Slingshots lately and the opportunity came up to trade for a deadshot. The trader was looking for an OPFS in a bright, tough material, and I just happened to have some 1/4" orange G10 laying around. Here is what I made him.
