Old sling shot
« on: April 28, 2013, 03:50:03 pm »
So I am going through my father's things and I found an old sling shot, most likely from the '50's or early '60's.  I am trying to identify it and see if I can still get replacement slings(?) for it.  It is similar to if not identical to the one in the lower left hand corner of the picture (the white one).  When I can I will post a picture of the one I found.

    No luck.  And I messaged a guy on a sling shot forum who apparently sells replacement slings and never got a response.  He apparently sells on ebay so I could just buy one of his slings and hope it works.  I also need the little nylon pieces that retain the sling in place.

    Ahhh, right on. I hope you can get everything you need. Tell you what, we had a sling shot with us over in the sandbox, that dang thing turned out to be more of a danger to ourselves than our M16's did. ;D
