Wait wait wait...
This is a sawed-off shotgun...well...a pneumatic version...wich I modified to launch arrows.
What didn't make sense to me is the suggestion to remove my modification to turn it back into what it was...????
The first version, with wich I shot " shot" regularly, dates back to januari 2006.
version januari 30th 2006:

So suggesting to do that to turn it into a real sawed-off seems a little weird...since I have done nothing else for almost 4 years with it..
There is basically nothing I haven't tried when it comes to pneumatics...
Thank you for not disappointing me Psy...
but you have given away the surprise..I was planning on finishing it tonight...I should have known your gears would start turning the second you saw the idea..
I think, with a rubber sabot, only a small section is needed to slow the sabot down to acceptable speeds for a metal barrel.
The idea is not new, but still a SF first..
I never got around to it...although I had suggested it some time ago..
It's pretty simple and not really a great innovation, just something fun to try.
As theories tend to get a lot of pages without actual result, I thought I'd just build it.
Hope you like it.
I'd like to see what you guys make of it.
After 50.000 years of development...we're back to sharpening arrowheads..
