How very interesting :) Have you tried this gun Persiko? Do those slots make a difference? I suppose they have to but is it noticable?
Very clever :)

Hallo

this is my new roller gun 70 cm


ulterior particular on my web site

ciao
Very good idea. Could you provide a top view of the muzzle and a view of how you attached the bands to the bottom of the barrel?
How do you prevent the wishbone to "catch" the shaft against the barrel before the shaft leaves the gun?

hallo guys

for Alison:those slots make a difference in lateral movement.

for Ajwaverider: yes, I built the reels (roller)

for Brasher :next week I testing it, but the other Mjolnir 90 was many powerful two passages more four turns than whirling arm

for Rigdvr: sorry, but I don't know Jack P's, have you something about her?

for Oregonspearo: I have inserted new photos on my web site one I hope are clear

Jack made the original roller guns way back in the day. He was also a pioneer in bluewater hunting. He is one of the original inovators in our sport. Do a search for him and you'll find all kinds of stuff.

hello persiko,

what is the pull length of the bands? and what is the band/shaft configuration on those roller guns you had? Do you have bigger ones also?

Has anyone thought of applying the principals of the compound bow to a roller gun?

Well - it uses assymetrical wheels - which makes the draw peak earlier - when the leverage is better - and then drop off for the hold. Thing is it also accelerates the arrow more gradually but with greater peak load - so the real benefit is velocity, range and accuracy. Could be interesting to try if you could make the designe sufficiently hyrdrodynamic.

No, the real benefit is that is allows me to hold that arrow back for as long as it takes for bambie to come out from behind that damn tree :).

Interesting post, fondu. I never knew the other benefits of a compound bow. I simply thought my increased accuracy was due to the fact that I didn't have to strain myself while aiming.

Back to the subject... Very nice-looking craftmanship, persiko. Do you all suppose rollerguns are the wave of the future, or just a luxury for a select group of super-charged spearos. Has Daryl Wong or Jay Riffe ever made any, or posted any thoughts online re: such designs?
