Full Auto Six Coke Bottle Arrow Launcher

Jörg Sprave of the Slingshot Channel makes some interesting contraptions. Mostly they are wooden mechanical devices that are usually rubber band powered. He has launched machetes, marbles, arrows and anything else dangerous and potentially deadly.

Recently Crossman announced their Airbow. Here is the article we posted.

Well Jörg has made a fully automatic 6 arrow launcher using pressurized plastic coke bottles. His contraption is revolver based and has valves on each coke bottle. There is some sort of barrel which looks like the arrows sleeve over. Sort of like a giant Nerf blaster on steroids. He utilizes a battery powered screwdriver to spin the wheel of arrows. As each valve reaches the 12 o’clock position, the valve is released and the air rushes out pushing the arrow off the barrel.

It is rather impressive and simple.

    A shame you’ve linked to someone else posting his video on Facebook, rather than embedding his video directly.

    Check out his “weaponized beard”! Yes he shaves his beard and uses it to reinforce rosin in fabricating a slingshot. This man is AWSOME! It is a shame that he is in Germany where his “experimental license is restricted”.

    Hmm… I know that blowguns are felony weapons to possess in California, so I wonder if air powered arrow launchers would fall into that ban?

    Remember, this is the same state that bootstrapped a ban on police batons into a ban on sticks!

      Do you have to kick your firewood into the ring?

    What ever happened to the zombie film he was making?

    Pistol Grip, Full Auto, Assault Styling, Untraceable Ammo, Strange Accent- Pretty sure this meets the weapons ban in California and Massachusetts.
    BTW- “Coke bottle gatling in full auto. HA HA HA”. So cool.

    That is freaking cool.
    Honestly ive always been deathly afraid of being shot with an arrow.
    Id take a bullet first any day.

      I am too after seeing the opening “firefight” if you will in the Revenant, where those trappers got mauled up.

        Havent seen it yet, ill have to go sometime without the GF.

  • FriendOfJohnnyM

    That slingshot guy is a true genius, and a cool guy.

  • Leo

    Cool! I love to see replacing coke bottles with the real pressurized cans and shorter arrows. This thing should be amazing!

    • iksnilol

      Longer arrows = longer barrels

      Since it is completely unregulated if the barrel goes inside the arrow and not the opposite.

  • Kirk Newsted

    I love this guy. He would be the coolest neighbor ever.

  • iksnilol

    Hmm, I wonder about a single shot or double shot version (one bottle in stock and one as a horizontal forergrip).

    Has he posted the mechanism? I’d like to try to make a simplified version that fires one or two shots.

    Oh man this is giving me ideas. What would it take to launch a Zulu Speer……….

  • DanGoodShot

    I love that big jolly dude! That thing is freaking cool. What that guy can make with a few boards, screaws and rubber bands (coke bottles in this case) is simply outstanding.

    Someone needs to try this thing with airgun pellets.
