The famous German inventor Jörg Sprave surprised the world again by making in his garage the most powerful arrow shooter ever made at home. Today we will show you this weapon and tell you about that its enormous stopping power. Pneumatic arrow shooter made by Jörg seems quite mediocre at first glance. Primitive design looks like a design of a primitive shotgun, but despite this simplicity it has a truly killing efficiency.
The trunk of the arrow shooter is made of aluminum tube while handle and trigger – made of wood. One can fill the air pneumatic mechanism by means of a bicycle pump. As a shell inventor used special arrow made from scrap aluminum tube of slightly smaller diameter than the trunk, and a nail as a cap.
Velocity of the arrow in flight is 246 ft/s. Stopping power, according to the inventor, comparable to the small-caliber revolver, because the energy of shot reaches 404 J. Arrow fired from a distance of 4-5 meters easily pierces the target of three thick plywood boards glued together -. Could you imagine what it can do to a man!
Of course, the design is not without drawbacks. The inability of accurate centering and characteristics of the arrow structure leads to the fact that the weapon has a very mediocre accuracy. Of course, it is not a tool for real firefight or hunting. In spite of the high stopping power, the arrow is rapidly losing energy during the flight, and the weapon requires to spend some time woth with the pump to reload it.
