I really like your design and I made a version of it with a plastic bow instead of spring but I 'm not sure if I can post it as a remix or make since it's a "share alike". It shoots and can make holes in a newspaper at short range, but it's probably not as strong as a metal spring, yet more convenient to make as I really don't know where to get springs from without destroying a clock or a toy or waiting until one breaks by itself.

HI Love your work, you should post dimensions for the spring parts so this is more replicate-able. Also, just a thought but it would be cool i fyou printed a bracelet that this could mount to your wrist. The 'wrist-a-ballista' lol

Thank you! You're right getting the right spring is the hardest part to replicate this thing. I added some dimensions in the thing details. And it was kinda the idea to make a small arm-mountable weapon. But I just made so many versions that I left this one like it was, without a wrist band.
