Yeah but can you put a bayonet on it?

What exactly is one supposed to do with it?

Its hardly readily transportable, inconspicuous in use or easily hidden in a coat pocket, like a traditional catapult.

Is it intended to be used as one of those big boys toys, like expensive golf clubs? Played with a few times when first acquired and then left in the corner of the box room gathering dust and cobwebs.

You can fire bolts from it as well as ball bearings

Its nowhere near 180LB In the video a pregnant woman cocks it while sitting on a chair!! Iam a big guy and I couldn't cock a 120LB sitting down!! I think its around 60lb. You cant shoot any arrows or bolts from it either as its loaded from the barrel and flights don't fit. So the flightless bolts are VERY inaccurate indeed!!

I fear you may well be right, good news though I will soon be doing some more testing with it so I may be able to give you an imperial answer and do some videos of ballbearings smashing things up, which will be fun
