All our metal catapults are manufactured by us using traditional sand casting and hand-finishing methods. We manufacture and finish all our cast metal slingshots in our family owned and run foundry in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, and we have over 35 years experience manufacturing high quality castings for a variety of engineering and architectural industries. We only use high-quality virgin ingots in all our castings to make sure we only produce the best quality cast metal catapults.
All our aluminium, brass and bronze catapults are cast by the hands of our experienced foundrymen using traditional sand casting methods before being finished by our skilled fettling and polishing craftsmen. Our city has a long established worldwide reputation in casting and polishing hand finished products and we’re proud to carry on these traditional methods of casting and finishing by making quality, durable metal catapults for the slingshot community.
We’ve had the opportunity to work alongside some great and very skilled people when designing and making these catapults and we’d like to say a big thank you to all the knowledgeable designers and craftsmen we’ve worked with, and the organisers of competitions and shoots who have developed and promoted our great sport and created communities where shooters can meet and share knowledge (as well as making the sport accessible for anybody interested).
We’d also like to thank the YouTuber’s who put so much work in their channels to teach and help promote the sport, and of course thanks to everyone in the worldwide slingshot community that has supported us and helped us grow so we can keep making proper catapults here in the UK.
We attend shooting competitions as part of Team Gamekeeper Pro-Shot and we have a Facebook Page – Team Gamekeeper Pro-Shot – for the latest news and information about what we and the gamekeeper pro-shot team have been up to.
