There’s nothing quite as joyous as the grin on Joerg Sprave’s face and his manaical laugh when he fires up one of his over-the-top homebrew weapons. In this clip, he shows off a few of his creations, a couple of commercially-available crossbows, and the real reason you came here, an insane drill-powered machine bow at 7:15.
THE BEST Joerg Sprave
Weapon enthusiast Joerg Sprave shows off another really cool build. Dubbed the “Sliding Legolini,” this compact bow reloads and repeats with every draw. It can fire at a rate up to 140 arrows per minute, though it only has a 4 bolt capacity. Now, Joerg needs to build a magazine for this thing.
Weapon maker Joerg Sprave is always up for a challenge. When the makers of the game War Robots asked him if he’d build a robot, he obliged them with the world’s deadliest vacuum cleaner – which carries and fires a Glock. Never yell at this robot for missing a spot!
Joerg Sprave shows off a deadly air powered gun that’s capable of launching a 1/4 lb arrow at up to 250 mph, easily piercing through armor. Shockingly, its arrow-over-the-barrel design would allow it to be classified as a “toy” in Germany. Perhaps they need to rethink that.
The whole point of NERF weapons is that they’re supposed to be harmless. But that didn’t stop weapon maker and modder Joerg Sprave from amping up the a NERF gun’s spring, and transforming the soft foam darts into deadly projectiles. We love Joerg’s maniacal laugh.
Joerg Sprave sells bottle caps equipped with a rubber valve. They’re used to fill soda bottles with pressurized air, turning them into noisy shooting targets. But since he’s insane, he decided to turn the bottles into a weapon. Coming this winter: No Country for Old Sven.
