Old Slingshot mags- free to collect.
« on: August 09, 2020, 07:34:09 PM »
Hi all

I have ‘hard copy’ Slingshots I want to clear from storage. They’d be FREE to collect to the lucky recipient (N E Hampshire, GU34 2RY postcode).

 Years 1975-‘76-‘77, issue #s 57 to 71.

Years 1986 to 2004, issue #s 123 to 237.

Most in very good condition, a couple with a little storage fading/minor mould marks.

Message me?

I believe her letter has been known to inundate certain mailboxes...😊

Seriously though, the ‘buyer’ got a bargain - he was doing some military research, and just paid postage for the 18.5 kg box to be shipped, and thereby gained a whole heap of Slingshots. At least they went to a ‘good home’ (and my shelves have breathed a sigh of relief).
