I bet a motorcycle or automotive shock absorber could be turned into a wicked spring rifle... might be on the dangerous side tho! Inspired by seeing one in the dumpster the other day.

It would probably look like a ratchet mechanism on an ancient ballista. Doubtless an interesting project but on this scale pneumatics are so much more practical in terms of using off-the-shelf materials.
