The Dead Ringer is a dedicated BB shooting slingshot made for .177 caliber BB's. Of course, any projectle or bands can be used with this virtually indestructible 1/2" thick HDPE slingshot, but its ultra compact size makes it perfect for small ammo. The traditional 'pinky hole' is situated to accommodate the ring finger rather than the pinky, offering a secure and comfortable fork supported or full pinch grip. This is also a great slingshot for kids or those with very small hands, as both the pinky and ring finger can fit in the hole for an extra secure grip.
This slingshot comes with our BB flatbands made from Theraband Blue or tubular bands, each with our top grain leather BB pouch.
- Overall Height: 3-9/16"

Just got this because I like the idea of shooting BB's because I have lots of them available. Didn't know what to expect because this is a very small slingshot. I changed my usual grip and found that wrapping my fingers around it works great. It is fast and accurate. This will allow lots of fun shooting. I just got back into shooting slingshots.
Great slingshot for plinking and bringing a smile to your face! Cheap ammo, easy to shoot, and hours of fun. I haven't had a slingshot in years, and recently got the urge to get another when a friend showed me his Dead Ringer. I ordered mine and haven't put it down since it arrived. Soda cans and plastic bottles don't stand a chance!
Lovely small slingshot for plinking, but it's completely at home with bigger bandsets/ammo. Easily pocketable if that's something you're looking for. I've been shooting it with looped tubes and 3/8 steel for taking doves and it works perfectly.
I ordered the dead ringer as a bb shooter to practice with. It did not disappoint. I have large hands but thumb brace and ring finger hole gives very good stability. Fast velosity with .177 bb. Delivery was fast too. Thanks guys!
Take the Dead Ringer and BB's any where you go. It keeps your hand in without having to pack along all the heavy artillery.
I bought 2 of these(1 for a friend), we both found these great little slingshots, Ive fitted single 25-20 Theraband Gold an even with a slight overhang they shoot well as the tips are slightly scalloped so draw back even. I may try a narrower cut and also some looped tubes. I have always been a fan of small slingshots and this one is great, takes looped tubes and flats it is well made cleanly, finished with no flaws complete with nice simpleshot emblem on one side. Also the delivery was fast but as always be aware customs charges can be applied for non US residents. All in all very pleased. Thanks Simpleshot
