Dead Ringer BB slingshot shown with tubular bands

Dead Ringer- BB Slingshot

(60 reviews) Write a Review

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 standard with our BB flatbands made from Theraband Blue and our top grain leather BB pouch.  You may purchase the tubular BB bands here and be sure to check out our videos showing how to modify the tubular BB bands as shown in the alternate photos above.

    Dead Ringer B.B. slingshot

    Posted by Ken Carter on Jan 15th 2018

    Product was everything it was said to be. Excellent for youth or someone who wants to continue shooting but on a budget. Fits nicely in your and allows for a solid hold. Definitely recommending this to anyone who shoots or are thinking about letting their children shoot

    Nice slingshot

    I like my Dead Ringer but wish thar it came with the option of ordering it with the band setup shown in the photo. It's my first slingshot and I found it difficult to tie the flat band. Still a very nice shooter.

    Great little slingshot fits right in the pocket, hopefully after I go through a jar of 6000 bb's l might be a decent shot .

    "Its bigger than it looks!"

    Posted by on Sep 21st 2017

    I already own and enjoy, five awesome Simpleshot Slingshots but I've got to admit that The Dead Ringer is my favorite to shoot!
    I ordered my Dead Ringer about three weeks ago and I haven't been separated from it since it arrived; yes its tiny but bigger than it looks when it come to the fun I have shooting it... it's a lot of fun!
    The Dead Ringer is small enough to fit in my pocked, deadly accurate, quiet when shot, the ammo is cheap and a blast to pass around to friends while we are hanging out in my back yard BBQ-ing.
    There's no doubt I'll be ordering a few more Dead Ringers to give as stocking stuffers this upcoming holiday season!

    Ultra pocketable & excellent for SS technique practice

    Posted by Ivan on Sep 6th 2017

    This is first time using very small mini poly shooter with a finger hole. Using the very compact Dead Ringer permits plinking almost anywhere using very low cost BBs. Most importantly, I can now put in more practice refining my technique & experiment with other shooting styles. It teaches you more sensitivity of pouch grip, aiming, release, etc. The easy pull blue flat bands shoots safely for indoors with just enough zip. If more power is wanted for outdoors using BBs, go with 1/8" single black latex tubes that have a more firmer pull.

    Excellent BB Shooter

    Posted by Robert on Aug 17th 2017

    I was surprised at the size of this shooter when I first saw it but even with my big mits I find the finger hole in the grip easy to hold and rock solid. Have shot 100 or so shots with .177 bb's at grasshoppers 12' away with great accuracy and a blast to shoot. I am shooting tubes on it right now but am going to try out the flat bands soon. Well made, sized to accommodate many shooters, solid accurate shooter. Thank you Nathan and everyone at Simpleshot. Shipping and service is super!

    Effortless fun!!

    The Dead Ringer is excellent dedicated 177cal BB shooting slingshot, Personally pinch grip works best for me , slicing through cans at 12 yards with amazing accuracy with only few hours of practice, effortless fun pulling back these quality bb blue dedicated flat bands. Cheers!

    Great little shooter

    Posted by Unknown on Jun 22nd 2017

    Great little shooter for everyone. I've been shooter with it since I received it. A bit small for my hand but still getting used to it. Haven't tried tubes yet but great fun with bands. I would definitely recommend for anyone.
