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.
- Overall Height: 3-9/16"

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

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!

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!
Must have slingshot

Great little, take anywhere slingshot. Small enough so you can have it with you at all times. I carry this one with me wherever I'm going, just to get a little more practise in!!!!
Great little shooter

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.

Beautiful bb shooter.

My 4 year old loves it.

It fits my boys had perfect. I shortened up the bands a bit and he is nearly hitting cans now but getting better every time. This little slinger is perfect for him.
Neat, but use the +P Bandset

The Dead Ringer is a bit small, even for my raccoon-sized hands, but I like it. I couldn't figure out how to use the finger ring though.
I put a double-set of +P Bandsets, as I like being able to puncture aluminum cans. If I want to use it indoors, I just use airsoft pellets.
Overall, a neat, little slingshot.

I wanted a SS that I could shoot airsoft BB's in the house with. This little one is FUN. I can't shoot at 30 feet indoors, but using the smaller ammo @ 17ft on smaller targets is just as fun.
Nice little shooter

When I banded up this little shooter with the supplied BB bands I was a little disappointed in the power that I was seeing. I guess I was expecting something to punch holes neatly through soda cans, this was not the case. I found out after shooting the "Dead Ringer" for a little while that it sometimes takes a few shots to break through the can, after that it seems easy to penetrate the soft aluminum.

I love the dead ringer slingshot, it's so small and nice in my pocket. Small but powerful enough to almost anything. The next will be xmas gifts.

A fine frame very pocketable,
Very affordable and shoots a variety of set ups in flats and tubes ! A fine addition to any EDC pocket.
great in pocket

I REALLY like this little guy! Been using with looped 2040 bands and .36 lead, very nice combination. Looped bands change out very quickly on this configuration. Good for lots more than just BB's. I do find it more sensitive to grip variations than my larger slingshots, but that shouldn't surprise anyone. It's so small and easy to carry, I end up shooting it more than any others I own. Very worthwhile and makes me smile!
