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.

    Neat, but use the +P Bandset

    Posted by Brian DeCostero on Oct 22nd 2016

    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

    Posted by Geoff on Sep 19th 2016

    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.

    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!

    Big fun, little package

    Posted by Rob on May 30th 2016

    Just like the title says, this little thing is tons of fun. The tbb that comes on it is on I ordered the bb tube set from here and they are better IMO. But I took some scrape tbg and cut it to 3/8" x 7" and it will zip bb's and 1/4" steel at supersonic speeds with no hand slap. The only reason for 4 stars and not 5 is it's a little slick. You have to have a good grip on it. I've shot it three ways; vertical with thumb support on the V, pinch grip, and index finger wrapped and thump support. Anyway you hold it, it shoots great. Lots of fun!

    Exactly what I expected

    Posted by Nicholas on May 26th 2016

    It's a bit small, but isn't that the point? I've got average sized hands and it fits in my palm just fine. It can easily be completely concealed in your hand. The blue bands it comes with do pretty OK with .177. Been experimenting with 15mm TBG and it throws 1/4 steel great. Tons of fun!

    Mini-beast!!!!

    This is my second slingshot from simpleshot, I also have had the peerless which I love! This is a great slinger! It's ideal for plinking with .177 bb's or if you want to turn it into a high-impact slingshot you most certainly can. I equipped mine with double Theraband gold and shooting 16 mm lead balls with it. It's pocketable and concealable at the same time, it's an all-day carry for me. Thanks Nathan, simple shot and flipping out , you guys are the best!! Greetings from Turkey!
