Introduction: 8 Shot Revolving Slingshot

Picture of 8 Shot Revolving Slingshot

Hey guys,
I've seen this idea in the past, but I never saw it completed. So over the last few weeks, when I had some free time for a change, I sat down and worked on it.   This is the fastest firing sling gun I've made and has a rage of 100+ feet when fired at an angle. I have to have it propped up on one end because I built it with a flat base. If you want you could use more parts and build a better base.

Basically there are 8 sling guns on a cylinder shaped structure. Each "barrel" has a bullet locking system that faces towards the center of the cylinder, but it is not connected to the main gun and frame so it can spin freely. This has one trigger that fires the gun, and a second "trigger" that moves the cylinder then locks it in place while the main trigger fires the gun. When you pull the second trigger and the cylinder is moved to new barrel the bullet locking system and the main trigger lines up, letting to fire the gun.

The gun isn't that pretty, but I really didn't feel like spending the time on making it look nice. I have to many things to work on. But the main part of this whole gun is the way the trigger works.

It's good to be back on Instructables. Tell me what you think, it only takes 5 seconds.

This is really cool

Looks cool!

Chuck Norris called... he wants his sidearm back

Mr. Muggle (author)2011-04-29

so it's semi auto? with 2 triggers, interesting

I would not call it semi auto because you have to pull the second trigger.

so do you have to wait a while after pulling the first trigger before you pull the second one? By the way this is also possible with a ram gun why did you decide to build it whit slingshots? more range?

mettaurlover (author)Mr. Muggle2011-09-17

More range, more powerful, more terrifying.

No just long enough for it to get in place. For one I like slingshots better, but mostly because it adds a new level to the gun. Plus you'll always get better ranges with slingshots.

This brings me back to the idea of a repeating slingshot...

The Jamalam (author)2011-05-04

Epic win :D

Oblivitus (author)2011-04-30

Win. Video please.

It's already half gone, I needed the parts for a rifle sized one. There will be a video for the rifle sized one when it gets here.

Okay, cool.

mahmel (author)2011-05-02

Awesome! Can you make a vid? Coz I can't really see how it works. 5*!

~KGB~ (author)2011-05-01

pure epicness! =D

~KGB~ (author)Killer~SafeCracker2011-05-02

no prob =D

Holy toast, that's HUGE!(TWSS)
Is it handheld or mounted?

This one is mounted. If this gets good feedback I'll try to make a rifle sized one.

I'd like to see that!!! BTW, how do you make really strong but small axle for a rotating gun, without using a single rod??? (I am making a model of Halo's rocket launcher, but can't get the shoulder mount to work... :(

I used a metal rod.

Okay, thanks!

Could I have a go at a rifle- sized one?

I would like to try first if you don't mind. Seeing its my idea and all. But if I can't get it you're welcome to try.

"my idea and all" yet again, another stupid lie!

I believe the design for this and the idea of the design is my idea. Thank you.

Mkay. I don't think it is too hard, just basically shrink everything down by 1 rod size, like the barrels can be a white rod instead of a blue. Good luck.

Yeah, I'd probably make it 4 shots. It cant be a white rod because they aren't wide enough for a good barrel. If you want to help I'll send you some pictures when I start working on it.

mettaurlover (author)2011-05-01

POST. I'll build if you do. And probably turn it into a non-mounted gun.

Ok, that's my plan, but it will need a new trigger so it will take some time.

Ah. Alright, works for me.

nice dude :D

make an inble and make it handheld/rifle-ish, you have my vote :P

I hope to build one soon! thanks :)
