Introduction: RSS Feed - Raikou's Slingshot Sniper

Picture of RSS Feed - Raikou's Slingshot Sniper

Some of you might get the joke in the title, but anyways, this is my new gun that I'm publishing for Christmas. It is a slingshot, not a ram. This took a while to make, and I hope you all enjoy it. I haven't tested it very extensively, but it does go a good 70-80ish feet with the ammo I use. Of course, you can use different ammo.

Now, onto the main instructions.


Step 1: Barrel

This is basically just one big chunk. Everything else is covered in image notes.

Step 2: Stock

Hopefully, this won't take you long. It's another chunk. And, I know I'm lazy.

Step 3: The Mechanism/Handle.

Here's the mechanism.

Good luck.

Step 4: Assembly

The part we'll all been waiting for! Time to assemble your gun.

Step 5: Rubberbands

Here I will show you how to apply the rubberbands.

Step 6: Ammunition, Loading, and Firing

Before you can use the gun, you'll need ammunition. You can use Killerk's SR Ammo, my ammo, a red rod with a tan clip, or anything with a hook and a rod at the end.

I get around 80 or so feet with two New, tied #64's and my ammunition.
There are no pictures for loading and firing, but if you know how a slingshot gun works, you should have no difficulty.

Also, for those who can't figure it out, hook the ammunition onto the sling, then pull the ammo back and lock it into the mech. You lock the ammo by pushing the rod into the gun.

Here is a picture of ammo I like to use.

Step 7: Optional Extras

These are some things I have made for the tactical rails. They include a cheek rest, sights and foregrip.

These are pretty easy to make, so you shouldn't have any difficulty.

Step 8: You're Done! Congrats!

My personal preference for ammo has always been a blue or yellow rod with a two-slot grey connector on one end. Fits into this type of mech perfectly, is easier to hook the RB onto, and in fact I do that part after my ammo's in the mech for the sake of not accidentally hurting myself. This type of ammo has in the past drawn blood(unintentionally, but I'll get into that later) and put a sizable dent in drywall from about twenty feet. It was a mistake handing my version of a gun with this mech to my sister with ammo in it, even more so letting her within the reach of the end of the barrel. Luckily I wear glasses. Otherwise, I'd have one less eye.
