Description

*[Basic intro & basic descriptionfirst released November 26, 2016, the latest is from 2017)~)& is easy to 3dprint
[The full details, full description & disclaimer is after this basic introduction & basic description]

Correction as of thursday may 21st 2020 the pellet slinger is now only meant for target practice but the designs will still be available & update as of july 23rd 2020 the pellet slinger is a sign of peace for the designer as it is a fun way to relax if a tragic thing happens and want to heal)

*check your local laws before Downloading or 3DPrinting this is for responsible owners only
This is a low powered slingshot designed to shoot off pellets( also known as bullets)
also just a heads up warning
this can be cause welts to someone if misused at someone which is why you see this warning but follow the guidelines and then its safe

But where ever you use one its important to Be a responsible owner and handle properly at all times (and some basic range safety rules)& follow all laws & regulations and all proper protocol

also do not shoot people except in a established and controlled war games where the consent of all players are signed , do not brandish as people might not realize its too short to dangle any arrows or darts and confuse it with a mini crossbow
where legal you can shoot house spiders
The designer & publisher is not responsible for any misuse which we condemn any misuse
When someone 3DPrint the design they are the manufacturer and has responsibilities

**Other then the 3dprinted parts you will need rubber bands for high power fold a size 117B big band in half and put that on the prongs but for more mild shooting use size 64 rubber bands which are ( 3&1/2 inch x ¼ inch)
Another thing I included some extra pellets feel free to print as many as you need

  • to use *

Also to shoot there are two official ways to launch
* the first is a two handed method by holding with one hand and like a pinch draw in archery clamp down with your thumb while pulling back ( this can be hard on your thumb but will deliver the most firepower
* The second is to pre draw the elastics then slip on a bullet then fling the elastic this is not as effective on certain angles
