Recently I got an atomizer slingshot and a ball refill for my birthday from a friend. Of course, I knew it was going to suck, but the refill gave me an idea to have a higher ROF.


You will need
A small screwdriver
2 inch wide tube of some sort
(12 inches should give you about 5 extra balls.)
Tape

The first thing you need to do is look at the top of the slingshot. See that knobby like thing? That's what is keeping the balls from falling out normally. There is no need to cut this off though. If you look at the back of it, you will see a screw. Unscrew it and the knob will just fall off.

Now for the next step. Put the tube on top of the slingshot.(There is no need to make an angle on the tube) It shouldn't go over it or inside it. Now get tape. Use lots and lots and lots of tape to make it sturdy as possible.

Not done yet. The tube I had a convenient cap. If yours doesn't you could fashion yourself one, or another knobby like thing, or just use the one you unscrewed and put it there.

This mod increases the ROF a lot. This gun/slingshot still isn't very good at all. If it does happen to fall into your hands, I reccomend doing this. It also kinda makes it look like a sword...

I'll have pictures up later. Sorry, if it's hard to understand, I've never explained a mod before, just ask me and I will try to clear things up.

Has anyone seen the Slingshot mod that allowed it to shoot micros (I'm not sure which Slingshot it was), it looked pretty good. If that was the same version, you could do that, but it would totally eliminate the point of this mod. EDIT: I found the site. It was Nerf City. It should work on the ASS (Atomizer Slingshot).

That's cool, Nerf Monkey. You're right though, this would elimanate the point of my mod,
but since these things are really cheap, I could buy one, mod it to shoot micros, and incorporate the idea of this mod into that one.
Whoa...

What did you say about ranges? I have never shot one of these before so I don't know what to expect.

Including bouncing/skipping whatever, I got:
1. 10 ft 1 in
2. 12 ft 1.5 in
3. 15 ft 10 in
4. 15 ft 10 in
5. 16 ft
I was indoors, so that means that the range of the range is 0ft (it happens) - 16.5 feet
The averarge from my trials is about 14 ft.
PissBacon, I don't think there are any mods to increase range. My mod only increases the ROF.

thanks. I'm not that surprised though, since it's just a slingshot after all.

I've done that exact same thing on my ripsaw, except later on I decided to trade teh tube for a 3-liter pop bottle. Now it holds 20-30 balls instead of 3. Plus teh ripsaw actually has good ranges of 40-50 ft. Good mod but I would suggest doing it on a ripsaw if you can get ahold of one. Best... ballgun...ever

If you made that thing a little longer and wrapped it in foam, you could use it at as a hand-to-hand weapon -- oh wait, 14 feet you say? Nevermind, it already is a H2H weapon...

Hey, are the Nerf slingshots powered by a bungie? If so, I assume it's weak. Has anybody ever thought of replacing the bungie with a more powerful one, and/or adding more bungies to it? Also, you could add a small barrel to the front to make the shots more accurate.

Has anyone ever thought of using a REAL slingshot? I think they're way too powerful to be used safely with micro or mega darts, but they would be great for balls! I mean, seeing as what they can do to paintballs, I don't want to get hit by a dart coming out of a slingshot... Anyways, how awesome would it be if you aimed one of these babies at someone, and it shot the ball like 50 feet?! That would awesome! Okay, I've used the word "awesome" too many times...

Yes, the Slingshots are powered by rubber band type things. But another problem I've heard is actually trying to just hit the ball itself through the hole, so I don't know if a barrel would really help all that much.
