While these awesome homemade rubber band weapons may not be as powerful as their bullet-shooting counterparts, they are definitely no slouch. They range from an FN P90 submachine gun to a giant slingshot crossbow. Continue reading to see five incredible examples.
5. FN P90 Submachine Gun
Based on the FN P90 submachine gun, this wooden version shoots rubber bands, complete with magazine and “even an indicator to tell how much ammo youve got left.” That’s not all, “inside, there’s a complex mechanism to allow you to shoot as many rubber bands as you want.”
4. Rubber Band Gatling Gun
More than just a toy, this crazy rubber band gatling gun is capable of firing 100-bands in just seconds, or “as fast as you can turn the crank.” One caveat: the loading will take take much longer than shooting the rubber bands.
3. Pump-Action Shotgun
Not just any band-shooting toy gun, this one features pump-action, complete with “a feeding mechanism and loads itself automatically when you rack the slide.” It was built by none other than Joerg Sprave of The Slingshot Channel.
2. Slingshot Crossbow
DIY weapon man Joerg Sprave is back at it again, and this time, he unveils a slingshot crossbow capable of firing two bands accurately and simultaneously. He’ll be teaching all of us how to build our very own in an upcoming video.
1. Slingshot Band Cannon
Though this slingshot cannon fires exercise bands, it’s still the world’s first nonetheless. That’s not all, this contraption can also fire “a 3-inch steel ball over 650 feet through the air.”
