Metal Gear Solid 4 Rubber Band Gun
Metal Gear Solid 4 fans must have gone crazy when they see this. The Silver Wolf pistol, Snake’s chosen weapon, was recreated here as a Japanese fan’s stainless steel and rubber band DIY masterpiece. Constructed with numerous cross-drilled plates and featuring both a laser sight and integrated flashlight, the Rubber Band Gun looks to be impressively accurate and quite painful.
Firewheel Rubber Band Gun
If you think that you have seen something similar to this gun somewhere, you are probably right. This gun was featured on numerous action movies, including Galaxy Quest.

Rubber Band Defender Arduino Robot
A DIY robot has taken the rubber fight gun to a hi-tech level. This robot was built on a black & decker pocket power with a rather crude rubber band gun attached on top. The rubber bands are loaded onto the tines of a servo modified for continuous rotation. Each 1/4 turn makes a rubber band fire. The robot fires at everything “in range” which the creator set to about 15 inches.

Rubber Band Shooter Pen
This cute handy rubber band shooter is not just a toy. Take the end cap off and you’ve got a ballpoint pen. It also has a key-ring for holding rubber bands.
This rubber band gun is hardly a gun. The Ringshot is a slingshot reinforcement for your fingers to avoid the pain caused in bloody rubber band fights. A hollowed sheath of stainless steel makes a rigid, immovable ‘L’ of your thumb and index finger, allowing the mounted rubber band to be drawn back without causing the loops to wildly snap off your fingers.
Rubber Band ClipGun
Not all the weapons look frightening. This simply beautiful ClipGun was designed by designer Shira Nahon to bring art into war. Aptly called “Piu Piu”, it is a nod towards the sounds we make when we pretend to “shoot” our friends.
Concealed Rubber Band Gun
A three-shot, semi-automatic rubber band gun is small and slim enough to be hidden entirely in an old converted iPod. You can sneak it anywhere with you without getting any unnecessary attention.
