No introductions needed here. You're looking at close to 4 feet / 120cm worth of slingshot.

It's not fair to compare the RS-X8 to your typical hand-held slingshot. For a start, you'll be loading up the tension by anchoring it down with your feet and then pulling up on the rear handle.

The frame and rails are made from SAE 304-Grade Stainless Steel. The trigger release and slingshot mechanism from 5052-Aircraft Grade Aluminum. The sliding mechanism includes four rows of internal ball bearings to ensure smooth operation during setup.

The BSA Optics 4-16x44 Tactical Rifle Scope is available as an optional accessory. The Picatinny rail is 20mm x 115mm should you wish to install any aftermarket scopes or laser sights.

If you're looking for a discrete slingshot that fits into your backpack, this isn't it. If you're aiming to take out a Cane Toad at 50m then this unit is a good place to start.

Shoots straight!

Very impressed with the power and accuracy. Smooth shipping to NSW. No issues.

rs-x8 review

Easy enough to assemble... Once the sight is calibrated properly its bang on deadly accurate at 50m and no problem reaching 100m plus...

good accuracy and power

Consistent 3 inch grouping at 40 yards.

J. Anderson
reloading is a pain

Ended up returning mine in exchange for the RS-X7. this unit is too slow to reload after every shot.

M Ebert
Good accuracy out of the box

Only downside is that the scope needs to be calibrated every 100 or so shots as the bands will weaken overtime.

D. Mike
Solid unit, but slow shipping

Ordered mine before they started shipping domestically so I had to wait 3+ weeks

Deevan Kumar
Good for hunting

Feels more satisfying and skillful to use then the .22 rifle, protects the property, crops and chickens from rabbits and wild dogs have sighted it in to be accurate for about 40m ammo is more abundant then your normal crossbows and firearms a good rock will do the trick, doesn't wake up the family in the middle of the night when livestock is under attack definitely of Australian hunting standards

Great for plinking targets in backyard

The only downside is that the rubbers last about 3-6 months depending on how much you use them

Ruben Moreno
Sturdy, accurate, even without a scope

I tested the accuracy and it is right on. Straight and centered.
