The Design

What originally started as a quick project for my young nephew quickly turned into designing and building a powerful pocket sized slingshot. After purchasing a TUKK a few months back and talking with Brad(@tacticalkeychains) and learning what he's all about I decided the TUKK and the slingshot were a perfect combo.

 One of the first steps in the design process was trying to determine the perfect size and shape while keeping the style of the TUKK in mind. The grooves on the sides are in 1/4" and centimeter increments.

 After that, the body of the TUKKSHOT was machined from a solid piece of aircraft grade 6061-T6 aluminum. The body was then inspected for fit and finish and any corrections were made until the prototype functioned flawlessly. 

I tested many different bands and decided on the Trumark RR-T tapered slingshot band. While the tapered band has the best feel for a slingshot of this size, the band can be replaced with any off the shelf 5/16" O.D. band.

Cerakote is a Polymer-Ceramic Composite coating that is offered on the TUKK-SHOT. The unique formulation used for Cerakote ceramic coating enhances a number of physical performance properties including abrasion/wear resistance, corrosion resistance, chemical resistance, impact strength, and hardness. The colors I will be offering are Graphite Black, Burnt Bronze, Zombie Green, NRA Blue, and possibly more.

Risks and challenges

As with any project there is some risk but due to the preparation and home work that has already been done, the project should go fairly smooth. The material and supplies are readily available and I am dedicated to give this project 110% until and even after the rewards have been shipped.

I do my best to keep my equipment maintained and in tip top shape but machine breakdowns are always an unexpected possibility that could slow down production.
