    This was a gift for my neighbor after giving me the mass amount of maple laminant. Grip inspired by the "Bad Company" design posted by member Mhpr262 (Mopper at SSF). My neighbor is an extreme newb with an unhealthy fear of low forks and hand hits... So this was an attempt to get him hooked. Hope you guys like it!

    Very nice- almost like the Chinese forks I've seen elsewhere. And the 'brace' is a great touch- well thought and made. He should get hooked with that one.

    Nice, I still need to build on similar to it. I have always wanted to.

    Excellent work!! That beaver-tail is a great addition and should make for a very comfortable shooter!
    Really impressed, great job!

    Thanks guys! It does shoot nice! I didn't want to give it up but he really hooked me up with the blanks..! I put 1"×9" active length straight cuts of Gold's green on it for him to learn the ropes with marbles. The forks are 1" wide with scalloped tips and a 2" gap but it was slapping the forks funny and throwing off the shot till i folded the bands and retied. Couldn't tell why cause i had the V of the trough correct. The fold at the fork was an instant accuracy correction for whatever reason.

    Great job on that slingshot! I love the beaver tail - very 1911, it looks very comfortable, and safe, to shoot.
