    I really like this PVC. It is easy to make, thin, and just cool stuff.

    Never thought about using the thinner stuff as a core. Thanx for showing me that.

    Yeah, those are nice and ECD thin! Was that one second from the left a band snap at the fork? No criticism at all but the thought makes my left eye cringe. . . Also, like master Flipgun noted, core sample, BRILLIANT!

    Cool! How much do the thinner frames handle?

    I would never put on doubles they flew a little with singles, but I am sure that they. Will not snap.

    I am using the magic rubber from BV. It seems to snap at the. Fork no matter what. Did the same on my naturals.

    Good shooters.
    PVC is strong and it will bend before it snaps.

    Do remember that unlike HDPE you can glue layers of PVC together. You can also add some Chicago bolts in a few places.

    I like PVC, material is inexpensive, the bigger bore you buy the thicker the wall is. A cheap 10$ heat gun is your key to the whole kingdom. You can cut it, drill it, sand it, there are no limits. Whatever your imagination can come up with. The world is your oyster!

    This is my favorite shooter.

    Doesn't look like much, but it shoots like gangbusters. Nice tight groups, nice and fast, hits hard. And if the rubber breaks, or I change to flat bands, or different tubes its dead easy to adjust length. No its not fancy. Fancy doesn't put meat in the pot and never will. Image is nothing, function is all. Form follows function.

    I love it too. It is Bill hays covert hunter. A quick google search will bring you the template that I printed. And he and I both approve of copying the deseign.
