Hey guys,
Finished these guys up and sent them out this week.

Another brass heavy hitter. And a new design, thanks to the help of StringSlap, through some conversation back and forth we came up with this guy. Hope you all like it. I asked my daughter what I should name it, she said it should be called "thumper" so I guess that's what we're going with. (She's the boss)

I hope these are enjoyed as much as I've enjoyed making them.

If either of these names are taken please let me know I don't want to over step anybody. Thanks Textile Automotive lighting Grey Motor vehicle Personal protective equipment

Mine all mine! Hahahahahaaaa!!

Enough evil laughing. Thank you Shane for taking me up on my offer and for making these from scratch for me! I can't imagine not liking these. There's nothing subtle about these big beautiful brutes! Gonna put big bands and big pouches on 'em and shoot big steel! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I'll get a review out after I've had a chance to shoot them. Stay tuned!
Haha you are so very welcome Steve, glad I could do them up for you.

I hope you have a blast with them my friend.

Oooh... that has a nice shape! It kinda has a medieval vibe and it looks like something a knight would take on a quest to kill an evil creature of the night terrorising a poor defenceless village ...I like it and I think you guys should get a batch cast by Proshot... I'd buy one!
Haha thanks!! I can see the medieval vide. Glad you like it.

Really nice you could make dedicated OTT and TTF and even tube exchangable forks. Since they are only attached via a screw I think that would be pretty sweet 1 body and 3 different heads for say depending on what you feel like shooting that day :)
I am open for a trade lol.

Thank you. Yes you could definitely make them with interchangeable forks for sure.

Haha send me a message sometime I'm sure we can figure something out:).

IM your going to need some metal stock I am thinking and lots of night shifts
I think your right PB. I've already had to order more stock. And I've been at work an hour early and working through every break the last few weeks working on frames lol

All in good fun, I do enjoy it. It's nice when your trade and your hobbies come together.

Now yas all have me thinking......a single handle, with lanyard hole, tapped on the bottom for accessories, with 3 different fork styles. Ott, ttf, and tube shooter.

It would all have to go together as a kit. That way the profile and grind lines all match perfectly.

Kinda like the Simple shot hammer....only not hammer grip.

Thank for all the ideas guys!!

Those are really great names my friend!! I truly hope they live up to your expectations.

Where the names "heavy hitter" and "thumper" come from, my little brother absolutely loves the original design, and he says (although it's a head game) with the weight of the brass it always feels like it has so much power. And him and I have taken a lot of game with them this year and that's what we kinda have always called it.

As for "thumper" my daughter has been going through a stage where she want everything named after her. And I can't call it "Jaydan Rose". But I have always called her thumper. Lol.

But Steve your names are MUCH more exciting!!
I hope to se some pics soon if that VARMINFATE on top of some pests!!

Very nice!! :bowdown:

Making frames at work, I have a whole maintenance shop at my disposal in the evenings, but I'd never think about tinkering with a frame while at work!! :naughty:
Thanks!!

I don't work on frames while on the clock (wink wink) lol. Just before, and during breaks.....or you know a few min here and there waiting for welding. Then you have to wait for that to cool of course:).
