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.

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!!

So there have been a few different names suggested and references to knights in this thread. The obvious choice would be to call them Excalibur. That would be fitting, but too obvious and easy. I did a little research and this is what I WILL BE CALLING THEM. I am not suggesting that this is what Island Made has, or should, call them. Again, this is for my own amusement and not an official name, but what I am calling them. No one but Shane should determine what to call the frames he has created.

This is fitting because one of my all time favorite pass times is vermin/pest control with an air rifle. Mostly rats and starlings. And since to me these frames just scream hunter to me, the one with the more angular forks and pointed bottom shall henceforth be known to me as VERMINFATE!

To differentiate the frame with the rounded forks and bottom of grip, I named it after a sword described as being made from celestial bronze and regular mortal steel. Different materials, but the image is fitting. Plus I just think the name sounds tough and cool (and this is after all a tough and cool frame!). I will call that one BACKBITER!

A bit silly perhaps, but we're supposed to be having fun here!!

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!!

Many of my designs and builds have been named by a now 12, almost 13, year old when she was little.

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:).
