Hahaha... "Chinese Gapper" sounds so wrong.

Just received in the mail. It'll be my last Aliexpress slingshot for a while.

It's got a 1" forkgap that I guess would qualify it as a gapper? Forktips are 20mm wide on a frame with a 67mm forkwidth (2 5/8" and 105mm tall (just over 4").

Arrived as pictured. Whoever installed the parachord wrap did a pretty good job and I might just leave it on. The steel is sandblasted and has a silky smooth feel. I will just ignore the top slots. Surprisingly comfortable to hold.

Gonna be shooting this tonight as soon as I get home

You already know I like it. I received 2 exactly like it already although I think only 1 with that color cord :) We have very similar tastes in Chinese slingshots. I even like the top slots. Just sometimes takes 3 hands to band them :)

I would shoot that where did you find that
Thanks Guys... I didn't manage much shooting with it last night coz I spent most of my evening sanding up a Tiny Turtle I am working on. The Chinese Gapper is very well made and shoots sweetly. It has a good heft and is not too heavy. The pinky hole position worked out perfectly for my hand - big hands might struggle with it though you can always ignore it. This is my first experience of a gapper and I must say that I really like it. It's kinda like a PFS I can aim if I want to. This could easily be an EDC due to its shooting versatility and pocketability. Best of both world's fork gap (as MJ says!). I think I might go looking for more gappers now to add to the collection.

@Fiveshooter - I did suspect that you might like this one too lol!

I got it from "ccsport" here:

Thanks Urbanshooter. I just ordered a full titanium slingshot and a few minor things from a Chinese vendor that is new to me so I may wait a bit on that one.

If they are honest about the shipping speed being 7 to 15 days to the USA for free shipping there are a few more things I want there.

This is the sling I settled on and even the blue / purple palm swells are suppose to be TC21 titanium like the rest of the frame.

It shows both the wrench type screw and thumb screws with springs. I personally would use the regular screws. The little convenience the thumb screws offer would not be worth having them sticking out to me. I already have a similar one the Piaoyu store sells and I love it. This one will not accept a lanyard but I guess I can't have it all.

They carry the little full G-10 model I had such a hard time getting for a mere $28

They also have tiny titanium slingshot with custom widths available but it's pretty expensive:

I have a side slot model of this one but tempted to buy the clamp band attach style (no tie) version . I prefer OTT but this is a nice piece for not a lot of money and has a fork width of 90mm in the no tie clamp version:

If you have not found the site yet I think you may see a few on there you may like.
