I almost don't want to post this right after Island Made posted that absolutely amazing bronze creation. From a technical perspective, that is one incredible piece of craftsmanship. Words seriously fail me, I'm so impressed.
So here's my meager contribution. I've been exploring smaller gapper slingshots. I like the pickle fork concept, but I'm still new at this, so I'm sticking with a gap for now.
What I did for this one was shrink down a mule to 80%. It's a proven design, and feels good in the hand, so I gave it a go.
Fork tips come in around 15mm, width is just about 70mm, gap is 40mm, length is just under 120mm.
Banded it with .6 precise 20-10. Active is around 200mm.
shooter side is black and blue layered g10. then there's a red vulcanized spacer, some grey spectraply (first time I've used this and I miss dymondwood terribly)and then black paper micarta on the back. Pins are carbon fiber.
I upped my paper micarta game on this one, and got a nice and shiny presentation. Shoots very well, but cramps my hand from being so small. It's pocketability and incredibly light weight more than make up for the discomfort.
