      And two opfs one just to die for and looks like one that might not be fork but will be good and suitable for shooting .thick enough to split in half and make 4 0PFs so might make two opfs from good Y and design with the other half of the peace

      The gapper is a chicozapote fork (Manilkara sapota) and the design is an attempt to copy (with the owner's permission) a design by the Master Resorteronte Chepo (José Muciño).
      The piece of wood is not bocote, it is Camatillo (Mexican king wood), a species of the Dalbergia genus.

      Just shot three
      The little conus hides in your hand and is one of the most comfortable little shooters
      Making bands tonight for it .
      The delta wing is very nice
      And the “ Mexican King wood “
      What a very neat design really hold well in the hand almost as comfortable as the little conus put orange bands on it Very very nice in the hand very very nice ,all four are a dream slingshot thank you very much beautiful work

      Yes !
      Small conus is better than a jab an eye with a sharp stick nice shooter
      Bigger conus is like the purple Heart kind of like a tank no recoil really nice
      He does nice work around the tips when you pull the band back everything mold perfectly it doesn’t it’s just not some flat edge
      In i’ve got a lot of damn slingshots to shoot mode !!! :)
      Got all 4 with bands that fit to its task
      And already got 400 down range
      If I was a drinking man I’d get drunk tonight I’m so damn happy

      Lol ok so the gapper very accurate little shooter “ I got this now” is “ chicozapote”
      I like it a lot put cold weather pink bands
      Marbles and my 00 odd buck and 9.5 hitting at will at 22 yards with authority nice little holding slingshot
      CC91904C-E037-40E2-9CF2-170DB77D23D6.jpeg
      Now the slab of wood “not bocote but camatillo “ Mexican kingwood”
      Has just about the same characteristics as bocote but Mixed with Purple Heart
      Just as heavy as purple Heart even sands exactly like Purple Heart which is very hard to do real slow ! Butt that’s good now I have that type of wood opfs in my Collection only 842 more species Lol also shaped a short pocket predator gapper and a purple Heart 0PFS @Fidencio León Burgos ? 4 u
      Is this basically Purple Heart sure looks like it when it sanded

      I really like that you enjoy your shooters.
      The camatillo is basically a cocobolo with purple heart colors.
      The piece of wood that I send you is of the Dalbergia congestiflora species
