    Junk or not?
    "Inexpensive"* (to most) no name from Amazon.
    Frame and forks are a full 7/16 inch/11mm thick, and have no flex, so I'm not worried about it breaking when at my (pathetic) full draw.
    The bands look to be 1mm, when held against my vintage style wood ruler. (I don't have anything more accurate.)
    (*"Inexpensive" and "expensive" is income dependent, of course. For me, it was "relatively expensive", at around $18, (plus tax and free shipping) or just under 50% of my monthly income, after paying rent and room n' board.

      I have something pretty similar, great shooter and should last forever. Took the sights off though, just didn’t work for me.

      If you like it and it gives you a smile , get it . Sights ? I have a similar one that is a little larger and it shoots good but like LP said sights , no ! I just took them off and put them in a drawer.

      When we all start we seem to be enamored of big forks and shiny things. Cheap enough and pretty cool. Why not?

      Looks like a great shooter.
      The only Chinese shooters I have regretted buying are ones that turned out to be zinc instead the steel I thought I'd be getting.

      I'm pretty sure it shoots where it's pointed ... whether that is where I think it's pointed may be another matter ....
      I haven't shot it but three or four times so far. I'm not sure if the sights will stay on and be used, or stay on (so they don't get lost), and ignored yet.
