    Do you know if there is a template of this anywhere to download ? I’m really liking the look and keen to build one so I’d be really grateful if anyone could point me in the right direction.
    Cheers

    There isnt bud, not the exact one anyxway, perry only made/makes limited numbers of the SWOPFs if i remember rightly. Slim Waisted OPFS so use template for the OPFS and slim that waist down to fit your hand

    The finished item looks great, I was fortunate to see some of the build process and you have done a great job. I'm happy to be of some help in education, I think there was a mix up, as rich said that's not one I owned but I did own a black widow version that was red and black, I don't have any photos of it anymore. I wish I still had I'd as I'm finding it hard to get hold of another pwp frame since he is no longer making them and they don't stay on sale for long, you definitely beat me to it when cruiser was selling it that's probably where the confusion came from?

    Have fun with it and once again, looks great.

    Thanks guys, I appreciate all the great comments. It is a result of this great community and the sharing of information that makes things like this possible and lots of fun. I appreciate everyone's input.

    Unless Perry @Pawpawsailor has an objection, one day next week I will make a nice SWOPFS template for the resource tab. If you are anxious for one, just take the OPFS template and make a slim handle for it. The forks are exactly the OPFS shape.

    I have not built a shooter in almost a year and a half. I retired and moved and with extended health issues, just have not been up to it. I have a special SWOPFS in the works for my buddy AZStinger but nothing else in the plans. I have tried to persuade one of my sons to pick up the effort without avail.

    Perry, thank you for the feedback and hope you are doing better with the health issues. I know too well the challenges that life puts in front of us. Also, I have first hand experience in trying to get my son interested in my hobbies to no avail.

    I will be sure to give credit to you and Dgui in the SWOPFS template when I create and upload it. Thank you for your contributions to this hobby and the advancement of awesome craftsmanship innovations.
