Stats:

1/2in thick
3 1/4in wide
1in fork tips
1 1/4 gap
5in tall

I wanted to try my hand at a freehand board cut with a small piece of olive I have had sitting around for about a year. The goal was a small/thin shooter for the back pocket that could still accept a full size band setup, and a secondary emphasis on comfort and ambidextrous use. The shoulders and butt are thinned for comfort and easy pocketing.

Sanded to 1200 grit (because Brucered made me feel like a peasant with my usual 400 grit) and then soaked in Danish oil overnight. Will wax if the buyer requests! It's pictured with what's left of the parent board..

Asking 35 including shipping. Unbanded.

Thanks for your time.fa9e2abc5155aabcedbdd99fc645b69c.jpg45708cf852e09a4dbfbe71996a03eb86.jpg

That's a beauty! Not quite my thing, but somebody is going to get a unique and classy shooter.

****. This is lovely. And the perfect size. If my sling budget wasn't in the negatives I wouldn't even think about it.

Someone who likes small frames like me is sure to swoop in on this.

Thanks for the compliments, gentlemen. Fear not, Inconvenience! If this one sells before you can grab it I'll whip you up a clone of it in whatever wood you want. Thanks for stopping by.
