Re: wood handle classic and ergonomic thumb rest

I think I saw some pictures in another thread. Care to post some here?

I am jealous... I would love to have access to CNC equipment!

Re: wood handle classic and ergonomic thumb rest

I have modified the 2 original handle and remove/add according to our purpose ,idea came as I notice the only difficult part in gun building to shape the handle for someone without skill in wood carving and it take long time that why many purchase the AR frame .

Re: wood handle classic and ergonomic thumb rest

These look awesome! Have you considered selling them? Probably a tricky market for spearguns, but there are companies out there who made handles (albeit sport guns) their sole business…

Create your own web-site and then post links to it on forums such as these. Right now people have to search on your posts here and elsewhere to find out what you are doing.
