I have other hobbies in addition to my addiction to pens and one is shooting targets with a pellet rifle. I bought the slightly used FX Crown .22 from a guy in Southern California and he gave me all of his hobby wood. One chunk was Amboyna burl as can be seen after cutting it to blanks.

Here is a Cabellero using the “free” wood along with a green box elder burl Atrax using wood bought from CSUSA. As luck would have it the amboyna pen body cracked, was disassembled, refinished with CA and after careful checking was judged as a keeper.

PS - the gun easily hits single dots made by a small sharpie from 20 yards. I have seen videos of skilled folks use this gun to hit exploding golf balls at 175 yards.

Nice gun! Looks to be for a leftie. How's the trigger? Is it user adjustable? Oh, nice pens too!
Ambidextrous for everyone. The trigger is highly adjustable, two stage model with a very crisp release. Light but consistent.
Thanks
