I always liked comps better than buzzards. They were considered the higher end model when they were produced..the under barrel cocking was considered superior and I think they look alot cleaner.

Buzzards are gunna be easy to take the pump handle off and maybe to dissassemble the rest of the gun..but the only carter id really want is a comp, either way.

Id rather have a comp than a super stocker too. I just dont like the solder jobs on pps brass guns.

Maybe a Palmerized piranha LB would be best <for me> with porting and a .45 frame.

Lots to choose from especially in that price range.

The early model Buzzards (up until the late 80's) were considered the "high end" gun. Usually you'd seem them tricked out with a large capacity CA tank, custom milled stock, larger pump, longer barrels, etc.. While us Comp owners were considered the 12g guys w/ stick feeds, etc. Bascially the NSG tourney type guys.

For maybe over 5 years I can't recall Earon making Buzzards. But when teams like the Grizwalds started having some success w/ Earon's stock guns, the Buzzard design got a new lease on life.

Right now I own a direct feed Comp and a stock class Buzzard. Just from a "feel" perspective my old Comp feels more solid even if it's lighter. But I'd attribute it to the lesser number of components it's comprised of (remember it the old non-removable barrel style). But the action of the Buzzard is smoother. The undercocker/single arm design of the Comp has a little bit more lateral twisting in the pump then the Buzzard does with the dual arms and collar design.

I'm still getting used to the site rail being elevated on the rock-n-cock tube on top of the Buzzard. So right now I'd rather play with my Comp Gun. But being able to match barrel kits to the type of paint (since FPO is becoming more common) I'm using that day, makes the Buzzard more attractive. Luckily the modern Comp guns don't suffer from this problem.

I guess what I really meant was "in their hay day"

But I consider whatever shiba kun says about carters to have more value than what I say...his post is good.

Chewy has a 45 framed Super Stocker. I'm sure he'd love to tell you about it. Freedom also has (had) a few I think.
