Carter Refurbishment

A while back I contacted Carter Machine (first via the website/Lauren and then via Demonio) for some refurbishment work on a couple of older Carter markers I acquired, and thought you guys might enjoy seeing the results.

First up is a Buzzard. There was some discussion on this very forum that this marker might have been a Termite or a transitional gun, but EC says it's a Buzzard and that's good enough for me.

How I got it:


How it looks now:


Some general clean and polishing, new grips (bone-colored Corian w/RH thumbrest), new "period" sight rail and frame rail, and a new SC feed.

Next up is a Tri-Car that I got from Bacci a while back. I'll let the before and after pictures do the talking.

How I got it:


How it looks now:


New internals, new "period" sight rail and grips, complete cosmetic scrub, take out some dings in the barrel and feedneck and "retro-modern" black/blue anodizing. I dare say this went from scrap to what may well be the nicest Tri-Car on the planet.

Big thanks to Earon for taking on the projects and Demonio for facilitating!

I was wondering whose gun that was. I couldn't resist the urge to hold whenever I went down to Earon's. Congrats on a sexy gun!

No wonder it's all sticky. Note to self: frame worrp for crime using marker as DNA evidence.

Wow those both turned out great. Does the Buzzard have an aluminum body or Stainless?

THE-SHOOTIST Anyone chubbin' like me for this?
mailmanmike Since Monday! That's more than 4 hours though, so according to those cialis ads I should see my doctor.
tlane77 I think for a non-chemical chubby it's 6 hours before its time to see a doctor. So you should be good for another couple hours.
splattttttt I wasn't goin to google "chubbin" because I assumed it had to do with fat. The lard type, not the fun stuff. But what ever feelings Jeff's experiencing, then they must be of the fun like stuff...
tlane77 He's got a woody for your woods.
