1. Earon Carter & the Kamikaze Shooters hooked up w/ each other. I believe the very first 3 Comp Guns went to the 2 co-captains (Dave Loo and Tora) and another one of their main Turtle Squad members. We're talking mid 80's here. Before that Earon was mainly known for his work on Sheridan based guns.

2. One of the Shooters took the rail off of his Gold Cup and had Earon mount it on a modified Nelspot. Dave Loo liked the looks and had that same teammate modify his Comp Gun to fit Pachmayer grips for a .45 and also modified his pump handle into a more squarish/rectangular look (like the slide of a .45) and also added Millet sights to his Comp. This was long before Line Si came out with their .45 grips for the Bushmasters. In fact one of the Shooters was still making wood grips for Navarone's Nelspot lowers back then.

3. Dave took the concept of his heavily modified Comp Gun and came up with the idea for the DD68. Obviously Earon had a HUGE influence in the making of this gun as him and Dave were ultra tight. Personal friends off of the field, etc.

4. Soon Dave made more improvements and variations came out including the "Slam Changer" 12 gram changer, "Shorty Duck", "Counter Weight" foregrip, etc.

5. Dave burnt out from running his own field (Shiloh), making the Ducks, etc. basically quit paintball for awhile. Overall I'd generally say 2 years.

6. A Duck-Mag was also built. The first A-M that I&I Sports got was given to a Kamikaze Shooter. (This was even before A-M's were being sold as back then I&I was HUGE and products were often given to I&I for testing to see if they would carry them.) He took a slide for a Duck & also a Duck lower and modified them to fit onto an A-M. He also modified the bottle adaptor to fit vertically in front of the trigger guard. As far as I can tell, this was the first vertical bottled A-M. So the A-M had the look of a .45 lower, with the Duck slide as a shroud over the A-M barral including the front Millet post.

7. SC Village started up a stockgun tourney and Dave built the first 3 "Stock Ducks" from parts he and another Kamikaze Shooter teammate had. A 4th one was soon made for another Shooter. This was 92 or 93.

8. Glen from Check It Products liked the Ducks. Attened the same HS as Dave's son, etc. and got an itch to start up his own company. One of the Shooters had built what would be considered the original "Box Gun" and Glen took that one off original and used it as a template for learning the manufactoring business. Dealing w/ machine shops, working with CAD programs, sourcing and pricing parts, etc. and he came out w/ his own version.

9. Ken K. (Navarone) was working w/ Earon when Earon was still in his Rosecrans shop. Mike R. (GBD) was another employee that the time. Ken took what was left of Dave's parts and started making more Ducks on a piece-by-piece basis. From then on, Carter Machine has put out more Ducks.

10. At the time stock & pump class games weren't hugely popular even here in SoCal so CIP discontinued offering their Box/Super Stocker pump guns. I think it was around 01-02 that they got rid of their inventory of parts.

11. Stock & pump games made a comeback. Redux, Box Gun clones, etc. spring up to support those peeps that want a Duck or Box Gun but otherwise wouldn't have the means to purchase one.

I hope that clarifies some of the history of the DD68. If anything at least it might shed some light upon the different versions and where they fit into the whole category/family of Ducks and Duck clones.

If you want a few ways to distinguish Earons Ducks from the others would be:

1) Only Earon Made the Back Bottle versions
2) For the In Grip changer- all his are set at 15* angles
3) The shotgun slots are Earon
4) All the Slide Counter Weights are 5/8" (Loo ducks were various sizes)
also only Loo Ducks had Vert lines on the counter weight

I was trying to get info on the guns pictured but I didn't write it down till later LOL.
Earon only made 2 of the Duck tale ones like IronChefs
The Blue duck was made for a guy in Nova Scotia
Mine (beach blitz background) was made for a pilot in Canada

The Gold one the shotgun slots don't appear to be his style as they appear longer than any he's done. But the feed tube is his design

The copper one is at Earons right now - you probably will not recognize it the next time you see it

Then we got sidetracked but he did enjoy seeing the pics
more...

Yeah, there seems to be a lot of un-wanted "cleaning" going on.

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...

I agree with you cj. I had 2500 saved for a duck but my mom would not let me buy it. What she does not realize is now I have like 5 guns that equate to more cost than a duck lol.

I think it is hard for people to spend 2500 at once on a paintball gun vs 500 5 times on different guns.

This. Some people have a hard time justifying having one guns when they could have multiple.

Find what you want and save to make it happen. If it turns out that it was NOT what you wanted, sell it and find the new thing that you want .

I hardly ever spend big money out of the bank account for things that I want. I find things that I want less, and get rid of them to fund the big thing that I want.

I funded my s6.5 from all the older stuff that I found I just wasn't using any more. As an added bonus I get rid of 4 projects I was never going to complete lol.
