Each and every carter is unique...

I own 2 mini buzzards and I was tearing them down to polish the internals and do maintenance today. I started noticing TONS of small intricate differences between the 2. I wanted to see if I could make 2 working guns and this is what I ended up with...

]

Yeah, pretty neat huh? They dont work, at all, in the slightest and I think that is cool.

Here is a list of things I noticed.
-Different bolts
-One has a 1 inch longer pump handle
-one has milled flats on the pump handle while the other is flat.
-One has a 1cm longer pump arm set
-different threads in a lot of places.
-One has an angles bottom line while the other does not

Just goes to show that every carter has its own "one off" features that make each a unicorn in itself

Hope you enjoyed, now its time to re assemble each properly
-Eric

Yes I noticed that when I was making Redux CA adapters. I was looking into branching out into Carter CA adapters but it is difficult to do when he has no set standard he makes them to. I can still make one but I needed the frame to do it.

They kinda are standardized, it really depends on the "era" they were made though which can be tough to pin down.

Definitely noticed this having recently picked up a second Buzzard, after discovering my not-so-fondness of the 1.5 banana trigger on my 1st one... I thought I might be able to offer my 1st one up for sale w/ some "options" but really not many of the parts were interchangeable between the two. I noticed that even the two collars had different outside/thickness dimensions... definitely agree w/ you bro; it's kind of cool that he makes each one an individual piece of artwork
