Carter Duck 1st impressions.

Hello every one, I just got my carter duck from my new best friend lucky duck and I wanted to share my 1st impressions. Please note that my duck is different from the norm because it has an extended titanium barrel with extra porting, breach window, ss valve, full barrel kit and some other weird things.

Positives:
-Looks awesome, sickest looking gun I have ever owned
-well machined, everything looks nicely crafted here.
-Twist in grip air(my favorite air option)
-Nice pump stroke, smooth but heavy.
-great trigger pull, really clean break.
-Super good ergonomics, really melts into your hands.
-Barrel kit
-Refuses to pinch paint, whether you pump slow, fast, to the side, or not. It -WONT PINCH. You can cock this marker like any phantom and not worry about pinches. There will be video to demonstrate this...I even autotriggered 2-3 shots and still no pinches.

50/50:
-SUPER heavy, more so than the redux. I think this is because of the super thick beefy slide, and ss valve body.
-loud(all carters are)

Negative:
-a lot of slide wobble
-weak return spring, too weak to really be useful.

I just shot the gun in my garage and got 45 shots out of 12g. no idea what velocity. Probobly low. I heard I can expect about 25 at 280. I will be field testing on 4/7 and will post a full review then.

So far I am very impressed...Videos to come.

Great to hear you are happy with her! No mini-buzzard today, but looks like Monday. The Garg will get the full workout tomorrow.

Have fun with the new toy!

No. I was thinking about the slide wobble while I was out today, and I realize I prefer it that way. It makes the pump stroke much better and the body does not bind on the sub like my dsp used to. I love this gun, I feel so good holding it.

On a side note, still going to gateway tomorrow stitch?

You didn't like the slide wobble on the redux though did you? Is the the same amount?
