Mini Comp questions!

Hello folks! I'd like to preface this by saying that I've never extensively played pump before. I know a little bit about how pumps work and what not, but not the history or anything behind them. The only pump I've ever owned was a Phantom and that was only for a short while.

I've been browsing BST looking for another Phantom, but I have the opportunity to own a Carter Machine marker. Now the add says it's a Mini Comp, and I think it's a Mini Comp, but there's one thing that makes me question myself. The VAA. I've read that Mini Comps were ONLY BBA. The pump arm attaches to the bolt from the bottom, which why I knew it wasn't a Mini Buzzard. Can you guys verify that it's a Comp, not a Buzzard or something else?

Also, is there anything else I need to know about Carter Machine markers? Any common problems, quirky things I should know? Also, what's the going rate on a Mini Comp? I've looked around and $500 seems to be the usual. Is that correct?

More questions to follow. Thanks

Correct mini comps are Bba only. The older comps could be vert air.

Am I reading it wrong? The add says it's a pre-Dye comp in which it is. See how the mini comp doesn't have the collar for the feed. On the comp it screws directly into the body. Hope this helps.

Barrels are interchangeable. The horizontal feed screws into the collar and the collar has two set screws on the bottom that make contact with the bottom rail.

The orange one is pre dye and the gold one is a new mini comp. the collar is what the feed tube is mounted to.

Edit my phone took a bit to post lol
