Ugh, That is a tough call. I would opt for just repairing the mechanical issues (tube) and staying with the original anno.

Why: History and intended use. Did you buy this duck as a Loo duck? In other words, did the history of this marker attract you to it, vs others for sale? If so, it might be advisable to keep it as true as possible. And I agree with idkfa, if you are going to love the hell out of it, why reanno now?

Another thought: I have not used the shop that you are intending to send it to for reanno, but I would also be worried about loosing the 'Kamikaze Shooter DD-68' label during the anno stripping process. Too many times anno jobs have sent markers out of tolerance, not just removed shallow engraving.

Ahh the voice of reason...yes I bought it to have a Loo Duck, and not another redux which are great shooters. And with that post I've made up mind...

Don and Mitch do phenomenal work by the way though

I would say jb weld it back on .Thats the reason for all the roughed up areas .To put screws may cause more problems .Dont you use epoxy .With Jb Weld I have never had a feed tube come off.

Thanks for the tip Luck Duck, will I have to clean the original stuff off first?

This. I had the same problem on my Loo. It was originally a direct feed from what I can gather, and once it was Carterized, Earon glued the feed tube. Held out for the longest time, but it took a wee drop at a game in Maryland, and off popped the tube. Threw a little JB weld on there, and it's solid as a rock now.

My Loo has been repaired twice now. First was a trip out to CCI, where I had Mike repair the front compensator screws, and the stripped out slide latch screw. Then the feed tube which I did myself. But it's been good ever since.

Gorgeous Loo man. Part of me still wants to let mine go to fund the car purchase, but I don't think I can part with it. Too much history, and the personal value is WAY more than what I can get cash wise. Not to mention how long it took to find and pay for it.

Also, you may want to look into Chopper Duke's adjustable detent mod. This is a brilliant idea, and I'd use the hell out of it on mine, but my lower compensator thing doesn't have enough room to allow the screw and nut in there. Mine has a regular screw rounded off at the tip to act as a detent. Same concept, but Duke took it and made it better!

DD68 Adjustable Detent Mod

Hehe, normally I don't like splash, but I saw this:





So yeah....I am going to keep it original, going to try the mod, thanks DM

Might do my Magnum R7 like the Splash R7...unless Don can do a Rust Oil Slick on it
