New to buzzards and have a few questions

I just picked up a buzzard and after opening it, I found four things:

1) The gun was a bit more used (more like carelessly maintained) than advertised
2) The o-rings on the bolt and TPC were worn
3) The gun was A-Ting
4) The TPC was slightly misformed on the backside

I took the gun apart, cleaned it, put it back together and found it was ATing. I quickly jumped into this section, threw an o-ring on the barrel and flipped the hammer around. This seemed to do the trick, at least for now.

The TPC looks very slightly pinched. Should I be worried about this?

Also, there is the stiff (red) phantom hammer spring in there. I assume this is not a problem and I will just have to back out the TPC almost all the way to achieve the desired velocity. I will be picking up a phantom spring kit, if the phantom springs do indeed work.

What size buna o-ring goes on the TPC? Additionally, what size bolt o-ring have you found helpful to prevent ATing?

It came with a beveled stainless barrel with no inserts. Will carter inserts work with this barrel?

Thanks for the help gentlemen.

I responded to your PM already, but I figured what the hell, I'll post my $0.02 worth here for all as well My answers are in RED

TPC oring: 010
Bolt orings: 014, 015, 2x13mm, 2x14mm 111 and/or 112 depending on bolt placement requirements for anti-Autotrigger
Stainless barrel w/o inserts? You'd have to have Carter bore the barrel for his inserts to use them in it

Hope that helps, and again I'll get back w/ you ASAP regarding the other requests

EDIT: I added the two metric sizes that would also help against AT-ing... they're slightly thicker than the 014 and 015... and I double checked the 1xx sizes
