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 don't always lead the way, but when I do, I Ranger the f*ck up!

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
