I love that frame. A copper/black BBA Buzzard with that frame sold here over the past summer, it was a beauty.

EDIT: Found it.

That Buzzard lives with the Tonsixers, so it stayed in Canada.


I got this from Lauren, this was in 2007.

Nice to hear from you! We’ve been offering single slide triggers on new markers for an additional $75, or if you want to add one to an old marker it’s $125 plus anodizing & tax & shipping (because Earon won’t take a used marker back in exchange)...you would need to ship the marker to us because that $125 includes changing out the sear as well. Lead time probably around six weeks

That is very interesting... it almost makes it worth picking up Buzzards with those horrid 1.5 triggers just to have them swapped. I am sure you can sell the old frame and get some return on it.

EDIT: I should bug them about that Buzzard if they ever decide to sell.

That's one of the newer ones.

First there came the modified Comp Gun frames that Earon had his minions grind down the frame to give it straighter lines, especially around the trigger guard. They still had the Skorr triggers and if you were lucky enough, you got an Obatake trigger shoe which was thinner in profile then the ones you normally see.

The Carter Machine sliding triger frames that were made after Dave's passing have the larger swell in the "mainspring housing" area. Not sure who did their checking, Derrick Obatake taught me to checker and then we later passed some files along to Dave and also Ken Kidd (Nav.) who was working for Earon at the time. Aluminum is slightly irritating to file on.

I emailed Lauren about getting a slider frame with matching ano for my buzzard and this is her response:


Quote:
If we simply mailed you the parts, the cost would be $125 for a raw or clear or black slide frame with trigger, plus $20 for titanium anodizing, plus $15 for the sear, plus shipping (TBD), and if youíre in California then also add 7.75% sales tax.

If youíd like to send the marker to us instead, you would add an additional $50 assembly charge. It would take a few months because after receiving your marker we would than send one piece of it to the anodizer with the new slide frame for color matching, and that alone can take as much as 4-5 weeks. Please be aware that itís not always possible to get an EXACT match, but our anodizer can usually get very close.

If youíll email me your shipping address Iíll send you an exact quote.
Hope this helps.

Why do they charge Californians a sales tax? Aren't they in Hawaii?

No, Chula Vista. Some people I have talked to have actually picked their orders up from Earon himself.
