Some help with the carter site

hey i was on the carter site and was looking to buy a buzzard. first of all i was wondering the difference between the buzzard and the mini buzzard other than the size? and also i was sure the difference between the vaa to rat attack and the bba to rat attack. i just dont know what that is.

VAA= Vertical air adapter

BBA= Back bottle adapter

Rat attack= 12gram changer (can be used with either VAA or BBA)

Difference between the two was no collar on the mini and milling I think... and a shorter barrel on the mini... I may be missing a few things though.

The "mini buzzard" has no collar. basically the feedtube bolts on. Similar to a phantom.(This also means no weird carter autrotrigger?)

I believe(don't quote me on this) the "vaa" or the "bba" are the different styles of 12gram changers.

EDIT: i was partly wrong. Thank you ogg

BBA option has no room for a gauge. VAA does. A gauge is not a necessity. Milling is just for aesthetics.... I like milling.

Yup, skip the gauge. Looks cleaner and you don't need it.

Personally, I'd rather spend money on fancy anno than milling.

I think it depends. A cool anno is definitely a plus as long as you have your "slightly more than basic" milling covered. I hate seeing nice Buzzards that have that clunky pump handle with no slots or flats. At least go for those, if you can afford it.

I don't know, can you tell that the BBA doesn't have the fancy milling? Or that the feedtube does? If I was doing solid or fade anno, I'd definitely get milling. With splash it always seems like the milling gets hidden.

That is true. It really jumps out on my single colour Box Gun. I think my favourite milling Earon does (did, more correctly ) is what he used to do on the bucket changers. You could see most of the 12 gram through the tear drop holes. Only "negative" thing I can say about new Carters is that he changed the way the bucket changer screws into the adapter. They used to be much nicer and impossible to mis-thread.

EDIT: I think slotting the rail is my favourite current thing he mills, it really sets it off.
