Played my first REAL game with the carter-beast today.
It's a great stock class marker, points real well.
However I had some issues...
Even after lowering the sear (alot) I will get these ****ing misfires. (As in I pull the trigger it doesn't shoot, I pull the pump handle forward and it shoots.)
This is really really REALLY ANNOYING.(especially when you have someone in your sights)
Also it liked to randomly A/T itself without pulling the trigger.
I also find the super-long-non-adjustable slider trigger pretty stupid...
Now I really love the comp, but so far it doesn't feel "reliable." Sure it's a very beautiful marker, but I want it to perform as well at it looks.
I think I'll tweak around with it so'more maybe call Earon/lauren and get it figured out.
Right now I'm disappointed.

You can adjust the slider trigger, you just need to use a dremel or file to remove material from the trigger "sled" (this is the peg that trips the sear). To make it trip sooner or later. You may even need to get another screw and start over to make it a sharper edge. Generally the person ordering the marker indicates to Earon what "feel" of trigger pull they want; my Box Gun was ordered with a short and sharp trigger pull, which meant the trigger sled was a straight screw on one side, a curved edge on the other (I can "flip" the screw over for a longer and smoother trigger pull).
With regards to the ATing, you might need a larger o-ring on the bolt, if it is too small it may travel far too forward and cause the gun to fire. Again, the o-ring might need to be tailored for the marker, Earon usually sands the front face of the o-ring so it will fit into the breech (a standard Nelson o-ring that has not been sanded down will generally not fit into the breech).
Carters are beautiful guns, but they demand a lot of their owners. They are hand made markers that will have different tolerances in each one made, so they require the end-user to tailor them to their liking.

My thoughts on all the Carters I have owned... too bad.

My Comp (not MC) was great, minus the lack of a readily available barrel kit. Of course, I did have to repair it, being a somewhat unfortunate second owner. At least I got a deal on it.

I've found that if I pull the trigger slowly the sear doesn't release. I need to pull it with a little authority to get it to fire reliably. I think I am going to modify my trigger with a pre and maybe post travel screw, and make a few new screws ground differently and see what happens. I'll keep you posted...

Traded guns for cameras
I must have been really lucky with mine, shot like a dream from day 1.
Or maybe it's because I've never taken mine apart

HI = A Pumper's Paradise
Reading the posts here and my personal experiences. It's like a crap shoot when you get a Carter.
I am still trying to work out the kinks in my Comp.
