Making a Buzzard SC feed stay put?

Anyone have ideas as to how one could go about making a Buzzard SC feed stay in place instead of wandering to the left or right? I'm thinking of running an endmill down the underside since it seems to be too shallow near the collar.

[edit] It seems that when the feed was milled, the cut was made at a slight angle. The rear of the feed is cut 1/100" deeper. Lucky me I get to play at the TonSixer shop again soon...

I thought I read somewhere about using a set screw to hold it in place... Like the RTR style feed I think.

I knew must Buzzard feed tubes looked odd. I just always thought it was my eyes playing tricks on me.

...sorry to hijack your thread....

as long as you tighten down the feed screw on the collar tight enough it shouldn't move around

The buzzard has ultra cheesey feed mount design.My buddy had one and it would not stay straight.He wanted to mount a red dot to it and it was worthless because the feed moved so much.You could tighten the collar as far as it would go and it would not stop it.The bottom of the feed needed to be rounded out deeper with round end mill.I was going to machine it for him at school, and he Upgraded and sold it.

I am that buddy,and that collar thing sucked.I striped the screw that held the feed tube,fixed it and had a shop machine the curve on the bottom of the feed tube all the way down the lengh of it,that helped some.Then I put a small screw through the inside bottom of the feed tube and sold it.Quite a learning expirence not mentioning the fact that you pay 500.00 for a marker with a feed tube that moves ect...ect.....ect......Was a damn good looking marker......on my wall though.

I ended up milling out the bottom of the feed with a round endmill and making a new pass on the horizontal part where it attaches to the collar. Now it sits very securely without the need for a set screw.

Ogg is right, Carters aren't for everyone. I've had good luck with mine, though and I don't mind doing a little work on them to get them perfect for me. I wanted a really nice ergonomic single tube snapshooter gun, and my latest Carter totally fits that bill. I only had to do a couple things with it. One was fixing the tube wobble, the other was to flatten the bottom of the frame out for a 22ci tank.

I love the idea that they are hand made and aren't flawless. They are little works of art. Nothing I've shot has come close to the feel and smoothness of my pre-DYE Buzzard.

The only problem I've ever had with Carters was with the DYE Hinge. I hate those frames with a passion, and the new sliders and hinges have brought the frames back to how they should be. I love my nelspot style trigger. It's just ridiculously nice.

I agree. One of the main reasons I didn't like my Buzzard was because of the DYE hinge frame, that and the feedtube wobble
