Finally here, replacement buzzard parts!
After 7 months of correspondence with Lauren Carter firstname.lastname@example.org , I got a set of replacement parts for my '04 buzzard. From the time of actually ordering to receiving the parts took 6 weeks, but due to various circumstances the order didn't go out until first week of June 2006.
Just a breakdown of costs of what I purchased.
$75.00 Bolt & Hammer Assembly
$37.50 Power Tube Assembly
$10.00 Pump Arm Screws (newer-style, one pair)
$10.00 5 sets of (4) O-Rings
$ 5.00 1 set of (6) screws
$10.66 7.75% CA sales tax
$ 8.00 Shipping & Handling
$ 156.16 Total
Be patient when ordering parts, it may take a while. Would you order a non-OEM part for your Ferrari?
but my 2 year old Ferrari doesn't need replacement parts :)
Just playing it safe, since Carter is retiring, parts are gonna be hard to come by unless you're willing to buy another buzzard just for the parts. Think as a investment, 75 bucks for a bolt and hammer today, couple years who knows?
But a hammer, nothing more than rust, which can be easily fixed.
$10.00 5 sets of (4) O-Rings !!!!!! talk about mark up margin seriously do some complaining about this as you can buy 20 #10 o-rings at the mega home improvement stores for less than $2.
I like Carters and all but I am sorry the prices are just a bit of line.
To his defense, most of the hardware store o-rings wont stand up to paintball use, try putting one on a tank, they explode or shatter.
Well, like anything else it's an investment. I'm sure I could've gone to home depot for the screws and o-rings, but had to get it from the source. Perhaps one day, I'll put up the hardware up FS on the forum when I retire from paintball (not likely soon).
Tank orings, espically when used with CO2, should be at least 90 durometer Buna-N and you're not likely to find those at the hardware store. Polyurethane orings are best in that application as it's a much stronger material.
