Credit where it is due - Jason Kondo of Combat Crew did the modification - mine is #2 the prototype belongs to my friend and teammate back in the Just for Kicks and Giggles days - Raymond Uyehara. Ray's was a tad bit rougher, mine had the refinements, both were fully functional and just plain rock =)

I had the honor to meet and play with John Kumishiro while I lived in Hawaii.

Nice idea lech, I have to agree with DSA here, and though I am newer to pump/stock class guns too, time is needed to fully grasp what each gun is all about. Awesome thread though, keep adding information to the guns you still own as your knowledge of them grows and evolves.

Words of wisdom here. DSA has reached enlightenment...

You may have saved a lot of us some money here LeChooch. To me this is a "The grass isn't always greener on the other side" thread.

Nice reviews!

I'm just glad I'm at that point where I know what I want and how I play.

It takes a lot of experience (and money) to figure out what works for YOU and what doesn't. The most important thing in finding a stock class gun is to find a marker that you don't have to think about when you are playing with it. It just becomes a perfectly blended extension of your body and hits whatever you will it to hit.

Rodney built the Gargoyle to be a once in a lifetime marker so Rodney made it with very tight tolerances because after all tuning and break in are half the fun.

In my opinion today's generation is in too much of a hurry to hit the sweet spot yesterday. I suspect you will find yourself in 10 yrs wishing you had kept all the ones you have owned just to discover the sweet spot of each marker. Ahh but youth is wonderful amigo so enjoy it.

The box gun is THE smoothest pumping gun out of the box I have ever had the pleasure of owning. If I may suggest you find a good Old broken in CIP and you will freak on the buttery smoothness. Like many an MCB member has learned wanting is always much better than having, hence the term gun whore!

Again love the thread, looking forward to your next addition.
...I am impressed at the age of 15, lechooch is playing stock class with Carter Comps vs. the laser engraved, electro flavor of the month.

I briefly had a box gun and the pump would bind on the top piece. I pmed several members here before I purchased it and no one mentioned this was a problem. And one of the members I PM, later sold his box gun and said, "the pump binds/rubs". There are alot of reviews that only tell the good. Granted this is Lechooch's opinion, I think his reviews adds to our community.

I have never shot a redux, but multiple members have had problems with pinching balls...including CJ...maybe your redux is magical or you have figured it out...It seems that very few members hold onto their Redux very long.

Well the thing with Carter boxguns is that they are made one at a time. Some bind on the top rail some don't. It's one of the quirks with Carter's and custom built guns for that matter.

Redux/Ducks are an acquired taste and are not for everyone.

Perfect choice of words. I have had all manner of pump gunz and the Redux fits me perfectly. But then again I am a bit of a stalker then just like that I get lucky. Both of the box guns I have tried were just awesome cept the CIP had old school big bore complex. I loved my Garg but lack of sights didn't fit my style. If Rodney comes out with a sight system I'll most assuredly get another.

The thing about slide guns is well they have a slide which changes things a bit. Not everyone can used to it. They are truely an aquired taste. As for chooche being 15, hell I'm 45 and have never me the Big Kahuna himself much less have a photo op eith him so chooche is light years ahead of most his age including some 45 yr olds

Honestly the problem is most people who want to play with one if these custom beasts must realize one basic fact. They are breech drop which traditionally binds from time to time, after all that is why bore drop was invented.

I can't speak for CJ, but I suspect $ 1350.00 is a bit much for most members to have tied up in a bore drop Nelson and life happens with all it's expences. Who knows all I know is mine works fantastically well but then again I have been around for an awfully long time and know what I want out of a gun. Someday I'll get a Carter duck but then I'll rationalize my self out of it cuz $2500.00 is too much for my blood.


I have tried to go high speed electro like a TM7 or Timmy but to tell you the truth my game suffers. I just suck with rope a dope shooters alway have.

Chooche I would love to see you get the Retro 7 next after the CCM Sniper it will be my next purchase.

You know, I've only been playing since early of 99. Didn't even know what a pump gun was till my first scenario at EMR in 03.
Was a beautiful urban vsc Phantom. I immediately became intrigued by its diminutive size and haven't looked back since lol.
So that was 9 years ago.
Since then, many little beauties have come and gone. It will take me a lot longer before I will call one a wife.
For now they're just, well you know


I was looking for a new thread subscription and I found it.
Great idea Eric. Thanks!

THE-SHOOTIST Anyone chubbin' like me for this?
mailmanmike Since Monday! That's more than 4 hours though, so according to those cialis ads I should see my doctor.
tlane77 I think for a non-chemical chubby it's 6 hours before its time to see a doctor. So you should be good for another couple hours.
splattttttt I wasn't goin to google "chubbin" because I assumed it had to do with fat. The lard type, not the fun stuff. But what ever feelings Jeff's experiencing, then they must be of the fun like stuff...
