Alright, here's those photos. There were lots of different parts made for bore drop Nelsons (aftermarket, maybe different versions from SI?). I bought mine in a nice package deal with three extra bolts, all different. I have no idea which one if any was the original factory part.



On mine, a 1/4" allen key down the front of the bolt will adjust this screw. If you look down the bolt, you will see the hexagon shape to fit the key. (One of my spare bolts looks similar to yours. It is not adjustable.)



Here's an adjustable hammer. If you see threads, there's probably something that turns in them.

Both of these adjustments are used to shorten or lengthen the space that the spring has to compress into when the gun is cocked, controlling the force with which the hammer is propelled onto the powertube.

And here she is assembled in all her glory:


I think Chappy's right, you have the shorter Pointman pump handle.

I think the Blue Book is a bit high.

But they don't come up very often so it's hard to say. It all comes down to a buyer and seller coming to an agreement. Start high, make it obo, see what offers you get.

Honestly, it looks like a parts box build to me. The short pump and long barrel don't match.

Here's a Pointman for reference:

Pump Gun Picture thread

psychosplinter's Pointman is an example of a later Bushmaster. Notice the radius on the rail, behind the forward grip screw, and how body is flush with the end of the rail. Compare that to mine, where (crappy camera phone shots aside), the front of the frame rail is squared off, and the valve body starts right behind the sight rail. Also notice how mine has two extra thumb screws on the body to hold the valve in place, which is an older feature.

It's hard to tell from your pictures, newman, but if you have a legit Pointman then the price goes up a bit as they are more rare. The long barrel doesn't fit the Pointman, but you can find a short replacement pretty easily.
