On another note who the heck got the JT marker?
The pins in the linkage in the early ones were what broke.
A lot had to do with abuse from tourney play and slamming them shut to get your gun back up.I did see the linkage break in one Doug Grey had.

Number 6 valve tube were also bad about breaking under hard useage that is why we used #4 for play.Don't remember who came out with turbo valve and delrion cup seal but I went to those first chance that I got.

Would it be safe to say this could have been corrected by replacing roll pins with ss pins?

IMHO the lever was the greatest design of its kind and this still rings true even today. Sure six packs and turrets rock but the simplicity of the SI lever was just plain cool.

The dumbest thing I ever did was sell my first lever changer soon after buying my first nice paintball gun in 1989. After my Bushmaster arrived, I thought "this thing needs a stock." So I bought a Micro CA and a donkey (hee haw). I have to admit that at the time I thought it was a major improvement for play, regardless of the aesthetics. However, over time I regretted it.

Now that I have listed the things that could go wrong on a bushmaster here's the upside.
Smaller bore size, would not shoot as tight of a group as my termite which had a larger bore, but if you slimed your barrel you could keep on firing with some degree of luck.With larger bore carter's or termites slimed bore shot like snipe fly.
Quick field strip screws
Even though screws tended to backout while playing it made it a whole lot easier to work on gun in a hurry without tools.
Removeable barrel
This was a first made for quick cleaning and in a bind could get a hot gun past a chrono.Not that I recomend playing with a hot gun but in a tourney points were take from your score for a hot gun and with co2 you had a chance of fps climbing with the temp.
Ross backed his product.
If you broke someting Ross gave you a new one.
Ross was fun to hang out with.
Enough said you had to know Him back then.

That is the worst thing you can do, if the pins are not roll pins walk away! Any other pins cause excessive wear to the linkage mechanism , for they have no forgiveness to them. Roll pins are hardened spring steel they flex instead of bending , failure to have this in the system and the linkage breaks/ wears down fast.
