Here's my wire stock Bushmaster. Notice the pump screws are hand engraved, they were done by Ross Alexander for himself. Before they started making the standard ones.

Dale, does your barrel has SI engraved onto it? Was this your gun or a gun for the Bushmasters? If not yours do you know who?

Yours looks like an earlier version of the 007 wire stock. Remember that the first Bushmasters were modified/upgraded 007. Later Line SI started building complete markers and some upgrade parts. Also some of those upgrade parts were improved over the years. Sugarstump's stock looks to be a newer version. But yours is historically correct as well.

Dan, I got this one from Ross Alexander. We became good friends after he moved to Colorado. I don't know who it was made for. I think it was his personal gun, the other pump arm bolt has an 'R' engraved into it for 'Ross'. I don't know if it has an SI on the barrel, I never really checked for that. I will the next time I play with it.

And about that wire stock. MPSD is totally correct. Earlier bushys that started out as barrel kits (with the 007 Grip frame) used your version, which wouldn't work on the newer grip frames. Hence the re-design and newer style on mine. Both are cool examples of old gun tech.

Hey sugarstump: are those home-made "slot blockers"? Or were they Line SI manufactured or maybe even aftermarket parts? I've never seen them before... then again I might just not have ever noticed. Maybe just a Factory Team upgrade perhaps?

Back in the day the 'slot blockers' were made by taking black 10 round 'TOURNAMENT' tubes and cutting them, like I have in the picture. The 'Tournament' tubes are different than the common ones today. Primarily they were softer plastic (not the hard brittle style that they use today), and they were bigger on the inside. So you never had that last paintball stuck in the bottom of the tube. They also didn't have the rings around the outside of the tube, just smooth down the entire sides. They were easy to cut out with scissors. The one's these days are almost impossible to cut like this. Later on Adventure Game Supplies (then TASO) came out with an actual cover kit you could buy, but they were much thicker than the tube material. We old crawling players put these in place to keep out the dirt.

Awesome, thanks for the info; learn something new every day. The only flaw IMO of any side or top-cocking pump design (bolt/hammer assy. being exposed to the elements) is solved right there w/ that great little in expensive fix! Again, thanks for sharing!
