RTR Buzzards - now w/ a pic of mine

Here's mine

http://www.mcarterbrown.com/forums/a...s-100_4109.jpg

Just curious how many RTR Buzzards, RTR Buzzard pump handles, and RTR Buzzard Feed tubes Rodney did? I'd pm him since he's been awesome at responding to mine in the past, but I figured I don't want to be a pest and some of you out there might know (plus he'll see this thread eventually and answer I'm sure :))

I picked up a pump handle off the BST in Dec after seeing that Red RTR Buzzard go for $800 on ebay (after it sat at $700 for a week! :bang:), and I just bought my first Buzzard (FINALLY) from rkelley07 last night... Only bummer about picking up the Buzzard, I'm going to have to start saving some of my spending $ again for the next run of Gargoyles... OR... I have to figure out a way to bribe my wife into letting me take a "loan" out of our saving! :rolleyes:

soooo yeah, anyone know how many are out there? Not sure if I should ask this question in the Carter forum too/instead.

Picture of the Red RTR Buzzard that was for sale back in DEC (this is actually an old one I found on mcb from back when Rodney had it (I think)):

I knew if anyone would know, you would :gunsfiring:

Those things are gorgeous. I'll snap a pic of mine once I'm home during some daylight (prob not till Sat) and put it up here... I might just have to snag up one of the feedtubes (know a guy who had one for sale and never sold it) just to make it a "complete" RTR'd buzzard ;)

given the buzzard a test run yet? shoots awesome, right?

I won one in 06, but I just couldn't handle the 1.5 hinge frame.

;) It won't have the 1.5 for to long... I figure the buttery-smooth pump (haven't even had it on the field yet and I already love it!) deserves a like-wise buttery-smooth slider ;)

Although to be honest for the price I picked it up for from Rkelley, it's MUCH better than a similarly priced stock phantom trigger... so I'm not complaining... I just love my Slider on my Redux = perfect

Yeah man, I shot it in the back yard as soon as I got home! Shooting cheap-o Infinity paint and it actually kept a pretty nice group! 286-295 w/ the occasional 30X and a 275... can't wait to get to out for a game on Sat!

Now I just have to find some Premium paint that sizes in in the .687-.689 range... OR, I might have to invest in an insert kit... can't get any of my cocker threaded barrels to thread :scratch: the threading looks like it's slightly different that standard cocker threads - still new to Carters

thanks again bro!
