Gargoyle One-for-One Trade

Hi all! I decided to post this here since it's only relevant to other Garg owners.

I'm interested in trading my blue/black sponge anno custom Gargoyle with all its upgrades straight up for a stock(-ish) Gargoyle.

So you will be asking: Why? Well, I'm kind of out of the whole flashy gun phase. Sure, it looks great, but I want something ultra functional that I can beat up on, and it would be a tragedy to beat up on this gun.

It has two small issues. First, the nylon insert in the trigger tends to come loose due to the post-anno tolerance change. It needs a stronger adhesive or some sort of retaining screw, I just haven't had the time to mess with it. It works even when not directly attached, the trigger pull just isn't as smooth. Second, there's some anno wear on the barrel from the pump. It's only the blue, the black is still solid.

Anyways, the full saga of the build is located here, which details pretty much everything: Evolution of a Gargoyle

And the obligatory eye candy:




Like I said, I just want to trade straight up for a fully functional Garg in any cosmetic condition.

At first I said...WTF!!!!oh wait, that's ok....LOL

If you like this gun, if you really really like this gun and had no intentions of selling it......keep it and beat the snot out of it. I love the ano and I understand the concern. If you don't like the flash that's one thing. If you don't like babying it because it's flashy and don't want to damage it...that's another thing.

Honest, again, If you no longer like the flash....for sure sell or trade it.

But.....

I love my prized Gizmo Carter Buzzard. Not only is it very flashy but it represents my best friend and his passing. Because of that I play it and play it and play it. Every single dent, scratch and blemish that I give it is of no consequence to me as I know it is my gun. It's my gun and I will play it and not regret any of it. It was made by a dear friend Earon Carter (of course) who new and respected Mathias for his skill and character.

Some don't play their Gizmo Buzzard and that is ok, but I do as should you. Because............it's what Mathias (RTR) would want. As do I.

Again...if you don't want the flash....sell or trade no harm in that.
But if your protecting the gun because it's pretty....don't. (Just my opinion)

Enjoy it !!!!!!!!

The ano is great and cudo's to he who created it.



(And maybe a gloss black original trigger can make it better.....let me know)

Well, that's a good point. If you have a spare glossy trigger you could sell me that would be an insta-fix for that issue, which is the only real issue with the gun. Then I could attempt "fixing" the current trigger without worrying as much.

The gun is unique and I did build it for me. So maybe

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...
tlane77 He's got a woody for your woods.

Gonna say you have to keep it.... With how much talk you have done about it, and how much work you put into it. Plus it's your only gun now right? Use the crap out of it.
