All of my carters had auto triggers straight from Earon, I would think that it was the original sear. What kind of threads are on the barrel? The older ones were Carter/taso threads and the newer were cocker threads. Another question is how many holes are in the power tube? The older ones had three and then he went to the two holes later which in my opinion were not as good.

1. The gun would not fire with the pump in the full forward position. The trigger plate would not contact the sear. You had to pull the pump back 3/16" before it would hit. There is no wear on the side slot, so it is not hogged out so the hammer/bolt was going too far forward. The bolt tip was just seating in the end of the barrel. Also, this is my second Buzzard, the first was not set up to auto trigger either.

2. The barrel does not appear to be Cocker threaded. It won't fit in my Cockers, and the Cocker barrels would not fit in the Buzzard. Here is a picture, the TPI seems to be different. The Cocker barrel will not fit into the Buzzard breech, it's OD is too large to allow it to slide in.



3. The power tube has two holes......

Thanks for all the help guys!

It also may not have been able to trip the sear due to the reciever not being tight against the valve or the trigger shoe is to far forward and it couldn't go back far enough to hit the sear. With the taso/carter threads it would be older than 96, the one I had from 93 had the taso/carter threads while my 96 had the cocker. Very nice gun you should have a great time playing with it.

The receiver part I was aware of, and it is snug against the valve body.

The trigger shoe is a different matter. It was limiting travel by 1/16". When I get a moment, I'll remove the trigger shoe and drop the original sear in to see what happens.

Sears:



On the top is the one that came with the gun, on the bottom is the one from my Deringer.

I swapped back to the original, and removed the trigger shoe. With the pump all the way forward, the sear would trip when the trigger was pulled all the way back, but the hammer would then hang up on the trigger plate on it's way to the valve.

I put the Deringer sear back in, and was then able to adjust the location of the trigger shoe so that it would allow auto-triggering, but still restrict the rearward movement of the trigger. Thanks Gunrunner......
