Buzzard... How old?

I just picked this one up...



Per the seller:

Quote:
Mini Buzzard

Its like a regular Buzzard, only it has a shorter pump.

It is not ready to go as you can see by the picture, it is missing the rat-a-tac, but that can be simply purchased and screwed right on or you can screw on a tank.

It has been sitting in storage for many years, so I would have to guess that it may need a new o-ring or two, and the trigger needs to be tweaked out.

It is the very old style body (you can tell by the barrel threads) with a pivot trigger.

The marker is technically new, as it hasn't been played with, shot, or even air-ed up. However, its been sitting in a pile of other buzzards, so it may have a few scratches on it, and that is why I listed it as used.

In my book, this is sort of a project gun.
Any thoughts on it's age? No matter what flavor of Buzzard, it was too cheap to pass up.....

Who has a pile of Buzzards sitting around?

Thanks in advance,


Walker

it's got a humpback frame, and the rest looks pre-dye. Maybe 2000-2001?

If it has barrel threads it is post 97 (IIRC) better picture with the pump removed and that awful hard line off would help date it better. Be prepared for rust judging by the trigger rust there indicates lost more growing on the inside.

It came in with a bunch of goodies;


I stripped it down, cleaned, relubed, replaced the disintegrating orings, and removed the old hardline that was on there.


The only problem I found was that the sear had been modified so that it could be auto-triggered.


I replaced that, and it shoots beautifully.
