Boxgun Tolerances

I'm looking into getting a boxgun. I read an older review and it seems they suffer from the same finicky tight tolerance issues as some buzzards. Have the newer builds had issues with tolerances?

I had some issues with both of the newer generation boxguns that I owned. I think the earlier ones closer to a CIP in style are the nicest ones. That was the golden age of carters work in my opinion.

I have a CIP style from carter and it is pretty great.
(up for sale due to my VKC duck usage though)

Other Eric is right about those being the best.

With my 2013 boxgun, had to send it back to earon. The in handle C02 ASA knob needed more threading so it would pierce variety of 12 gram brands. Yes, the tolerances are tight. With my boxgun if you tighten the pump handle screw too much marker had tendency to auto-trigger.

Not as bad 2004 buzzard I owned, where the main body would slip cause auto trigger.

I have owned two box guns. Both (incl my current one) are newer builds (2012ish and 2013). The only issue I've had with them was over tightening the pump handle screws would cause the bolt to bind up on the main spring when pumped. Obviously, you just dont tighten them down all the way, and learn to check throughout the day that they arent coming loose. Otherwise they are both GREAT guns.

Ugh. Maybe a boxgun won't work for me then. I don't really have much time anymore to tinker when something goes wrong with my gear. The times that I do get to play, I just need my equipment to work. I don't want to worry about finicky equipment that goes out of wack if I over tighten one screw.

It's a shame. I really liked the feel of the ones that I got to fondle. I got chance to shoot one and I was impressed by how easy it was to sight.

It also had that magical straight trajectory that carters typically have, as opposed to my phantom which has an arching type of trajectory. <--- If you're reading this statement and you have this sudden urge to comment, don't. I'm just kidding. I just mean that I like the way it shot.

I was thinking of an extra long boxgun with woosh tip but I guess I'll have to pass. Thanks for the comments yall.

Put a pps brass barrel on a phantom

The extra weight will make it feel good.

Being a phantom will make it work good.

I was already screaming inside my head reading that trajectory thing.

Off topic, but Ctown do you still have that left feed superstocker?
