Buzzard V. MiniBuzzard V. Comp?
What the difference between the three? On the sight the comp lookis different but the buzzard and mini buzzard look the same.

Thanks in advance,

No collar on the Mini Buzzard. The feed bolts directly to the snub. The tray also bolts to snub from the bottom.

The Mini-Comp is the aluminum bodied cousin of the Buzzard series. It also features undercocking pump arms and is available only in the BBA configuration (talking to Lauren/Earon it seems he is not set up tooling/machine wise to do VSC Comps anymore).

The Mini-Buzzard is likely a more solid build than the Buzzard, if only because you are actually securing the various components together with screws as opposed to relying on a friction clamp collar. I love Buzzards but it does take some care to keep them singing.

Random fact I learned yesterday from Earon. The Buzzard was named after his friend. I forgot his real name, but his nickname was "buzzard." He was a fireman that passed and Earon decided to call his new make the buzzard after his friend.

So the Buzzard has not changed at all as far as design and design flaws?

Not design flaws, it's just different and a little more finicky. But no, it's still the same design it's always been.

Okay.. thanks Frink... I know about snugging up the snub and valve assembly so as not to cause A/T issues... anything else to keep in mind?

I'm fairly anal about maintenance on my markers so I'm not all to worried... just would like to know what to watch for.

If you replace the bolt oring you may need to sand it down a little for proper fit, don't try and polish your sear, etc.

Don't mess with it essentially
