World renowned for being the most expensive stock gun in the world, the Earon Carter Buzzard is the Cadillac of all stock guns. If you play stock, and you want the best, the Buzzard is where itís at. All Buzzard stock guns are custom built by Earon Carter, one at a time. Buzzards come standard with deluxe horizontal feed tube, aluminum double sided pump, stainless steel DYE barrel, 45 trigger frame, vertical CO2 chamber, stainless steel receiver and adjustable velocity.
The Carter Machine Buzzard is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
Phantom-nice, lighter, not as smooth stroke
CCM-Series 5 Sniper-Nice, light, very smooth stroke, open class pump
CCI VSC Phantom
Roin Gear elite stock class harness
A nice T/L-Stock
3.5 oz tank for Constatn air play
The carter buzzard is the pinnacle of all stock class platforms, based upon the time tested nelson design, it is proven. Amazingly smooth pump stroek, and just feels great in the hands, it's a weapon of mass destruction. The quality is amazing and it's definetly a gem of a paintball marker. The customer service is amazing, if you have questions, Lauren is there to help. Compared to my phantom, this buzzard is definetly heavier. Then again, mine is the older Pre-dye carter that is equipped with the stainless steel barrel. Heavy yes, but is it worth it? You betcha. Get one if you got the chance, you won't deny it.
An amazing piece of craftsmanship. Stockclass ats it's best. Get it if you can.
Ive shot many high end pumps and this is probly one of the best concerning very good accuracy,even for a pump and very reliable. Some of my friends and uncle know carter personaly and the effort he putts into his guns from the gizzmo to the dessert duck. I dont know for sure but ive heard that the new carters have phantom internals ,if you know this for a fact , write another review to correct me, but other than that this gun is a top of the line type of gun and if you know the right people it would be alot easier to buy because of the waiting period and expense of the marker
I would recomend this product to any prostock player , not just because the name of the gun but because the quality and performance
Custom 2K4 Blue Urban Camo Buzzard, stock class with vertical bulk feed adaptor, vertical quick change with L-stock, DYE Izon sight.
None. It is already top of the line.
Accurate, reliable, built extremely well
The Buzzard is an extremely well built marker due to the stainless steel and aluminum construction. The barrel is very heavy due to the fact that it is made out of stainless steel but it is so accurate that no other barrel can come close to its performance. If you think it is going to be to heavy then get your Buzzard with a Titanium barrel.
The L-stock is a must. It allows you to tuck the Buzzard in close and also provides a stable platform for shooting.
One other thing is that it quite loud. But I haven't fount that to be a problem because with the accuracy of the Buzzard all you need is one shot anyway.
If this was the car world the Buzzard would definitely have to be the Ferrari while I would say that the Phantom would probably have to be a Mustang.
I wish I could give the buzzard a Product Rating of 12. Because that is the least it deserves.
2K3 Royal Blue Buzzard, stock class, veritcal quickchanger and L-stock
Accurate, reliable and the best stock class pump money can buy.
My Buzzard out shoots and out performed all my other pump markers.
I found that it shot better than the VSC and bulk phantom. Both had CCI Nickel Barrels, and the bulk feed was running a Palmer Stabilizer and Air.
It even out shot my Sniper 2 which had: 3:16 Rat valve, Phat Hammer, ANS Quick Pull Venturi Bolt, AA Vigilante reg, air and a 12" tear drop freak and 14" Dye Boomstick.
And to those that complain about the weight of the Buzzard, try running around with a Sniper 2, Ric full of paint and a 68 ci 4500 psi tank. I used this setup for 4 months and now my Buzzard is as light as air in comparison.
The stainless steel and aluminum construction gives the Buzzard a solid feel to it.
When compared to the pumps in my collection, the all aluminum construction of the phantom seems weak and inferior, my sniper is unwieldy and ugly and my PMI 2's all brass construction is fragile and inadequate.
And on a basis of looks my Buzzard out shines everything. Nothing Mike (CCI) can produce can compare. Only Punisher and Chipley Custom Machine can produce a something that can come close to the Buzzard.
At least in my mind
If you are serious about playing pump and want the best buy a Buzzard.
10 out of 10
