Carter Machine Sterling, Mac 1 Annihilator, PGP, Sterling and KPs...

Still slowly catching up on the items I added to inventory last month. Here is a group of pump paintguns with a few really neat vintage pumps. 

Misc pumps that were uploaded in the beginning of September. Misc pumps that were uploaded in the beginning of September.

This group of pump paintguns, that are not nelson based, include a Carterized Sterling I picked up about 5 or 6 years back.  This stock Proline Sterling was cut by Carter Machine and anodized at I believe PK Selective in a red, Black and silver splashed (or acid wash?). This was likely produced around 1993-1995.

The parts on this Carter Machine Sterling are internally all stock but the exterior has aesthetic cuts to the body and barrel.  The other Aluminum pieces are match anodized and aside from a few small dings this Sterling is in great shape.

Earon Carter told me these Carter Machine Sterlings were made for ABC Paintball but I'm not really sure if that's true or not.

I've seen similar Sterlings that Carter Machine cut up in a Green Splash, a Purple Splash, and a few others in this same red. I've seen between 6 and 10 total.

I also posted an article on Fernando Castillo's Sterling which doesn't have the front sight rail cut and is a polished raw silver several months back here:

Mac 1 MK 1 Annihilator with Mac 1 Quick config 12 gram changer. Mac 1 MK 1 Annihilator with Mac 1 Quick config 12 gram changer.

Also in this batch is a MK1 Annihilators with a PMI 1 based lowertube. I purchased this off ebay probably six to 8 years back.  It's seen some use and, as with all MK1 Annihilators I've come across, the black paint is missing in sports.  I call it brass and black camo and the brass underneath is in great shape.

Most MK1 Annihilators were built off PGPs and use the PGP lower tube and will require a longer Mac 1 Quick Config to operate but with a PMI 1 lower tube, a shorter Quick Config can be used.

The cracked Marble colored grips are from a Benjamin Sheridan pellet pistol. They were on this Annihilator when I received it.

This Annihilator also has both the Quick Config and the side tap, which isn't usually on drop slotted MK 1 Annihilators.

Next is a PGP with some PMI Rubber Grips and a cut down Mac 1 1st generation Annihilator pump handle. Basically stock otherwise.  I built is as a loaner and it might have been used once, but again, too many loaner pumps that no one wants to use.

I used this PGP for a tutorial on cutting a quick strip slot.  This video can be seen above.

Modern Sterling setup with backbottle asa Modern Sterling setup with a back bottle asa.

Here is a more recent Arrow Precision Sterling with Spyder thread.  The Feed is reversible and I set it up as a back bottle asa.  I picked this up in a Sterling parts lot, set it up as a loaner and after no one has used it, figured I'll sell it.

I did a video on breaking this sterling down which I'll edit eventually and compared the frame to a Belsales cocker frame, checking to see if this frame would work on a Sniper but unfortunately the screw holes and pin holes are spaced slightly differently. I also set this Sterling up as a back bottle after I received a couple questions about this setup (combination of classic and modern parts) was possible.  I like the back bottle for running a Rat Attack changer off of.  The main reason I purchased this sterling though, was to see if the hammer's sear was the same as classic sterlings.  It is and I'm still hoping that Arrow Precision will come through on selling me some sears.

Palmerized KP2 project gun body. Partially Palmerized KP2 body with quicksilver and valve work.

I also added two KP bodies that I've parted out over the years.  The first is a Palmerized KP-2 with a quick silver and I think a Palmer's valve.

The quick silver is pictured above.

The Detent is a crap job and I don't believe it was done by Palmers.

 The feedneck, solder job, are not done with the best craftsman ship.  There is also a side tap. The quick silver is complete and there is also an insta-pierce installed.

The second KP-2 body that someone went crazy on.  I picked this up from David Tripp, who ran Tripp's Paintball Supplies out of Windsor, California. I'm not sure who did the modifications on this body but they include:
•Direct Feed
•Cut down lower tube and rethreaded
•Threaded hole under the valve and going into the valve for increased flow? Solder on the sides to cover the enlarged valve passage.

Right feed on project kp2 body. Crappy right feed on cut up KP2 project brass body. Extra solder on the sides for enlarged valving.

More air holes for venting?

Project KP lower tube. Front of lower tube was cut down and it almost looks like a piece was soldered back on? Definitely a project KP.

I think this was an attempt at a, "You don't need to buy a KP3, we'll just upgrade your KP2," job.

And of course, some Splatmaster shells.  These are empty and work well as a paper weight or to build a project around. Find Splatmaster parts on baccipaintball at:

One more load of parts from last month and then I'll be posting items from October that have been uploaded so far.  Hopefully this week I'll also start inventorying some Tippmann parts.
