Adventure Game Supplies Comp Nelson c. 1988-89


In this quick video I look at an Adventure Game Supplies Comp Pump.
This was AGS’ high end pump option manufactured until around summer of 1989 as a direct competitor to the Carter Comp and the NW line of pumps.

The unique details on the AGS comp are the undercocking pump action and linkage, which is similar to a Carter Comp or NW Comp but instead a welded arm the linkage is screwed together.
I have seen about five AGS comps pop up over the last decade. This one came up for sale locally and a friend, Darren, bought it and sold it to me.

Adventure Game Supplies was run by David Craig and Matt Brown (later Taso), and based out of Southern California. In the mid to late 1980s they owned several store and also operated as one of the largest large mail order catalogs. John Pope and Danny Guardado were both employed by AGS during the period the AGS comp was produced and both remember this pump but don’t remember many (or any) selling.

Thought mail order and ads in Action Pursuit Games the AGS was likely sold through out the US. Aside from undercocking and a sloped body (from 1 inch to about 7/8″) this AGS comp is essentially just AGS’ low end Devastator breech drop pump with stock Nelspot Internals.
