Breech Drop Carter Machine Stock Class Line SI conversion

A Stock Class Line SI Conversion by Carter Machine

In November I purchased this unique Carter Machine Line SI conversion off ebay. This Nelson based pump appeared to be a Bore Drop Maximaster conversion similar to what Earon was building for Peter Clark of Peter’s Paintball Pursuit Player Products (PPPPP) in the early 1990s. After receiving this pump I realized it was actually breech drop, similar to a Buzzard.

Most of the guns that Carter Machine put together for Peter Clark were Bore Drop so this breech drop was a little unusual but made sense because Clark was likely bringing any pumps he bought to Earon, which I’m sure included some Breech drop as well.
This conversion was likely built by Carter Machine’s shop when they were located in Hawthorne. This would have been around 1992-1994? I had thought the base was a Line SI Skirmish, but the Skirmish pump only used one pump arm, where this conversion has two.

A majority of this marker is polished to go along with the stainless body and barrel threads are Taso. The bolt is an unusual stainless model that I haven’t seen before. The bolt doesn’t resemble a Line SI Skirmish, Carter Buzzard or Lapco Ghost bolt. I think it might be a Taso Bore Drop bolt that was cut down?  The hammer is Carter Machine (or possible Taso). The Powertube assembly and pump handle are from a Line SI Bushmaster.

I’ll be posting a video shooting this Maximaster sometime this week.
