Here is a cool Carterized pump, a Bore Drop Carter, known as a Maximaster that Frank, from Excessive Force Paintball had on ebay (link no longer valid on ebay):

Here is a little more information on this pump that I just wrote up for Frank: 

Although comprised of a few different parts this is a pretty neat Carterized pump known as a Maximaster.

Sonny Lopez showed me this pump last december (2012) and a couple features that might not be apparent on the first glance:

feed collar and rebline pump handle.
Crop shot of left side. Showing rebline pump, and feed collar.

 •The body is a stainless Carter Snub in bore drop length, not breech drop so it takes a lapco spirit or bushmaster bolt (currently has a lapco).

•The Body is made for a later style bushmaster snub so the valve body sits in further eliminating the need for the 2 back valve body screws.

Stan russell stock.
Cut up stock is a Stan Russell Stock.

•The stock is a Stan Russell stock.

•The body uses Line SI style barrels which can likely be freak bored.

Unfortunately the body looks lightly sanded/brushed and the pump arm is polished. Still a really neat hybrid pump that doesn’t have some of the minor annoyances of other pumps of the period, it uses a lot of easy to find nelson parts and easily it’s easily modernized because of the barrel style.
