Upgrades:
Upgrades:
Barrel Kit - the stock isn't bad, but its always nice to have a kit

Accessories:
HPA/N2/Compressed Air - its all the same stuff, just call it what you want
Agitated Hopper
Strengths: Lightweight, fast, short trigger pull, recoiless, price, has some delrin
Weaknesses: Looks, no gauge port, paint job
Review: Pros:

Lightweight:
Without a tank, and a hopper it weighs only 2.5 pounds. Even with everything its very light for a cocker. If you have a light tank, then you're all set with one of the lightest cockers made.

Speed:
For a mech cocker this thing rips. My friend got it up to 13 bps consistantly. I can outshoot my 12V Revolution (it only feeds like 11 bps for real) with it if I try. Everyone I shot all thought I was using an electro, since they saw a huge barrage of balls coming at them.

Delrin:
The bolt is half delrin half aluminum. The part that is aluminum is the part that doesn't touch the marker so It won't scatch. The pull pin is also delrin. All you need is a delrin back block if you are going to go all delrin.

Trigger:
This thing is set very short. I could pay $20 to have someone else do it, and get the same results. Its not the shortest pull, but its good enough.

Barrel:
It is almost a real self cleaning barrel. After a break or chop, I shoot like twice and its fine. Even with paint in the barrel it's still pretty accurate.

Recoil:
Since its a closed bolt marker it has very little recoil. The result of this is better that you can hold your gun straight for longer. It isn't true that closed bolt markers are more accurate, its just that they have less recoil resulting in you staying on target.

Price:
It has an amazing price of $390. When I bought it it was $500. For what you get its a great deal.

Cons:

Looks:
It looks like a matrix without milling and much skinnier. Personally I don't mind, but for all you who want a cocker with sexy milling like the orracle or outkast this gun isn't for you. I don't mind since people always underestimate the gun, then I shoot them and they think otherwise.

No GaugePort:
I wish I could put a gauge on both the regs, but there isn't a port for one. I know that the LPR runs from 0-70 PSI and I've got it set near the middle, but I don't know what the inline reg is set to.

Paint Job:
For 2004 CCM released two different paint jobs for the black Series 5. One is a matte and the other is a gloss. The matte scatches very easily, for me this is bad since I can't stand scratches, but I'll get over it. If you get it in another color (very rare) you might not have the choice between matte and gloss.
Conclusion: Great marker. I wouldn't recomend it before a tournament, unless you already have a cocker that's not as good. It makes a great second gun, and first cocker. If you want to be different and have a lesser known cocker get this gun it's great.

There is actually a port for a gauge on the front block. It's the allen bolt facing down.

Well I was talking about the regs. I found the one under the front block. I don't like the look of one coming out of it, I would much rather it be on the regs.
