Recommended
Upgrades:
Barrel is the ONLY upgrade you will ever need to do
Strengths: Light weight, Awesome Trigger Pull, No chopping at all...
Weaknesses: Only one..., stock barrel. Acceptable but there are better ones out there.
Review: Well,

I got my new cocker and played with it for the first time Sept 19th, one word, awesome... The trigger is amazing, makes a hinge look like crap. Smooth pull with almost no effort, first day out with it and I never short stroked once.

I have owned 2 other cocker's in the past one slider and one hinge, never liked the trigger on either one, sold them both they were so crappy. Not this baby, it won't be going anywhere.

Incredibly light too, the only cocker I've ever had my hands on that may be lighter is a Dye ultralight and it's pretty close...

The gun is quiet as hell, cycles ultra smooth and has a very unique look.
The only drawback (and I mean the ONLY drawback) is the stock barrel is not great, but that is true of almost any gun you buy, a barrel upgrade is the first upgrade most people do. (I'm thinking to go with a Matchstick kit from MacDev)

Couple of other nice features, clamping feedneck stock, delrin/alum bolt stock, stainless cocking rod/pump arm/timing rod stock, pneumatics are among the best out there, no need to upgrade ever. No need to pull bolt to adjust hammer lug, no need to pull cocking rod to adjust velocity, all Chipley's are hand tuned before they leave the factory, and they have a lifetime warranty..., Sweet!!!

Conclusion: Buy one, if you can afford the J2 go for it, if not the Series 5 are pretty much the same gun without the fancy milling, trust me you will be impressed...

"No chopping at all..." -well, considering you're using a fast hopper on a gun that is is extrmemly hard to shoot 13bps, i shouldn't wonder why you don't chop... but nice review... just my pain in the butt comments screwing it up ;-)

Except for the part where product quality and the bolt come in to play, yes this determines what chops and doesnt. but hey dont feel bad toothpastedog your not the only idiodic moron out there... well you sure are the dumbest. man are you dumb.

"Except for the part where product quality and the bolt come in to play" -huh? you could easily chop with the ccm composite bolt if you short stroked, or shot too fast for your hopper.

I don't know why these guys are busting ya about it not chopping. You're right...it doesn't. They probably haven't used the thing.

I've had mine for a year now and it has NEVER bolt chopped, even in cold weather. I purposely tried short stroking, and all it ever does is pinch the ball lightly or bloop out a double feed. This marker is simply magic.

is yours all stock, with no adjustments?
   

bradu Monday, October 4th, 2004 | 9:49 am PST
Mine is completly stock, the only adjustment I made was to the LPR in colder weather to get it cycling fully, otherwise it was directly out of the box, slapped on a drop and macroline and away I went...

Oh, and the first time I played with it I was using a 12v revy, I just picked up the egg a week ago...

Cheers,
Brad

wow, well, i guess you're using good paint ;-)

I usually use ZAP tork, 'cause that's what they sell at the field I play at.

It's decent, but certainly not the best paint out there...
