Review: Reliability. I bought this marker off ebay. The seller had it serviced by Chipley's before he listed it and I haven't had to monkey with anything. I could shorten the pull, but my fingers are only about as fast as a dead snail anyway, so why bother?

I have NEVER chopped. I'm guessing that on five occasions now I was absolutely sure that I had finally chopped. Nope. Bolt clean everytime. Every single break I've had has been a barrel break. You CAN stick your pinky in the feed, rip the trigger as much as you like, and still not whimper even if you're a momma's boy.

I don't need to say a thing about accuracy. We all know that a cocker stays on target better because of less recoil. I've shot all kinds of barrels and, the more extremely cheap barrels aside, the biggest difference from barrel to barrel is noise. As long as your length is tailored to your operating pressure and playing style, it's a good barrel.

Most people haven't heard of CCM. The people you will get comments from are those who have been around the sport for a while. I'd seen Chipleys here and there, heard of their stellar reputation, but honestly wasn't really motivated to pursue any of their products until I saw this one on ebay. Picked it up with a ton of extras (barrels, HPA, barrel bag, swabs.... whole bunch of stuff. think he was cleaning his closet out) for $300. At that price, I figured it was about time to finally check it out. GLAD I DID! Chipley's products are 0% hype and 100% performance.

As with any other "cocker", a barrel kit is a must if you are going to be playing with paint you don't know. Once the bolt closes, if your paint is smaller than your barrel bore, it will roll right out the barrel. If you aren't going to get a kit, then at least get three different bore barrels so you're covered.

UPDATE: Somewhere, somehow something happened to my cup seal. Marker was fine when I put it away. Took it out and gassed it up and heard the dreaded hiss. Sent CCM an email or two about replacement of the seal and warranty policy regarding doing an LP conversion at home. In the end, it turned out it was cheaper to send it to them for repair than it would be to purchase a new cup seal and have it shipped to my home. What a deal. To top it all off, the flu ran through their workplace so my marker was shipped two days later than suspected. Problem is that I was playing on Saturday and on the phone with them on Wednesday and it hadn't shipped. YIKES!! Oh wait... Nevermind. It's CCM. Shipped it two-day on their dime so I wouldn't have to dig a Spyder out of my closet.
Conclusion: Only purchase CCM products if you are interested in quality. I personally have never seen a CCM banner, poster, jersey, full spread magazine add, or the like. Why advertise when the product speaks for itself?

UPDATE: Do not purchase CCM products if you are allergic to extra-mile, endless, perfect customer service.
