Review: Well, this is one of the nicest pumps i have ever used. Heres how its breaked down:

Looks: Heck yeah, this is a nice pump, why you say that, just stock black it looks nice. Well crafted and just looks nice. Comes with the CCM clamping feedneck, a nice regulator, a delrin backblock... SWEET!!!!

Performance: The speed and the mauverability of this thing is nice...
I mean nice. The CCM pump kit, one of the best made is buttery smooth. For it has nothing to do with the hammer assembly unlike nelson based pumps (CCI, Carter) IF you get a series 5 with the autotrigger kit,oh man, be prepared to hose even the semi players down.

Maintanece: Know how to work an autococker, good then, thats what it is basically...
It's more of a private labled sniper 2. It's easy to upkeep, just make sure the bolts good, and your ready to roll.

Durability/Use
These things are durable. The pump kit can withstand a lot of hard pumping done. There are two stablizing rods in the pump guide so you'll always chamber a ball smoothly.

Compared to a Phantom:
If you know me, i run through a lot of phantoms. I am a CCI fanboy. Yes i am. Phantoms are great for stockclass. But, slightly suffer in open pump class for one, i don't like the deisgn when i use a hopper like a revvy with the phantom. The pump stroke is not always smooth on a phantom, that, comes with time. The nice thing about phantoms is the weight, its easy to load 10 rounds and go. Slides are done, rolls, etc.

The Series V, on the other hand is also very nice. Out of the box, it's smooth stroking. It can be ran on 12 grams, but with a series V, you dont have a stock class feed for it, like the SS-25's have. Thus, it's most of the time spends it life as a Open pump class marker. I run a 45/4500 tank on it, with a revvy. It gets the distance like any other cocker with a nice barrel. I whip out this thing for the days i want to hose paint, and yet conserve it at the same time. With the agressiveness i play, i really don't like sliding with this, why, it's a bit hefty for a pump. I meanSeries 5+ revy full of paint+ 2 pods+ 45/4500 tank compared to my stock class set up, phantom+3.5 oz, 10 ten round tubes+ t-stock
totally a difference in weight.

Bottomline: :tup: its a nice pump for open class, if you want to do stock class too, get a ss-25...



Conclusion: One of the nicest pumps made using the best of Chipley. Great for open play, but not for stock class play. If you want a nice stock class set and yet switch between styles, get either a phantom or a ss-25 for more options....
