This marker is unbelievably smooth and crisp, very consistent and accurate. I bought one initially used (2002), played with it and loved ti so much I have bought two more and will plan on gettting another Chipley marker soon. Basically, you hit what you aim at, and I have no problem pegging opponenets through bunker cracks at 50 yards away.
The consistency is +/- 5fps, and the reg that comes with marker works fantastically. I have no problems with it and it has been easy to break down and rebuild. It is aluminum, lightweight, and matches the marker.
The pneumatics have gone through a few versions, initally using an STO ram, MacDev Sonic LPR, and Chipley 3-way in 2000. This was slowly upgraded over the years to the CCM aluminum rams, CCM aluminum LPR, and newer CCM 3-ways. All versions work great, although I prefer my all-CCM markers. They are also clean, and lightweight.
The body milling is beautiful, also going through a few versions, from the AKA Merlin bodies in 2000 to the CCM milled bodies 2001 and on. The eventually added a W on the body in addition to the barrel and trigger frame. It is a lightweight body and easy to clean.
The barrel is nice and matches the body, but I have not used the stock barrel as I have a complete Dye boomstick/titanium kit for play.
Triggers are ridiculousy sweet, either the slider or hinge. The slider is well planned and buttery smooth, with no upgrade to a roller sear necessary - I did it and found no improvement, so I put the roller sear on another marker that needed it. The slider on my 2000 Works has a 2mm tigger, buttery light and smooth. I love it and can shorter further. The only drawback is that there is no trigger stops on the slider. There are also plastic-tipped set screws to tighten up the trigger pull and remove any play.
Hinge triggers are very tight, no slop, and easily tuned, with trigger stops built in. I have a nice tight 1mm trigger pull on the hinge (3mm at the bottom of the 2-finger trigger) that is light as anything, only topped by my EBlade with delrin trigger. You can even remove the trigger spring (the only real mod) to lighten it futher.
Internals are Chipley, and need no upgrading.
Utterly fantastic marker with no need to upgrade - all the parts are top of the line and it shoots like a dream. All 3 Works cocker operate effortlessly, and if you know how to use a cocker, you will find these a blessing to play with.
