Review: this gun is the ultimate open clase pump gun. it has everything.

quality- the best. it doesnt get any better. out of all the guns ive seen since i have started playing, this is on par with the best. out of all teh cockers i have seen, it probably is the best or equal to teh super high end custom ones....then again, it is chipley CUSTOM machine

appearance/first impression

LIGHT! for a full bodied cocker, it really doesnt get much lighter. i would put money on that. BEAUTIFUL! when people say pics dont do it justice, you cant understand till you see one. they are gorgeous. the milling and anoo are FLAWLESS. fit and finish is perfect and in par with the best gun made. oh yeah the grip is very very thin. it has hard plastic panels, and feels ok, but will probably be too small if you have a big hand. i can see some not liking it. i belive it would feel perfect with gloves on.

good stuff

well comes with a ccm on off and rail- quality. bolt is made of light delrin with 2 nub style detends with detend holes cut in teh bolt to reduce wear. it comes with a cmm heli clamp feed, and a ccm reg. good reg, but the fitting sticks out the side right into you hand, which sucks. the trigger is made of delrin, and is VERY light and snappy. easily the best trigger ive ever seen on a cocker. it really doesnt get much better out of teh box. better yet, its adjustable. insane. chipley outdid themselves.

the pump

OMG. this is on par with the smoothest pump ive ever used. this, and a carter buzzard are about tied, and that is saying something. the stroke on this is godly. it puts a phantom to shame. first off, it does not come with a return spring, so its stupidly light and will almost not stay closed unless your hand is on it (if you tilt it back it will almost recock). i find this stupid. we put a phantom spring in there and its still very light and smooth but returns. thre autotrigger works well, but different. when you autotrigger, the trigger actually moved forward and back as you pump, whereas a phantom just stays back. its an odd feeling coming from a phantom. rof is about as good as it gets for pump, and without any spring, probably better. if it was up to me, i would use a phantom spring and cut it so it was pretty darn light but enough to keep the botl closed.

performance

out of the box it was shooting like 270, but the reg wasnt perfectly sweetspotted, and it was inconsistant. at teh middle of the day (couple hundred balls later), we had it sweetspotted. but even after this it made a farting noise. chron was about +/- 8. we gotta get the reg broken in. because of these things and a new gun efficeicny wasnt the greatest, but will get better. not bad, but not tuned cocker like. i think it was like 1200-1300 or so if my estimate is close. i am probably off. with more tuning, and a broken in gun i would imagine it would be better.

Conclusion: This is the ultimate open class pump marker. you can custom build a cocker, but to get the trigger, pump, beauty, and feel/lightness of this gun you will have to spend 500+ and to a lot of custom work. out of teh box, there is no better autococker pump gun. period. i think it would be perfect if the reg didnt have that retarded fitting coming out of the side, but that is minor considering how rediculous this gun is compared to everythin else in this class.

I'm sorry, but could you please check spelling and grammar? That was really hard and annoying to read.
