The concept has fast become a necessity in the tournament world today. When your marker is equipped with a CCM Feedneck you just feel better and when you feel better you play better. Now you can run, jump, and slide into your bunker without that ever-nagging feeling of losing your paint supply. Many have tried but nobody has topped the Trademark CCM Clamping Feedneck, so if you want your performance to be the best it can be, a CCM Feedneck should be your next upgrade!
The Chipley Custom Machine CCM Heli-Clamp Feedneck is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
Normally I use a standard feed neck with an elbow... Doesnt come close to this product in quality and security.

14'' Empire Twister barrel
Evo 2 hopper
sub-zero 6 stage x chamber
20 oz CO2
Creates a death grip on you hopper. Easy to install.
None that i have noticed.
Overall this product is great, I am a woodsballer and normally with an standard elbow my hopper would become loose, thus making it fall off. I was sick of loosing 200 paintballs being smashed and broken in my hopper, so i got the CCM Heli clamp for 15$. This is a cheap, reliable item and i strongly recommend to anyone to get one. This also will lower your hopper about 2-3 inches, which is great... creates a lower profile. IF YOU STILL USE A STANDARD PLASTIC ELBOW I WOULD STRONGLY RECOMEND YOU GET ONE OF THESE.
p.s. Make sure if your gun will except feed necks with holes or tabs. most spyders take tabs on their feednecks.
10/10, great product. Couldnt ask for anything better.
regular Spyder feedneck with gigantic elbow-way worse

Looks, no-rise, good grip on your hopper.
Needs allen-wrench to adjust, instead of a lever to clamp and un-clamp it.
I got my CCM Heli-Clamp Feedneck for my Spyder Pilot ACS because, as we all know, the elbow that comes with Spyders sucks like no other. A clamping feedneck is a very useful upgrade, and should be one of the first things you get for your Spyder.
Looks: The anodizing on it is great! Very high-quality color, and I personally think that the "CCM" on the clamping band looks good.
Clamping: Superb, but a lever clamper would be great, instead of having to tighten it with an allen wrench.
Mine doesn't fit quite perfect in the feedneck hole, the part that sticks out a little bit to fit into the hole is too broad, it makes the screws stick out a bit more than they would normally, but it could be ground down easily.
If you don't mind tightening it with an allen wrench, having a lever, and if your able to grind down the one part, get it. Very good feedneck except for the above problems. I give it a...

CCM Heli-Clamp Feedneck
48/30 PMI Alum. Tank
Holds The Hopper Still
It's Lower Than The Stock Feedneck
Needs An Allen Wrench To Adjust
I got it immediately when I first got my Spyder Pilot ACS. I didn't like the look of the stock feedneck and heard that the plastic adapter breaks easily and I didn't want to risk loosing my hopper in game! =D I know this review is abit short but it's my first so cut me some slack lol!
I would recommend it if you want to upgrade from your stock feedneck, no problems for me so far so I give it a 10 out of 10!
Stock spyder feed neck. No comparison to this one.
pilot acs '05,vl revolution hopper,12oz brass eagle co2,16" sp linear barrel, ccm feedneck .
Provides a great grip on my hopper. Makes gun very compact.
I dunno if this was mine, but mine didn't come with a screw.
I went to paintball doctor of plano texas and got this feed neck. when i first opened it, it felt so light, like plastic. i then noticed that there wasn't a screw in it. i just went out to lowes and got a 8/32 hex nut. it was a little under a dollar and 50 cents for a four pack. i then got home and put it on my gun. it was very hard to install since the feedneck got in the way of the screws. i scratched it a little bit. it still works perfectly though.

Not hard to tighten at all
Fits any hopper
None at all
I needed a new feedneck for my Spyder, so I bought the CCM. It's by far the best feedneck you will ever find for your Spyder. Unlike others, you an tighten it enough with your fingers and not have much difficulties, although you might want to use an allen wrench to tighten it all the way.
True, its around $35 which may seem expensive, but for the quality, you really get what you paid for, plus some.
If you need a new feedneck, buy this. Its cheap, looks great, and is the best feedneck you'll find.
Requires allen wrench to adjust
Hard to fit on body
Well, the first thing that I noticed when I opened the package was the excellent finish - it's just a feed neck, but it's got a better finish on it than anything else on my marker!
But then I went to install it, and it didn't quite fit all the way in my marker body (whether this is CCM's problem or due to poor tolerances from Kingman I do not know) so I tried leaving it in the freezer, and my marker in the sun for a few hours - still didn't fit.
Upon close examination I discovered that the corners of the neck tabs had a larger radius that that of the stock neck, basically the tabs were too wide, so i got out my dremmel and started sanding... I got it to fit after fiddling with the dremmel for a while, though I left it pretty snug. and now of course there is a silver edge just visible where it meets my marker body...
Once I had it installed properly, I put my hopper on, and it holds it better than the elbow, plus it doesn't feel like it's about to break off if I breath on it too hard!
Having to use an allen wrench isn't too big of a deal, since I have a set in my tool bag anyway, and it feels more secure to me than the quick-release necks.
Excelent grip on hopper
A little hard to install
Overall an excelent product!

I picked this piece up for one reason: to tighten up the profile on my gun. I already had a CIP slip-on that held my revvy well enough, but it was tall as hell. I picked up a CCM sliver clamping neck on Ebay for like 30.00, and I love it. It holds on to my revvy, and my new egg, with a deathgrip. The installation to the marker was seamless and easy. The only little nag about it is you need an allen key to tighten it, but anyone who plays paintball probably has one in their tool kit anyway. The nice thing is, once you tighten it, you won't need to again, so you don't have to take the allen key on the field. The neck looks good on the gun, with a nice finish and shine. Best of all, the neck lowers my egg right down above the gun. That, combined with a shortened-up chute on the egg means I have the tightest profile possible, and I'm loving that.
Overall, this is an awesome product. It looks good, does the job flawlessly, and is reliable. If it were a little cheaper, it would be nice, but if you don't want to risk dropping your electronic hopper because a crappy plastic elbow broke, or you want to max out your upgrades and tighten up your gun, then get this feedneck!
Can only be tightened/released with allen wrench
I got this feedneck to replace the stock feedneck on my spyder where i also had to use a plastic elbow. When i put it on the tabs were a little big so the screws couldn't go down quite all the way, but i have played with my gun twice since and it has not been a problem. Visually the gun looks a lot better with the hopper sitting closer to the gun, and it makes for a little bit of a smaller target. It holds on like a vicegrip so I'm not worried in the least bit of it falling off.
The only things I didn't like about this part were that it costed a little bit more than i expected a small part like this would cost ($30), and you can only tighten/loosen it with an allen wrench(but thats only a minor flaw that doesn't really matter).
Overall a great product. It holds on strongly, its low to the gun. It costs a little much but thats the only real weakness to it so I would definetely recommend it to anyone.
spider Xtra, 20 ounce CO2 (upgrading to N2 though) CCM Heli-Clamp Feed neck
Lowers your hopper by about 2 to 3 inches
Hold your hopper toight!
Allen wrench for tightining
Didnt fit flush with my gun
Well, its a feedneck, so. when i first got it i tried to put it on, but the tabs came out a bit too far, so it didnt fit flush with my gun, so i muscled the screws in (keep in mind it pit perfectly well with my brothers gun), put my hoppers in, tightined the feedneck almost all the way, the hopper didnt budge. after a whole day of paintball ive had no problems
(but i got a hopper hit :(
Lowers your profile, sturdy, just buy it.
giving it a 9 because it didnt fit flush
Price But Worth the money
My spyders stock elbow just broke no joke. I was cleaning it and I tightend it up a little and just broke. I decided to go bar none and buy a nice feed neck and picked this up for 32 bucks with tax. The whole feed neck is only about 1 inch and ads a nice look to the gun, and since it is so short I don't have to shake it any more. There is no hopper movement at all the feedneck has a deathgrip that will hold on to any hopper.
An excellent product that is weel built holds hopper more securely and has a reasonable price. Get one.
