A professional level cocker at an entry level price. Built with all the same internals and pneumatics as the J2. The difference between the Series 5 and the J2 is mainly aesthetics, and weight. And like everything else from CCM, the S5 is warrantied for life and proudly made in the USA. The S5 comes in polished Black, with polished pneumatics. Each of the components is hand tested and inspected to ensure the highest level of performance and reliability. Now shipping with the CCM 12" Barrel.
- 12" Aluminum One Piece Barrel
- CCM Clamping Feedneck
- Laser Engraved Insignia
- Hand Inspected and Tuned
The Chipley Custom Machine Series 5 is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
Kapp drop w/ on/off
macro heavyflow line
better bolt the progressive it comes with is fine and macro line is a must for all guns
best mechanical trigger
small profile 3/4 the size of a normal cocker
I just recently purchaced this fine specimen and its lovely. It may not be to pretty but it beats my 2k2 WGP with ANS pneumatics and ANS reg with ANS internals and an STO hinge with superfly bolt. The trigger pull is sick I can walk the trigger with ease no joke. They gun is light way light and with the upgrades I have done its only lighter. Stock reg is good but no slot for a gauge.
I would recommend this to any cocker fan because its simply the best non-electro cocker I have ever shot or owned. I love my Bushy but it is no cocker I will tell you that.
Spyder Xtra with a few upgrades/mods, but hardly 'similar'
Stock series 5, blue anno
Bullet drop, mid size
Pure Energy 68/4500
Eblade later maybe? At this point, I'm thinking it may not be an actual upgrade. The trigger is *that* nice.
Solidly made, very smooth action, easy to work on. Very high quality piece of workmanship.
Plain milling, regulator hose position is awkward. Not weaknesses though.
This review will be updated periodically the more I use it. Right now, after having my Spyder Xtra for a few weeks, this thing is butter. Smooth, very quiet, comfortable to shoot. I was the only one not chopping balls in the cold.
The marker is actually user-friendly. The velocity adjuster is easy to use. I can't believe how easy it is to clean...just pull the bolt, that's it. I haven't tinkered with the pneumatics yet...and don't plan to anytime soon.
The Series 5 now comes in blue, red, green or black if you buy them at a designated CCM retailer. Only the flat powdercoated black is offered from the factory (EDIT: now comes in anno'ed black). Also they ARE drilled for the 'eye' now if you get the '04 model. Delrin/aluminum bolt too. The feed neck is fantastic. The '04 markers come with a proprietary CCM barrel instead of the Progressive.
*One thing though, if you get one be sure to inspect the barrel carefully. Mine had some deep gouges inside making it horribly inaccurate. I sent it back to CCM for analysis, and it seems some debris got lodged in the polisher, causing the scratches. The new one they sent back doesn't have that and works good. My cup seal had to be replaced too, but I think some teflon tape got sucked into the internals somehow.
Update: I'm enjoying this marker more every time I use it. After 2 months I still haven't chopped a ball yet...using very cheap paint. In cold weather I purposely tried to chop by short stroking, couldn't do it. Very, very reliable. Also, my stock barrel came back in from CCM today, so I got to compare it to the CP 12" on there. The stock barrel is a little less accurate, but that's to be expected. I like the CCM barrel's looks better though. Beautiful milling and anno job is superb.
Update II: Several months later and STILL no problems. No chops, breakdowns or anything for that matter. I haven't touched the marker save for oiling the ram and ASA. Another thing that suprises me is the 'CCM' factor...as in, "oh, thats a Series 5...cool".
Can't beat the quality for $475. (EDIT: Now they are less than $400 and come in anno black instead of flat). I realized upgrading the Spyder to a reliable marker would cost me more in the long run than simply getting the CCM as-is. Now that they drill for the eye, it's an even better deal. One more thing I just found out, it comes with Hogue Colt 1911 grips. Nothing fancy, but they are well known for making very good rifle/handgun grips. They're very comfortable if simple.
What an amazing piece of machinery.

CCM Series 5
Stiffi Front / Freak Back
CCM Low-Rise Feedneck
As with every marker, you need to decide on what barrel other than stock you are going to put on it. The CCM drop is a great choice for this marker also.
The best low cost auto-cocking marker.
Not bling bling. Who cares!
This marker rocks. Pure and simple. It is not the prettiest out there, it is more of the stealth or sleeper style. The mechanical trigger is awesome. The internals are silky smooth. It works awesome with the included low-rise clamp feedneck with the Revvy. I put on a Halo and no-rise and had feeding problems... They come well protected in a foam lined plain box, pre-timed and ready to hook up your air lines, drop, tank, and hopper. It comes with the Smart Parts Progressive barrel in matching matte black. It will work fine until you can put something else on there. I also decided to add the Dye gauge so I could see what the reg was doing. It seems to keep up just fine even while you are ripping through the paint. The CCM IVG is really a great idea also. No more screwing around with the cocking rod to adjust your velocity!
If you want an awesome cocker, don't have to pick your hair or check your gold tooth in your reflection on it, and don't have to play with the price tag still on it to impress your friends, then this is the marker for you!

Chipley Custom Machine Series 5, Dye mini drop PMI 45cu in 5000 psi tank, Revy
Barrel of preference.
Every upgrade a player could want is already on this thing! The best mechanical trigger.
Zero Zip NADA
Some people think the body isn't pretty. WHO CARES This marker is all about performance. For the price it's a steal. This is the same company that makes the Works Autocockers. And this has the same parts. If you have any doubts check the reviews on Works. You couldn't ask for more for this price. If you really want a bright blue and green marker with poorer performance there's plenty out there that you can waste a grand on.
Pro or Rec players should pick this one up. It's a great marker at a great price. Use this as your primary marker and sell your pink electro whatchamabob
2k2 black magic custom/milling
dye swing trigger
shocktech bomb 3 way
orracle cocking bolt
kapp zone 2 drop forward on/off
stuff that looks good and new body!
Super smooth and accurate
This gun shoots very well but is also very ugly. But I am all about looks. This gun shoots super smooth i recomend it! but it is also very UG! chipley needs to put a new body on it because for ur money u should atleast get somethin worth looking at. or atleast put some color into it, maybe if it had color it would be similar to a 2k2 wgp cocker.also on it there is no drilling for an eye so that sucks!
GET a new BODY and make it look nice it is UG! but shoots well.
