Incredibly light and durable, ported for quietness and accuracy. The barrel is precision crafted from Carbon Fiber. Comes with 4 aluminum spacers to fit 4 of the most popular sizes (.683, .685, .687, .689) The carbon is supplied by the manufacturers of the "ST!FF!", and then bonded to "high grade" aluminum components.
The Chipley Custom Machine Carbon Graphite Barrel System is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.

OMG it is LIGHT

So light you don't think it's sturdy or you may break it.
I like the barrels look and shape. I wish it would come in different colors. My shots are tight and I use an older cocker. I get some great range and MAN IT IS QUIET!!!! I like the porting but it may be to hard to clean. I haven't chopped yet. LOL
This is a must. My marker is a heavier one so I need the lighter parts to compensate for the body. When you first get it you tend to be very careful with it due to it being so light. It does the job every-bit as good as a boomstick with a fraction of the weight.

Extremely Lightweight, durable structurally.

This is my all-time favorite barrel on my Phantom. I've used a J&J ceramic, the stock barrel, and Freak insert barrels, but this one takes the cake. No matter what I try out on my Phantom, this one goes back on for the majority of the day. Here's why.
Durable: The Carbon composite is very strong, this barrel can be banged around without cracking. However, pump wear shows up very fast on the aluminum parts of the CCM barrel, while the stock CCI barrel shows no wear at all (yet).
Quiet: This is the quietest barrel I have used on my Phantom. Quieter barrels are out there, but out of what's listed above, this one's the best.
Consistant: This is one of the most consistant shot-to-shot, barrels I have used. I prefer it over the stock barrel, even though the majority of Phantom owners disagree.
Looks Great: Ok, I'll admit it. I'm a Carbon Fiber freak. I like the material, and I'm happy to own a barrel that looks this good, and performs this well.
Cleans Easily: Using a rubber squeegee, the barrel cleans right out. It will also clean out a little bit by firing a few rounds through it. Not as well as the J&J Ceramic, but if you happen to have a ball break, your shot consistancy won't disappear. A word of warning, though--as the manufacturer says, use only rubber squeegees on this barrel, not the 'fuzzy' type. The fuzzy type tends to trap dirt, and this can ruin the interior finish of the barrel.
I'm only giving this a 9 because of the problems with pump wear. Users without a pump rubbing the annodizing should have no problem, but CCM should have been more careful with the annodizing when releasing a Phantom-threaded version.

CCI Phantom VSC w/gauged adapter, L-stock, ADCO Hot Shot Red Dot Sight, 3.5 oz CO2,
I use Anarchy but because of the sizers, you can use any paint.
Shoots flat and accurate. Quiet. Self-cleaning. Light. Looks trick. Uses any paint.
Aluminum at the pump handle scuffs easily.
I had my doubts because the control bore is only about 1" long. I had heard that this barrel was a glorified, overpriced set of detent rings. Everybody was saying you needed 6" at least of control bore. All of these worries were laid to rest after taking the first shot with this barrel. This barrel shot so much flatter and straighter than the stock CCI barrel that I had to adjust my elevation on my red dot by a large amount. I was in disbelief. At 50 ft. it was shooting 2ft over my red dot when I had the sight adjusted for my phantom barrel, and I had had this phantom barrel for about 3 years with the sight adjusted at the same place and shot all kinds of paint and got what I thought was good accuracy. I had no idea what I had been missing.
Playing in a game with this barrel was a revelation. I gogged two people with my off-hand in the first game. A couple of games later, we played 4 on 4 and I eliminated the entire opposing team by myself. I was making shots on body parts like just a knee sticking out or a foot. I was one-balling people from all the way across the field. I was doing this all day, which I usually don't do. This barrel increased my accuracy to another level.
Once, I got hit in the barrel. I didn't remember to try the self-cleaning properties, but one swipe with a straight shot squeeguee (be sure to only use the rubber end) and it was clean as a whistle, no notches at the muzzle like the stock barrel for paint to get stuck in.
The control bore was plenty long enough. I cannot think of how making it longer would have helped because accuracy was such as I have never seen.
This barrel is much quieter than the stock barrel, which is good because I was shooting at people who had no idea where the shots were coming from.
This barrel is a bit expensive, but worth every penny for the increase in range and accuracy.
I don't know why the CCM barrel shoots so much flatter than my CCI stock barrel. It was ridiculously flatter. I had to adjust my sight's elevation a huge amount to almost 0 elevation in order to get the balls hitting on the dot whereas with the CCI barrel I had the elevation to the maximum. I cannot explain this. I don't know how they did it. It was almost like some sort of voodoo. This was one of those rare experiences where the product completely outperformed all expectations or hopes I could have had for it. I am still in a bit of shock, really.

Cleaning some what
a little wide for a cocker at the base
backs somewhat short
i recieved this for christmas and have used it for two days of play. i have shot xball bronze, midnight, and pmi premiums and what ever the nps named white box stuff is.these paints did ok through it (except the low grade). i found that instead of going with the bore that the paint is just tight enough to keep from falling out it is better to go to the bore that the paint is some what tight in.
if the paint is not round (like x ball how it is shaped like (|) as apposed to a circle, if that makes sence) then you get more velecioty flux. also i have had some roll throughs with this using the 681 sizer (yes it is .681inches i measured it with a caliper) so hence the reason i say use high quality consistant paint.
when i recieved the kit in the mail i picked up the box and said "man they sent me the wrong thing" after i opened it i realized it was just insanely light.
it is a pretty quiet barrel, from about 20 feet off you dont hear the shot much louder than my black block cycling (and no my block isnt even hitting the body).
well all i can say is you cant use swabs like every other CF kit around so it makes it some what hard. my friend gave me the idea of using a rag of some type that doesnt rip appart to swab the barrel out (from what i understand this will not hurt the barrel but dont quote me). i am using a cheap rubber squeegie with a medical cloth that is used for absorbing blood during operations and it seemed to work ok.
the barrel is a little wide at the base for a cocker, the ano has striped off because it rubs against my gun when it is being screwed in. it just has a thin line of no ano and no damage to the gun so it doesnt matter to me.
and the last thing are the backs
the backs are a great design. they have flats to help unscrew the back from the tip if they get stuck and they have holes drilled in where the tip screws in incase the tip comes off seperately from the back (which i doubt can happen if u put them togeather the whole way.
it would be nice if the backs were an inch or 2 longer but its not to big of a deal if the paint is good quality.
Its a good product from a good company, other than the back length and the ano its perfect. im going to say 8 because they have a few things they can improve on but other than that it is a nice kit.
it's my first barrel kit, but I've tested the switch, freak, race, and the CP
2k2 right feed wgp autocokcer, with the Nexus upgrade kit, Jackhammer 2 reg, Torpedo inline reg, shocktech front block, 2k5 race front soloniod, race frame baby. CCM barrekl kit and the 5 pod Q-loader set up.
CCi VSC phantom bone stock
PT extreme pistol
B2k, CP inline reg
and a F-series Bone Brake Bushmaster
anything draxus, or what ever you want, it's a barrel kit
Carbon fiber, light, strong, gives a touch of class
Sized portion of the barrel kit could be longer, but nothing to critical
this barrel kit is a carbon copy of the switch, it works the same way and is about the same price, I believe that stiffi makes the carbon fiber for CCM and CCM makes the metal for stiffi. So you can see how the two products are going to similar, if you have shot the switch then you have shot the CCM. The CCM is maybe an ounce heavier, but it's a more solid product. and if your that concered about the weight then by all means go with the other one.
CCM Vs. Switch
-better customer service
-not too many people know about it
-not to many people know about it
it's a more durible clone
CCM Vs. Freak
-not made by smart parts
-clears shots better
-inserts aren'y as long
-costs more....alot more
CCM Vs. Race
-better inserts (without the full kit)
-inserts aren't as long
-counter treaded, so it screws in and out much better than CCM
I am still compairing the CP so I'll update in a few
CCM Vs. CP
-little better shot grouping
-resales are higher
-easier to find
-similar preformane at less cost to you
-this kit also makes your gu look sexy
As of this point in time, I would suggest getting this kit to anyone, it's pretty solid and gives your marker a more sexy look, but I give it a 9 because nothing is perfect

WGP Mini Orry, Macdev Legion Air, Tickler lpr, Black Magic Inline reg, Orracle 3-way, Evo ll
Accuracy, made of carbon fibre, quiet, light, WARRANTY
Can be scratched sort of easy
Only cocker threaded
Well when my cousin got it I think it looked pretty good and when he first got it he had a problem with it on his cockers front block, but after he lubed it it worked ok. He also had a small problem with one of the sizers, but he also got it to work. Its accurate, quiet, and light... what more could u want??
The barrel is good, accurate, light, and made of carbon fibre!!!
Good barrel but a little expensive and the sizers arent to my liking!!
Good barrel and it gets a 10!

When i first got this barrel i was in love, it is beautiful. Then i played my first game with it my friends thought i had an unfair advantage it was so accurate, wow. It also has a really cool sound to it if you are shooting it or near it it sounds really cool, but thirty feet away or more and all you here is the gun cycling and the balls flying, very cool, best barrel ever.
Definitly worth every penny, looks,quality, accuracy, and sound. best barrel ever. Not just a 10 an 11

2003 E2-orracle turled with turtle valve, freeflow ram with qev & mufflers, AKA 2 liter and SCM regulators,14" ccm carbon fiber, Halo B, Mac Dev 68/4500.
Any paintball will work because its a kit. I like marbs, evil and premium.
Light, tool flats on sizers, accurate, quiet.
It is so light the balance of your gun will shift back slightly.
This barrel is amazing, its just as accurate as the freak or the pipe with a lot less noise and it weighs next to nothing. I was skeptical of the short length of the sizers, thinking that the ball needs the 6 inch length of other kits, but I am just as consistent over the chrono and just as accurate across field so I guess it really doesn't make any difference after all. I bought this kit over the stiffi switch only because I like the bore selection of the sizers better (.681,.684,.687,.690,.693) than what comes with the switch.
If you are looking for a light, quiet and very accurate barrel, then buy this one. It is well worth the price.
Hammerhead, Freak System, Stiffi Switch, and Dye Ultralite/Boomstick
Musachi Board (M3)
Halo B Rip Drive
X-ball, Evil, PMI, Proto
Accuracy, Tighter Ball Grouping, Quieter, Much Lighter, Less Sensitive to Paint Quality
Price tag (around $200.00); however, it's worth the money!
The CCM barrel system is one of the lightets and most quiet barrels that I have ever tested. They build it with a slightly smaller diameter for the ports in order to keep just the right amount of compression. True porting and precision makes it unbeatable both in accuracy and sound displacement. The kit includes sizers .681 through .693 bored to fit all of the most popular paintballs. Comapred to the Stiffi Switch, I found the CCM quieter but only by very little.
I invite you to test this barrel against the current line of competitors and discover for yourself why i believe this barrel will be the last one you'll buy.
