I bought a red and black NO-PRO for my defiant 2 in October of 2007. I always liked the look and heard great things about the CCM feednecks and wanted to try one out for myself. I have had no problems with the thing yet and plan on getting a few more for my future markers.

Look - The No-Pro is very small and sleek looking especially when on the gun. It sits very low and when I put on my hopper with a cut feedneck on it the hopper sits lower than with any other feedneck. You can also customize the color of the feedneck itself as well as the tightening band to allow for even better matching to guns with multiple colors. Finally, CCM offers a customizable laser engraving for all their feednecks.

Durability/Reliability - This feedneck is very durable and reliable. I smack my hopper against things all the time and the threads have never stripped and the feedneck has never been ripped off the gun. In some of my Q-lock feednecks the band that tightens to hold the hopper in place has, over time, snapped in half. The CCM has had no such problem and I tighten and loosen it all the time. The tightening band screw is still like new and donít see any signs of it cross-threading and the threads donít show any wear. Next, the retention fingers are still springy and always return to their original position. Some locking feednecks have weak retention fingers that will loose their spring and when the band is completely open they donít return all the way to their original position. This leads to not being able to fit some hoppers, which used to fit in the feedneck, anymore. As for reliability, I never worry about the feedneck breaking off in a game because I have smashed it around many of times and it is still holding strong. In addition, the extremely secure hold of the feedneck is so reliable I have never had my hopper even spin slightly on my marker let alone pop off.

Performance - The CCM feedneck is made with a helical slot design that creates a multi-directional clamp on the loaders feedneck. This secure design allows for maximum hold without having to tighten the clamping band extremely hard. Also, as explained earlier, the no-pro enables the hopper to sit so low on the marker that it reduces the profile of your setup by quite a bit, which can be crucial in tight situations. The only thing that I can find slightly bad with this feedneck is that it has to be tightened with an allen key rather than a twist knob or lever lock like some of the other new feednecks on the market. This adds the need for tools, extra time for installation of the hopper, but it is so little and carrying around an allen key that it doesnít make a difference.

Price - I think this feedneck is perfectly priced. CCM's superior craftsmanship along with the reliability, performance, and quality of the feedneck makes it worth the price. In addition this price provides you with a lifetime warranty. If you ever break your feedneck they will replace it absolutely free. But, their products are so well made that the user will never need that warranty. CCM provides great tech support to make sure you buy the right one for your marker and style, as well as great customer service and extremely fast shipping.

I would recommend this feedneck to anyone who is looking for customizability, performance, and reliability in their feedneck, along with great support from the product company. My review of this product is completely unbiased and I hope it is helpful and informative to all readers!

Ive had multiple CCM feednecks in my time and most all of them have come on guns Ive traded for. All of them have always worked well and not a single one has ever broke or let me down. The No Pro on my old PM5 was far too low for my tastes but even it could hold my loader without any issues. The multiple CCM No Rises on my Vikings and Matrices have always proved to be of excellent quality and are the perfect height. The only real issue is that If you clamp the feedneck too tight without a loader in place the feedneck prongs may bend permanently. This can cause some headaches and affect the looks of the feedneck. Otherwise, excellent feednecks!

I have the Intimidator/STO NoPro feedneck. It put the bottom lip of the hopper feedneck as close to the gun as possible. If you have a hopper with a really short feedneck, there might be a gap. My halo and rotor fit pretty well. The feedneck is also pretty easy to disassemble if you really need to clean under there.

This isn't a lever clamping feedneck, you simply tighten down a screw with tightens the collar at the top. There are helical cuts in the feedneck that give a nice tight grip on your hopper.
