I had a cp asa and a aka 2 liter on my CCM for a reason, bc the stock ones suck.
Why are you not holding the pump handle when you're playing with a pump marker?
The sniper does that because it's sprung harder, the springs are pushing forward harder. I actually like even lighter return springs in my CCM's instead of CCM's already light return springs.
How you can you say it's better balanced? You have the option of 3 types of frames when you order from CCM.
Of course it's more efficient, once again it's lighter sprung so the dwell will be longer in a CCM. This leads to more air used in every shot. But, you're playing pump and my back guys use CCM's and have no trouble shooting even 5 pods and a hopper per game.
I beg to differ with the consistency. I've seen Sal's S6.5 shoot 4 shoots in a row, the same number over a chrono.
I'll agree with you about the on/off's needing some improvement. But the reg is just fine consistency wise. It's the fitting placement and the "bleed hole" in the bottom that allows debris in there that I have a problem with.
Last but not least, people need to get off their high horses with every AKA reg working flawlessly throughout the whole reg's life. I've seen a hyper 2, bob long torpedo and WGP Ergo reg outperform a sidewinder in a flow test I've done with a pressure tester. If you would like to know details about how I did it (I'm sure Castro already knows) then PM me.
