drilled for eyes, ummmm its a prostock body, no pesky eye holes
ASA, personal preference, and not really noticed
Amazing bottom tube internals, yep sold seperatly
lighter, by a few onces at most, not really noticable while playing
Customer service and warranty, CCM parts are covered regardless of the body you put them on
So your claim of a new ccm marker is better than anything else is based on a rubber detent thats not really needed and a couple of onces of weight? The only thing that put this build over the cost of a new S6 was the full barrel kit, well that and the cost of the marker when new
And while we are on service, My new T2 shipped straight from CCM came without an IVG in it, they did ship one out to me ASAP, but that kinda throws a shadow on the assembled, adjusted and tested claim.
Let me clarify my statement.... If you started with a stock superstock/prostock you got ripped off. Let me crunch some numbers. I'm using just some price ranges here to bare with me
Stock Superstock - $135-$200 (estimate)
CCM Pump kit with trigger frame and AT - $210
CCM Clamping feedneck - $25
CCM Reg - $70
CCM Lower Tube kit - $66
CCM On/off - $38
CCM Micro rail - $24
Now that is all the parts that you have put on your marker. You may have already own some of these but for a person to re-make your gun they would need to order these parts. Assuming the person called CCM directly or a CCM dealer (allowing them to have the warranty). Also bare in mind that they will be using the stock barrel, stock WGP detent (nothing wrong with it, but alot of fields don't have them) and stock bolt and not having a valve tool to insert their new CCM goodness. To change all those parts would cost even more but I am not going into that.
So for the average buyer, purchasing the stock Prostock/Superstock for $135 (estimate) dollars plus the $433 dollars it would take to purchase the same parts that you have ( minus the barrel ) you are looking at around $568. Which is MORE
than a brand new S6.
Don't forget that a S6 is lighter, dual detents (spyder detents are EVERYWHERE) , lightweight delrin bolt, delrin pull pin, tools, barrel cover and comes with a damn decent barrel that you can choose the insert size when you order. Also, you can choose what color you want the marker to come in from the factory. What it you wanted your prostock to match completely? Then you would have to tack on annodizing costs to your project.
Now everything on that list is compared to your marker, which is overpriced. Not by much, but it is. Now that body style might be more for your liking, and as long as you were willing to pay the difference to have the body you wanted, then go ahead.
Ounces are still ounces. Common used parts are better than a dying breed. And ready out the box is King.
I'll stick with CCM.
I myself did a Prostock project. Shot great but nothing compared to my CCM guns.
