CCM is top notch. Great pump kits. Great frames.

I'm a huge fan of Checkit myself, I loveee there deluxe pump kits.

Comparable to the CCM deluxe kit, but the handle doesn't have that aluminum plate scratch and resistance that CCM has.

And it just fits great in your hand. ( that's what she said )

i did not like the SM1 dual arm pump kit. a lot of slop and the set screws eventually shake loose if you don't loctite them. throw in a really skinny pump handle on top and it was pretty much ruined for me. i'm using a basic ccm kit now and it's worlds better, imo.

That's honestly one of the first times i've ever heard someone say bad things about SM1... Most of the time there like " Omg they rock!, best kit ever "

That's good to know, I have a buddy who's looking into them.

That's harsh man! I've had to polish some of their parts before they were amazingly smooth.

Like everyone describes.

I have a friend that owns an SM1. I have had to work on it quite a bit.. I wouldn't say that I wouldnt ever use one but I have see the screws going up through the pump handle loosen numerous times and the handle completely slide off the guide rods...That is kind of a game breaker if your in a match lol.. Also the hammer sear lug tends to back out quite often and the gun won't cock... I fixed that with some loctite but it was a problem none the less.. Great products, very fortunate to have such a wide variety to choose from.. But I prefer CCM... Been shooting their stuff 5+ years and if anything ever does get worn out they replace it. Personally I believe their customer service and products are unmatched. Our team shoots CCM's exclusively.. It's our belief that they are the best.

That is a very good argument though, I like to play pump mostly recreational, but have also stepped into tournaments, knowing what I do now, I would never throw a SM1 kit on my marker.

I like Checkit, as i've stated because I often have to polish CCM parts to make them as smooth as people say.

I have used Check It and they are a great company. I had to work on their pump kits to get them to work smoothly on my sniper. I put on a CCM pump kit and it worked smoother. Not saying that CIP is not good, I just prefer CCM.

I am willing to spend the extra cash for CCM at this point.

Honestly, I would't hesitate to purchase from any of them. I buy things based on that specific item's reviews, ratings, and price, not just from the company it comes from.

checkit pump kits are just clones of ccm kits, with a different handle...

I have a SM1 marker w/ duel stainless rods & a KAPP reflex with a CCM deluxe kit.

I like the fit and feel of the SM1 better (yeah I said it- hate on CCM nuthuggers). It took a lot more work to get it to my liking, but the end result is phenomenal. Absolutely zero play and nice and crisp pump stroke. Out of the box though (or if you're not into DIY improvements) I'd go with CCM. My current build will probably get a CCM kit, just cause its the easy way out.

CCM's customer service is also second to none. I believe Luis (Sanchez) really does care, but just doesn't have the time/manpower to please us like CCM does.

A little DIY goes a long way though man, I'd much rather have a kit that needs a little DIY outside the box then have one and think it needs nothing. That's truly a great thing to make it perfect for your own style.

I've run Sanchez, CCM, and WGP.

With my Sanchez kit, it took a good bit to get it set the way I want. I had aluminum pump arms as well and wasn't very happy with them. With some tweaking, you can have a short pump stroke. I wasn't able to eliminate all of the side to side play of the dual arms though and rubbed the arms on the body a good bit. I also had the set screws wiggle loose a couple times. The build of the handle was good, nice and solid. The anodizing was a nice deep red. It's a decent kit for the money. I haven't used their AT kit though.

I've used a few CCM kits. They are great drop in and go kits. The tolerances are good. There was no wiggle on my deluxe kits and no binding of the The T-handle is great. The frames are awesome. The thin 45 and 85s are sweet. AT works well. Just a great simple drop kit overall.

WGP kits are simple single guide arm budget kits. They work good, but have a good bit of play.

I want to see people's experiences with GAT kits and the AT kits in particular.
