Green Series 6a Chipley pump
Direct from CCM - Purchased December 2008
During the Thanksgiving break of 2008, as I sat browsing
McarterBrown forums, I found a post from CCM saying they were
making 5 of the series 6A pumps in Green. They had not made
green guns in several years and had recently moved anodizing
to a new shop. The new shop claimed they made a good green
color and a test run was done.
image is taken from CCM. When they released pictures of what
was available back in November 2008. You can't tell from the
above picture, but mine has the 45 handgrips which are a bit
thicker and use a larger rubber base, as compared to the 86
degree grips in the factory image. I just like this picture
as it shows exactly what came with the gun - barrel and matching
Talking to Melissa, she said the demand was limited in prior
years, as CCM the autococker and E-cocker company was focused
on securing a place in the tournament scene, where green markers
just did not fit in as much as the bright blues and reds.
Now that CCM is back to focusing on pump and woods play, green
is the next big thing.
For those of you who don't see the difference - the prior
Series 6 in blue that I had acquired has different milling
at the front of the gun. The ASA on the 6A is all one piece.
The regulator screws right into the gun, as compared to the
plain 6 where there is a piece that connects the regulator
to the main body.
First use at Wayne's World 2008, where Gary Baum at Paintballphotography.com
got the above picture. MY only picture from the event and
it appears that is completely focused on the gun - the way
it should be. I figured I needed to shoot about 2000 rounds
thru the gun to break it in. I broke it out at about 10 am
Sunday and played until one and got my 2000 rounds out of
Next use was at Adventure Beach in February '09. I shot about
1800 round thru it in the day and it was damn consistant.
Velocity never really changed from ball to ball over the chrono.
Then came night play. Even adjusting the regulator, I still
could not get the thing to change much. I guess it is set
at 280 and done.
