There is no better purchase in paintball than a CCM marker.
I have a couple T2s and think they are great; well designed, flawlessly executed, made of great materials, American made, great customer service, easy to service and maintain.
How does that translate on the field? Super light weight, great balance, smooth pump stroke, great shot to shot consistency, very efficient, very reliable and a great mechanical feel that is a joy to operate.
As if this was not enough, the resale value is outstanding; purchase a DYE DM 12 a few months ago for $1300, a year later used $600, purchase a CCM T2 last year for $700, sell it this year for $600...That’s value!
As for the frame style, I prefer the slim 45 with slim grip panels. I found the 86* feels good as well, maybe better if you plan on using a short tight tank.
If you can afford a CCM T2, buy one! It will be your best paintball purchase.
