Why on earth?
Maybe someone can enlighten me...
Why on earth does it seem the Series 5 and SS-25 are not only the least
desirable from CCM but they are also sold for the least amount?
It seems J2's and some J2Ls fetch the most, even more than works.
Why is this? I love my Series 5 so much, besides being drilled I dont see what
makes it so much lesser than a J2? Both dis-continued full bodied CCM pumps...
The sick milling cant jack up the price that much, can it?

Not sure bro... I think the J2L was a more limited run than the S5 and the SS-25 but I could be wrong... Don't think there are more than a couple hundred out there... mine's #192. All I know is the SS-25 was the gun that got me interested in CCM! And yet I've still never owned one

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
Some don't care for the slabside of the S5 and that is unfortunate.
I think in production numbers, doesn't it go something like works, j2l, ss-25, s5, and whatever for the current productions?
Also, you have to keep in mind that values and selling prices for CCMs are all over the place. Some have great resale and some just sit forever at crazy prices.

Some people love the halfblocks and lighter weight of the s6 and 6.5/t2. I do own a s6.5. But i also own 2 s5 pumps, 1 mech and 1 electro (not drilled) s5. I love the S5. tried and true design that has never left me stranded.. Mud, rain or shine. It works.

Think of it this way - Look at a Mag - with its two tubes and a grip look. And then look at a Karta body mag.
One will be worth MUCH more than the other - but mostly they will shoot the same.
In an age of 3, 4, and 5 axis milling - looks become more important.

the s5/ss-25 were "budget" ccm's, they were cheaper brand new than the J2's/s6's.

and the "if u look gud u shoot gud" idea seems to help to circulate the fancier bodies as well.

I see ss-25's going for a pretty good money still. I was talking to someone who wanted 350 for theirs and it needed an asa. Ive picked up a near mint s6 for 375. Most s5's that come up for sale look like they were thrown together with leftover parts. Most near stock ones in good condition will still fetch around 350+.
Im not sure why people ask so much for J2L's, Id guess because they have all the newer features but are discontinued.
Most people seem to ask more for 6.5's than they cost new and t2 prices are all over the place.
