I have been wanting a bamboo stick feed, but that seems like it would be a good match for your theme.

If I find a Gilligan's island game, I'll cover a whole marker in bamboo.

I'm imagining:
A picture of the entire marker in a matching red and Hibiscus to that shirt of yours. Same pose as the first pic. Shiiiznizle, that's worthy of a permanent banner change!!! At least displayed as the background picture on the Facebook page.

Any chance you'd make a hitman mod that would fit on CCM handles?

The plastic doesn't have the strength to make a reliable hitman mod.

One of the reasons I chose the CCM kit is that it includes a metal base that I can mount the plastic pump handle on.

If I wanted a hitman mod, I would probably use the approach taken on the Kaos Pump and drill a hole in the bottom then thread in a rod. If I wanted something truly sexy, I would go to a machinist and have a new mounting plate fabricated using the current one as a template.

Have you considered pulling a mold off of the original.? You could make resin copies or wax to have cast in aluminum.

That would be good for mass production.
I'm willing to bet there's more than a few people with CCM kits that would pay a few dollars for a hitman mod.

This is something to consider. Too bad I sold the marker and don't have any using the CCM pump kit at the moment.
