I've never owned a Sniper, but the biggest design flaw I remember is the hammer slot being too short. The gun cocks before the bolt clears the breech. I would assume the CCM kit fixes that.

This is how Canadian rec fields operate.

Paint prices are high, entry costs are low.

Less paint is shot, so overall costs to the player are about the same.
