Thank you everybody. I found this whole thread very useful, and I like the way it was boiled down by Dr. PhunkyPants:

I would add:
3. Chilax and keep enjoying my phantom setup. I have never shot a CCM, and I don't know what I am missing.
I am going to put a CCM on my wish list because it seems really hard to judge the relative quality of different custom CCMed sniper setups.
