We are just a paintball field, not the pump kit company.
I guess I'll put the S6 back up for sale since it definitely did not live up to my expectations of what a top of the line pump should be. (not that it was bad by any stretch of the imagination) It just wasnt as great as I thought it would be.
I actually didn't put much time or money into my snipers, basic knowledge would eliminate most of the trial and error.

Red - Black
Here is what I do to pimp my ride.
In no order:
Make sure both pump guides are straight and not binding.
I use a bench polisher and jewlers rouge to polish the pump guide rods, hammer, cocking rod, sear, and lug.
Lightly sand the bolt with 1000 grit wet dri and get rid of any playing scratches.
Use Tri flow on both pump guide rods, bolt, hammer, and cocking rod.
I take the trigger out now and again and make sure all of that area is clean.
If this does not make this marker shoot smoother - and you think it is STILL just like one of your snipers - you need to tech Snipers for a living.
Also - what would you like to sell it for? I could always use another killing machine...

I love my S6. Point, Shoot, Kill.
A friend of mine borrowed my S6 for a few games. He regularly plays with a very nice ccm'd hybrid pump. He came back shaking his head and smiling. "I don't know what it is or how it is different, but it is. It does everything my pump does, but it seems easier. I don't know how it's possible but it is."
I love my out of the box CCM S6. So smooth, I can't imagine TF's method being smoother, but I'd be inclined to believe him.

I can't see spending $500 on an S6 and having to do any of that though, you know? It would be like buying a brand new SL94 from planet eclipse and the first thing I do to make it shoot better is totally rebuild it and polish moving parts and sand the bolt, just wouldn't make sense to me.
Maybe I just had really high hopes for it and it didn't live up to my expectations.
As for selling it, you wouldn't pay what I want for it, and you can definitely get a better deal than I would give you from CCM. I have an offer for $570 locally, which is what I plan on going with.

I don't think anyone has ever said it was anything special. It is just a VERY nice sniper style pump that comes from a great company ready to shoot.
If you don't think it is "all that" then I don't see any reason to try and convince you it is.
If the cost is your issue, then it isn't a gun for you. No one has ever claimed that you will pick it up and instantly renounce all other paintguns.
There is a level of fit and finish, as well as an aspect of buying from a small company with great support, that goes along with CCM guns. Just as there is with most guns from similar shops and or manufacturer's.
I know I am an older player, but $500-$600 for a really, really nice pump that is set and ready to go with all the fittings and such right out of the box, still seems like a good deal to me.
I have spent soooo much more on so many guns in the past that actually were crap, that spending that amount just seems middle of the road to me.
In the end, buy and use what you like. Or, like many of us here, just try to buy them all.
I have become one of the "Old Paintball Guys" at my field. Not sure if I am sad or proud.

Thank you for taking the time to review your findings. I am very sorry that your first experience with the a CCM product was not satisfactory. The best I could conclude would be the fact that you purchased it used. If there is anything at all that we, CCM can do to assist you please don't hesitate to contact us.
