Maybe a dumb question: but why would anyone (other than Inception fan-boys) ever buy this pump at $800 over a CCM at $600?

Why buy a Carter over a Phantom?
Why buy an Automag over a Tippmann?
Why buy craft beer over Miller Lite?

Personal preference?

People will because they'll like the look. I'd pass on this one because I don't care for the windows in the top tube, but I wouldn't flinch at building the same gun with a FLE body.

Why oh why are people building cockers like this? Why put a mini front block on a full-sized cocker? I know they're going for the whole stretched out feel that's popular these days, and I'll go along with that, but instead of throwing the reg further forward, pull the trigger frame back. It would help the balance of the gun so much more.

probably because it is easier to build. The way they are doing it, they just have a longer blank/ or don't cut off as much on the front. If you moved grip frame back you would need different length bolt, rearranged internals etc.

I like the reg spacing increase, personally. Feels good in the hands and keeps weight distribution near identical to the familiar old 'cockers. Moving trigger frame back instead would make gun very front heavy.
