CCM Sneak Peak
Recently I was allowed a sneak peak at CCM's newest idea. Bill sent me a message asking if I wanted to be a prototype tester, and I happily obliged. The product is an updated version of the Karni's ICS (internal cocking system). A very cool concept in and of itself. The need for a clunky cocking rod and backblock combo is replaced by a internal cocking rod. This resolves the need for both an external cocking rod and beavertail on a gun. Aesthetically it creates smoother lines, and makes for an overall better look to any gun.
The old ICS from a Karni was a pain to remove. CCM solved this problem by adding a set screw in the backblock to create easy-access to the internals. The great thing about this particular system, is it can be mounted on any autococker as an aftermarket part. The internals can be replaced with the ICS 'kit' and you're ready to rock in a matter of minutes. The internals themselves are almost identical to that of a stock autococker, save for the changes to the hammer and backblock that CCM made... I'll let the pictures do the talking.
Unfortunately my photography skills are somewhat sub-par, but... As you can see, there are some significant changes to the hammer and back-block. The cocking rod is now able to sink back into the hammer but is still attached to the back-block. This allows for flawless shooting (and auto-triggering) without the need for a external cocking rod. I've shot around 1000 rounds through it, and it's kept up with me. I first thought that the AT'ing function might be diminished due to this new system, but it works just like a regular cocking rod and back-block combo. CCM has put out another excellent product. I'm very pleased with the results of testing, and would recommend this product to anyone.
