So I’ve been playing with my T-Gripped Sniper set-up for a few weeks now and I must say it’s the best pump handle in my opinion. It’s small, lighter then the stock ones and in my opinion easier or at least has a smoother pump, while both standing still and on the run and gun. Now since, getting it I have been trying to find a hitman mod(pump plate) for it and just couldn’t find one. I started with Tonsixer (Don) and he replied he was in the proto type stages, but did not have any for sale yet. However last week I checked back with Don and he said he had a functioning proto type he would sell me if I was interested, so after a week of anxiously waiting for the mail here’s what I got to say about it.
After waiting a week, I checked the mail yesterday and to my surprise my hitman mod was here. The anno is spot on and there were no streaks or fading. Installation is super simple. Disassemble the marker, remove the T-Grip, unscrew 2 screws, line-up the hitman mod and reassemble using the screws Don provided and then it’s a matter of reassembling your gun. Although I do recommend putting a little oil on the guide rods before fully reassembling the marker especially if you use the spring and the reason I recommend this is so far the only issue I have with the hitman mod. According to Don the lower hole is too small and causes it to rub when you pump it, however once I put a little oil on it seems to work fine. Or if you’re really motivated you could Dremel the hole out a little (this issue is supposed to be fixed before they are released to the general public). I also found just through playing with it, this problem goes away on its own.
Now as for the performance factor, I found it very easy to use just like the other hitman mods. Although if you don’t add the oil, it rubs and makes for a slightly harder pump stroke and squeaks a little, but once this is done its super smooth. I found ether or right handed or left handed it shot very smooth and auto-triggered exceptionally well. One of the main reasons, I purchased it was so I could play in the snake in a more compact position and it definitely allows for this. Whether I’m crouched looking down the wire or if I switch hands and pop up and take a quick cross field shoot, this mod makes it so much easier to do both. Oh and if you have an A/T in addition to the pump handle, burning off the break is super easy and you can throw a lot more paint.
Overall I would say the T-Grip from CCM is a must have 10/10 upgrade to any pump marker and if you’re going to get the T-Grip, I would definitely hit up Don and get yourself a T-Grip Hitman Mod and I gave it a 10/10 especially after a day of play. Don will also custom anno any Hitman Mod to match your gun.
