PBC takes a look at the all new CCM Dynasty Shocker Frame
review by Taylor Medlock
The new CCM Dynasty Shocker RIP Frame embodies a revolution in electronic trigger system. Developed in conjunction with members of the Philadelphia Americans NXL Team, and Team Dynasty, the CCM Dynasty Shocker RIP Frame is the lightest aftermarket Shocker frame on the market, and the only Shocker frame to provide a full length Snatch grip. The RIP frame also utilizes the all new CCM trigger carriage (Patent
pending) which enables all adjustments to the trigger with the RIP frame on or off the gun, and further enables all adjustments without disassembly. The trigger switch actuator rotates for full adjustment from the top to bottom of the trigger switch lever for regular or inverted trigger switches.
CCM has taken the SFT shockers to the limit with their new trigger frame made for Dynasty. It's finally time to drop the stock frame and pick up one of these bad boys.
|Most ergononic frame available|
The over all look of the frame isnít too different from the stock frame. The first thing you will notice is it's built in snatch grip and extended trigger guard. The trigger looks longer and wider than the normal trigger without the big groove in it. On the right side of the frame you will notice the CCM logo on the trigger stop plate. On the left side of the frame you will notice that there are three allen screws on the frame. The two small allen screws are to take off the trigger plate to adjust your trigger pull and forward trigger stop, the micro switch activation point, and the magnet.
|Inside the heart of the frame|
The heart of the CCM Dynasty Shocker RIP Framee is the adjustablity of the trigger. There are four set screw adjustments, one for the pull, one for the forward travel, one for the magnet, and a rotating disc that houses a set screw to allow you to further adjust the interface of the micro-switch and the trigger. The disc rotates to the full range of the micro-switch so that you can totally adjust the feel of the trigger on the micro-switch. Just for the fun of it, I took a whole three hours to adjust, try, adjust, try, and adjust, and try again. The rotating disc is just down right crazy to further adjust the trigger to your liking.

The frame is not a 90 degree nor a 45 degree frame. It is more like a 75 degree frame. The ergonomics of this angle truly feels like the true angle a marker should be when the setup is long. To put it simply, it just feels right and I truly feel that the unique angle of the trigger frame aides in shooting. This is the only trigger frame for the Shocker to have a built in snatch grip.
|Circuit board screws|
The trigger plate is very wide, almost a quarter on an inch wide. This also gave my fingers a better feedback and enabled me to shoot the Shocker smoother and faster. To remove and change out the circuit board is a breeze with this frame due to the allen screws instead of the pins on the stock frame.
The trigger's performance exceeds any frame for the Shocker up to this point. It's smooth pull and release is a new one compared to the old metal on metal feel. The roller bearing trigger makes the pull and release a lot less stressful because of the triggers light weight it rolls through so smoothly like a hot knife through butter. The trigger plate easily comes off after removing the two allen screws to adjust the trigger. The trigger can easily be set to remove bounce or can be adjusted short enough to make the Shocker go full auto from mechanical bounce. The ergonomics of the trigger with the frame makes the Shocker even easier to let loose a long fast stream of paint. The CCM Dynasty Shocker RIP Frame is all out legally fast without bounce.
