i have only used this gun, nothing comes close any way.
Phantom right gravity feed, 30mm red dot, air-through stock, 14 inch barrel, 45 frame w/ dye sticky 3 grips (black), 5 in sight rail
Ball detent helps out
45 frame (preference)
Makes you a more efficient/accurate player
Prefers large bore paint
No ball detent
Not everyone like the pump play style
I will try to be as unbiased about the gun as possible to give anyone interested in buying a phantom an accurate assesment of its performance.
ACCURACY- The good news. the phantom definiatly lives up to its reputation. IF YOU USE HIGH QUALITY PAINT. The phantom barrel i~ .691 bore and prefers larger bore paint. I have fount through my 50,000 some odd rounds that i have shot through my gun, marbalizers shot amazing. Through no extention of the truth, you can honestly place ball on top of ball at 70 feet. This statement is in no way exagerated. You could literaly hit a quarter with the gun. For this reason, i keep my red dot zeroed at 70 feet. With experience, compensation for ball drop becomes second nature, and utilization of the guns entire range comes into play.
The bad news. When you use crappy paint, the gun will be your worst enemy. Big ball work well, as do super swirls, but i have found that once you break paint in the stock barrel you tend to continue to due so until you clean the barrel. In conclusion, your going to be shooting less so compensate and lay down some extra cash for high qaulity paint.
More to come... in progress.
Get this gun it is well worth the price and will make you a smarter, more focused player. The gun will force you to make your shots count and after making some awesome hits you will realize that everything else is junk compared to the mighty Phantom.
10 out of 10
