Review: I was getting sick and tired of buying 1000 rounds a day, so I tried to conserve paint, and it just didnt work, so I bought a pump. But I didnt buy just a pump, I bouhgt a stock class Phantom. Although people say no gun is more accurate than another, I believe that to be untrue. The Phantom envelopes the paintball in a pocket of air that actually reduced those wild wingers. On top of that, the Phantom has an amazing stock barrel, the only reason you need another one is for different bore sizes. The pump stroke is very smooth once you get it broken in (about 1000 shots). I now go through about 100-200 rounds a day, and 4-5 12 grams. The efficiency on this gun is great too, I get about 45 good shots from one 12 gram.

This gun is amazingly light and compact, it makes me feel like I can move up anytime I want, but thats not true, I wieght 240lb and am 6ft tall, big guy. But I have yet to get hit in the gun. Although many people snicker and laugh at the fact that your using a pump, by the end of the day, they have usually changed their mind, especially when you bunker them, thats fun. Not to mention that this is one of the best looking guns that I have ever seen, the anno is amazing with the acid wash.

The only weakness that I can think of is that this gun has a steep learning curve to it. You forget that you have to pump before every shot, you loose count of your paintballs, and then run out, or you freak out about the fact that you have to change your co2 on the field.
Conclusion: Amazing gun, I swear by it, never had a problem with it besides a bad seal that needed replacing or some simple oiling.
