Review: I ordered my VSC from Wevopaintball.com a little while ago. When I got it, I grabbed some 12 grams and fired some rounds in my backyard. I was IMPRESSED. There are 4 trees in my backyard, all about 125 feet away, and about 6-8" in diameter. If you look carefully you can see paint splats all around the trees, and a few on them, from my EVO and Freak combo. I loaded one round, looked down the site rail and let loose. THWAP! Dead center in the middle of the tree, about 6 feet up from the ground. This thing is dead accurate. The barrel is super high quality, only bested by Boomsticks and Freaks, but remember those cost $100+ while this is a stock barrel. The pump action is smooth as can be. Some reviews recommend taking out the pump spring, but I see no reason to do that. The pump pull is not that difficult at all. It is also very consistent, often getting over 30 usable shots from one 12 gram. The entire gun oozes quality, from the finish to the internals, everything is great. AND if by some stroke of luck something turns foul with your Phantom, e-mail or call Mike Casady at CCI. His reputation of great customer service rivals that, if not beats, that of PMI. But then again, Mike is a one man shop while PMI is a national corporation... tells you something huh? The only upgrades that are really needed eventually, are the ball detent rings and trigger shoe. The rings prevent that occasional roll-out, and the trigger shoe make the trigger nice and meaty. For some people a stock is good, but I prefer going without one, as it makes for a tighter setup. The Phantom is customizable until the cows come home. Don't believe me, check out stockclasspaintball.com and look at their galleries. Told you so... Also, this marker SEEMS loud to me, but probably because I am used to the Freak with All-American front.

EDIT
--------------------------------
No, this gun is not loud. Loud is when my friend brought over his Flatlined A-5... that's loud. It's somewhere between a Freak and Flatline.
Conclusion: BOTTOM LINE: If you are even considering going pump/stock/modified stock class play, start with the Phantom. It is really worth every cent that you put into it. A truely great gun. Plus you can get about 3 Phantoms for the price of a Carter Comp/Buzzard, and those are only marginally better, if any. Go to the site stockclasspaintball.com to get introduced to stock/pump way of life. It's a well-worth-it conversion from semi. Plus if you do ever go back to semi, imagine what you could do with 200 balls @ 17 bps, when you're used to 10-15 balls @ 1 bps.
