Autococker Tactical Trilogy w/ 14" Whisper barrel
PMI Pure Energy 20 oz. Co2
I ordered and received this marker (I own a REAL .223 AR-15 rifle, so I will NOT classify this gelatin-launcher as a "gun.") It came packaged nice and neat, encased in soft white foam,
the first thing that struck me was it's light-weight and the beautiful black glossy finish on the marker. I had a few 12 grams handy, so I gassed the marker up and decided to see how many shots I could get off a 12 gram, to my surprise, the Phantom will shoot 40 shots before it needs another 12 gram (maybe 50 if you oil and lube it before a game.) The pump is kind of stiff at first, but that's not a problem after shooting a few shot's off. This is the most quiet paintball marker you can get that is efficent with Co2, it sounds like you are blowing air through the barrel, that's how quiet it is. The barrel is nice, I ordered mine with an 11", the barrel is ported AND has some a few rifled groves at the end of the barrel (which means it is going to shoot straight regardless of the quality of paint you put through it!) I still need to get a red-dot sight for mine, otherwise this is a good marker and very economic (I ordered mine from bulldogpaintball.com and had it shipped for $191!) I have an Autococker and thought I would try something more simple and easy, I am happy to own this marker. I plan to use this marker on newbies only, when I am playing woodsball and I'm up against Tourney players I use my Autococker to pick them off, maybe I'll use the Phantom, I'm still thinking about that one.
Good product, great price (if you know where to shop) and a great addition to anyone's list of paintball gear, great for those considering a switch to a more simple style of paintball. I myself like to play both Semi and Stock-class, great marker for any level of play or experience.
