Rear Gauged air adapter- Shows you how many shots you have left in your 12 gram co2 tank. Very helpful, im getting one soon.
15 round feet tube- dont need it, but if you like to play speedball with stock class guns it would help out a lot.
Ball detents- Match the bore of the paintball with the detent, more consistant and balls dont roll out.
Trigger shoe- makes trigger confortable
HARNESS OF SOME SORT- you do need this to carry your 10 round tubes and 12 gram c02s around. unless you dont mind the clinging noise as your about to sneak up on someone.
Easy to maintain
Quick load/12 gram change
Velocity Adjustment. See review.
Well lets see here, ill make this nice and quick.
stock barrel- Doesnt need to be replaced. very quiet and percise.
Accuracy- The ball goes where you point the barrel, no curves and very quiet. Just make sure you have the bore matched with the barrel.
Consistant- I get a +8/-8 on mine. Compared to my a-5, it used to be like +15/-15. Take in mind my a-5 is like 6 years old though so lol.
Light/Small- Damn i wish i was a little kid again, with this gun i could really mess some people up. Very small profile, excellent for snap shooting. Light as a feather (not literally), i can aim and shoot with just one hand after its been cocked (but why do that not as steady). I never get tired holding this baby.
Easy to maintain- Front and back thumb screw, takes these off and you can slide the parts out wipe them off and put some oil on them, slide em back in and your good for the day. Takes me 5-10 minutes to do this now, takes a bit to get used to like most guns.
Fast 12 gram/loading paintballs- LMAO, my dad was using my phantom and the 12 gram ran out... he was unscrewing the 12 gram changer off and it slipped out of his hands, he was like holy smokes, only 2 small turns and this baby is off!? hes going to buy one now lol. Also it is very simple to load the paintballs, takes no more than 5 seconds to take the cap off the 10 round tube, slide the balls in and put the cap back on the 10 round tube. I get anywhere from 35-45 shots out of a 12 gram, last 5 shots seem to lob out of the barrel so you know when to change it.
Solid- Hmmm, it's built with t-6 aluminum???? BEAST!. (please message me if I wrote down the wrong material, im pretty sure thats what it is built with)
Rock and cock- You barely have to do this as long as your moving around a ball will get stuck in the little divit and its really a life saver :) but yes you do have to rock and cock to get a ball in the loading chamber thingy to shoot if your just standing still. very simple process takes a little getting used to.
Pump stroke- I find mine to be loud! ive never shot another pump gun before but i must be pumping it really fast and hard for it to do this or something lol.
Velocity Adjustment- Well now, sticking a metal rod down your barrel i dont like it at all, so i take my barrel off and change the velocity, im scared i will scratch the insides of the barrel with the rod. This is also a good thing though, because people cant change the velocity on the gun after it has been chrono'd unless you actually see them doing it, very hard to get away with when lots of people are around.
I have never chopped a ball with this, i have double fed though only because i held the chamber open to long.
I wont mention names but i had a problem with one of the retailers that sold me my phantom and they sent me the wrong parts 2 times in a row, so i told Mike Cassidy about this and he patched up the problem for me the same day! Mikes awesome! I recieved my parts 1 week later, sent directly from Mike to make sure it was done properly.
EDIT: Consistancy- For some reason it got better after playing with the gun some more, it is now like +5/-5.
buy this if you want to get into pump paintball.. light, percise, solid, small, easy to maintain. what more do you want. Great design Mike!. Nice customer service.
10 out of 10
