The accuracy of this review is disputed. Please see discussion below.
Period of
Product Use:
Only tested1 of 37 people found this review helpful.

2 years
Products Used:
Nothing...nothing cost so much for so little preformance
Marker Setup: CCI VSC Phantom (15rd tube, 14" Stock), M16 Grip, L-stock
new gun
Strengths: It was alright, accurate, but it seemed like I was getting 25-30 shots from a 12, and I'm used to more like 40-45. Smooth pump
Weaknesses: Well, my friend tripped, slammed the barrel against a rock, and dneted the darn thing so it couldn't be used without the ball breaking. I've tripped and my Phantom did NOT have a bent barrel. Needless to say, I wasn't impressed with it's durability.
Conclusion: Get something else. It's a nice gun and all, but not cost efficient. I'll grade this marker on cost efficiency verses preformance.
6 out of 10

PPS can fix the barrel without a problem.

Im sure your tripping scenarios put the exact same amounts of force on each barrel... yeah right... please dont give it a bad review just because someone tripped

Im gonna agree with party Squirrel on this one, you can't base a review on an inexact science. Its not the guns fault he tripped

you dont buy a gun because of the price. you buy a gun to adhere to your game. obviously you dont have any game. this gun is prob the best pump out there. slap a scope in this and piss off 2000 dollar cocker and angel owners. this is an awesome marker and you stink.

rediculous, "only tested" is not a period of use. you have no experiance with this marker and give it such a negative review especialy based on that example.send me your phantom, i bet i can snap it in half on an average days play. iv used palmers and owned phantoms. and if theres build qualitie problems anywhere, its with the phantom

Ok. The phantom is a great pump, if the reviews tell true. However...

You cannot give a bad review to a marker simply because the barrel got bent when your friend tripped, we call that "user error" It is also your fault not to contact pps and see if they'll fix it for you, I bet they would.

User Error does not constitute a bad review.

And your Phantom barrel would dent much easier than the SS barrel. The SS is made of brass, a very durable heavy duty metal alloy, Aluminum however, is a lightwieght metal that is easily maliable and if you were to hit it on a rock, it would do much more damage to the barrel on your phantom compared to the SS.

I'm sure your trips were exactly the same.

In order to bend a 1" brass tube that has been nickle plated, you would need to hit it with a 5 pound sledge. dropping it would not do it, therefor you are a liar, or a gorilla. this would shatter a alu barrel, at least the brass can be reworked and repaired.
