Experience:

Similar
Products Used:
I have never used a stock class marker before, ive only used a semi.
Marker Setup: Vertical Stock Class Phantom-Black
14-inch barrel
14-count ammo tube
Electronic Sight
Everything else is stock
Recommended
Upgrades:
Maybe an electronic sight, the gun just looks cooler with a big sight on it. The sight rail on it is fine though.
Also I am planning on buying a Telescope T-Stock 45 Grip for it, because for me the gun just dosen't feel right without something solid to rest your shoulder on.
Strengths: Highly Accurate! Light Weight, Looks Great., Very durable
Weaknesses: I have seen no weaknesses in the gun yet.
Review: This is the most accurate marker I have ever seen, it is accurate to the dot every time. If you are able to view any body part of your opponent you will be able to hit him/her.(seriously)

This marker is extremely lightweight and versatile. Without a heavy CO2 canister on the end, it is able to be fired in any position.

This marker is also pretty easy to maintain and clean. With the unscrewing of a few screws it is easily disassembled and reassembled. I have never busted a ball in this marker.

The use of the 12g co2 is a really different experience. Once you get used to changing the co2, you'll really start to like it. One 12g co2 lasts about 14 shots accurately.

The only thing I had trouble with in the beginning, was having to pump after every shot, but you get used to it. Another big change after only using a semi, is that you only have a few rounds to use. You have to make most shots count, but with the insane accuracy of this marker it definitely isn't hard to do. I personally had to alter my game entirely to be effective on the field. I had to change from a "spray and pray" attitude to a stalking sniper. This gun has made me a better player.

With its slow rate of fire you can't slug it out with an automag, but you can definitely pick him off from a distance. This gun is also relatively quiet.

Great Economy....maybe use 100 balls of allday play, with about ten 9g co2's

Maybe a little pricey, but its worth every cent.

This gun is the perfect sniper's gun!!!!! Soooo accurate.
Conclusion: This gun is THE most accurate gun I have ever seen used!
I haven't had one problem after getting used to the marker.
There is no better stock class marker out there. If you want firepower don't get this gun,but if you like a combined accuracy, with durability, and dependability you'll love this gun.

you should be able to get at least 25 good shots from a 12 gram, something might be wrong or you play in the snow lol

okay i have heard as the lowest reasonable count being 20 shots with a brand new phantom... but 14 is waaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyy off... mine shot 30 good and 5 okay brand new stock... now i have it shooting 50 good shots and 5 plunkers... but there is absolutley no way you only get 14 shots unless you have a leak on aire

Yeah man, 14 is way too low. I get about 35 good shots, and about five to ten plunkers off of one twelve gram.
