Upgrades:
If you can handle having only 10 or 15 paintballs in your gun at a time, buy a stock class breach.
Use a tank if playing against semis or electros in most cases.
This gun needs no upgrades. They are only to increase the cool factor of your Phantom.
Strengths: -- Light
-- Freakin' accurate
-- Inexpensive
-- Durability
-- Simplicity
-- Reliable
Weaknesses: -- Rate of fire compared to semis
-- Hardline leaks rarely
-- Velocity hard to adjust
Review: Okay okay okay. I must be crazy or just stupid to play with a pump against 2 semis and an Angel. No I'm not because a Phantom outperforms all of them, even the Angel. This gun is the sniper's dream weapon. That one-shot-kill fantasy can come true with the accuracy of a Phantom. Countless times I have gogged players through a 2 or 3 inch hole in a bunker from a hole in my bunker. In one or two shots!! It's really that accurate.

This marker is very simple to field strip. There are only 3 parts (including the pump handle) and 2 springs in the entire gun. It takes about 3 minutes to disassemble, clean, oil, and reassemble my Phantom.

While the rate of fire is poor compared to a semi or electro, the auto-trigger can put out around 8 balls a second using a hopper. Not bad. If you are playing against markers other than pumps, I would suggest using a hopper with a 4 oz tank or a 9 oz tank on remote. The 12 grams can't take the abuse of auto-triggering as well when you're rushed. They are nice however when you can conceal yourself in bigger games because they make you a much smaller target.

This gun will improve your skills from spray-and-pray to wait and aim in no time. If you ever choose to use a semi again (I couldn't see why) this restraint will help your game and your wallet.
Conclusion: See the light. SO WHAT if you can shoot 18 bps but can't hit me. I only need ONE that hits to tag you out. And if I aim, it'll hit. At the fields, I have gone from being "the guy with the pump" to "That Pump Guy Who Got Out Me Last Game. " Look past the pump and consider the possibility of being able to hit what you aim for!!
