The Product you are looking at is a modification for phantom stock bodies only. This modification is to allow the phantom to use ego rubger detents to help the paintballs stay in the breach, its effective in preventing rollouts that plague the phantoms. This involves milling a slot right in front of the top screw to allow an ego detent to be placed, it is then help in place by screwing on the stock feed adapter to the body. Modification is similar to the one on Lapco's Grey Ghost, except they use kingman detents. The modified body will be sent back with one (1) Ego detent to ensure use on arrival.
The Phantom Ghost Detent Modification is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
Black VSC Phantom w/ Black Stock
Everything on it is stock, except the
Ghost Detent Modification (GDM)
Very Cheap upgrade
Detents are easy to find (ego)
Easy to lose detent since they are small
To make things short, I have tested one of the modified phantoms and bought the modification which was done for me by the owner of the company. I have done extensive testing to ensure that the modification is viable and works. In one of the test i performed, I compared how many paintballs would rollout with and without the detent. Without the detent I had 8/10 rollout. When the detent was in 0/10 rolled out. In other words, it was perfect.
The main advantage of the modification is that it is cheap compared to getting a freak kit along with a new barrel, You are able to use the stock barrel which is already awesome.
Also, the detent allows the ball to fit snug against the bolt, help to seal the air around it, giving it slightly better efficiency. A barrel kit will help do this too, except when encountered by a deformed ball, a kit might have a partial rollout.
The reason for creating this modification is the fact that you can't trust the paint that you buy to be very consistent, especially when you are using field paint. I've had autococker with barrel kits on them, the freak kit was the best in my experience, yet there was still some paintballs that would rollout or have a partial rollout.
The website is: http://www.phoenixpbdivision.webs.com for those who are interested in trying out this upgrade.
Also, to people who are going to ding me on the paint comment. I have used RPS paintballs, they are awesome and one of the only ones i really trust to be consisntent (premiums, marbs, etc).
Thanks for reading
