Component Concepts Inc. Phantom Detent Ring Set Reviews
Easy to install rings to prevent undersized paintballs from rolling out of the breach. Kit includes four color-coded, anodized, precisely honed aluminium rings with inner diameters varying from .674" to .685".
The Component Concepts Inc. Phantom Detent Ring Set is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
CCI detent rings
CCI 16" sniper barrel
3.5 ounce tank
Completly stops roll outs.
Very easy to size paint and put in right ring.
Easy to loose(read review)
I loove these littel things. When I bought my phantom a while back, I bought the rings at the same time. All you have to do to find the right ring size to to grab 5 balls, and push them through sepertly, and the ring witht the least restance is the one you use. A way to keep form loosing the rings are to put them in a zip-lock bag and mark the bag. Plus there real cheap, and thats always a bonus with me.
Ive you've got a phantom, get these rings. Follow my instructions or read the ones that the rings come with, and you can kiss those rollouts away.

smaller barrels- they work better
Phantom SC, trigger shoe, ball detent that i dont use
It cost $6
Small and breakable
Dont work very well
I put one of these in thinkin it would work wonders....all i can say is, it didnt. They break if you dont take good care of them. They didnt stop doublefeeding, just made it harder to pump. There purpoes is to stop roll-outs, witch they dont do very well, but if you you have rollouts your accueraty is going to suck anyway- see the conculsion.
Buy a new barrel. If your ball is going to roll out of your barrel, than it doesnt have a very good paint to barrel match, right?? right! so if it doesnt have good paint to batrrel match, than it is going to be inaccurate even if it doesnt roll out. Therefore, you need to buy a new barrel
This is one of the few upgrades that you will ever need on your phantom(other a trigger shoe). This is a must if you dont want to pay for a barel kit, which i dont know why you would because the stock barrel is awsome. But the detent rings do just what the need to do, and that is to prevent roll outs, because of the giant bore that the phantom has. It is a 4 ring set for multiple sizes of paint.
Easy to install
Easy to match ball sizes
Very small = breakeable / easily lost
When I first had a marb roll out of my barrel, I knew something had to be done. After looking into a J&J edge kit, and even something as simple as a new CCI Nickel barrel, I wasn't too sure if I was ready to commit to something like that yet. Then I found out about these things. 6 bucks!!! What an amazing deal!
The rings are smooth, and the inside of them is rounded, so as to not distort the ball when fired (but they're so small, you can hardly even see this). They are also anodized brightly, and colour coded (the small package includes an easy to lose legend as to their four sizes).
Installation is a snap, all you have to do is unscrew your barrel, safely and neatly seat the detent ring of your choice in the bottom of the barrel threads in the marker, then screw the barrel back on.
The rings are quite thin and small. Not too much so, but just enough that you should be concerned about bending or losing them, although they are tooled from very strong aluminium.
When properly matched with your paint size, these things keep the balls from not only rolling out, but rolling part way up the barrel without you knowing it (and it happens more than you think), which is even worse, since that will ruin your accuracy and efficiency.
I'd give them a 9, for being so losable / bendable, but for $6, there's nothing bad you can say about these things. The most amazing value I've ever seen in paintball for some precision tooled devices.
....none really...unless you count the freak..but havent used that on my phantom...
VSC .45 phantom w/ acrylic parts
black 03 stickies
Easy to use
Handy for different types of paint
Fragile- dont put em in wrong, or step on em, or good-bye to ring....
Ok, I'll start with the good- they are a cheap alternative ($6..) to gettin the Frantom (or frantom 2) w/ freak inserts, and J&J Edge kit, etc . They do their job well, and are color coded to tell what size they are (forgot what color is what size...oh well). Now for the few bad things about em..even though they are a good alternative to an expensive barrel/barrel kit , they dont do quite as well as an entire barrel/ kit would. Also, they are small, thin, pieces of aluminum...formula for disaster if you manage to drop/step on 'em, or put em in the gun wrong..but replacing a dented/broken one isnt too bad...just pay the $6 for a new set....
If you arent willin to dish out $150+ on a good barrel/kit, these are the thing for you, but arent the absolute best thing out there, but by no means are bad
