In Topic: CCI Phantom Setup Advice

23 June 2014 - 06:44 PM

Buying direct from CCI is the best way to go.

Buying a new Phantom you can get whatever you want, but it sounds like you want two different mainbodies.
One Stock Class & one open feed, which can be left, right, or center feed. Only another $35 to get an extra body, and everything else stays the same.
Swapping out the Main Body between open feed & stock class feed is less than 2 minutes, and you don't even have to de-gas the valve to do it.

And I never get roll outs due to technique, I don't put a ball in the barrel and then go running around ~ that's just asking for it to happen.
I only pump a ball into the barrel when I'm bringing the marker up to aim, the ball has maybe one second before I pull the trigger (with practice, the pump action and trigger pull are nearly simultaneous).

One thing about Phantoms I will say; They don't wear out, they wear in.
The more you use it, the smoother the pump stroke gets and FPS is more consistant.

I think it would be awesome if you all at punk works tested these head to head and showed finally hands down which is the more, even slightly, better maker, and put the debate to rest.

Can't be done. Too many variables, the greatest being everybody has a different opinion about what constitutes "best".

You find what works best for YOU, and that's the best pump regardless that someone else may have a different opinion.

Well, I threw up my other 2 6Paks and my Turret, I sold my Micro CA- II almost instantly and I threw up a bunch of my other odds and ends. SAR12 here I come.


Where was I nine months ago?

Depends on the changer/marker.

Old Sheridans are miserable, unscrewing forever...
Splatmasters are little quicker with the bottom speedwheel.
Standard Bucket changers can vary by brand & number of threads.
CCI "triple-start" threads are what you described.
Screw tightening Drop-outs can be fast or slow depending on how the 12ie comes out.

Lever changers are faster than any threaded type.
The ACI Turret used a lever lock and revolving cylinder holding five 12g's which is real quick once you get used to it.
And the Holy Grail of 12g changers was the AGD 6-Pak. So fast you could change 6 empties in 3 seconds (you wouldn't try that with full ones being kicked out)

Of course, the last two were never considered "stock class" legal.

LL-7 for me.
It'll be a road-trip from CT, and my first time there.
