main question is what type of barrel you using. i have dye boomstick on my phantom if set right it quite. like most people say raincover are hit and miss at some place too. since looks like silencers to some. i got this too a lot When I ran CO2 and a 12" Dye Boomstick, I regularly got asked if my gun was shooting right. all depends on set up and how well gun cleaned.
