Works fine and you can use nearly any sized flat head screwdriver.
"I just use an unmodified screwdriver
", that's what I did and I still had Co2 leaking out of my "bucket". With that being said; I tried to use the Phantom bucket on the Sterling adapter but the threads aren't deep enough in the bucket to put the cartridge high enough to even puncture it. I tried the Sterling Bucket on the Phantom adapter and the threads are too deep on the bucket for the cartridge to be secure but high enough to puncture it, so it leaks real bad.
All is good though, my Phantom quick changer works just fine and I'll be out using it today to prove it.
Started with a Splatmaster, moved onto a Nelspot 007, then came the Autocockers, then a STERLING Pump, next was a Bob Long defiant then a PM7. As of now I have 8 Sterling Pumps, 1 Phantom for SC, a CCM SS-25, a PGP and a Sovereign 3.
