Surprised no one mentioned it yet unless I missed it. A great upgrade is a tri-fluted hammer. Stanchy does this service as well. Average shot counts on 12g is usually around 10 percent I think. I noticed a 10 shot increase on mine. Individual results may vary.

Honestly I have had a rainman for years with the regular round ccm grip. I love the feel of the T grip and I don't know why but the pump strike on it is so smooth, I am going to do the copper pipe mood to the pump arm to see if I can get it even smoother.
So my two cents, the t grip is well worth the extra money.

i did a veriation of the cooper pipe mod on it. but i used a 3/16 compression nut instead of the 5/16 compression coupler and it holds it pretty straight and it only cost .50 cents. it also keeps it off the walls of the grip frame so that in itself smooths out the stroke. i hear if you use a little graphite power on the fitting and the pump rod it is super smooth. didn't get to try it before i traded it though

i also used two really light springs instead of one hard spring. one on the pump rod and one on the guide rod because what i found is if you just have one with the rainman pump kit when you pump it tends to cock and causes binding. when i put two on it it seamed to keep the handle straighter during pumping. i also round the edges of the bolt alittle were the bolt "sear" on the hammer rides up to grab the bolt and that helped by leaps and bounds to smooth out the stroke

I have never heard of that. It sounds nice though. I may have a bunch of work for Stanchy.

Couldn't for the life of me get my black phantom with trifluted hammer and ported tpc to work on 12-ies, worked on HPA though, very well as a matter of fact

I once asked Mike "what phantom accessory or improvement not made by you is the best?" He said, "if you can find them, the two piece phantom threaded barrels for freak inserts." I thought that was an interesting answer. Mine is freak bored, and I think that works fine.
There is some fear that the freak boring weakens the barrel too much. I don't think it does, but I have had a different freak bored phantom barrels that did not screw into the body as far as designed. You may want to measure the barrel, and you could request that the person boring it makes it the same length after the freak insert is inside of it. I think some guys are a little scared to bore it that far.
