What Did I Just Buy? *CCI Unibody Phantom Edition*

I've kinda wanted a unibody for a few years (kicked myself for not buying a blue Phantom Shadow that Bacci had for sale a few years back) and came across this guy on the 'Bay:



Here is the interesting bit. According to the description:



So, does anyone have any knowledge to confirm or refute these claims? As far as I'm concerned, I got a fair deal on an ordinary Phantom Shadow, but if there is any legitimacy to the buyer's claim, that would be neat, too.

I doubt it's anything special, but I'm thinking about ASP detents and I wanted to check with you old fogi... I mean seasoned veteran players, to make sure before we start cutting

Once I have it in hand, I suppose I'll contact the Master himself.

Those unibodies the bore could be up to .695 ID. ASP detents maybe not enough for today's small paint. You will have to caliper the ID to see which one you have.

That is a handy piece of information. I will do so.
If she's a .695 then maybe I just bought my first wallhanger / chrony queen

Can't you convert a unibody? I though I read somewhere it was possible to cut the barrel off and cut threads as necessary.

I'm glad I didn't bid you up. I considered bid sniping that at the last minute.

There were two late bids but no true sniping attempts... for once... ya vultures...

Melvin-I think if it comes to that, I'll mount it in a shadow box with a patch and use my modern phantom

worst case just put some scotch tape around each paint ball until snug. Its like a reverse detent but acts like a detent.





:edit: this was sarcasm, not actual advice.

Truly can't tell if you're being serious. I'm curious now...

Ooh, I could laminate em, or, or, enamel paint!! Heck, I bet if I could get a consistent .006" layer over a .677 ball I could sell em on here for 15 cents a pop!

It's a regular, old, brown anno, Phantom "Shadow". I don't recall any of the Geese using one of these in this color. I know of a red "Tournament" and a green "Express" being used by the Geese, but I don't recall a brown.
