A few questions
what are the temperature's before the 12 grams start to become inconsistent?
What kind of climates are best for what springs? (pertaining to the spring kit)
How do you gauged valves from CCI work? good or bad?
How does the ASP detent mod work? good or bad?
Thanks in advance

Ghost with the most
It's not so much the consistency that suffer as the shot count I find. I usually start leaving the 12g's at home in November. Not sure what the temperature specifically is, but probably around 10*C.
You can't really pick a region and say X springs will work best. Use what springs you need for your specific situation. That being said, I've never had anything but the stock springs in my Phantoms and they're always bang on.
Gauged valves are a bit of a gimmick. I don't see a huge benefit for them on a Phantom.
I have no input regarding the ASP mod since I've never used it (or even seen it in person), but it seems like it would work just fine.
Hope that helps.

I have the detent mod. It works for me. My reloader pushes past them though. Harder orings should help that though.

The pressure of CO2 in an enclosed space is temperature dependent.
If a gun running 12-grams is rapid fired, the pressure would drop until the gas absorbs heat.
A gauge of sufficiently large scale might help you monitor your CO2 temperature/pressure. If pressure dropped a lot, you'd know to either wait a minute for it to absorb heat or that it was close to being done.

I live in Canada. By the time it's +10 Celcius / 50F, I find 12-grams annoyingly finicky. They get poor efficiency off the bat and really poor efficiency (ie: low shot count) if you don't let them rest between shots to absorb heat.
By the time fall hits, I've likely switched to HPA using a remote line and 13/3000 bottle.

I suggest you use a Freak-bored barrel, not detents. No rollouts, perfect bore match. There are many threads posted on that subject so I won't repeat their content here.

To stop rollouts and match bore and barrel, the Python kit would also be worth mentioning. 4 sizers in the kit, and you can still use the (very good) stock barrel. You can even get .679 and .670 inserts from the company. I've never used it, but I've only heard good things from those who have.
Also, I've used CO2 tanks on a Phantom without problems in temperatures as low as -17C. IIRC I put in the red main spring when it got that cold, otherwise the stock springs will be just fine.
