New to Phantoms

Well I should be getting the Phantom I recently traded for in the mail tomorrow. Now I know absolutely nothing about them other than I will need to get a velocity adjuster rod. I was also thinking about this if it doesn't already have it.

Is there any tips for new owners or suggested parts?

Here are some pics of what I will be getting, minus the TechT part and Bob Long ASA.

Looks really good.

I suggest having SSC freak bore your barrel.
It will let you underbore which will stop double feeds and roll outs.

For Your airsource, either a 12 gram changer or 3,5 oz tank vertically works well.

The only reason you would need an ASP ported tpc is if you want more efficiency on 12 grams

you'll love using it and it looks very nice. but i agree with slinger grab a bored barrel or have yours bored, and if you send your barrel to staunchy send your vert valve body to him to have in gauged so you know how much air/co2 you've got left. Also a flat head screwdriver works just as well as the cci velocity adjuster.

sorry, i thought it was a punisher. i would definitely suggest a rainman kit i love mine. Its so comfortable but if i were using a micro phantom i'd go with the wevo/cci

Freak bored barrel or some sort of bore control. I plan on underboring every marker I shoot after watching punkworks videos and going through their threads and data.

Would the air sorces you suggested be any better than the bottom line set up it currenlty has with a 68/4500 tank?

I got the impression that the ASP ported TPC also allowed you to get rid of the nylon grub screw that hold the velocity adjuster. From reading the manual the whole velocity adjustment things seems different, but I don't have the Phantom in my hands yet to try it out.

So have him guage the valve body that is currently on the marker? Flat head screwdriver to adjust the velocity. Would it be best to take the barrel of to make adjustments and then put it back on to check the adjustment? I really truly am a visual learner so I'm trying to understand it a way I can visualize it.

If you want you can run it how it is, but I suggest a 13/3k if your running the bottomline, just because I think it balances better, and you can still get 150-200 shots off with it.

TPC does let you get rid of screw, but also doesn't like brittle paint. Ups your efficiency also.

And to adjust velocity with a flat head, your gonna need to take the barrel off.

I think you'll be pleasantly surprised with the lightness of the phantom to put a 68/45 on it. It'll work just fine though, I really like 45/45's on phantoms myself. For the bottom line, get an ASA with a wedge if you haven't yet. Feels a lot nicer.

Yes, a flathead screwdriver will work fine. I just took my barrel off, tweaked it, rinse and repeat.
