Have you tried the sizers yet? I know they aren't a true detente system, but they work well.

i mean..pretty much any type of detent will help. whether you want to go with an ego detent, freak kit, or the asp.

Go buy yourself the cutest nail polish you can find. It stops all sorts of feeding issues

Are you thinking/capable of drilling your own?

If no....

1. Electrical tape
2. Nail polish/epoxy (nail polish if you want it removable; epoxy if you're really confident)
3. ASP
4. Rings
5. Sizer

The ASP mod is the only one that will stop both double feeds and rollouts. I have it on all of my phantoms, they are a lifesaver.

not to thread jack, but I have a related question:

*have a drill press
*have a dremel
*not afraid to use them
*use CCM barrels w/sizers or freaked barrels (roll outs not really an issue)
*have o/c and s/c bodies

what would been an effective/cheap DIY mod to stop double feeds?

I suppose I don't notice double feeding as a problem on my o/c gun--that mostly comes down to rhythm when pumping. I mostly notice double/1.5 feeds when using my duckslide. Maybe I just need to work on the rhythm of pumping a s/c phantom and forget modding my bodies.

In the world I see - you are stalking elk through the damp canyon forests around the ruins of Rockefeller Center. You'll wear leather clothes that will last you the rest of your life. You'll climb the wrist-thick kudzu vines that wrap the Sears Tower. And when you look down, you'll see tiny figures pounding corn, laying strips of venison on the empty car pool lane of some abandoned superhighway.

Practice, practice, practice.

As for modding, here's an old write up I did long long long time ago.

Copy and pasted.

=-=-=-=-=-
So anyways.
DISCLAIMER!!!: I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY THING YOU DO TO YOUR MARKER. YOU DO IT ACCORDING TO YOUR OWN WILL, FEW ARE SKILLED TO MOD THEIR OWN MARKER, AND DOING SO IS ON YOUR OWN RISK!
What you need:
Phantom or similar marker with stockclass feed
Drill bits sizes 9/64, 3/16
Black sharpie
Vice (to help hold the things in place)
Drill of some sort
Rubber Spyder Detent
Some general mechanical knowledge (how to drill hole) and a competent mind

=-=-=-=-=--=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=--=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=--=-=-

Drill hole on top side of stockclass body, about 1/16" above the already existing breech screw. Use a small drill bit, 9/64.




Use a sharpie and darken the top of the spyder detent, and place the breech as you would normally do.

Removing the breech, there should be a black dot from the sharpie. Drill that dot with a 3/16 drill bit.

Drill so the detent backing sits flush into the stockclass breech.





Install and enjoy.



I've used this mod for the past 3 months, and it's been working pretty good. No problems with roll outs. Any barrels, and I haven't had to fumble for an insert or detent ring in a while.



Now, doing this mod, basically puts a detent right where the regular detent ring would sit. You can use a detent ring kit at anytime, but you would need to remove the spyder detent so there is room for the rings.
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Now, this detent mod works great. I don't run it anymore because I'm just spoiled using freak inserts in my frantom barrel.
