well, it doesn't need to be, it just needs to be a fun, rewarding, reliable marker, like the phantom is, or better.

Well for stock class, a feed tube and body being 1 piece could look pretty sweet , also a better method to access internals similar to a garg

From a business stand point..... Nothing. The Phantom is THE success story of pump paintball. It has withstood the test of time and is still one of the most sought after markers.

From the players stand point..... Hmmmm lots of cool stuff.

I'm not sold on the revolution.

I love Mike and I love Phantoms, but the Revolution just seems half baked. I know the ones in the wild have been prototypes, but the whole semi-auto valve + tiny pump, I don't really dig it. It feels like he just needs somebody to tell him "no," in this case, like George Lucas.

As far as actual changes to the Phantom? The easiest would probably be threading the bodies for A-5 threaded barrels rather than Cocker threaded. That said, just about everything has been taken care of by the aftermarket. I agree with Stanchy that the angle on the .45 gripframe needs to die. I also wish the grip hole spacing wasn't so low.

But in this aspect, it is the Autococker of pumps. So many options if you wanted to change things out to be your own or to try and improve it to compliment your playing style. Adding those items would increase the costs and deter people from the marker. Letting the owner get things as the decide what appeals to them is a great way to have lots of users and lots of variations.

I couldn't agree more w/ DSA... the only thing I can think of that I would change that ISN'T already an aftermarket product for the phantom is some way to weigh it down a bit... I've never like how light a stock class phantom is (my prefered set up is: drop out, 45 frame, 10rnd, Freaked, w/ Rainman pump); it's just not as stable of a shot as something w/ a little bit more heft (ie: buzzard, duck, redux, etc). I've been toying around w/ the idea of getting some sort of steel block and shaping it to the same size as the hole in the 45 frame to give it a little extra weight/stability... but then again, that's just my preference, most people like how lite the phantom is

cocker threads and a shorter chamber, so the ball rests in the barrel and detents of course.
