New Phantom owner... got a few questions
Just got this in the mail today. I got it off ebay and the pictures weren't very clear, clear enough to tell it was a Phantom. It is a unibody. The internal seem to be all original and she shoot GREAT!!! It has the older style bolt from the reading I have done here. Any recommendation would be welcomed. She is S/N 4643
I installed the T-Stock today.
Now I have a few question about it that will help me move up with accessorizing it.
1. Are the frame screw original? Would like to replace them to the field strip screw if they will screw in.
As you can tell from the picture above and below, the feed neck is spot welded. I don't think this is original, right?
It has the original screw in type feed neck, I can go to Lowes/Home Depot and get a 1" 45* PVC elbow and fit a hooper or straight pipe to make a loader. What I would like to do is have a feed tube that I could T and screw in. I saw this from CCM. Would that work?
yup, the stock thumbscrews will replace whats on there.
the spot weld is stock. usually there is a tiny plastic sleeve covering it.
leave the feed neck as is. get an elbow and add a hopper. plumbing fittings may work, but not recommended.
The ccm threads on that cram and jam and the cci threads are not compatible as far as I know... Im not a ccm guy, someone jump in and correct me if I'm wrong please. If you like the ccm cram and jam, it would probably be easier to switch your phantom to a stock class body and the delrin horizontal feed adapter (part 36), but not screw in the 10 or 15 rd aluminum feed(parts 44,45, 45a) --just cram and jam 10rd tubes. (EDIT: D'OH! just remembered it was a unibody, scratch that last bit. But still, you could get a s/c body and a a barrel to go with the o/c unibody. I know there are some cram and jams/angled 10rd tubes to convert open-->stock, just keep looking! or someone else will shortly point you in the correct direction).
most of all, enjoy that beauty of a phantom out on the field where they are meant to be. happy pumping!
If you are okay with modifying it, I would see if ASP will do his detent mod to a unibody. That way you won't have to worry about rollouts with such a large bore.
I would probably just find an elbow that fit and make an angled 10-15 rd gravity tube feed.
I second the above, see if Have_blue (that's the man who runs ASP, his username here) will do his detent mod to it.
Make a stick feed for it! There's a great how-to in the tutorials sub section in the custom section. WALZ and a few others also make fancier stick feeds.
Making a feed tube today. I remember how to make them from back on the days ;) Just got to hit up Lowes outdoor sports section. I was hopping there was something in metal that would thread to the original feed neck. I will see about getting a detent done on it.
Another thing I would love to do is get the original logos printed on the trigger frame.
Just pick up a new trigger frame that's what I did with mine. I wanted it to match my red unibody though. 3/4" copper tubing fits perfect on the feedneck that's also what I used. Then I just went and bought one of Walz's brass feed tubes. Just because it looks more professional.
^ Can you point me in the right direction as where to find the Walz tube?
I would like to keep the original frame. Today, I polished all the internals and buffed the external part of the barrel where the pump slides on. It made a huge difference in pump resistance. I'm going to try to take it for a real test drive tomorrow and play a quick game.
I got most of the materials to build a gravity feed tube. I just need to get the rubber piece for the top.
Here is the interest thread for them they are a little bit more spendy than a copper feed tube that you would make yourself but they are awesome quality.
Got another question regarding HPA. I seen that I can use HPA in this gun, but my question is, I use a 1100 psi output tank for my Minimag, could I use that one or is the pressure too high?
Using a second inline reg would be best. You could probably get away with it. Someone with more experience on hpa should come in though.
