Someone mentioned doing this before, but I seem to recall unreasonable expectations as to what people feel the work/material involved would be worth to them. It would be very cool, but pricey.

The same thing happens whenever the idea of a limited or custom run product gets kicked around, especially with Phantoms. Someone asks for a speciality body/barrel/frame/pump kit, generates some interest, and everything falls to pieces the first time "hey I would totally pay up to $40 for that extremely difficult to machine part" is uttered. It's unfortunate really.

Just look at Avratech's stainless bodies. They are $90 a piece (with no idea on Josh's profit margins on the R7 and accessories) and might be easier than a Phantom body to machine.

I seem to recall KPCS mentioning stainless bodies earlier this year.

I wouldn't mind SS or a Brass phantom,

If some one where to do something like this what would our wish list be on something like this?

I will start it off,:

Cocker threaded(just for ease of barrels)

Now what else?

Stainless Phantom?

-Cocker threading
- ASP detent
- right offset stockclass (personal preference)
- integrated pump kit into the trigger frame (since this is a wish list and such) OR integrated vertical adapter (no more tiny screws on the frame, yay!)
- gauged valve
