Spring Kits

I'm the proud new owner of a Phantom which I sadly know little about.

It has an adjustable bolt and was wondering if it's worth it to tune the marker with a spring kit, and if so, which one.

It depends. If you're not using 12 grams and it shoots at decent velocity, there's really not a lot to be gained. Fiddling with springs to maximize efficiency is somewhat worthwhile if you're playing with 12grams, but honestly anything above 25 or so is plenty. More is achievable, but honestly I question weather it's worth it. It seems like some people spend more time tuning than playing.

CCI sells 4 springs when it comes to the drive train of the phantom. They sell 3 main springs and one valve spring which is standard. They have a blue [light], silver[stock] with all phantoms, and red[heavy]. If running a bit too low then I installed a heavy spring if I was running too high then blue or a silver, but it is all case dependent in all honesty. I hear an autococker spring kit is the way to go however they are too long so they have to be trimmed to use, again I have read this but never done it myself. There are plenty of sources here for tuning a nelson based marker, which is what the phantom is.

I'd just go with a CCI kit.

Order the CCI kit, it comes with a whole bunch of extra seals and stuff. For the most part you really dont need any other valve springs especially if your going to run constant air.

I'm the type of person that tunes and tinkers with everything. Even so, my Phantoms run the stock spring. I shoot mostly 12 grams and am content. It's true that you can improve performance with spring kits. I've found that the stock springs generally give good results in most conditions. The last big game I played I shot about 40 rounds, most days I'm well under 200. I get around 35 rounds/12gram and good paint=good accuracy. It dose what I need it to do quite well. All the same if I get board enough I may order some springs.

Great parts kit for anyone. It's got one of pretty much everything that's likely to break, so quick field repairs are easy.
