What did I do now !? Phantom Help
So I just got my phantom and love it, works great so I decided to take it apart first time today and polish the internal bolts with mothers polish to make them shine and oil them. Now I think I made the mistake and oiled the wrong things or somthing else . I put the gun together and is sure its all right , except now when I rock the gun or move it , it sounds like an interal is moving around like sliding. when I half cock the pump or full cock and hold it back it stops and everything seems solid again. but if I hold it and move somthing is sliding inside and is really annoying. Would the oil/polish affect the hammer * (I guess thats what it would be called with the hook) get oil on it and now moves? I aired the gun and it now shoots smoother with no leaks and looks good.

Sorry about my noobness right now and not knowing proper internal names, been a while since working on the markers again and never owned a phantom !

Thanks guys

Most Phantoms will rattle a bit. You may not have noticed it before polishing, or it may have reduced the outer part dimension just enough to rattle. I wouldn't worry about it. Go shoot it and see if there is a problem.

It still shoots great just noticed it more . Probably just paranoid I put It together wrong. Thanks for the reply!

Phantoms are like AK-47's, if it didnt blow up in your face then keep shooting and don't worry about it.

could be your mainspring rattling around, if the TPC is all the way forward... or maybe it's your TPC rattling around :p
