Exclamation A NEW Phantom Marker: THAT'S RIGHT a NEW Marker from CCI

Today while I was placing a telephone order for parts and talking with Mike Casady, the originator of the Phantom and owner of CCI, he mentioned that he has been working very hard on getting a new marker ready for market. I about dropped my phone and collected myself and said, ”A NEW Marker?!?!” Mike said that he has been very busy getting parts machined and ready to bring a prototype to an upcoming Pump Event. He told me that the new Phantom is based on a design that he had prototyped back in 1996. (After we got off the phone, I did some research and found that it was called the Phantom Revolution.) Mike said that he has been wanting to get back to utilizing the design that he had developed, and his original intentions were to bringing it to market as a 25th Anniversary Edition, when his company reached its 25th year of producing Phantoms, which is about a year and a half from now. Due to what he sees as great potential for rapid growth in the Pump Market, he decided that the time is right, to bring the new marker to the market rather than waiting until later.

I wasn’t taking notes, so this is from memory of what I considered to be a fascinating conversation. Mike explained that the mechanism will require pumping, only to chamber the ball, which will make for a very smooth pump stroke. The cocking of the firing system will be done by a mechanism related to the Revolution, which from what I could find “on line” is a semi-auto, electric micro-motor rotating bolt.

He said that he is excited about the possibilities that the new marker will provide. It bringing together other ideas that he has wanted to incorporate into the marker, that he has been working on for quite a while. He said that the current Phantom will stay in production forever but the new marker would meet new areas of growing demand that the Pump Market is experiencing. I'd say his timing is pretty good!
That is some pretty exciting news!!!

Dear sweet lord, this will be the greatest birthday present in all of existence.

if i'm not mistaken someone posted something about the revolution in an earlier thread, but it was of a picture of it or something.

It was a semi, this is going to be a marker that you pump only to chamber the ball. Everything else is done by the mechanics of the Revolution system. It is going to be very easy to cock. S-M-O-O-T-H!!!!
