He bought it from me. I never had issues with this at all. The two springs I had on it gave it plenty of return on it, I am really baffled as to why it is doing this. It was perfectly fine for me the whole time I had it, the only reason I sold it is to get an electro.

Im not saying its destroyed. It does pump quite well and returns much better now that I stretched the springs a bit. Im only saying that I thought it would be smoother. Maybe Im wrong. This is my first real pump gun so I cant quite be sure. Im just trying to figure ways to make it smoother if it is possible. And by no means did I mean that Kungpoo sold me some junky pump. I just expected a better stroke is all.

Take your barrel off And look at the Velocity adjuster screw in your bolt. If it's not more then 1/4inch in the bolt. It will cause the hammer to bind.

So after talking with Kungpoopanda and the original owner Vitalsilence, Ive decided that the pump stroke is as smooth as it is suppose to be and I just didnt know any better. The major problem of the pump not returning all the way was fixed by stretching the springs out. I just tested it and it was much better then when I played with it on Saturday. I think all in all it was just my lack of knowing better. I guess I just didnt realise that a phantom stroke is not as smooth as a CCM. And the stroke not being as smooth has nothing to do with the Rainman kit. I really think its just because its a phantom. Thanks for the help everyone.

Here is a compilation thread about smoothing out the pump stroke of the Phantom, I've done a few of these mods and its not as smooth as a CCM but its smoother than a stock phantom.

Smoothing out the pump stroke

Yea I saw that. I think I am going to shim the pump rod but the polishing I think is above my skills and I dont have any real tools.

If you want to polish the internals, go to an automotive store, get some mag/aluminum wheel polish and a rag. That's all you need it may not come out super shiny but it will be better than stock.

So heres an odd discovery on my part. I aired it up and with the safety on I cocked it. Once cocked the stroke is super light and nice. I know that once you cock it the hammer catches the bolt so the stiffness is coming from the internals? And if so is there a way to soften the stroke? I do have the other springs but I dont know what is for what. Will putting another spring in help? Its still working just fine. Now Im just trying to tweak and tinker.
