yes, if you underbore (run an insert smaller than the paint)

sort of.

original phantoms were unibodies (unremovable barrel built onto the breech)
the original phantoms with threaded barrels had LOOSE tolerance on the threads
the new phantom barrels with TIGHTER tolerance may/may not (usually not) fit the old ones, but the old barrels should fit the new ones

i'd guess 95% of the phantoms being used are the new style (i need to ask mike if he know exactly when it happened)

i can freak bore both of them, i just need to dimension the oring groove, on some it was really thin and not safe because of the loose tolerancing
