Slightly deformed body?

I bought my second Phantom a few years ago after selling my first. Built this one up to be really modular, it's a RF body with a back bottle valve that I side tapped for a 1/8 NPT. I like how it's set up, but its inconsistent.. like a lot. The internals dont seem to slide smoothly in the body. So I'm about 90% sure I need a new one. Anyone else have a similar experience? Or possibly have a RF body for sale?

I would post some pics and see if someone can point to something specific they can see.

Pictures wouldnt help. The amount it's out if it is out is extremely minimal.

possibly bolt rod bent? (pump rod). if the body or bolt had a problem there would be wear marks in the body tube. have you taken it apart to check the internals of the gun? dirt? rust/corrosion?

Something I have come across is if you have the velocity screw to low(flush with the front of the bolt) the anti-kink doesn't work. The velocity screw needs to be at least an 1/8 to 1/4 below the tip for the bolt and hammer to properly match.

To follow up on the anti-kink idea, are the internals updated? Have the internals ever been consistently smooth to use while the phantom is aired up?

This... I would try a new spring kit first. Newer style TPC with the Oring wouldn’t hurt if you don’t have one.

It could be the body but I highly doubt it. Phantom body bores are not the smoothest. Start with a clean lightley oiled internals and Stock Silver springs. See if that fixes the issue.

You may want to also shim your pump rod to take out excess play. A lot of wobble in the pump stroke can cause you to grind the bolt against one side of the body. I think a few folks on here make and sell shims. I made my own with some 7/32 brass tubing from a hobby store for a couple bucks. That and I use a little air tool oil now and again on moving parts.

I would bet the pump rod is slightly bent.
