You are missing a pump return spring. Your internals are the modern anti-kink design so there's no issue there. This will fix you right up: https://phantomonline.com/product/pump-return-spring/

Thatís awesome 😂 I appreciate the help! So lastly, itís in the 40-50*ís right now and I want to try this thing out on the field. Recommend I just slap an HPA tank on rather than the co2 for the colder weather? I understand it canít be a low pressure, I just put all the shims back into my adjustable reg.

HPA always works. CO2 might be doable but personally I don't mess with 12gs when it's that cold. You might have to swap bolt springs to tune it for your preferred gas

If you run HPA look for a tank Reg that can put out 800psi you will hit 280 FPS with stock silver springs and get great efficiency with 12g without a spring swap. I run Stock silver spring on all of my Phantoms.

One other source of help and advice - call CCI and talk to Mike. He loves touching base with Phantom owners, even if you didn't buy it new from him. Sometimes, he even knows the history of a few that are out there. Plus, talk to him when planning upgrades or customization - he is a true friend to paintballers in general, and Phantom owners for sure.

He and I talked several times when I was upgrading and customizing my Phantom, and it was Mike who helped me figure out the right springs for what I had in mind. The end result was a Phantom perfect for how I play. I called him a few months back to order some internal o-ring kits for a routine-maintenance rebuild ( I usually completely tear it down and rebuild it once per year ), and although I hadn't talked to him for a good while, he chatted with me like an old friend. And he was quick to mail out what I bought ( actually arrived 1 day earlier than the estimate ).

That being said, have fun with your Phantom! and welcome to owning one ! Nice colors on yours !

Here's mine:



Feel free to PM me with questions too if you want !
