I'm curious about this too. I had the vendetta-style CCI one and it was very nice and smooth, but holy bejesus it's pricy.

The CCI one is my favorite. On the larger Phantom, I still have the old-style Rainman kit, which I also really like, but the CCI dual rod kit with the Vendetta handle is pretty much perfect.

Sniper. It's perfect. Vertical Phantom is a close second.

If I feel like playing semi, it's usually the 'mag.

The micro Phantom for true stock class.

The Palmer and Tippy are just silly fun. Heavy, loud, but love 'em.

But if I had to pick one, the Sniper.

Excuse further ignorance:
How is the gas getting into the phantom, bottom left?
Is middle left the one from your videos with the side tapped stabilizer?
Are you shoving a 13 c vertical style (like your phantom) into the automag, top left?
What is that beauty middle right?
Are you using a thread adapter for the DW to fit the phantoms?
*NM. Just watched your dual rod video and you explain it's an AC threaded body (from ASP?). Man that's clever.
Are you sponsored by deadly wind, bro?

Let's see...

Bottom left, that is an old Trracer valve body with back-bottle ASA. I use that with an ICD lever changer, like so.

The middle left Phantom used to have the side-tapped valve with a sideline Stabilizer, now it has the Stabilizer valve body, much cleaner. Here's the passenger side.

The automag, yup, either 13 or 45 vertical.

Middle right is Palmer Super Stocker PP248. Instead of the regular Super Stocker feed, it has a standard Sheridan-style feed tube. It also has a 45 frame. And it is massively fun.

Sponsored by DW? I wish. (DW, if you're reading this, shoot me a message...)

Amazing!

I thought you didn't like the reg/valve body? I thought it was too long?

A vertical 45 cubic inch tank with the Automag? That's both ridiculous and amazing! I love it!

Why does the feed on the Palmer look like one of Apocalypse designs? I mean it looks rad.

+1 for DeadlyWind sponsorship!

I was really hesitant about the stabilizer valve body because of the length! My experience with the 15 round feed from CCI was that it was too long, but the dropout valve was fine. This was in between, and turned out to work just fine.

The 'mag with a vert 45 is surprisingly comfortable. Recent and not-recent pic of the setup.

The Palmer feed is just the same kind you'd find on a PMI-1 or P68SC, standard rock-back brass feed. I trimmed a Phantom feed gate to fit the front so I don't have to mess with the plug in-game.
