THE-SHOOTIST Anyone chubbin' like me for this?
mailmanmike Since Monday! That's more than 4 hours though, so according to those cialis ads I should see my doctor.
tlane77 I think for a non-chemical chubby it's 6 hours before its time to see a doctor. So you should be good for another couple hours.
splattttttt I wasn't goin to google "chubbin" because I assumed it had to do with fat. The lard type, not the fun stuff. But what ever feelings Jeff's experiencing, then they must be of the fun like stuff...

Well, we finally got a new 2006 Ghost for resale here. I ordered one directly from Colin last APRIL! The plastic external parts are gone. All metal. We ordered this one with a stock which bolts on beneath the grip frame.

I'll be testing it shortly.

Carter, excellent review and pics. I linked to it on our forum.

I have owned a grey ghost for over a year now, and it is my favorite marker.
It was interesting to read this whole thread and see the doubt about the future of lapco. 10 years later, they still exist, and you can order a new grey ghost from Hustle Paintball.

Carter's original review was very thorough. The metal feed block takes away lots of the negatives. I don't think Carter gave enough credit to the barrel and the trigger/frame. I never had a problem with the phantom trigger until I used my GG. It is an amazing trigger and stock grip. It is also wonderful to have a barrel that is money with all paint sizes. I use freaks with my phantom, and it is liberating to get rid of that step. My biggest negative is preserving the cool anno. The pump arm scratchs the anno, and I wasn't smart enough to prevent it. I am always a little worried about scratching the mirror-like anno with sand and dirt etc, but it hasn't happened yet.

If you are considering this marker, this is my take-home advice:
If you like the looks and you want a VSC setup, this is a tremendous buy. I love it, and I want another. If you want to fiddle with the amazing variety of nelson setups, get a phantom.

Edit: Carter suspected the body was ac threaded. It is not ac threaded. IDK what type of thread it is.

They are spyder threaded. And geniuses at lapco don't really offer small bore barrels for this gun unless things have changed.

Still I agree, the ergonomics on the ghost among other things put most other nelsons to shame. At the price these go for used, they are great buy.

Love it. Just remember to keep checking those brass screws aren't coming undone while you're on the field.
