Look under the trigger guard for the serial number. This is a 'Unibody' Phantom, circa 1990. I could give you a closer date of manufacture by seeing if the internals are 'anti-kink' which didn't show up in these guns as a factory-stock feature until late 1991/early 1992. Also known as the "Tournament" model as it sports the 11" barrel. The door to the Ram-Line grip is missing. It appears to be well used, and will give many more years of faithful service. The barrel diameter should be in the .690 area, which will be problematical when using modern paint as it's size can sometimes be sub- .680. (You'll have roll-outs)
Also, these internals will differ from modern Phantoms. Velocity will be adjusted by a long hex-key inserted through the barrel into the bolt. This too could be problematical, as the jet of gas will come directly from the valve tube to the ball without diffusion. The more "Modern" Phantoms have a shorter valve tube and a 'Tuned Port Compensator' bolt which will direct gas to the edges of the ball. Modern paint has a thinner, more brittle shell. Older style internals sometimes are hard on this paint, and you'll get 'Launch Breaks', or paint breaking in the breech due to the undiffused gas jet literally blowing a hole through the paintball.
Mike loves to see these come back home for love. If you telephone him, and wish to send him the gun, he could install for you the newest version of internals and a threaded adapter so you could put a hopper/stick feed on this and play with it. This service won't cost much, or you could order the parts and do it yourself.

Since it's missing the door to the grip, the feed adapter and it appears from the photo the front sight pin, I'd say $125.00, max. Also, what is the serial number? It is possible that it could be an early CCI framed example, which would increase the value marginally. Versions prior to this did not have a back-bottle adapter, and were on a Crosman frame.

Where your thumb is on the second picture is where the serial number is on Phantoms.
