My phantom is my favorite gun that I have ever used. It is very accurate, quiet, easy to maintain, light, customizable, and incredibly reliable.
There is nothing worse than getting to the field after spending quite a bit of money and not being able to play. I have never had any problems like that with my phantom. It is the one gun that I plan on keeping for as long as I am able to play. It is the most fun gun I have ever used. Not to mention, the respect you get when using a phantom is amazing. Sure, some players may be tossing out ropes of paint at me. But when I pop out for a second a shoot them in the mask with one shot.. it's a great feeling. The only down fall to the gun is that it is bored very large. This can be fixed with a hundred dollar + barrel kit OR you can spend a few dollars on detent rings and they work just as well. The detend rings and a trigger shoe are the only recommended upgraded that I have. The trigger shoe makes the trigger much more comfortable. I also have an undercocking kit as well which I love. And I had a stock that I tried out once and immediately took off. It deducted from how fast I was able to move the gun around and it didn't help my accuracy at all.

Pros: Small, Light, Autotrigger
Cons: Pump Action. Stock barrel lacks widgets/detents
I won a VSC phantom for taking first place in NWOSC series. I used my Freeflow Lotus pump 'cocker throughout the event. I find the Sheridan design to be superior to the Nelsons. The majority of Sheridan's feel more solid, and I like how they generally feel like my "normal" marker in my hands.

With that said, the Phantom is by no means a bad marker. It's solidly built, has a simplistic design, and gets the job done. The biggest gripe I have would have to be the way you adjust velocity (with a rod, down the barrel). Otherwise, the Phantom is a solid, proven performer that doesn't break the bank to own.

On one last note, I would like to point out that the VSC doesn't really fall into the true "Stock Class" marker category. It has an auto-trigger. You'll find some old-timers that'll gripe about that...

The cci detent kit helps, but is not as good as a freak stealth barrel

Component Concepts Incorporated Phantom (VSC) What can I say. Have owned at least 8 phantoms and have loved all of them. Light and reliable, can't do much better for stock class.

Cons: Takes some getting used to if you dont use a stock
I got a phantom as my first pump gun. I like that it is very light, small, and easy to use. I also liked that you can change how its set up. My recommendation if your just getting into pump would be to go with maybe a sniper first since stock class can be a bit frustrating if you have never played pump before. The biggest difference is you may not have anything resting in your shoulder to help you aim and steady the gun, which was one of the hardest parts of switching for me.

No need to upgrade anything, the stock barrel is awesome maybe add some detents and your set. I shot a few rounds over the crono and it was +/- 3 FPS using 12 gram co2 I was impressed. It is efficient, I shot about 45 rounds with a 12 gram powerlette. It is lightweight, you can run all day long and not know your carrying anything. I was shooting it in my backyard and I had a paper plate stapled to a piece of wood for a target, set at 90 feet away and using RPS Marbs and 12 gram co2, all of the 30 rounds I fired did not miss the plate, so about a 10 inch group at 90 feet. If you are looking for a stock class gun, the Phantom will satisfy.
