If he rips my legs off, I'll bite him to death.
If he rips my head off, I'll stare him to death.
And if he gouges my eyes out, I'll curse him from beyond the grave.

I dont think youve seen this one in person...you might be thinking of my brother's old Phantom, which had a standard black/blue anno. Im pretty sure I havnt seen you face to face since before I got this one...I think.
This one has a rare 4 color experimental finish. Black, Dk Blue, Lt. Blue & Silver. Its my understanding that there was only a few batches of parts done like this - apparently its a real pain in the butt to do a 4 color blend, so they never bothered doing any more. I personally only know of one other person with another Phantom from the same anno batch.

How long ago was that? I was still living in the Bay Area, so it had to be like 2007 or somewheres around there.
Anyways, awesome. Hit me up if you ever play an event down here in LA!

My pump at the time was an old PMI-2. I got the Phantom in summer of '09.
Regardless, this Phantom is certainly my favorite marker Ive ever owned.

Oh yeah, the other one was open class right? wasn't it three color though? Blue/Silver/Black?

It been awhile, so let me get you caught up on the cool story behind this particular Phantom...
I was pump-less for awhile & was down to a single working gun - a slightly "upped" Ion. Then, while General at a TAW game my Ion got stolen - right out of the CP.
I was...angry...to say the least.
Im a working guy with a family & small paycheck, getting a new gun might be an issue. Not impossible, but certainly not part of the fairly minimal paintball portion of the family budget.
Then, about 2 months later I get a large box in the mail from an address I dont recognize. I havnt bought anything, am not expecting anything from anyone.
In the box is THIS Phantom...along with a note saying something along the lines of "it sucks your gun was stolen, so here have this one" signed by members of Special Ops forum pump club - Legato, Droop, etc.
Blew my freakin' mind...made my wife cry (in a good way).
So now I show off my Baby every chance I get & use it to bring paint-soaked doom to all who stand before me. Good times.

I know how theft is, my snowboard was stolen the first day I had it on the slopes. It really sucks.
I'm glad it all worked out!
BTW if you brother ever needs some cash, I wouldn't mind taking that one off his hands
