Yeah, thats good, wevo prices it looks like to me.

If your buying new (those are the new prices) I HIGHLY suggest getting a stock with the marker. You won't be able to aim and pump well without one, besides, when you get it with the gun, you'll have the anno match.

you def. want the stock, when i had my phantom i didn't get one and then had to look everywhere to find one in matching anno. You can't put two shots in the same place without it.

Yeah, its really impossible to pump and aim consistently without a stock. I thought the same as you, I cheaped out and didn't buy a stock with the gun, I played once and I was like wow I NEED a stock, luckily for me I was able to find one that was a pretty similar green for something like $20 on sale later, but it doesn't look nearly as nice as one that would have the silver acidwash like my gun.

Remember , you don't have to hold the phantom with the stock to your shoulder when you're moving or running, you can easily hold the weight of the gun in one hand , or hold the gun in front of you as you run.

Heh, Phantom's are the top of line, well other than Carter Buzzards, but those are damn rare, and they don't make em anymore. If you want to save money, don't buy that Clear parts kit. And don't get the adjustable stock, get the L-stock, I've heard they're more comfortable.

Go to Blowfish's website. Watch there vid's. None of those guys use a stock! It's crazy! But they kick arse!

Oh and pm otter. His pricing might be better than wevo's.

I don't make them. I just sell them to those in need of a pump to enrich the pump community with good decent players!

do you guys think wevo is a trust worthy guy?

i'm not getting this baby until 4-6 weeks later.

Yeah, i order accesories from him. He just doesn't stock it and realize each of these is hand made by one person only. Also they are produces in batches of 5 at a time to save on anno pricing! So what they are saying is it will be 1-4 weeks before he batches that color! It's very worth it though as he does amazing work!

That's OK, one of mine is a team gun and will only be produced for our team. The other has to be sent to another anno guy to do the color I want.......there won't ever be another one of those produced :) I'll put up pics of my team anno job soon!
