You can take off the pump return spring (the exposed one on the arm). If your going to do that its best to do it now, before you get used to the pump stroke. Also, it accepts autococker springs, so you can change out your springs. Just put in a lighter mainspring, and then a lighter valve spring to compensate for the lost tension. Personally, I like the stroke on my phantom a little stiff, thats just me though.

Pump the action a good 3 or 4,000 times for your gun really get broken in. You would be amazed at how smooth the action is on a well used phantom.

Also, you need to lube the pump arm. I use vasoline, you can by buy the lipcare kind that comes in a convenient squeeze tube, and its still 100% petroleum jelly. Just take off your trigger frame, and run a bead of it in the groove where the arm goes. Makes a HUGE difference. Don't use it to lube your internals though. Also, like the other guy said, once its broken in, they're butter. Just sit there and pump it in your spare time.

IMO the gun performs better with the spring holding the pump closed. I found that I was loosing a lot of velocity if the bolt wasnt fully sealed.
