that right there you can get for 220 from http://www.archerec.com/modules.php?...=viewtopic&t=4 or go to whitewolfairsmithing.com and they can match the price from acherec

$300 is higher than the msrp

oh go to the site i pointed out. I know you'd have to buy a horizontal breech and a 10 or 15 round stick feed with cap. you might have to buy a whole new body, i only play vsc so i don't know.

you'd have to spend over 35 for it new so you'd be best off buying it with the horiz. feed already unless you would like to play with a hopper sometimes.

to switch from vert to horiz, youd need to own both recievers.. then you just unscrew it, put the guts in the other one and screw that one on.. not hard...

All you have to do is take out the valve, bolt, and main spring and put them into the new body. You would have to do this anyways if you wanted to clean. Here is a picture of my old phantom with a stock class body next to a phantom with a vf body on it.

ok, but I haven't even got my phantom yet (should be another month til I do) and I haven't even seen one of these things in Utah. Does the back unscrew or something? How does it break down?

if it's like the trracer, (i think so) you unscrew the screws that hold the trigger frame on the body. then the valve can come off the body, and everything off the trigger and such.

step 4, now you can take the pump arm off.. super simple.. you jsut pull it down..

then you can slide the reciever off the back.. oh yeah.. take the barrel off before ya try to take the pump off.. cuz it wont work if ya dont.

step 5, now you can slide the guts outta the reciever... thats all there is too it.. now if you were going to switch from horiz feed to vert feed, you would take all these steps so far then take the vert feed, put the guts in it.. put on the pump arm, then slide the reciever onto the back... now heres the part youll wish you hand an extra hand for.. you have to hold everything to gether and in place.. then line up the trigger frame and put the thumb screws back in...
