hey guys, im totally new to this air gun hobby and im really looking forward to it. i still have to figure how to "zero" in my sights/scope. neways gona get to the point. if anyone knows, i was wondering if it is possible to mod a phantom 500 (500fps) with pieces from a phantom1000 (1000fps), purpose being to try and make it more powerful if not as powerful as it's bigger brother. i think it might be possible after looking at some of the part diagrams, i have already taken it apart, and lubed most of it. would it be as simple as replacing the 500 spring with a 1000 spring?? or am i just being a noob :P?

much appreciated if some1 could point me in the right direction

I am trying to do the same thing with my .22 cal phantom 500. here is a link that describes how to do it. this guy installed a phantom 1000 piston and got an extra 300 fps. i assume if you upgrade the spring and piston you will get even better results. I cant wait to try this on mine. now I just have to find a 1000 spring and piston.

here is the link: http://losttourist-losttourist.blogspot ... guide.html

good luck.

PS. if you find a supplier for these parts in canada can you let me know?
