Products Used:
ANS quick pull bolt, stock cocker bolt, black magic venturi bolt
Marker Setup: '02 Cocker raw body, anodized by Bloen Customs (see my home page)
Kapp valve, stainless screw kit, IVG, front block, and 15 deg. ASA
ANS ram and LPR

Strengths: Light weight, low friction, looks slick, smaller profile pin (versus stock)
Weaknesses: O rings on back are easily lost, heavier than all-delrin bolts
Review: When I first tried this bolt on my gun, I already had a well broken in ANS ram on the marker. There was so little frictionthat with the gun degassed and the hammer cocked, you could tilt the marker back and the bolt would fall back under it's own weight. I was very impressed with how smooth this bolt is. The stainless bolt retaining pin has a smaller profile than the big clunky stock one. It also doesn't make contact with the sides of you back block, only the inside of the hole. This helps protect your ano from scratches. One drawback is the O rings on the back of the bolt for grip. They look good, and provide a nice tactile grip, but seem to just disappear. I think they slip off too easily
Conclusion: It's a good, low friction bolt that will reduce cycle times and internal wear. I have one on both of my cockers. If you want to reduce waer and prolong the life of your cocker, and get a performance increase, this is a good choice.
