Review: I bought this bolt because I was having some choping isues, and someone sugested a plastic ( derlin or whatever ) could help. so I decided to try this bolt because of the low cost.
when I went to instal the bolt I noticed that the tolarances are very tight. Geting the pull pin to fit (it's a top cocking spyder) reqired a lot of efort, but was not imposible once the bolt was "broken in". the fit with the bodywas also tight, again not an imposible fit, but it was somtimes dificult to get a hold of and pry out (figuretivly speaking that is)
initaly i was impresed, my choping problem was significantly reduced ( later I would discover that it was not a bolt related isue ) but my cycle rate seemed ( it was hard to be shure ) slightly slower, wich I was ok with because of the leser cycle mass, but eficeny was down compared to my cyclone bolt with the poor man lightning bolt mod. The real deciding factor for me was how this bolt handels chops. After about 150 shots, the bolt caught a ball just right, and jamed. the tight fit of the bolt realy works aginst it here- the paint shell got weged between the bolt and the body, and the marker jamed with the stiker holding the main valve open ( LP setup- it was uggly )
later testing showed the bolt wasn't responsible for the choping, but having a jam like that would take me out of the game for a day ( no words can describe how hard that jam was to get out) so I swiched back to my origanl bolt setup.
Conclusion: This bolt is good for the price- but a little mothers mag polish, some elbow greace, and a pair of plyers will get you a lot further if your willing to put the time and effort into a little self moding.
