Review: I bought this bolt off of someone on pbnation since apm has a machining contract with another company and cannot use their CNC machines for the bolts. I have a dragun tes as my backup marker, and the stock bolt on that thing is horrible and scratches up the inside alot. I needed a new bolt.

I didn't want to spend much money, since my dragun is my backup, and I found this bolt for sale, new for $20. These bolts have great reviews so I bought it. Out of the box, I noticed the bolt's sleek look and very light weight. I transferred the cocking pin from my dragun's stock bolt, cleaned the oil out of my gun, and slid this puppy in there.

I first gassed up my gun and dry fired a hundred shots or so. I could feel that there was less kick with the gun. Next came the paint. I filled up my egg and fired all 180+ balls as fast as I could. Eyes off - no chops. With the stock bolt, my tes had a problem with uncocking at high rates of fire. No more with the tigershark. I also noted about a 7 fps velocity increase.
Conclusion: Need a new bolt? Buy this if you can find it.

So Apm doesn't sell these anymore?

check their website, but at the time I got mine that was true.
