Review: I upgraded from the stock bolt and was immediately impressed with the difference in how much more quite this bolt is. It is also super smooth. I have had it for 3 years and I can still take the pin out and turn the marker upside down and it will fall out. Accuracy wise, this bolt hangs with the best of them. Coupled with a DYE barrel the bolt is going to hold it's own against any other product out there. It's attractive milling was also a plus since I plan on getting the orracle cocking rod.
The only weakness I can think of is that I hace noticed some wear on the aluminum back where it comes into contact with the body. It isn't so much that I feel like it is taking away from it's efficiency since it took 3 years for me to notice it and in all likely hood it has been caused more by me taking to bolt out of the marker to clean.
So for that I gave it a 9.
Conclusion: Great upgrade if you can afford it. I like to keep with what works and I trust WGP products.
I haven't been let down by this bolt yet and would recommend it to anyone.
