Review: Ordered by phone from Bandit and recieved it in 5 days. i couldn't wait to try it out, but since i live in the city i couldn't really go out and shoot it. i don't know, but there's something about cops and real guns that make my imagine pale in comparison. so i had to wait. when i did use it, i noticed an immediate difference. it was a lot more accurate than the stock. i was shooting 1.5 year old blue streaks and marbs. the blue streaks were no comparison to the marbs obviously, but they shot about a 12" spread from25 yards or so. with the marbs there was no spread! just one right on top of the other. beautiful! it's a very consistant bolt. out of 2000 balls that day, i didn't break one. i ran the hopper dangerously low a couple of times and didn't experience any blowback problems. i took the gun apart to clean and inspect it after playing and no scratching. a big relief. i was worried that the stock would have scratched up the insides.

some things i didn't know about the bolt:

-they make some with o rings and some w/o. o rings helps reduce blowback, but won't shoot quite as fast. if you don't have to shoot 15 balls/sec (and if you are playing w/ an imagine you probably don't want to anyway) then get the o ring version.

-they have a high pressure and low pressure version. this speaks for itself...if you're set up for low pressure, get the low pressure version. if you're not, get the high pressure version. even though the guy that developed this bolt told me that if you're opperating with a bandit high flow air valve, then it's best to use the low pressure bolt. don't know's just better for some reason.

that's about it. well worth the $50! if you upgrade nothing else in your gun, this upgrade is the one! stop scratching the internals of your gun and sacrificing accuracy and fun. this bolt is the only one that should be used in the imagine!
Conclusion: Great quality bolt!
10 out of 10
