Review: I bought the Orange bolt more out of necessity than want, but lets not drone on that! I loved the fact that it was a little shorter than the standard Alias bolt. This means that I can actually insert the bolt into the gun and line up the pin with the hammer notch by looking at it instead of the usual guessing game. This advantage also turned out to be a disadvantage. This gap also means that dirt can enter the moving parts a little easier than with the standard bolt.
After inserting the Orange it seemed that my rate of fire was a little higher. I don't know why and frankly it does not make sense to me. Surely a couple of grams does not influence this and after all the rate of fire is electronically regulated.
The bling-bling on the back of the bolt is pretty neat but it does nothing for performance.
To me any money spent on looks is a waste. Who care's what it looks like when you turn that guy into Xmas tree.
Some rumors are doing the rounds that this bolt snaps, but I have no proof so I won't take it serious.

UPDATE:
After about one year of use the bolt did crack! I found this top be unacceptable. I wrote to Orange to find out what can be done and I am awaiting their responce.
Conclusion: Not a bad buy!

what exposed working parts does it have o-rings, so does the stock one.

he means the slot in the ram tube is now exposed when the bolt is foreword, so that you can see the ram. the stock bolt is long enough that even with it foreword, it still sticks out behind the bolt pin enough to cover over the ram slot. i can see how more dirt or debris might get in, but when i got my timmy it was filthy and it still fired fine so i doubt it makes much difference.
