Spring tension is too strong
Review: This bolt is super expensive for what it is. I bought it for around $50. When I first got it, I still had chops. There was still a large amount of rollback. The spring, even after a 2000-3000 shot break in period, was strong. The tension of the spring does not allow the bolt to move back fast enough to prevent a chop.

I have modded the bolt, and now I do not chop. I have increased the length of the bolt by filing behind the little peg that sits in the ram. This allows me to have the bolt go into the breach about 1/4" when it is closed. This prevents ball rollback, and that is needed when using a forcefeed loader. I have had only a few chops since doing this.

The material is very weak, and the bolt is all wore out. The scratches into the bolt are hideous, and have wore off a little of the annodizin on the inside of my breach.
Conclusion: I would recommend getting the RAS version, so you don't have to file. I think it is worth about $25. It is better than stock bolt, which is average.
