Review: When I got this bolt, I was new to paintball and ordered the high pressure version (big mistake) I noticed my distance decrease. Since then I have increased the flow of the gun (the bandit bolt now shoots further than the stock) and been very careful to keep fps below 300. This bolt does not chop balls if you keep the fps down. I have chronoed at close to 400fps and still not chopped, but have noticed a chop every now and the when i was first using it. The pin that holds the hammer came loose and the retaining screw stripped (I must have overtightenned) I put a screw through the thing and the pin stays in place now.
My gun now shoots 295 fps. The paint does not curve. I've used seconds, up to inferno, and this bolt is not paint picky. The cup on the end serves its purpose, noticed mostly by the next to impossibility of chopping paint. I can stand 50 ft. from a target and repeatedly overlap my paint splatter.
I plan to buy the low pressure version and the bandit spyder valve #92 and will update my review then.
Be really careful not to overtighten your set screw, and make sure to adjust the catch pin so that it is as far in the hammer as possible without interfering with your spring. The nylon is soft, so a mistake could be a $45 one. If you do this, which should be considered neglect and/or abuse (nullifying the warranty), you'll have to drill a hole through the bolt and into the catch pin. Insert a screw larger than your drill hole. Use a roto-zip or hack saw to cut the excess of the screw. Sand the screw and swelling down so that the bolt is round, smooth, and fits in the chamber/ or just order a knew one like I plan to do.
Note: Be sure to get the low pressure version. You want low pressure.
Conclusion: This bolt is accurate, quiets your fire, increases your distance (if you lower your operating pressure/ or order the proper one probably), won't chop paint, and is not picky. I like it.
