Review: I've been trying all the aftermarket bolts, and I have to say that I am very happy with the performance of the Lightening Bolt. My Lucky bolt keeps popping off my boltstop oring, and like many othere Im just not thirilled with my orange bolt. I saw this new bolt about a month ago and figured I'd give it a shot. (no pun intended)

When it arrived I greased it up, and slapped it in the Ion. Instantly I could hear and feel a difference. It makes the gun sound alittle more "hollow". It makes sense seeing that it is the most hollow of all the bolts. The kick was greatly reduced. You could still feel the gun cycling a little, but I would say you feel the cycle, but not kick. Its hard to explain.
Over the chrono my shots were very consistent. More consistent than any other bolt I've tested. (+-3 on average) Thats better than my cocker.

I got about 1700-1800 shots on a 68/4500. Very nice.
Conclusion: Overall the bolt seemed very solid, very light, and performed awsome. I highly recommend this bolt over any other. Its what I am using in my Ion full-time now.
10 out of 10
