Review: The Lightning bolt is a very good bolt. When i got it i was anxious to put it in and try it out! I read the instructions carefully to make sure i didn't mess up anything! But then i came across the part that said, Must apply lube (obvious) but still, i didn't have any... So, i had to wait about a week until i FINALLY got some. That's why i think it should come with like a 0.5 ounce tube of shocker lube. Anyways, I put it in, and it was great... I shot it, their was about a 20% kick reducement. It felt really good. I also would look down the feedneck when i was shooting air, and it looks really cool to see a golden flash! I was also able to lower my dwell a couple clicks, which saved me some extra air! The bolt is very quiet, when shot, it doesn't push out as much air as the stock bolt.. This also makes it sort of quieter. The only bad thing is the Cost... i got it for $55 (with shipping)
Conclusion: Start at 5 (which is average), add one for cool color, 6, add 1 for dwell, 7, add 1 for the weight, 8, add 1 for noise reduction, 9, add one more for air efficiency, now were at 10... minus 1 for cost, now were at 9, minus 0.5 for no lube!!!! Now were at 8.5, Since i love the bolt... Il just round it up to a 9.
9 out of 10

if you own an ion you should already have shocker lube of your own. you shouldnt drop the review score just because you dont have the right tools nessary to maintain your marker.

How can you not have Dow 33/Shocker lube and you have a Ion???

That's almost insane... have your Ion up'd to the hilt and no lube???
