Review: To start with, this bolt did not fit my 2k2 body by Aim, the end did not fit into the body itself.
(I did order the 2k2 style bolt)
I ended up having to shave it a little, which did not affect's its performance because its just for looks.

After that it was smooth sailing for a while, the bolt worked pretty well, hard to say if it was as accurate as my last bolt, I didn't have a chance to compare them together however what made me go back to my last bolt is the fact the PIN BROKE.

It was not very sturdy...After examining what had happened when my marker stop shooting normally, the PIN snapped as I was making a move while shooting down the field.

Conclusion: For the price of this bolt, it should not break while putting it through normal use, expect it to break if you like to shoot your timmy.

It seems like they do not last very long, and I haven't seen replacement parts for the orange bolt...And replacing the pin with a metal one only compromises the lightweight construction, in other words it isn't worth it...maybe they could have made a carbon fiber pin?

I'm giving it a 3, if the pin was stronger I'd give it a 9 or a 10.

Dispute:
After this recent problem myself, I contacted the company on the bolt pin. No questions asked, they sent me a brand new aluminum pin along with tools to install it. Seriously, Orange Paintball has some of the best customer service I've ever seen, and the pin they sent me will never snap.
