1 teflon ring came off
Review: i got this for $15 for my back up Spyder Imagine, and i got what i payed for.

first the good:
-cheap
-the bolt is lighter than stock, so their is less kick by a noticable margin. this helps your accuracy a little.
-the teflon rings eliminate reciver wear, and make the bolt action smooth.
-the rubber cusion sealer thing on the face of the bolt lessens the impact of the bolt on a partly chambered ball, so it reduces chops when your using thick shelled paint. (with thin shelled turny paint it chops as much as the stock bolt)

the bad:
-it reduced my effeciencey alot. my gun chronoed at 280fps +/-5 with the stock bolt. didnt touch the velocity and installed the Dytrix piece. with the Dytrix bolt it went down to about 215fps +/-3. the main function of a bolt is to increase effeciencey, so this is very bad.
-the rear teflon ring came off. it never touches the reciver much anyway so i didnt really care. still it should not do that.
-the screw holding on the cocking handle and the pin that connects the bolt to the striker are held in with threadlocker instead of a set screw. problem with this is, oil the bolt and the threadlock desolves getting all though the back of the reciever, which i had to clean frequently.
Conclusion: I put up with the little quirks for a while because it did have some benifits. but once i got a chrono and found out it was hurting my effeciency i took it out and put the stocker back in. so the fact that i wont use it means i cant reccomend it at all. there are better bolts for only 5 or 10 dollars more.
