Review: Lets start off with the ordering process. I called Todd from TechT to get my bolt and it was a very pleasant experience. he was friendly and took care of my order asap. I originally placed the order on the site, but put in the wrong shipping address. Todd fixed the shipping address and got my bolt out right away.

I received the bolt a few days later and it was sent in a padded envelope. The bolt itself was in a standard paintball blister pack.

I open the pack right away and the first thing i noticed was how light the bolt was. Here is the bolt, bolt stop and back plug.

One thing that was missing from the package was instructions to install the bolt, instead there was a sticker on the package that directs you to the website to get the instructions.

The bolt itself was very easy to install. I took the gun apart and removed the current bolt (a TechT L6) and the stock bolt stop. Following the instructions online I lubed the tail plug in the right place and slid it into the firecan. Fit no problem. I then used the flat head screw driver and the 1/8 Allen key to hand tighten the plug in place.

I lubed up the bolt stop and slid that into the firecan with the flat face facing the front of the marker. Then I lubed the bolt up good, all the o-rings and the surface of the bolt and slid that in the firecan.

Everything went together great and I had no issues.

Now time for some air. I aired up the marker and voilà no leaks, always a plus. I lowed the Dwell to 10 and my psi was set to 120. Test fired a few times and everything worked great. There was ZERO kick. I thought it would be hard to improve on the L6 but TechT did.

One of the concerns I had was with the SP 360 QEV. I have tested other bolts with a similar design and at high speed firing the bolt would not go back into the firecan. I had no issues at all with the L7.

Over all I am very impressed with the L7 bolt and TechT. The only improvement I could see would be to send out a print instruction sheet with the bolt.
Conclusion: Awesome Bolt... With some initial test results I gained 126 shots per tank on a 45/45 and the gun has NO kick.
10 out of 10

how is the efficiency compared to the L6?
and hopefuly you made a typo on the shots per tank.

No typos...

I got 1050 shots on a 45/45 with the L6 and 1176 with the L7. That is 126 more shots with the L7 bolt.

You won't get any more bps.
