Kick reduction, greater efficiency, good choice of materials.
There are lighter bolts out there but.....
Picked this up for $40 because I didn't have anything else to spend $40 on. Wanted to see what a difference it made.
I specifically sought out the Firebolt even though I was aware there were lighter bolts out there, but I have heard several instances of these bolts snapping or breaking . I figured Smart Parts is not going to sacrifice reliability to shave a few grams off, and a few grams won't make a huge difference anyway. I'd rather have the reliability as I've never heard of a firebolt breaking. It was a good choice. I noticed an immediate kick reduction, which is exactly what I was expecting out of any new bolt. It's sooo much lighter than the stock. The gun shoots smooth as butter now with no muzzle rise or jumping around. I was also able to drop my dwell as a result of to bolt being a much lighter weight. The anno does rub off slightly, but to not expect anno to rub off during cycling is silly. Doesn't affect performance any of course.
Would strongly reccomend. If you want a new bolt, but are concerned with the bolt's reliability and can't make up your mind, this is the bolt for you. 9/10 since there are lighter bolts out there, but again, this is a tradeoff to reliability, and how much of a practical difference a few grams makes.
