Ok i got my bolt on friday thanks to fast shipping and must i say i was really impressed from the start just seeing how small the bolt was and everything.
So i start by taking out my old bolt (37g) and put the new bolt (10g) in, after i had the techt bolt in i realized that the old bolt fits in the the case/box the new one came in so its kinda like a storage box for the old which i will never use again.
So then i follow the directions on the techt site and get it to cycle then i go outside and put paint in it and start to shoot i then got it to cycle at what seemed a decent speed (i have no chrono on hand but i was shooting with my friend who had his gun with him also which is chronoed around 280-285 and mine was shooting the about the same speed it seemed like so i am assuming it is shooting somewhere around 270-290)
once i got that done i shot at a target about 50 feet away after emptying a full hopper there was a splat with about a 6 in diameter which was about twice as good as the old bolt so that there tells me that i have better consistency (yes i was using the same paintballs and same barrel and barrel bore when i used the techt bolt and the stock bolt) i also was astonished at how little kick it has even that i havent tuned the gun you can barely feel the kick(with paint) only if you are looking for it without paint you cannot feel any kick. and the reason i am saying you cant feel the kick is because there will always be kick in a paintball gun because there is reciprocating mass.
after shooting 2 pods and a hopper (about 480 paintballs) and a few dryfires i only lost 1200 psi on a 68 cu tank which is much better efficiency the my old bolt so by those numbers i should be getting around 1800 shots off a 68/4500 from an untuned bolt now there may be some slight error in my calculations so once i get the time to go shoot some more paint and chrono it i will tell you what i am getting for efficiency
This is a very good bolt, very little kick, very efficient, and really quite simply to tune i highly recommend this bolt for anyone who doesn't want any noticeable kick and a very effiecnt matrix
10 out of 10
