Review: FIRST IMPRESSIONS
When i got this bolt, it looked super nice and weighed practicly nothing. The stock bolt feels like it weighs 8 pounds compared to this one.

INSTALATION
Obviously it wasn't very hard, it's a bolt.

JUST SHOOTING IT
I took it out to shoot a coupe minutes later. I set my dwell to 13 clicks and I was running at around 140 -150 psi. (I didn't have a crono so my cousin shot his and I tried to match) I could still feel a little kick but not much at all, especialy compared to the stock. I only shot a pod through so I don't have efficancy data yet. Overall, it felt like a better bolt.

ON THE FEILD
I can't remember the exact, but I think I ended up cronoing at 140 psi. I was either that or 160 psi. I can't remember. When you are shooting it on the field, I couldn't feel any kick at all. I figured from then that I was getting anywhere from 1500 - 1600 shots per 68 4500 fill. Not too bad at all. Feels great on the feild.

EATING MY ORINGS
This was the one bad thing about this bolt. When I was taking it out once, I noticed that the tail oring closest to the front was all torn up, it acually had gashes in it. It was a proble though, I just replaced it with the stock bolt's tail oring. Then a while later, I noticed that it did it again. This time I didn't have anymore orings so I went to my local menards and found one that was a match. I put it on and lubed it up and havn't had a problem since.
Conclusion: Overall, a great bolt. I gave it a 9.2 (9 rounded) because nothing is perfect and the oring thing.

I have never had a problem with it eating o rings. I think that u might be having an oil problem. Try using other brands of oil and see if that helps. I have been using a dye lube that has held up great. I have owed this bolt for about three months and play every other Sunday. I have not had to replace an o ring yet. I hope this helps with your problem.
