Review: Bought this bolt because I was looking to upgrade my SP8 from bone stock into something more impressive, and after doing some research, i decided on going with the new hollowpoint bolt. From what I'd seen, it was easily a match for the L7 bolt, and not as much of a pain in the ass as the Orange nano + upgrade.

I installed it, and a trinity QEV, lubed it up well, and snagged a bag of paint to test fire. I was impressed with how little kick my marker had, and how consistently it shot. with my input @150PSI and my dwell set to 4, i expected some pretty big velocity fluctuations... and though i did see some, I did just install a new reg, so it could have just as easily been the reg.

I'm also impressed by how much more efficient, overall, my marker is. Running an 88/3 tank, i got close onto about 1000 shots out of my stock setup. Now i'm getting in the neighborhood of 12-1300, which can make all the difference sometimes.

Conclusion: Personally, I'd recommend this bolt to anyone looking to upgrade their ion or SP8. it's crazy light, and not that expensive, relatively speaking. it's much more effective with a QEV installed though, so if you get one, i'd also recommend grabbing a QEV if you don't already have one
