Products Used:
There is no similar product:-)
Marker Setup: Dm6,techt bolt,tadao board,stiff,cp reg,cp cf plug,ccm feedneck,venom trigger,hybrid on off
Strengths: Less orings
More gentle to paint
Saves air
Less kick
Weaknesses: Ballance between lpr hpr and dwell must be found!
You have to pay for it:-)))))))
Review: This bolt/tophat is definitely the best upgrade for the dm6 or any other matrix marker.The bolt and tophat are well made,better than all other original dm6 bolt/tube parts...there are no sharp edges,everything fits together very tight.
Both parts are anodized,so they dont need to be polished(the bolt)Anodizing is also well made,no problems so far.

What is so great on this part:
People complaining about orings...this is the weakest point of the matrix family...some people decide to get an ego,only because of that...With this bolt you will have 4 o-rings less to take care about.And thats kinda lot.Its much easier to find the worn out oring and replace it...and thats wonderfull...

Markert setting:
After you have installed your bolt,your marker will start to work different.The lpr will be responsible for moving the bolt backwards,the hpr is responsible for the forward movement.
Dwell can be set very low(4-10)
The user must find the best ballance between lpr,hpr and dwell.

My gun is running on 3 ½ lpr and 9dwell units...
The marker has less least 15% and virtually kisses the paint...


Stock bolt dwell set at 17(less is not possible) and lpr 1 ½ turns vs techt lpr set at 3 ½ and dwell 9.
Techt equipped marker has less kick and deals more gentle with paint.Thats a hard argument!With this bolt it´s possible to shoot the most brittle paint!!!!No other gun can match the tech t bolt equipped matrix.

You have to tune the whole system,which is not difficult ,but not idiotproof.But its kinda need some time to play with...thats fun:-)

A proper tuned techt bolt will also save some air and will allow you to blast few more pots out...i counted about 5,which is a huge improvement, too.

I gues these 80 bucks are the best investment into your gun...forget stupid fashion stuff like grips and other bogus,which will bring nothing...


+ More air efficient
+ Less kick
+ Less orings
+ Bolt cycles faster
+ More gentle to paint
+ Perfect customer service by techt staff

- Ballance between lpr hpr and dwell must be found
- You have to pay for it:-)

Conclusion: It´s a great step forward to make the perfect even better...i have nothing else to say about:-)
10 out of 10

less kick hs nothing to do with how gentle the bolt is on paint. the reason for that is most likely becaue the bolt is less thn half the size of the stock bolt, thus less mass moving back and forth.

this turns the gn into a blow forward operation, meaning that the forward movement (which also involves moving the ball) is powered by the same high pressure that fires the ball. so if anything, it is just as hard if not harder than the stock bolt especially if you were running you stock bolt at 1.5 turns which is probably around 40-50 psi or less.

i seriously doubt any gun is will be any more gentle on paint than a tuned regular bolted trix running 1.5 on the lpr. the only thing i can think of is an angel 1 with their 60 psi operation and soft face bolt, or possibly a really upped super low pressure timmy or lvl 10 mag.

so really you got most pluses right, but you are probably harder on paint, and higher pressure, and more stress on the noid and internal seals. Thursday, October 4th, 2007 | 4:48 am PST
i didnt say less kick has to do something with beeing gentle on paint...

you are wrong...i tested,i put my finger inside and i felt the was at lest 2times softer with the techt on 3 1/2 lpr...than the stock on 1 1/2...

i think its not fair what you are doing...i took time to help people out and you mark it only because you dont believe one single point of all.

Its the same like if i would say a stronger engine makes the car go faster(total) and the 0-60mph sprint (time) will go down to...
and you would say the 0-60 has nothing to do with the stronger engine...

buy the bolt,test it and then judge...please withdraw your dispute...


ps. the whole system works cant compare (pressure) 1 1/2turns stock with 3 1/2 techt...on lowest dwell (5) the bolt runns so soft,it may get caught by the detends!!!!!

Hey nice review. I have one question though. Did you find the ballance between the lpr,hpr, and dwell. If so can you tell me your setup.
