Review: I'm going to give my assessment on this bolt, and address some of the issues I have heard other people complaining about.

First off, I personally didn't notice much of a difference between this bolt and the stock one. There was no significant change in weight, gun kick, accuracy, or speed.

Second, why is everyone complaining about the anno rubbing off? It is normal wear and tear. I have a local proshop owner, with whom I've discussed this subject, and he pulled out a box of old used bolts that he had. They all had the anno wearing off, and some even had grooves carved into the bolt from the ball detent (My stock bolt is grooved). I played with this bolt once a week for a good six months and the anno wore off in maybe 2 weeks time. I kept playing with it and the inside of my gun is fine... not a scratch in it. If anything, wearing down the anno or slowly wearing a groove will make your bolt cycle smoother due to less friction being present.

Thirdly, as far as it getting stuck, I encountered this problem and it is part of what made me stop using this bolt. However, when going through my gear the other day, I noticed that the bolt wasnt laying flat on the table. Upon further inspection I noticed the shaft was bent a bit, and was able to straighten it by hand. Threw it back into the gun, and voila, it cycled smoothly without sticking.

Lastly, the issue of the bolt flying out the back of the gun. I had this problem once, and it was during a heavy rain so i suspect that the water may have made things slippery and that contributed to the bolt launching out the back of the gun. This made me uncomfortable and I stopped using it, but I now have to wonder if the shaft of the bolt being bent may have somehow contributed to that.

I'm playing in 2 weeks and I think I'm going to give this bolt another try... I'll update this review and let you know if all the major issues have been fixed with straightening the shaft.
Conclusion: Not a bad bolt, but not worth buying to replace a stock bolt.
