Review: Ok here it is the review of the long awaited Tech T L7 bolt for the PMR. I have used this in my PMR for about 6 months know and i can tell you that i ablosutly love this bolt. I am glad i got this thing. I know there have been some people out there that have been having some troubles with this bolt. But i assure you that if you keep tweeking your marker you will get it to run smother than you could ever belive.

I am the only person at the field i play at that has the L7 bolt insalled in their PMR. There is about 5-10 ballers that have the PMR and i let some of them use it for a bit., because they where wondering about the L7 bolt for their self. They all said that the recoil was almost to nothing and that you can barly hear the shot comming from the marker. They also stated that the ropes comming from the marker where a tighter pattern and the accuracy was inproved over the stock bolt.

My marker set up is totaly up graded. There is nothing on the marker that i can do to make it any better i think. I have no trouble getting to that alustrious 28 BPS. And, i tell you i go through alot of paint really quickly without even thinking.

I installed this bolt thinking that what the heck was i thinking. This thing better work or i am going to get all brody on someone. Cause it looks almost nothing like the stock bolt. But it made a beliver out of me. I did just as the people from Tech T stated in their web site and i have had no problems with the bolt, ever. Yea you will need to change the o rings out every now and then but what bolt dosen't.

I will let everyone out there know that if you do decide to get this bolt and you accualy take the time to set up your marker right you will not have a problem. Yes, i did take me awhile to get the Dwell just right becasue of all the up grades i have on my marker i figured it would, but it does work flawlessly. With this installed there is virtualy no kick to the marker. I could not be happier.

Here is some help for all the PMR L7 bolt owner out there that is having some trouble.
1. Check if your ABS ( anti bolt sick) is at its lowest setting or TURN IT OFF if you can.
2. Make sure all the threaded fittings are tight and not spinning in the marker.
3. Use a New Battery it really does help.
4. Make sure you reg. is in good working order.
5. Take the time to adjust your Dwell to its proper setting....I can't stress this enough. It does take about 2-3 tanks of air and some time, but in the long run you will see that you get more out of a tank. (use reballs it is much cheaper than all that paint)
Conclusion: I belive that Tech T out-did their self. This bolt is great and i would recomend that you get one for your PMR. If you want a quieter, faster, and smother runner PMR than you ever ask for.
If you want to have a higher BPS, softer recoil, and quiter shot without upgraging your board then the L7 is the way to go.

Since you got all the kinks worked out how has the bolt worked? Is there much kick (compare it to stock please)? Have you even played a single (full) day with out having to jack with it? Would you still recommend it after all the problems you have had? If the stock bolt is 30+ bps capable, it really isn't necessary for speed... Kick, lower dwell (making it easier to cycle faster) and possibly accuracy(?) seem to be the main point for changing it right? Does it accomplish these things?
