Review: I got the fire bolt for Christmas this year. I decided to go ahead and put in in because i didn't really have anything else to do. I disassembled my gun and took out the stock bolt and i never really realized how heavy the stock bolt is until then. I guess it isn't really that heavy, rather than it's pretty heavy and the fire bolt is really light. In my hands just by guessing, the fire bolt feels like it's about 1/3 or 1/4 the weight of the stock bolt it is amazing. So anyway, I lowered my dwell to 15 (not extremely low but I didn't have enough air to see how low I could get my dwell) and I lowered my input pressure to around 160 ish. I put a hopper full in my halo and went into my bedroom. It was raining so i just opened my window and shot from inside of my house. Anyway, I fired a few shots and I have to say I was very impressed. It has no kick. I can't say I have tested any other after market bolt but it have almost no kick what so ever. So i had it on semi and it was almost time to leave to go to my family reunion so I let her rip. And even at the highest rates of fire I was hitting-probably guessing around 15 bps-it was rock steady and never moved. I love it so far. The only thing that I can't say that I can tell you is how efficient it is. I had around 500-550 PSI left in my tank and I shot the hopper then just dry fired the air I had left. But from what I've seen so far in it I am very pleased.
Conclusion: This is a very good product that is well made and from a good company in my opinion, Smart Parts, and I would recommend it. It is the best deal out there for the money. It may not be quite as good as the L6 of L7 according to some, but i believe that due to the price, you can't really find a better deal.
