Review: Well first off, his was my first after market bolt for my proto matrix rail.i have had some solenoid problems and bolt problems.i ordered both off the internet. i installed the new solenoid and the bolt was on back order. it came in a couple days later and i opened it and lubed it(doesn't come lubed) and installed it. It took mere seconds to put it in. I had to wait a couple of weeks to get air so i couldn't wait to shoot it. So being the impatient person i am, i hooked it up to an air compressor that runs at 125 psi and it worked fine. Even though the gun runs at 150-160 psi(this bolt makes it run even lower) it can shoot ropes and rip. After dry firing and getting used to it, i took and did some reball tests. it worked fine in my garage and even though i wasnt using real paint, i was impressed with the results. I took it outside put some paint through it. It had some really bad kick, but it was hooked up to a compressor without a tank to balance it out. i hooked on a tank just to balance it and the kick didnt through me out of aim at all. ball on ball accuracy(tee hee) shot after shot, hopper after hopper. the only thing bad was, if you have stock settings, it will shoot over 320 and you cant bring it down. you have to bring down your dwell to 17-20 instead of the regular 25 or 30. if you do that and have the regulator set at around 2.5 turns, you have a working and great working gun. i had some chopping problems and some barrel break problems because my hopper was only feeding at 17 bps and i was shooting at 25 bps on ramping for fun. other than that, it worked well. very easy to clean and maintain because there are about only 6 o-rings to change and replace when there are like 15 on the stock bolt kit. oh yeah before i forget. the spacers. these were made for the people that like to run their guns at higher pressures. if you have ever seen or heard about the top hat mod or the tape mod, or the garden hose mod, this makes it easier and cheaper to do. you just unscrew tthe top hat back portion and slide them on or off. the good or bad thing is, an o-ring holds them in place so they don't go anywhere and come off without ease. there is also no foot valve on the bolt so there is no boost forward technology. some people have been disputing that without this, there will be a lot of bolt stick. the guide or manual for the bolt says to even turn off the abs system and just run at 20 dwell. you might think there will be a lot of bolt stick too. even when i am running at very fast rates of fire, it doesnt stick at all. the sound signature is also very different and quieter too because it uses less air and is a smaller mass moving at once. i know most or all of the matrix series guns are quiet, but this is so quiet, you can have a conversation over it. the splattering of the paintballs are louder than the firing or cycling of it.
Conclusion: For $80 its a great investment, if you don't have that kind of money, stick with the stock bolt.
another great product by techt products!!! i give it a nine because it works heavenly but a minus one deduction because people have broken them before. so its a little fragile.
9 out of 10
