Period of
Product Use:

Experience:

Similar
Products Used:
Nothing similar. WGP delrin, orracle Eclipse dart, generic delrin, etc.
Marker Setup: Orracle with belsales ram and qev's, E2 (and 420 trigger mod sometimes for messing around) slik bolt (I love this), ccm aluminum pump arm, etc.

I think I own 13 or 14 cockers most of which are pretty much maxed out, so that pretty much covers it.
Strengths: Light. top pin/side pin. Can't swell, O-rings are optional.
Weaknesses: It can slip through the backblock, needs lock-tite.
Review: I have maybe 20 something autocockers, and 2 of these. I will buy any I can find for a decent price. They are far and away the best bolt I have used or seen. The only comparable bolts I have seen are Jackal and Dezign.

They are so light, that with the right pump arm and backblock, your cocking mass is negligible. I have CCM series 6 delrin block and a titanium arm, full size. at 26 bps the thing is smooth. kick is negligible, pressures are low. Fast and pinchy. It's beautiful. After this everything else feels like a VM 68. Also Nylatron won't swell. Another plus is that it is a good tight fit since they don't have to worry about oil making it swell and bind. If you want O-rings you can put them on.

The only thing I don't like is the scarcity and that it doesn't get wide at the back rim to keep it from sliding through. Oh, and it will rattle apart if you don't put lock-tite on the detent for the pull pin. That is a quality issue, but extremely easy to fix.
Conclusion: Buy it over anything else. The only other bolt I would consider is a V3 delrin jambolt for blind cockers. The eclipse bolt is just over hyped. Pretty much any simple delrin bolt is excellent and about the same. This is a couple of notches better, and doesn't cost more.

I think 10 is a ridiculous rating, but you really can't improve on this other than the lock-tite and slip through thing.
Why buy a heavier bolt.
Rating:
10 out of 10
