Products Used:
Stock Cocker bolt, few other AM bolts.
Marker Setup: '02 Cocker, 14" Freak kit (AA tip/SS back), 68/4500 Max-Flo, WGP Hinge Trigger, System X Gas-Thru grip, Polycarbonate Ricochet 2K, ANS 2K Quick-Pull bolt, Shocktech Bomb 3-way, Short Drop, Macroline.
Strengths: Looks quite nice as you can buy it in various different colors. Mine's red to match my gun. The whole quick-pull idea with the two big BBs with the button on the back is nice. Much easier to remove and put back on with out loosing your push-pin or it's bearings, and it doesn't damage your back block.
Weaknesses: Compared to the stock bolt (which is actually a very good bolt) it made very little difference. After switching bolts and checking my timing, I was getting a slight blow back instead of a slight vacuum which will increase the chance of misfeeding and chopping. It's slightly heavier than the stock bolt which means more weight to cycle resulting in slightly slower cycling, lower BPS, and if you're trying to build some sort of 'Super Speed Cocker' than that's not good. The anno'ing scratched off quicker than I though which may result in body wear later on.
Conclusion: This isn't a bad bolt at all. Even there is no accuracy increase the quick-pull design is a definate score in my eyes, but that's not worth the price for the bolt. If you think that a venturi faced type bolt will improve accuracy and reduce breakage, you're sadly mistaken. With an open faced bolt the air is spread over a larger surface area on the ball resulting in less force on the shell, and you get a better air flow for better shot to shot consistancy especially in higher ROF. If you're looking for a bolt, spend a little extra for a nice delrin bolt, like the AKALMP Lightning which is probably the best bolt out there. I'll give this bolt a 7 as there is nothing majorly bad about this bolt, but the disadvantages outweigh the advantages.
