Review: When I received the bolt, I was very impressed with the finish and weight. It is noticeably lighter than stock striker. I had been running my gun with all the pieces above at 260psi with no problems. I installed the Ti bolt and had trouble with firing. It would take two trigger pulls to shoot every time. It seemed like the sear was getting hung up. I visually compared it to the stock bolt. The machining was very close but not exact. There is a notch cut out on the bottom of the striker that the sear catches when the gun is cocked. The notch was just a tad deeper than stock. I figured this was causing the sear to hang up on the first pull and release on the second. I ground down the underside of the striker to make the notch depth equal to the stock striker . After doing this it has performed perfectly.

Out of fairness to Dark Horizon, I must say I was unable to chrono the gun before and after installation. There may have been an inprovement to fps that I dont know about.
Conclusion: It is a good product, bit a little pricey. I was able to fire the gun at low pressures with the stock striker already. There is definitely less blow-back, which could mean better accuracy when shooting rapidly.
