Post How to test for blowback

Alright, this question has been asked a lot and may people dont know the effects or how to detect it.

Cause
Blow back usually occurs when your bolt isnt the optimum size for your breach. This allows air get around the bolt and cause air to blow up the feed tube AKA blow back.

Effects
1) Disrupted and slower feeding, this can lead to an increase in chops.
2) Minor decrease in efficiency
3) Minor decrease in consistency, leading to a minor decrease in accuracy.

Detection
1) Remove you barrel and shine a light through the front of the gun at the breech. If you see the light around the bolt, then your bolt is too small, and you may have blow back.
2) Put a ball in the breech and put a piece of tissue or a business card onto of the feedneck. Fire the gun. If the card or tissue flies into the air, then you have blow back.

Fixes
There is only really one way to fully cure blow back.

1) Get an oringed bolt. The vapor bolt and bonebreak bolt will both work well.

Some people say that a HALO will cure blow back, but it wont help with efficiency and consistency.

So to sum it up, get an oringed bolt.

The air itself doesnt cause the ball to break, but it can slow feeding leading to chops.

now now children.

BTW, Zenitram bolt? I know Zenitram made their own bolt for the Venom Bushy, but I didnt know you could buy it by itself. Maybe you were talking about the Bonebrake bolt? I dunno.

it funny that you did this, I was just thinking the same thing since so many ppl have been asking about blowback lately. Anyway nice job. Only thing I can add is that the disrupted feeding can lead to chops (some ppl may not be able to put 2 and 2 together, you never know). Also, if the blowback is severe enough, a Halo may not even be able to fully prevent chops due to blowback because the paint would jump up with such force that it could break when it hits the ball above it.
