PBR's Official E-bolt Sticky

This thread is for the recreation of the Ultimate Sticky. If anyone has any ideas to add, please feel free to post and let me know. Coenen, when you see this feel free to put it in there.

Basic E-bolt Info
The E-bolt was Tippmann's first electronic conversion kit. They were made for the 98 Custom and converted the gun from blowback operation to electro-pneumatic. This means instead of a spring-driven back bolt being released by a sear and striking the valve to propel a paintball, a circuit board controls a pneumatic solenoid that moves a spring-returned ram that opens the valve when it moves forward.

When they were still in production, there were three brands of E-bolts. They are as follows:
  • GTA E-bolt; $300 MSRP PBR rating 9.4/10
    These are the most common E-bolts. Made by Tippmann, they're capped at 13 bps out of the box.
  • Psycho Ballistics E-bolt; $200 MSRP; PBR rating not available
    These are harder to come by. The least of the E-bolt family, not worth getting.
  • BSI E-bolt; $350 MSRP; PBR rating not available
    Uncapped out of the box, this is probably the best (un-modded) E-bolt kit. Probably the most hard to come by now, don't hesitate to grab one if you find it.

E-bolt Troubleshooting
Having trouble with your E-bolt? Leakage, low velocity? Check out PBR's E-Tippmann Problem Guide.

Modding your E-bolt
If you have a little know-how and a lot of patience, stock E-bolts can be modded. All three models can be modified for faster ROFs, but the information I'm going to provide is for modding the GTA E-bolt.

There are several ways to modify your E-bolt for faster ROFs.
