stops blowback, nice color, little bit air efficient
machining not perfect and i dont know to use to loosen the bolt pin thing
i put the bolt in my gun and it went in extremely well, perfect size.I went to my back yard and put a credit card on the feed neck and shot a lot of times, and the card barely moved,so it worked.ummm i love this bolt! it solved my problems! ahhits great and i love it now. gives my gun a better sound i think
i think its really good if u have blowback problems or stuff like that and blah blah blah its really good go buy one today. oh and its shorter than stock,so that when u shoot it it wont pop out of the back of ur gun

too much friction
Here's the story I bought my b2k used on ebay with a few things done to it. Right away I ordered the vapor to go kit. I installed it, and I have only used the maker once before I installed the vapor parts. I thought that my marker was too loud, so I sent it to be vaporized hoping that it could be tuned to be quieter. I got the marker back with the cool vapor jewel and new hid blue light, but when I went to the field it was still loud, the bolt was greased heavily when I recieved my marker and I broke a ball that day and had to clean my bolt therefore wipping of the grease, I forgot to get my grease so I decided to slap in the stock bolt. I shot it a few times and the paint was winging. I brought it to the chrono and it was shooting 340fps wow!!! So I was able to turn the pressure way way down and was shooting 290fps @ 170psi. The marker is now literaly ten times quieter, more consistant, and I have broke zero balls. My conclusion is that the bolt is good for some bushys but my body is too small for it to work properly, will I ever get rid of blowback and still have a quiet marker? I don't think that the product is bad it is just my marker, it isn't for every bushy.
buy it and try it if it doesn't work for you oh well sell it to a friend and try a new bolt.
pretty decent price alot cheaper than my sandridge bolt($60) heard its better than the supaslicks, I didnt find any advantage over my stock bolt. I had to sand it down quite a bit but I used a lathe and got it really even so it now has a good fit after alot of work
*not even nylon not even close to delrin, more like cheap plastic.
*terrible quality control my air passage wasn't even completely cut through
*Took over 2 months to get it and never heard from Sam during that time
*no improvement over stock bolt
*breaks more balls
*not even close to the quality of my sandridge bolt
*no improvement in air effeciency
*I once used a supaslicks open face bolt and found it much better than this one much less drag than the vapor
*Not worth your money, buy a different bolt keep your stock bolt and save some money
*My bolt pin didn't fit through the whole
*difficult to field strip to run a squeegee through my cocker is easy to pull the bolt and run a squeege through the body and barrel
Alright this got removed once so i updated it now that i have the bolt so dont get rid of it even though i gave it a bad review like last time. I have had an awful time w/vapor and this bolt. Thats probably why i didn't even try to get their valve. I give this so low cause the product isn't very good and the service is awful. It desaerves a 3 cause its not awfull but its pretty close, all other bolts are better.

Solved BlowBack Problems
I got this bolt used from somebody online, and as soon as i poped the sucker in it solved my blowback i had no kick anymore! This bolt is awesome for anyone who has blowback or who is looking for a great bolt for a modification for there BKO or other bushy.
My inital thought on this bolt was the same as many i've read, Bolt was too short! however i get nice and close to my gun when i shoot, so the shorter bolt is nice, since it doesnt come out the back of the gun you wont crack your mask when it loads the next ball. I had one bolt actually break, called sam and explained the situation, i recieved a new bolt in a week at no cost. I've been using that bolt for the last 1.5 years without a problem.
Anything Vapor is a good idea, He doesnt charge alot and his products and back with great service, and are good quality. Always nice to see someone stand behind their work and take pride in it!!!
this bolt is a lot better then the stock bolt because of the o rings. they do seem a little loose though and i have gone through the 3 extras that they sent with it. but they are cheap to replace and it helps with blow back issues if you are having any.
in conclusion i think its a pretty good bolt. some people say it is too short but it still sticks out a little so you can get a hold of it. if you are having probs with blowback get it, or if you have access to a lathe and you're fairly bold you can make your own with the stock bolt. anyways, im giving it a 9.
9 out of 10

stops blow back
helps air efficiency a little
if you have blow back get this bolt it will get rid of it.also the bolt fits good in the gun because off the o rings on it. also i think that it is nice that this bolt is not delron so that way you don't have to worry about it swelling.
if you have blow back on your bushmaster get this bolt you will be very happy
