Designed by Aardvark to fix the Matrix's gas inefficiency, this bolt improves shots per tank by 33% while changing the sound signature to be even quieter. A new chip that is included in the kit allows the gun to cycle up to 21 times per second!
The bolts now include flat o-rings and Anti-Bolt-Stick programming in the chips for even further reduced bolt stick!
The kit includes: entire bolt assembly, bolt chip, matrix muck.
Please be sure you select the correct kit for the style of your marker. Choose Slide switch if the on/off switch of your Matrix is a switch, or Push Button if its a push button.
The Aardvark Bolt Kit is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
Matrix (LED w/ pushbutton) with AA Messiah @ sub-200psi input. Trinity reg, High Efficiency (Red & Blue) bolt kit. AA Armageddon 68ci 4500psi, no drop forward, set at 800psi.
Palmer Cocker same, except AA Vigilante @ 325psi input.
Lapco, Custom Products and DYE aluminum barrels of various bore sizes. 12V Revies w/X-boards and 6-arm paddles.
The bolt helps to improve the Matrix's only serious flaw - its abysmal shot count (efficiency).
I would agree that the improvement that you'll get with the Aardvark bolt kit is about 30 per cent or a bit more. Instead of getting only 700 to 800 shots per 68ci 4500psi tank, you can expect about 1000 to 1100 shots. While this is still not a fantastic shot count, it certainly is a big improvement from stock.
Installation is straight forward.
Price is better than ever, as Aardvark dropped its pricing recently.
It would've been great if the bolt kit could've improved efficiency to the level of a well-tuned Cocker (perhaps 1300 shots or more for the above mentioned tank). Oh well, I'm still grateful for the 30 percent or more increase in shot count.
This part isn't just a luxury for a Matrix - it's a necessity (the upcoming Matrix LCD will be coming stock with its own High Efficiency bolt system). It brings the Matrix's shot count up to a decent number so you can stay on the field.
Even with this bolt kit, I'd still suggest front players shouldn't use anything smaller than a 68ci 4500psi system, with back players on an 88ci bottle.

increases shots per tank
more venturi holes
this bolt kit is a must if you have only a 3000psi tank, the kit makes the gun quieter mor gas efficient and even more accurate. the bolt comes with more venturi holes than stock and the kit is just one piece when you get it, its easy to maintain unless your too lazy to put any oil on it, the kit also allows for up to 22 bps thats 5 more over stock. also this kit makes the gun sound more powerful but its quieter as well. this kit is a must for any paintballer
overall im very impressed by this kit, its only 100 dollars and its such a good buy if you want to save gas get more accuracy quieter gun and if you just have the need to upgrade
more shots per tank, helps make the gun quieter, helps prevent bolt stick
none found so far
I got a good amount of shots per tank once i added the bolt kit..i use a 88/3000 and i get around 1000-1100 shots per fill...one of the best upgrades to buy if your leaving the field early because your out of air the new chip that it comes with is nice too, faster chip and it has ABS on it
I would buy this as long as your matrix didnt come with one i.e LCD matrix, Toxic Trix ect...

after using the stock bolt after a month i found my self leaving the field to go fill my 68/3k tank. After putting the bolt kit i can esialy can last anywhere form 3-5 games without filling. This bolt kit works wonders.
the only thing that i noticed was that the bolt kit was a bit heaveir then the stock. but no big deal. as long as i can still aim then its all good
i highly reccomend this bolt kit. it is far greater then stock. This bolt kit also is easier to maintain then stock. Rather then buying a bigger tank just buy this bolt. i did it and have no regrets.
Pushbutton Matrix #20094
12 in boomstick Soon to buy a snort
Kapp dropzone 2
68/45 Crossfire low pressure tank
The bolt kit solves so much of the problems with the retard stock bolt its not even funny. These things should just come stock on the matrix but dont. Go and buy one
Nothing really it fixes to many problems to be one
This is a must if your going to buy a matrix. Unless you want to be filling up every two games youll want to get this. Plus it makes the gun even quieter than it already is so its even better and coller sounding.
