Seller is not to trustworthy
I bought the bolt on ebay for $25 which is cheap for a bolt, expecially a nylatron or delrin one. I payed the guy paypal and he never sent the bolt. About a week later he sent me an email asking for a payment. I told him him that i had already sent him payment but he denied ever recieving money. The next day he sent me an email sayin that the email address that i sent the payment to was not working do to SOME BANK ISSUES, and i would have to send money to his aol email address. So i went into paypal and retracted the money for the first email address and sent the money to his other email address. About another week later i got the bolt in the mail. So it took about 2 - 2 1/2 weeks after the payment to receive my bolt. However as soon as I recived the bolt i took out the old aluminum one and put it into my T.E.S. as soon as i shot it i could tell the difference. The bolt was smoother, faster, and quieter. The best thing is that its self lubricating so you never have to oil your bolt, and it wont scar or scratch the inside of your gun like the stock bolt will. It is much like a delrin bolt but is better, Nylatron is more durable, lighter and wont swell like a delrin bolt when it comes in contact with moisture or oil. There was no blowback at all even without the o rings (which i recomend you leave off). The accuracy was not affected at all. I was impressed. The only thing is that since the bolt is so light you will have to turn down ur psi on your reg or put in a lighter main spring or smaller shim because the velocity is higher than normal.
I give this product a 9 out of 10 because of the seller. Before you buy it i reccomend that you email him about shipping and payment. The bolt itself is awesome and i reccomend it for your T.E.S. or The One. It is a cheap and instant drop in for performance. The other thing that i reccomend is that if you want to shoot a real 20bps with the T.E.S. or 25-30bps with The One you should get a better reg along with this bolt. The stock reg doesnt flow well enough and isnt very accurate.

They will not ship the product!!!!!! They just take your money!!!!
The company!!! Will not respond to email or phone calls
Ordered one almost 2 months ago!!! Still no bolts. Can't get them to respond to emails or phone calls. Alot of people have had the same problem!!! Don't order unless you want to get ripped off!!!!!! Alot of people have filed complaint. Check out pbnation.com for more info!!!
Never got my order so don't know!!! Dont Order from them!!!!!!!!!
Green to Black T.E.S. with Evolution hopper, Freak barrel, Check It feed neck, Spudnuk'l nylatron bolt, Dragon tooth trigger, HPA.
Perfect fit, super lite and air efficient.
Order status and customer support
The Spudnuk'l bolt works great on the TES. The fit is perfect and the bolt is very lite. You will see a big difference in trigger bounce just by adding this bolt. I removed the dragon tooth trigger and put the stock trigger back on to be sure it was caused by the bolt. The trigger bounce was reduced but there's still much more than you would get with the stock bolt and easier to get. A word of caution, if you us this bolt you may not want to polish the striker, the marker may run away and you might have to do some touch ups on the sear and striker where they contact to hold the striker. Make sure these are crisp edges. I use the shocktech velocity shim kit and spring kit instead of stretching or cutting. With a polished striker and nylatron bolt my TES went full auto easily. I ground the striker and sear contact points to sharp 90 degree angles. I turned the reg down and went with a moderate spring and the smallest shim combination. In the end I ended up with a TES running at 300 psi and shooting 292-297fps.
The only bad thing was the order status. I waited 4 weeks for the bolt. That's okay but the web site says 5 days. I emailed them to check on it three times and called twice but I never reached anyone or received a reply from any contact attempts I made. I received the bolt the day after I submitted a Pay Pal dispute. (I thought they went out of business)
Bottom line, this is a great bolt, but keep the striker stock and wait for a titanium one to come out. (Dark Horizon has the TES on the list but has no manufacturing date set) If you already polished your striker you may have some work to do. I would highly recommend this bolt for any stock TES setup, you won't be disappointed.

This bolt is pretty good! mines is made of nylatron and it hasn't swollen yet. runs pretty smooth. it did go bit louder than stock but it's alrite. the double detent is pretty good use. the detent for the eye side is pretty no use b/c the eye is out of the bore. Reason i got this bolt b/c the angles intake and the orings. i wanted oring b/c i didn't want no blowback at all and so for so good. it didn't do much in performance like efficiency and kick but for the bore yea of course and most likely accuraccy.
EDIT: The bolt pin holder thing bent on me and so then I couldn't use it anymore...
Well the bolt gives u a higher flow to the ball = accuracy and better fps. I didn't get mines from the dealer so i dont know about the wait of gettin it. It's a pretty decent bolt, good for your money. I'd recommen it (try to get from someone beside dealer) I only had 2 chops and thats it (hopper couldn't catch up + eye read the bolt) choped from the bolt and other barrel break from bolt break. GOOD PRODUCT!!! GET UR HANDS ON ONE

I bought a APM tigershark bolt that worked pretty good. The only thing was it was slightly to large in diameter. I was going to get a new one from APM, but they arn't making bolts right now.
So Spudnuk'l makes them for about the same price, but they have a radiused intake port and a set screw to take out the pin. I wish I bought the Spudnuk'l first time round.
Yea, the price is right and it works really well.
Giving it a 10 only because of its good price for what you get.
