*It has improved my accuracy
*It doesn't wear as much as my old bolt
*The Quick Strip Feature is nice
*It also quited my gun down a little
*I also noticed less kick with the gun
When I put the bolt on I couldn't get my velocity up past 255. It was driving me insane. I have tried several things to get it up. If anyone knows who please help me out. Also the Quick Strip is stuck. I can't get it out.
Other than a few minor probs the bolt helped me out. It has worked well and hasn't broken down.

this is a great bolt. maintenance free. no o-rings, no lubing. little to no blowback. i had this bolt in my spyder compact and it was the best bolt i've used. its very accurate, and it quiets the gun down a good bit. very light, smooth action
cant really think of anything. it has a bad rep for swelling but thats only if you dont take care of it.
not sure how i like the idea of making bolts out of delrin, which is a very porous material. maybe they should use teflon... it would have the same advantages and wouldnt swell...
all the people that are complaining about the bolt not fitting and not being accurate probably left it sitting in the open air or in the gun while there is oil in the gun. before you use this bolt, buy a sniper squeegee (the kind thats made of cloth on a dowel rod) and squeege out the inside of the gun. the TINIEST amount of oil in the gun can cause the bolt to swell.

Well i have been using one of the Delrin/Aluminum Quick-Strip Bolts in my Spyder TL+ for about 6 months. NOOO Problems. It shoots cleanly, it dropped my operating pressure. Didn't have any velocity drop off, actually mine when up by 20 fps. It seals perfectly, though it will probably wear.
Well the quick strip feature is the only bad part i have seen about this bolt. Mine was very tight to begin with and VERY hard to twist. Unfortunately the constant slamming of the bolt has pretty much locked the lug in the down position. Oh well. Also it IS a little pricey for a spyder bolt.
Well. i like the bolt...it works well for me. Personally, what pisses me off is the rating currently given to this bolt, because 1 individual apparently has a hard-on against delrin bolts. If you don't like it, fine, review it and let it go, jeez. Yeah...it is a little pricey, but you can find it cheap some places. If you are thinking of getting one, and going to base your decision on PBreview, well read all of the reviews carefully. Make sure it isn't the same person whinging on over and over again just trying to pull the rating down because they don't like it.
It is very accurate once u find right paint/bolt/barrel combo. I hated this bolt for a long time but once i got my ultralite and 32 degrees team colors paint this baby was shootin dead on from 30+ yards away.
Hard to find right paint/bolt/barrel combo. Wears pretty quik. Other than that really nice bolt once u get it to work.

This bolt improved my old cocker and possibly was the only part in the gun I didnt worry about breaking down. My stock bolt for my Autococker always got stuck if you had no air in it and you pulled the bolt back and held the gun with the barrel to the ground (it should just slide) the delrin bolt always slides easily.It made the gun run smoother, no oil, and no O-rings, easier stripping and killer accuracy.
Get oil on the bolt and it can go south on you.
This is a good bolt for an Autococker, some guys say its horrible I don't know how it works in a Spyder. If you've got an Autococker this is an awesome bolt although a little expensive.
No oil needed, Quick Strip, my gun was farily accurate after putting in this bolt.
Well when I went to chrono the gun for some odd reason it was shooting around 200fps when my volocity was turned up to the max. I thought it was my co2 tank I lost a lot of air when my o-ring blew on me. Well the volocity peaked at 220fps I didn't relized it was the bolt until reading about the problems with the bolt here. Well I'm not going to get rid of the bolt I'll just do what phat john said to do "put o-rings on the bolt" so after typing this I'll make a grooves in the bolt and put some o-rings on.
Most likely this bolt is not good for people with spyders but maybe is better for people with other guns. I hope the o-rings help with the problem I have.
There are a ton of wanna be derlin bolts out there
I have a 2k2 cocker body with top of the line everything inside, ans gen x reg, 12 and 16in dye boomstick, and a 14 Freak, 90ci 4500psi Nitro duck. I have a Racegun Frame on the way
It is self lubricating so no more oiling the bolt all the time. It is lighter and drops the pressure of the gun. It does recharge fast and is ore consistent. It makes the gun more accurate. When i started off building my custom cocker i used a stock 2k2 bolt my friend had left over which wasn't bad, but i changed to a Derlin 2 months later and never regreated it. I love this bolt and it isn't really all that expensive
it wears down over time so it needs o-rings. I out mine on the lathe and put a little groove on the bolt to put o-rings and i has made all the difference. My friend that i got the stock bolt from got the derlin bolt before me and never put o-ring groves on it and he had to get a new one cause it was wearing down but this time he put o-rings on.
A great upgrade. quieter, more accurate and lowers the pressure. The only reason i am giving a is because i had to make the o rings and make it the best bolt out there.
Black Psycho Ballistics drop, ESP Frame, heavy duty striker, verticle adapter, ACI 4 Stage Expansion chamber, Bob Long Cyclone 3, Spyder Sonix (not for long, once i get a new body...), 12v Revy, Tear drop, 20oz CO2
nice thin rear cocking bar, good idea behind the design, fairly light, high flow compared to stock...
now the fun begins. my adventure with this satanic peice of pnumatic hardware began when i was at M.I. Paintball (best store on the jersey shore baby..) and i purchased one and we put it in there...problem numero uno. the T-Pin on my sonix BLOCKED the bolt from re-cocking...now, shoudn't shocktech KNOW the design of the gun before making the bolt? so we milled down my T-Pin to accomidate my new black delrin love...so, i get it home, air it up, mess with it a little, play a few backyard "Ghetto Ball" games (inflated pool toy bunkers..w00t!) and i start fireing fast, on my stock frame (no ESP yet for me when this happened) and the bolt hit the T-Pin and went into OVERDRIVE! it sounded like freakin lawn mower! so i took the tank off as fast as posible, and it stops...so i stipped it down, and the bolt was burning to the touch. so, i get it fixed up and put it back in...and then ihave my ESP installed...more bolt problems, just as i said above...i take it back to the guys at MI and we look at it for 2 hours...we milled down my T-Pin some more, and still problems...then we found it...the diameter of the bolt is TOO SMALL for a spyder compact based gun...thus, allowing excess gas to fill the area around the bolt, and wasting air...and causing blow back issues...so, for no additional charge, the guys swapped out my Shocktech, which litterally FELL APART during testing...the lug connecting bolt/striker fell out, the twistlock jammed up...so, it's now a monument to paintball oddties there. so, i got a Bob Long Cyclone 3 Rear, which works MUCH better...
make sure your body and bolt match up, or else you're in for one HELL of a ride...just get another rear cocking bolt or another Delrin bolt if you really want one..
DOES NOT RE-COCK
(I don't know if its my marker or what. I have done everything from using different springs to changing all of the o-rings, and nothing. Maybe it is because I use nitro but that is not an excuse.)
It is heavy.
There are two holes that are on top the other on bottom that would leak if it had the chance. Therefor not putting all air forward where it should go.
For all those people that this bolt works for them, I wish I had your luck because I want a quick strip rear-cocking bolt. I guess I will go for something else. Any suggestions.
Self Lubricating, thats about it. Oh easy to install just like any bolt. Not much wear and tear on this one.
Hate it I get CO2 leak every where because it doesn't seal. Major blowback into hopper and out side of gun where cocking knob is. Also have to take the pin out of your old bolt for use with this one. What a pain. I wouldn't recommend to anyone even someone on the opposite team.
Don't buy it. You will regret it. It isn't worth the money. I would spend a little more and get a better bolt for your gun. There are plenty out there.
