This bolt/block combination is
quite unique. To remove your bolt,
you simply twist and pull. You’ll
never have to worry about losing
your bolt pin again! We’ve also
added a hole in the center of the
bolt so you can adjust your lug
timing without having to remove
your bolt every time. The proven
DYE venturi design on the face
increases air efficiency and
accuracy while delivering
a softer “punch” on the ball
when it is fired.
The Dye Bolt and Block is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
If you chop and stick, you can't get the bolt out without pliars.
I have no major complaints about mine, other than the fact it's not delrin. If I was choosing an aftermarket bolt, I'd probably go with a Shocktech or a Lightning.
Anyways, it's very nice being able to twist and pull to remove the bolt, and it has a nice, clean look too.
Unfortunately, it's aluminum. Wish it was delrin.
The biggest problem is that if you chop a paintball, and shell gets wedged between the bolt and the body, you might not be able to get the sucker out of there without pliars. That's a time you'll be missing your old pullpin bolt. Fortunately, that hasn't happened to me yet.
It's "OK" but there's better alternatives for the price (Lightning and Shocktech). It's aluminum - wish it was delrin.
I actually found a custom made delrin bolt for Dye cockers, so I'll be using it soon. This aluminum bolt is going bye-bye.
the stock back block and bolt. They arn't mildly close to the caliber of block and bolt this is. It makes the stock look like a pon shop special. I would recimend it to anyone im going to get one very soon.
02' cocker, all american 12" barrel, kapp f/x beaver and twisted cocking rod, ricochet 2k and a whole lot more upgrades w/ a 68/4500psi pure energy tank
Improves accuracy by a huge percent and is easy to strip.
Costs a bit much but with the accuracy you pick up its well worth it.
Great block, with how much i shot it there were no problems and very accurate i was hitting moving targets a like 65 ft. perfectly in the head quite a few times. A kid on my team has one and he hasn't had one problem and has talked me into one now.
Just spend the $80 and buy it. Will help you guns accuracy by a whole lot jus BUY IT BUY IT.
2001 WGP right feed cocker with chrome double swing dye trigger frame, blue pshyco ballistics drop forward (not the really long one), blue system x 1 piece barrel and the dye bolt block
its a venturi bolt, speaks for itself. its better than my stock bolt. quieter and more accurate operation.
theres no hole to adjust the lug timing, my block wont touch the body no matter how hard i screw it. when i twist the pin thingy i have to twist it a bit more becase its not flush (even) to pull out the bolt.
all in all a great bolt and block, remember to tighten the screw on the other side of the block so you wont lose the ball and spring. hey, nothings perfect, unless you got alot of money.
99 A/C RF with the following: Rat valve III, Madman spring setup, Black Ice reg, ANS Jack Hammer2, ANS LP Chamber, KAPP RAM, DYE PMP 3 way, Kapp flat actuating rod, Kapp Beavertail, Kapp Twister Cocking rod, AKA S/S pump Arm, Kapp hammer kit/ Jam nut, Kapp Drop Zone 2, and finally the DYE hinge Frame
Solid construction, makes for a fast stripping and you don't have to worry about the pull pin.
After some many shots, the bolt/screw that holds the twist knob, the small spring and the tiny ball bearing together will vibe loose. And if you lose THOSE pieces on tthe field--you are so outta luck. It happened to me and I had fix mine with rigged R/C parts. Furthermore, the block and the bolt are interdependent and cannot be used in conjunction with any other bolt or block.
Dye usually makes a good product. The concept was a decent attempt. But, with need to switch to a delrin bolt combination, this item isn't worth the $60.00 market price. Also, even though the construction is solid..it is uncharacteristically heavy. Caution should be also used when playing with this because one can't always tell if the twist knob is in the locked position. You may just end up buying a new lens to replace the bolt just cracked. LOL.
