Constructed from 60 series aluminum with a full 360' cut out between the two O-rings for mega gas flow. The ANS venturi bolt features 16 gas ports in the face of the bolt head for maximum balanced ball thrust which ensures longer straighter shoots!! At the rear of the ANS venturi bolt is a push button. When pressed in, this button allows the venturi bolt to be easily withdrawn from the Autococker.
The ANS Quickpull Bolt is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.

-Freak Barrel System

-Other misc stuff.....
It has a lot of holes and is pretty free-flowing, but look at "The Bad" \/ \/ \/ \/
"Quick-Pull" my arse....I need a damn allen wrench to push the ball berings back into the bolt in order to pull it out! I push the rod on the end, and I pull it, just like it says. Maybe I got a bad one, but I've heard other people complain about how some are soo easy to get out they fling out when shooting, and some others complain (like me) about how they don't come out at all.....
It works well when it's in, but removing it is a joke! I need a tool to get the damn thing out...........
-no pull pin to lose
-as accurate as any other high quality bolt I have shot
-I shot two of these bolts in two different guns, and one of the bolts was VERY tight in one of the back blocks. This was due to a pin that goes through the side of the bolt that holds the spring for the ball-bearings in place. This pin was not flush with the edges of the bolt, causing the bolt to be really hard to remove from the gun.
-This could have possibly been a fluke, because the other bolt slid in and out smooth as silk. I geuss all I can say is buy one from a local store and give it a good look over to make sure it doesn't have a mis-aligned pin.
If you really need to know, Email me. Too much to type.
The bolt looks really nice. Black polished aluminum adds a nice shine and flash to the end of the gun. Whats more important is functionality though. Compared to the stock bolt it is far better. It has a much better flow rate thus allowing me more shots per tank. It is also designed so that you cannot put it in upside down which is a slight time saver on the field. I also noticed that there were significantly less breaks at the breach with this bolt over the stock one. And, of course, what it was designed for... no annoying pull pin to lose or break. Really nice product.
As with anything, there are downfalls. One thing I noticed is that you will definitly need to mess with your timing. Maybe it was just my bolt, but it was longer then the stock one and thus I needed to adjust the length of the cocking rod and all that fun stuff so it would clear the feed tube. Aside from that, I think it does snag or chop a few more balls than the stock bolt, but not enough for me to want to return it. You will probably need to adjust the pressure for your Jackhammer (or whatever you use). I found the bolt to be a tight fit with the o-rings so I don't think that the lowest possible pressure will be suffiecient enough for the back block to go back fast enough. I picked out the very fine details for problems but I think the consumer should be kept informed, right?
Overall I was very pleased with the experiences I've had with this product. I'll admit there are some flaws, but it is still a big step up from the stock bolt. For the price, I think you get what you pay for. Nice Job ANS. I gave it an 8 because there are a few problems no product is worthy of a ten. (Including all you people with $2,000 Angels. No offence, but I think Autocockers are better... but thats just me.)
The spot between the two o-rings has sheared off, yes i said it, snapped in two, inside the gun while firing. After reading other reviews, ive noticed there is some chipping in the actual chamber on the gun, and it is not from lack of lube, because plenty was used. the rear detach button is tough to push while you pull out the bolt, especially when there is paint on the bolt, or your hands.
Dont buy, get something else if you already have one.
this bolt works really well but I am not too happy with it because it is worn on the top and bottom of the front this means it scrapes inside the gun this is also more friction put on the cycling of the gun but with enough lube inside it will be ok. I like the quick pull idea but if your hands are wet or have paint on them it is actually quite hard to pull it out. Seems to be fairly efficent on air too.
Still an upgrade part from stock but as far as smooth efficient I think it could get a little better.
I like ANS, and most of the parts on my STO are ANS parts, thus... I REALLY wanted to keep my ANS Quickpull, but I just couldn't take it much longer. I used it for about 6 months, and in the beginning I had heard tales of it flying out the rear of the gun. I think my deciding factor to put it in my fishing lure box of forgotten parts was when it finally gave. I am very thankful that I was wearing my mask, as I think it would have caught me in the eye.
Aside from the unexpected 180 degree firing option, the bolt also had a serious tendency to scratch the crap out of the interior bore of my marker... and YES, I can maintain a cocker, and I have to say that from looking at a lot of these reviews, that some poorly measured bolts were produced.. chances are you will stumble upon one of them if you opt for this bolt.
Chopped a few mroe balls than my STO stock..
The only ANS cocker part I WOULD NOT recommend. For a few more dollars you can do much better. I am sure there are some of them out there which perform as advertised, I wish I got one...
This bolt is a decent deal. I would not have purchased it had it not come with my gun. Yes it is a quick and easy way to clean the inside of your gun. However, I don't like when my gun isn't perfectly timed that this bolt seems to cause blowback and decides that it wants to fly out and hit me in the face.
This isn't the greatest of ANS' products and one of the few things from them i wouldnt buy. Just flat our not worth the money unless it comes with your GX3,4, or E.

Chrome finish wears off. Did pop out once.
I did have mine pop out once, so I do understand what everyone is talking about. Lucky for me I was chronoing my gun, not playing. Of course as often as I hit my mask with the bolt flying back (I play tighter than is humanly possible some times, lol) who knows how many times its been about to pop out only to have my lens pop it back in!
The chrome finish PEELING, not just wearing but peeling off because of wear on the ball detent! Whats that all about?
If you are broke then this bolt is OK. Of course if you got some ca$h, get the new bolt (JAM Enterprises Anti-Pinch Bolt) that will not chop. I have to get a new back block to get one, but I am working on it. Here is the site where it is reviewed. While I have not played a game with one, I did tinker with it and this is the future!
6 out of 10
