CNC machined bolt made from Nylatron.
Self lubricating material.
Maintenance free (no '0' rings to oil).
Smoother action (no scuffing in the chamber).
Lighter in weight than stock bolt.
Open face giving maximum airflow.
Better fit in chamber creating more air efficiency.
Reduced ball breakage.
The cheapest effective upgrade for you marker.
The APM Products Tigershark Bolt is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
A good alternative to the stock bolt. SInce they didn't make one for the JT, I had to get the longer Timmy bolt instead. Referring to the negative points above, I had to shave the ball detents deeper and also really ram the pin into the hole by force. And there's nothing I can do about the smaller diameter of the bolt
Due to the fact that I had to get the Timmy bolt for my JT, my experience may not really attest to true quality of this bolt.
Get it if you're setup for LP and wants a relatively inexpensive alternative to the stock bolt, then get this.

Spyder Xtra Factory Bolt- Tiger Shark Bolt is much better, shoots quieter, faster, uses less CO2, and chops less balls.
Kingman Spyder Xtra
Bottom Line removed
Beaver tail removed
12oz CO2 tank
Tiger Shark Bolt
It shoots quieter, faster, uses less CO2, and chops less balls.
Scratches inside of receiver. Self lubrication is not very good.
I got the tiger shark bolt and immediately put it in my marker. It fit perfectly and when i used it out in the field it performed beautifully. When I stripped my gun down later to clean it i noticed the chamber was scratched beyond belief. I figured that the self-lubrication wasn't working so I oiled it with Break Free CLP. For a month or two it performed spectacularly. One day after a game I cleaned my gun nd was putting it back together and the bolt wouldn't fit in the chamber! I had to force it in with great strength. The bolt must have swelled up somehow. It might have been the Break-Free lubricant but i used that for a while with no problems. Well now i can't use the bolt and i have to switch back to the factory one. I'm somewhat disappointed but hey, you get what you pay for.
I only got to use it half the time I owned it so I gave it 5 out of 5.
Just got back from the field, an to let you all know that this is a great product. I could not get the aka.. bolt to recock below 350psi, I tried with few different springs.. an its kept burping... when I tried.. to Bring.. to pressure.. down..
So I get TIGERBOLT in, it preformed great I got my gun dialed in with the tigerbolt @ 300Psi @ 280fps... I did not chop any paint, its seems IMO that it made my gun a lil quieter it worked flawlessly on the field, so yah I HIGHLY Reccomend this BOLT to anyone. good luck on you business I will recommend this bolt to all my frens
It shares a name with a brass eagle gun
Chopped bad once
This bolt was definetely worth the 14 bucks I paid for it. The fact that I don't have to oil it is enough reason to buy it. It's also very light. I had no way of testing efficiency, but I'm sure this bolt is more efficient than the stock.
Last time I played, the bolt pinched a ball causing the bolt to get stuck. This never happened with my stock bolt even when I didn't use an agitated loader
EDIT: My bolt swelled so it won't even fit into my gun anymore. This is pretty lame.
The bolt is one of the last things you want to upgrade on a spyder, but if you decide to get one, this one is great (Especially for the price)
