These bolts come from the engineering geniuses all the way over in Germany. The SAM bolts are extremely lightweight (only 17.5 grams) and are manufactured from a mix of Carbon Fiber and Aluminum. The bolt is also optimized for more efficient airflow. The combination of weight, airflow, and a slick bolt surface make for lower LPR pressures for less kick and better efficiency!
The Orange Paintball DM6 S.A.M. Orange Bolt is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
I say I only tested this bolt beacuse after a tank of air through my DM the bolt broke, the metal snaped inside the carbon fiber area, thankfuly it jammed in and did not come flying out, maybe I got a bad bolt don't know don't care it is my opion that this bolt should be avoided, I know alot of guys out there have had a great experience with this bolt but after what happend to mine I had to share it as a warning to others
SAM Orange Bolt
Dye Peanut Tank
CP Drop Forward
Halo B - V35
- Less kick
- Smoother, especially on Ramping
- Much better air efficiency
- Price (may be!)
I had a very good experienced with SAM Orange Bolt on my DM5, then after owned an DM7, Orange Bolt is my first choice on my upgrade list. It is very easy to replace the original bolt. It does not show much different on acuracy, but give my smoother when shooting, especially on ramping. Also gain better air efficiency, approx 25-25% more than the original bolt.
If you are looking to put your marker to another stage, you can try! Coz, you will enjoy more during the game. But it is quite cost to pay 60 - 80$ more.

When I first installed the Orange bolt it fit really snug. (not in a good way.) I took it over to the crony and it performed worse than my stock bolt. I removed it from my marker and started to look it over. It was very rough you could see the machining marks, not near as smooth as the stock bolt.
Air efficiency? not sure I did'nt use long enough to check.
Quiet? not really, just a different tone.
I would not recommend this product to anyone who is looking for an upgrade to the dm6 stock bolt. It looks cool, feels lighter but doesn't perform any better. Trust me! use the money somewhere else.
Cobalt to Black Dm6
Orange Bolt (Stock Bolt also Tested)
M7 Trauma Board
Dye 45/45 Throttle Tank
HE Bolt (Stock Bolt Also Tested)
M6 Dynasty Board

None so Far
This bolt is awesome. I was having problems with my dm6 having problems shooting more than 4 pods. I finnally invested in this bolt even when people said not to. I was able to lower my dwell to 10 yes 10 and my LPR to 1 yes 1. Using this bolt and SLICK HONEY i have had unbeliievable results. If you have the extra money and are looking for something extra for your gun, get this bolt.
Perfect upgrade for your $1200 investment. Hands down the best upgrade I have ever purchased for any gun.
