The bolt is made from a nylon-like material and is lighter than even delrin. It will help increase velocity due to the lesser force used to move the bolt. The bolt has a cupped face to gently push the ball forward. No venturi means a higher flow and a better, more consistent velocity reading. No oil necessary! This bolt is "self lubricating" like delrin bolts but can take moisture and oils without the swelling!
The Bandit Bolts Rear Cocking N-Bolt is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.

It does everything it says it does, its a quick, quiet, high flow bolt. Super easy to install, no adding a cocking rod or anything of that sort
First off the place I bought it from their website charge way to much to ship it. actually over 3 times what it actually cost them to send the thing through the mail. The price is a little steep for a bolt. Return policy is pathetic. You can only return it if its unused???? Whos going to know if its defective without using it?
Yes its a good bolt, but contrary to popular opinion a bolt is just a bolt. The differences are so small that you probably wont notice.There are 2 types of bolts, High flow and not so high flow. Unless youre going LP, I recommend going with a cheaper aftermarket bolt or just sticking with the stock bolt (yes they are good bolts) and using your money on a more suitable upgrade. Performance for this bolt is good but I realy dont think its performance worth the price. Id give it a 10 for performance because it does what it says it does and a 3 for the rest ..So buy it if youre not worried about the extra money it costs, dont buy it if youre trying to get the most for your dollar.
Very Light! Outstanding craftsmanship, these bolts must be hand machined because of the Nylon/Plastic material that is used. Does not swell like delron. When compared to an Impulse Delron bolt, which is small in size, the banditbolt was still lighter!
To all Spyder/Kingman buyers!
If you want your gun to last more than a year get this bolt! The stock Kingman bolt starts showing signs of wear and scratching the first time you use it! Call Kingman up yourselves and ask them, they will tell you that the scratching is common and no big deal. I disagree completely, any type of scratching or scuffing inside the bore will cause the bolt to slow down thus reducing your rate of fire and causing you to increase spring pressure just to maintain paintball velocity. Plus it makes the bolt look like heck along with the inside of the breach.
I replaced my Spyder flash bolt with a bandit bolt and neither the breach nor the bandit bolt has shown one bit of wear on it after at least 12,000 rounds. I shot 1200 rounds with the stock bolt and it was already showing major signs of wear! This material and bolt is great!
Customer service with www.banditbolts.com could not be better. I e-mailed them with a question about possibly making a bolt for the Spyder Imagine and the owner called me up personally @ home that very same day.
I could not be happier with the product or sales support, which can be hard to find these days.
Not a darn thing! You must get this bolt if you own any Kingman or marker for that matter!
If they don't make a bolt for your gun e-mail them and have them make one for you!
Absolutely the best Bolt out there in my opinion for Kingman guns. If the quality is the same for the other bolts they make (I would say it probably is) then I say go for it., You can't go wrong with www.banditbolts.com
Stock Bolt. Stock Bolt w/o Venturi. AKA Lightning and most other bolts have been tried.

This is the best bolt for Spyders. Looks cool, pretty much no oiling. Works as good if not better than the AKA Lightning for $40 less. If you are going LP buy this bolt because it is infinatly higher flowing than the stock bolt even if you remove the venturi. Front of bolt is dished to suport the paintballs shape rather than "smack" into it as the stock bolt does. Comes with the rear cocking rod which is not included with some bolts. The pull is also very light and I have had absolutely no problems with it.
There is only one place it can be bought and once you purchance it, its about three weeks before you will recieve it [they tell you this when you order so its not a suprise]. This makes sense as they have to mill it, however I am impatient. Cannot select delievery method when ordering. These are not actual problems in my mind but they should be stated in a review. No Problems with acutal bolt.
If your planing on going LP, buy this bolt. This is the absolute best bolt for the spyder anywhere [beats out AKA Lightning]. Have not had a bolt-related ball break in the roughly 3000 balls that have run through the gun with the bolt. If you need a new bolt for any reason, buy this bolt. This bolt will also get looks if your striping your gun at the field.
I use this on a LP TL+ with a Palmer Stab, and an eLCD.. Full LP setup running at about 330 to 350psi..
This bolt rocks.. Most aftermarket bolts are great, but my favorite thing about this bolt is the way it clears after a break.. The shell no longer jams in between the bolt and the body, and the high air flow really pushes the paint out of the way.. This bolt I'm keeping, the rest are up for sale on eBay..
I have nothing bad to say about this bolt.. Not even the price.. But then, I put way too much money into the TL+ anyway so a few more dollars don't hurt..
If you want a great aftermarket bolt for your marker, you really should try one of these..
This bolt is alot quieter than the stock venturi bolt and doesnt require nearly as much oiling. It does have 2 o-rings but it's no problem oiling it cuz u gotta clean the bolt after games anyway. The nylon material is great and there is almost no friction. It also has NO venturi which means higher air flow. It is less expensive than the lightning bolt which you also need to buy a cocking rod for.
You can only by it from swancreek online and is fairly expensive compared to other spyder bolts. The cocking rod is a little difficult to pull back if you have a beaver tail, but it's no biggie.
You get what you pay for; high flow, nylon material, cool cocking rod. If they let online paintball stores carry this and dropped the price 5-10 bucks it would be perfect.
Spyder TL Plus, Swan Creek N-Bolt (rear cocking), Ice Cold Barrel, w/ an 8-Stage X-Core on it's way.
- This bolt is very lite with an easy pull.
- Stays well oiled even after extended periods of usage or storage, my stock bolt had to be re-oiled after every game.
- Very easy to clean, once over with an oiled cloth got the bolt clean.
- Made my marker noticably quieter.
It's a two-piece bolt...the nylon plunger came partly un-screwed from the metal bolt-pull 'cause it wasn't screwed down tightly, easily fixed.
It's an excellent product...just make sure it's firmly screwed together when you first get it and you will never have a problem.
