I wonder what it would do to the sound signature and efficiency.

I believe the stalk may violate Nicad's DW bolt patent. A non-venturi bolt
should not be a problem though.
FYI, the G3 bolt tip sticks out in to the breech a TINY bit. According to DP
this was done to help stop rollback, and having the next ball in the stack be
hit by the bolt. So far it has not adversely affected paint feeding at all.

But seriously thanks for contacting them. Also, ask them about ertalyte TX and see if they can make parts using that. Its what the NOX kilo bolt and Lurker's eigenbolt are made of.
They've always been on my radar as a go-to for custom work. I was looking
at Ertalyte TX when I was working on a Threshold bolt. It seems to have
very good properties for this application. I believe Delrin will be cheaper (and
easier for ACP to source).
