Delrin bolt for PT Jr.?

Anyone know of a compatible delrin bolt for this pistol? I worry about the longevity of the aluminum that's stock.

you could grind in some grooves and put o-rings in there. the stock bolt wont wear the body away very fast though. my maverick has no striker o-ring and it has worked perfect for years and no wobble either. i wouldnt worry about it

You gas up the marker, put on the gloves, strap on the mask, and walk onto the field.. it doesn't matter that you failed a test, that your girlfriend broke up with you last night, or that you got a ticket on the way there... your world is right for the next couple hours, this is your heaven on earth.. live it.. love it..

Yup try Alamo city paintball. They are pretty good I heard, and they also have delrin strikers.

well the theory is it reduces recoil by reducing recipricating mass of the marker during each firing cycle. Which in turn reduces the amount of air that is required to fire and recock the marker. Also due to it being lighter it would increase your velocity without having to increase pressure or put in a heavier spring. I used to have one in my spyder before I sold it and I personally felt that it made a big difference. Thats just me though. Others feel the the benefits of a delrin bolt and striker are negligible especially when your just shooting a paintball gun not operating a space shuttle. Performance increases/ upgrades in some people's opinion are not needed because as long as it shoots paint at a decent rate why would you need to upgrade it. I agree to a certain extent. But as long as people make "upgrades" then someone will buy them.
