Front Bolt Bumper

How long does the Front Bolt Bumper last, until you need to replace it?

do you mean the back bolt bumper? This is the only "oring" thats not actually like an oring correct? Mine started shredding really quickly, sometimes only after about 3 hoppers. I called dye and they sent me some new ones, twice, no questions asked. I'm still waiting for the new coloured ones to come in.

If you dry fire into a towel you can actually see shreds of the front bolt bumper left over on the towel. With that being said, the new orange ones sound like they don't have this problem. Also, it does not seem to cause any problems with the marker until it's completely disintegrated to the point where it's no longer a bumper. I've been able to shoot more than one case with the same bumper so I've just been keeping an eye on it's condition when I go into the lube it.
