Best bolt for a shocker SFT?

i just need peoples opinons on all the bolts out there that are currently avaliable. i have a stock bolt in it now which sucks imensley. i have had the gun for about a year now and used it once now the bolt sticks foreward all the time and leaks air. so ive done everything in the boook to fix it except getting a new bolt. so i need some opinions on what the best one to get would be. thank you for your time and input is greatly appriceated.

Yep, Eigenbolt once released. Shouldn't be too long now.

If you want something right now, I'd probably go with the NDz Stinger V3M bolt, and a Rhino1XL spring.

It's the first (production) bolt that has actually been engineered (ifyouwill) for the shocker, rather than replicating stock with minor alterations . . . Think of Lurker as the Carroll Shelby of shockers . . .

As Uziel already stated, for right now the NDZ stinger V3 with a spring mod would work best for you right now. Its what I use and what I've been using since CS released a couple springs before Rhino started mass production them. (I think it was Cs... its been so long lol)

cs900 does bolt conversions, but not springs. Was it against_me who did the first batch of Shocker specific bolt springs?

Anyway, as far as the Eigenbolt is concerned, you have magnesium construction, for best the best compromise between strength, low weight and wear resistance; you have high flow porting; air assisted reset; 'QEV' holes; the bolt is spring ready, and a spring is supplied. Dwell is kept short, and efficiency improves, without an increase in operating pressure, and cycle rates are maintained.

The magnesium has now been purchased, and machine time is said to have been set aside, so the Eigenbolt shouldn't be long now.

Indeed it was against_me. Oh how nice it is to be forgotten lol. Jk, I'm still listen in the spring mod thread as the seller of springs and still get pm'd and send them all over to rhino. I actually was gonna do a new run of springs right after my 1st batch. They were highly improved. With the 1st ones I got them made with not too much to go on so they were far from great. The 2nd batch would of been better but I wasn't working at the time and just didn't have the money to spare. By the time I had the money rhino was selling his and was doing so well and had a really good spring that I didn't bother with my 2nd springs.

You, sir, have my eternal apologies for such a serious transgression upon your honor, which is known to all to be of the highest sort.

Holy **** I have to stop posting after I read for my Medieval Society class....
