Question Sanchez machine Reflex bolt??

Anyone used this bolt? I've searched and can't find any reviews. I'm not really expecting much in the way of gains. But the stock bolt in my Dye reflex is a PITA to get in and out. For some reason it doesn't turn easily, and it is a bit marked up from previous owner using pliers. I'm hoping this one would be easier...and I like the idea of it being delrin. Also is it venturi style or open faced? Any feedback or product experience would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Edit: Bought the bolt. The pin in the back and the ball bearing don't line up like the stock bolt. So basically I could put it in, but the only thing holding it in is the bearing. Or I can twist it so the pin holds it and not worry about the bearing, but then the detent groove isn't in the right position. So did I get a defective bolt? I looked on Ebay at one for sale and it is exactly like mine. I dont think the bearing will be strong enough to hold it in alone. Anyone else have this problem?

Those are great bolts, easy to remove, open faced, and noticeably lighter which reduced 'kick'.
They're rare to come by now if buying used, but since Reflex owners never had much variety with such an oddly proprietary bolt system I'd imagine not many get sold.

A few minutes of searching and I found one for sale. If you can't find it, PM me and I'll send you the link.

Aren't they right on SM's site? Thought I saw it there just today.

I thought the reflex was your average evo length bolt. How is it different in size than an evo length?

I too have a Dye Reflex cocker, Like stated above. We really don't have a lot of choice when it comes to bolts.

If I made a quick $30, would this actually be worth the money?

Unhappy

Bringing this back. I bought this bolt. The pin is in the wrong position. So If I twist it to lock the bolt in place the detent slot and ball bearing are in the wrong positions. If I line up the bearing and detent slot, the locking pin is in position for the bolt to come right out of the back block. I looked at one for sale on Ebay and it is exactly like mine. So are they all defective? Or is it just a bad batch that SM has released accidentally? I feel like it should be held in place by more than the bearing...If that was the intention why put the pin in at all? Anyone else have this problem or have this bolt and can shed some light on my situation?

I think the Superbolt backblocks are made differently, which is what I believe this bolt was actually made for initially.
