Putting a spring behind the bolt would allow you to reduce your dwell time since the bolt would travel forward faster, but you would have to raise your LPR pressure to allow it to return properly. It's going to be harder on paint and is the opposite of how most people tune their Matrix.
Just because something works in a Shocker doesn't mean it will do the same in a Matrix, the bolt assembly is laid out differently and the Shocker doesn't use an LPR.
And if this was ever a big thing I must have missed it.
