Premium Bolt Problem?

I just recently bought the premium bolt for my 2k11 G6R and the pillow inside the bolt seems to be catching the paint as its fed into the top tube. I dont know if its just my bolt that has this but the guy who made the comparison video, at around 3:40 you can see that his pillow is flush. I would just like to know if there is a way to adjust it or if i can just return it and get another.

thanks

There is no allen key spot or any type of spot for a tool and i dont want to rip the pillow off with pliers by accident.

This will help out everyone with a premium pillow bolt. Wish i had a camera to take pictures. My team Jax Raiders is playing d4 for cfps maybe d3 for cup this season. We just got a handful of custom premium g6r's from bob, and I was so disappointed when the rubber piece started coming out of my pillow bolt.

So here is the fix, like papaintballer15 said, screw it back in, the rubber piece is fixed/glued to a screw that can screw fully out. Hope this helped anyone who is having problem with their bolt. I used a pair of tweezers and got it snug.

I got a message from Zach Long saying that is what i should do. So, i tried it and the pillow ripped and since the brass piece was loctited in, the head of it snapped off. I tried emailing them to see if i can exchange mine but I have yet to be heard back. Emailed them about 3 months ago....

Sad story man, we all got our premium packages, but i took mine apart, although we were advised not to, because of the pressure i'm guessing. I have knowledge of bob long guns, so i did. Well, the only thing premium about the package, was the bolt, and the trigger. There is no zero ping ram, no lp poppet like all premium packages are supposed to come with, i have yet to bring up this news to our team captain. Man he is going to be sore.

Zack and Bob have been very busy though, it took them 4 weeks to ship our guns out, as they have been getting ready for paintball extravaganza. They have been very busy with team guns, custom annos and such. I am sure they have not been ignoring you.

Whoever told you the Premium package came with a zero ping ram is an idiot. Why would Bob Long sell TechT parts? Did you buy the premium parts afterward or order a premium gun? I think the premium package was just supposed to have the trigger and the bolt, it's only if you get a whole gun that it comes with the LP poppit, 2 piece barrel, trigger and bolt. Could be wrong though. I do know for sure that Zero Ping rams were never part of the deal (and aren't performance upgrades anyway)

It's annoying but BLAST is terrible at answering emails, you need to call them if you want results.

Sorry to the high jacking your thread bro, SKI008 is right call BLAST right away. Don't fool with emails.

Just to clear up, you are right on the ram, i must have heard wrong, or mistaken all together, i'm the idiot, lol. I left out the eyes though, i am supposed to have 4c eyes when mine are clearly 2c, i ordered the entire gun setup, i mean we got like 13 guns for the team. Got a nice deal, got the 2 piece barrel, trigger, and bolt for sure. I looked up the poppit and the stock is brass coated, and the LP are stainless from what i've researched. Mine is brass :/

Just call them and they should get you squared away. I would actually want to have both poppits for my G6R personally so I have the ability to swap for max efficiency vs lower pressure operation but that sucks your missing the 4c eyes. I have actually gone back to the stock poppit after about a year using the lp poppit in order to maximize the efficiency. It actually isn't much of a difference in feel or sound but the hpr does run about 10-15 psi higher.

As a person who ordered a decked out premium a couple of weeks ago this makes me nervous about them getting my order right. Talking with my dealer we keep getting the impression that they are slammed with orders already and the new Insight isn't helping matters.

Brought it up to my team, we were supposed to receive pressure testers for each gun, and 4c eyes and everyone knew about the eyes but me....lol,well we just played cfps this weekend. The guns shot titties all tournament, but unfortunately penalties screwed us. Bob long is definitely quality, i'm sure they just were so busy, they forgot, we will get it worked out later on. I don't blame Bob or Zach, i can be patient.
