It will if you get the correct bolt.

You need a gen 2 since its a dragon.

I don't believe they ever made the bolt for gen 2, plus orange bolts are a hassle most the time you'll end up with velocity issues or the bolt pin will break randomly.

The original bolt pins were the problem, the revised version were not an issue.

By the length, and by know what your looking for.

Need to make sure it's not for a Gen3 or 4.

Again though, I would personally stay away from them. Stock bolt works great and is problem free.

Depends on your definition of the word "technically." I'd call it gen 2.5 as it's a mish-mash of gen2 and 3 parts.

If is for a gen 2, then yes.

I agree. I only have experience with them on Alias Intimidators but I have never seen an Orange bolt perform as well as the stock.

they dont, the gun was built with the reciprocating mass to be what it is, when you start cutting weight, you are going to get finicky velocities. Stock=Best
