What's up with this bolt?

What is up with the black look at the back of the bolt in the picture of this G6R?

They are a heavier pillow bolt. Basically heavier bolt means you have more mass to smack the valve open with so you can run at a lower LPR and slow the bolt speed down for less kick.

Or something like that.

That bolt pin is kinda a pain to remove and put back in, but it looks very clean.

Have you never seen a Freak barrel before? That's where the insert goes. There's no insert in it right now.

They are actually the same weight as the stock bolt. The heavier weight was a misconception when the bolt was released. The bolt's body design is the same as the stock dirt resistance bolt (a good thing), they have a new pin design but can be purchased with the standard, there is now an aluminum insert that contains the pillow. In comparison to the old pillow bolt I have noticed a little bit of a FPS gain and some improved consistency at a lower lpr setting. I largely contribute this to the slightly tighter fit of the the bolt. There is supposed to be an improved air inlet on the bolt but in my inspection I haven't been able to find anything different from the stock inlet.

Whoever wrote the product description on the review page for the bolt and on Left Coast's page needs to learn what "inertia" means if it's not actually heavier:
