There are no aftermarket parts for a Phenom that will shoot First Strikes. Maybe somebody skilled with machining could jerry rig something, but nothing commercial.

mkp2 kit with dmags will feed first strikes but there is currently no fsr bolt made for the phenom. Rap4 is working to release a lokbolt for the phenom which is fsr capable

What makes it a fsr bolt. Why won't the stock bolt work?

All that is required is to taper the bolt tip. I saw something on here about it or on X7OG. Didn't sound very hard to do.

It seemed easy, and it worked in testing, but the guy who did it said it was REALLY inconsistent. Apparently RAP4 is working on one, as is TechT.

The stock bolt fires first strike rounds fine if you don't shoot fast with them.

check out rap4's facebook, they've had a few videos using the lok bolt in an mkp2 shooting first strikes, sucessfully too. So hopefully it's release isn't too far off

I have an X7 phenom that i converted to mag fed and it worked awesome with first strikes. My mag fed a5 has the tapered bolt and i havent noticed a difference in the way they shoot first strikes. I dont shoot them very fast though so maybe that plays into it.
