Bolt idea thoughts

So I bought a GM bolt off of the BST, it is polished on the outside but defiantly is a gm due to the gold anno inside the bolt. My concern is that one day it MAY break in half like some GM bolts have.

So my idea to this potential problem... 3D print a bolt?

Would it hold air pressure correctly? I would think so I thought I have read that they can hold up to 6,000 PSI

Any input would be awesome

Why not just get an RSF from Critical? It's slightly superior to the GM anyway overall, and aren't all that expensive.

RSF bolts are no longer available and I would consider it the second best bolt available for the Quest. The 4B bolt kit (bolt and pin) is #1 but is no longer available either. You'll have to find a used one. I own a 4B bolt and it turns the Quest into a seriously kickass marker.

I'm sure one could find a way- but I doubt that it would be print and go. You would have to either fill then seal the uneven surfaces with something (hard bondo? +chemlease?) or printed over sized and then brought to spec. Doing something like that by hand would be quite an accomplishment and I would give kudos for sure. Getting the oring grooves and interior sealing surfaces right would be quite the challenge unless you are going to throw it on other machines. At that point though why not just use aluminium?

That said- I'd like to see it done, go for it
