Techt G5 bolt

Everywhere I read has said the techt bolt for the g3 spec r and g4 are not compatible with the g5, then I ran into this

This is a mistake right?

this has worked in the G5 but its not being sold as a G5 bolt because they want to do extensive testing in order to promise that it does work fine.

I subbed the thread and am waiting to see some good results. I have heard good things about techt but I don't know much about "two fat guys" so I have been waiting for testing. I am optimistic about it though!

Assuming I'm the first to get the bolt (since I live the closest to him) I'll be posting a video. Trust me, it's worth the pre-order.

So you guys aren't worried with the "it's not officially a G5 bolt" statement?

No, not really. It is because of the way the new bolt operates and how air flows, and more importantly, how air is sealed off, that makes the difference compared to the TechT bolt.

I think hes talking about the reliability issues techt had with their bolt. I have not had the G4 bolt in my hands to look at but if they got around having an oring on the outside of the bolt, it should work. Im not sure what they did but it was not shredding orings in preliminary testing. That means nothing though. Only long hard testing can verify things like this.

They have not promised anything. This should in no way shape or form backfire on them. They have stated that it works but needs further testing to be sure. Order at own risk if using for G5.

I missed this thread. This bolt works with G5 if you can solve leek fromb back cap. Because you can't screw it in to the end. Maybe it's just mine problem. You can try. I tried and fail. But 3 months later I solved this problem and it works great. But I didn't test it in filed yet. Only backyard shooting. And paint was not fresh. At the beginning of second pod it breaked a ball. At rate 20. So it was more than I expected for the first try. I like it very much as it was on G3 iq. It have much less kick then stock bolt.

Not even going to try and reply to Soul.Snatcher's post because grammar.

As for the G5 not being as good as the G4, its personal preference. Imo, the G5 has the better frame and better trigger. The reg on the G5 is solid and the shots are comparable when both are stock. The G4 has the advantage in upgrades though if that is what you want to do with it. But again, not much NEEDS to be replaced on the G5.
