Get the Techt L6 overall better than the firebolt plus it saves air... no one will ever see your bolt anyway, but I don't know much about the orange bolts and I'm assuming you are talking about the nano. It weighs a little more, but I heard that it had pretty good results.

^^^^ umm... Last I remember, EVERY aftermarket bolt should be making your gun more efficient. Even if it was a nano, I'd get a firebolt if you want the extended warranty and cheap price. If you have money, I guess you can get an L6.

Dont forget, for the Firebolt, there hasnt been an efficiency test as of now, so you cant judge between an L6 and Firebolt. They weigh about the same I heard, and even though the firebolt has 8 venturi holes, and the L6 4 big ones, if the areas of both of the bolts holes are about the same, Im guessing you should get roughly about the same airflow.

But we'll just have to see....

I bought the L6 though

I use a Nano and love it. The L6 is also a great option.

If you wanna save money get your stok bolt modded or if ya want go with the firebolt.

ok imma be honest, sure i love techT, but really the firebolt and the L6 are almost the same thing, the firebolt is like .5 oz lighter, and its about $20 cheaper depending where u get it from, hell i got my firebolt w/ shipping for $24 less then it would have cost me for a l6 + shipping

that second o-ring makes all the difference, i might just stick the firebolt in a lathe.

hah those things are hyped up soo much... i get the impression people buy them just to spend more money on thier ion... why replace 2 parts when you only need to buy an aftermarket bolt with the 2nd oring.

^^^ You dont HAVE to buy the second part(the chamber). Even if you buy it, it stacks on more efficiency. Im pretty sure a Firebolt plus stage 2 is more efficient that a L6+stock chamber.

on the contrary, the orings would obstruct each other's function. orings need to be on a flat surface opposite to it's own groove to form a seal.

this is assuming both orings are in the same spot, which they should be since there is very limited space on the tail of the bolt to keep air from venting when the breech is closed.

yes they are pretty much the same in that aspect, but also dont forget the s2 has the 4 holes in rear over the stock 2 for higher cps
