i'd stick with stock bolt personally, but if u really must i'd buy the ST bolt. my friend had a loss of 20 fps when he switched between his orange bolt and stock alias. The plastic pin (before they switch to the metal pin) snapped, and i don't think he's shipped it to them yet for the metal pin.

If you get an aftermarket bolt for the A-Bomb, go for the Hardshell bolt. It is the only bolt that I have seen better performance in over the stock bolt.

The difference in performance between the Function and stock isn't noticeable.

The VP teflon bolt will only reduce friction. The performance between it and the stock bolt isn't noticeable. I had one installed in my Russian Legion at one point in time.

I have a Shocktech and it works almost exactly the same as the stock. Stay away from the Orange one.......nothing but problems.

Hardshell would be the best o-ring less version.

So whats wrong with your stock bolt that makes you want to upgrade? I'd have to also say stay with the stock.
