Boss 302 bolt chopping

hey guys
well I installed the new 302 with short spring and bumper. I also used the recommended settings.

first noticed that the bolt did not move smoothly on the guide. I shot 2 hoppers with it in the back yard, broke a few balls, but figured it was just barrel breaks. took it to the field and the gun turned into a blender. re installed stock bolt and spring and she shot fine.

anyone have any suggestions on fixes?

all o rings on the guide are new.

I replaced the short spring with the stock one, removing the bolt oring and bumper. 1 hopper with no issues.

Yeah I had the same issues man, During the break in period of the bolt I had to use the stock spring with the 302 Bolt for quite awhile and then like months later I switched to the short spring it comes with. I also had issues with the bolt fitting really tight on my bolt guide and yeah just not smooth at all. Removing the bolt o ring on the inside of the bolt helped that a ton, but I am unsure if there will be any drawbacks to not having that o ring there.

Another thread proving that the stock bolt has no reason to leave the gun.
I only argue with intelligent people.
