Imaginary loudness?

I got a pillow bolt back from BLAST (thanks guys) when I sent the gun in for repairs, and I think it made the gun louder. I remember that the thing was ungodly silent, and it is still really quiet, but now I think it's louder. So I was wondering if the pillow bolt actually makes the gun louder or if I'm imagining things. I ask because I'm thinking about trading down. Thanks.

no way! I'd never trade my marq. I love this thing. I was actually thinking about trading my bolt.

Calling BLAST might not be a bad idea.

They probably re-set your pressures when you sent the gun in....and a higher pressure means a louder gun. Tune them down to make it quieter.

a bolt will actually have an effect on sound signature. it's all part of the instrument, which is why stradivarius' cost millions, that and he's dead. as for louder, it's probably that they just upped your lpr for you.

I think that was it. adjusting the pressure down on the lpr an 1/4 turn or so of a turn actually did the trick.
