You must have had a spike of over 300fps in order to do that...

Please note that "old" metal bolts will not work with the 09 UL SLG.

This happened to me TWICE on my 08 Proto SLG. DYE actually allegedly changed the type of plastic they were using when the sent out the replacement bolts. Call DYE and have them send you a replacement. you'll need to send the old one back via the RMA number they give you. If it was me, I would make my local shop tear down a new one and give me a new bolt from a new gun out the box. I was down for WEEKS when mine broke. Put some heat on your local shop to replace it ASAP.

back pressure. i was dry-firing a whole tank into a pillow blanket to break in the reg. since the pillow-blanket combo was there to keep things more quiet, it also prevented the air from properly venting. since i was shooting like 17 bps, enough pressure built up to bust the bolt.

i checked in with dye. the bolt is supposed to be delrin. mine was composite. composite is stronger than delrin in terms of flexing, but for holding pressure, no.

Mine broke firing paint. I was shooting in a basic stock ramping mode and the gun just quit on me. Nothing wierd. I think it's just a coincidence. Either way, they should be replacing it for you.

I tried the 09 SLG backcap on my 08 SLG and it worked like a charm.
