DW Hollopoint Bolt

Anyone get a Hollopoint yet. How do you like it. Can anyone compare it to the L7 from experience. Dont care about weight, but want to know about pressure level and how quiet it is compared to the L7.

The amount of performance gained from a bolt compared to how much you spend is very bad. Unless you have a pre-select fire Vibe, it will do almost nothing noticeable. Worst investment ever made on my part.

If you HAVE to have one for whatever reason, the hollowpoint would be the way to go, since it has improved airflow, and a stalk that negates rollback problems.

If your going to get a DW HP or L7, I suggest you get a BlackHeart board as well
only because you'll be able to drop the dwell to about half on your vibe.

If you want a quieter gun, I suggest swapping out your barrel for an All American style barrel, the additional ports in the barrel will quiet your gun down significantly.

ya a barrel will do more than a bolt in terms of quieting down your gun. invest in a nice barrel or barrel kit because you will get a much better perforamnce out of that then u will out of a bolt

Pretty much any barrel that has more porting than the stock barrel will quiet down the marker.

really all a bolt will do is give you slightly better air efficiency. most people who have an upgrade bolt say the difference in noise is almost unnoticeable

the difference between stock bolt and any upgrade bolt is minimal. The differences in performance among those upgrades is virtually unnoticeable, if your gonna pick out an upgrade bolt, i say just go with the cheapest one.

If your upgrading to the Blackheart board, I suggest the Firebolt. With the higher rates of fire, it can be slightly harder on your paint. It is noticably lighter than stcock you'll be able to drop your dwell down and it will be easier on paint. Force equal mass times acceleration. Swapping bolts will not make your marker quieter just more efficient.

Warrior paintball "firebolt" copy is like 20$...its a copy of the fire bolt with one major imporvement...double tail orings - this is where noticable efficenticy gains are. The second oring stops the flow of air through the bolt at the end of the fireing cycle to not waste gas like the stock Smartparts bolts.

It is super cheap, super light, nicely finished and has worked well in my loaner vibe. Cheaper and better than the firebolt.

(FYI - SmartParts legally cannot sell bolts with the second tail oring due to patient issues, Dye owns the rights for the second tail oring. )

I PMed you, cant post link per forum rules. Google "warrior ion bolt".

Make sure you buy the version 2 bolt. The first run had issues and would break. There are no issues with the V2 bolt, Cant beat the price. I love mine. Nice green color!.
