Spring kit?

I just need to know if http://www.ndzpb.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=catalog.prodInfo&productID=26 9&categoryID=5 will fit my bolt in my Mini. I believe I have the NDZ V2 Tru-Flo, but here's a picture just in case...



If it would fit this bolt, that means I have the stock spring in right now, which could be messing with efficiency, as the stock spring isn't guaranteed to work perfectly with the NDZ bolt.

So if it would fit:
-Why wouldn't everyone use the weakest (blue) spring for the best efficiency and least amount of kick?
-Which spring should I use out of the three, or how can I find out which spring would be the best to use in my Mini?
Thanks again.

I got this used, and was never told it wasn't a stock bolt. Found out today actually! I'd like to buy that $12 bolt off of Boss paintball, but will it work fine? I don't really need the V2 or V3 or whatever do I?

Umm my springs dont work, they don't push the bolt all the way back after I shoot and it chops a **** load of balls, so I just use the stock spring with the v2 bolt.

Edit: The v2 bolt is also causing blowback so im rolling stock for now, stock has no blowback.

I'm going to buy that original bolt. It'll work fine I'm sure.
Jacking my own thread:
-Would compressing the stock spring (unbroken in) with a 10lb weight for 3 days straight constitute as a break-in period?

Id argue that there are indeed much better bolts than the stock one, and that the ndz v2 (havent tried the v3) and spring kit is a great combo. Youll be able to run your mini at much lower pressures and it will shoot better.You will just have to take the time to retune the gun properly.

When I had a mini I had the v2 bolt and was running the blue spring and had no issues. Psi was at 120 and the thing shot ropes.

For your original question, yes that spring kit will work with your bolt, thats a v2 bolt.

I would contact ndz. i believe there is a problem with swelling. my bolt i just had brought to a machinist and it was greatly over sized. It wsnt at the begining it was working fine. it slowly got worse until the bolt would stick. ive emailed ndz already im just waiting for a response
