Sorry Folks I have been away from PBN for a while now due to limited internet access

I want to thank Lurker once again for letting me do the testing on this bolt

My review? Hmmm... I have had the stock, NDZ + springs, and the RI Bolt in my Mini over the past years and I can honestly say with 100% confidence that this bolt tops the list as my favorite.

Will you get 2000 balls per 68/45 or 48/45 etc? No.
Will you see improvement over the other bolts in efficiency? Yes!
Will you be able to shoot brittle tourny paint without ball breaks. I DID and still continue to do so. This, to me is the biggest selling point.


Have you ever put your finger in the breach of a Mini with the stock bolt and pulled the trigger? I did It was quite painfull.

Ever put your finger in the breach of a Ego and pull the trigger? No pain at all!

This bolt is designed to be soft on paint and that's what it is. Not only was I able to put my finger in the breach and pull the trigger (I do not recomend doing this) with no pain, but I tried to pinch/break/chop balls in the breach through various methods of holding the ball in place in the breach and half way into the feedneck and could not get the bolt to break a ball

Whatever Lurker is charging for this bolt is worth it.

This bolt puts the Mini where it belongs! On the Tournament field competing with the high dollar guns all day long.

I'm guessing that there have been some unanticipated problems?

I just went to fix things up this weekend and I had to purchase a few more things - Anyone with an outstanding order that doesn't want a full refund between now and when they ship, I will deduct 50% from your order for the inconvenience. My apologies, again.

At some point the bulk of them are likely to have the 0.3mm radius causing the binding issue removed.

Everything should be ready to go, I believe, they'd still be hand polished at this point, though, and I will probably be seeking a professional solution in the future, if you care about them looking slightly "cleaner".

I don't believe that there will be any performance difference, and I will take special care of anyone taking the plunge early. I wouldn't put a minor delay in shipping if I get swamped past me, though, so be advised.

Its all good to me. I know the wait is for a better product. I would rather wait to have a fine product then get a messed up product that is not finished.

Or any other invert mini bolt

These seems to be like a real winner!
Not just some hype

think of it in terms of the bolt being different hammers, and the spring you are changing is the valve spring, sometimes there will be too little or too much tension on one end.

the bolt is made of delrin, making it lighter and less friction. so a spring kit SHOULD work with this bolt.

good job with reading.

Just to pipe in

The Mini was designed to use the stock bolt with the stock spring, but I've found that using a weaker spring with the stock bolt lets me shoot at a lower pressure

Even if Lurker designed the bolt to be used with the stock spring, the Eigenbolt won't explode or cease to function if using a different spring
