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.
