And why is the FX bolt $5 more than the Ego one? The 2-cent detents?

As soon as I logged on and saw the TechT, checked my account balance and bought it.

l)eathwish_MN, because it is an all new design while they have been making the Ego bolt for a while, and because Fusion FXs are sooo much better.

You know the manufacturer of those detents did not sell them to TechT cheap right?

Cool to see this bolt finally make it to market. I love that there are more and more options for us DP owners.

This bolt, and the Gen5 APE OLED, are enough to make me want to buy another FX.

Lurker Eigenram, TechT Hush bolt, and Gen5 APE OLED board........this would put the FX on par with the Ego.

That's it......I just talked myself into getting an FX.

What do you mean "on par". That sounds like exceeding to me.

Be sure to post up some good details as far as operating pressure before install, fps before install, and of course fps immediatly after install and new operating pressure after install and shooting field limits fps wise.

Unfortunately, I do not have a gauge to show my operating pressure, but I will be chronographing both before and after to show the difference in FPS prior to and after install. I will also give my opinion on the sound signature change.

I came home and found something in the mail. *Gasp* Could it be ? So ran downstairs and ripped it open to find this



So without further ado, how I installed the TechT Hush Bolt, I'm 90% sure this is the way you do it but since I didn't get any directions from TechT yet, I just decided give it a try.


In the package, you get Bolt w/o pin, a small bag of goodies, a sweet TechT sticker and your product ID.


The small bag contains new detents, replacement set of orings and your ever important TechT jewel.

INSTALL


First Take Your Bolt Out


Take an 3/16 Allan Wrench down the center of the bolt and turn left to loosen the inside. *Warning* It is on there really tight


The bolt pin spring should come out


And your bolt pin should come out easily


Now take a really thin pair of pliers down the center of your bolt to take out your bolt pin holder (Lack of a better word)




Now that you have everything out, store your old bolt and the screw holding the bolt pin spring in a safe place. Take note that the spring goes on the holder then down the back of the bolt just like in the picture and just like you would do when installing a Cure 3 Bolt.


Hold down the spring and push your bolt pin in SIDEWAYS. It takes a little bit of play to get the pin in.


Lube up the orings on your new bolt. I used Planet Eclipse gun oil because DOW 33 (Hater Sause, Lurker Lube, Monkey Poo, etc...) swell derlin and you don't want your bolt to swell.


Install back into marker like the original bolt


Remove eye covers


As you can see, the TechT detents *Left* vs the Stock Detents *Right* are finger style which makes them stick out farther into the breach making sure no balls are rolling forward and are held nicely.


Place the Stock detents in a safe place, and place the new TechT detents in their place. Then put your eye covers back on. Do the this step to the other side too. Air up your marker and test it.

*If your having problems with the bolt moving back*

Trim down the detents using scissors. Take off a tiny bit, test, if still not working, take off more. Repeat till bolt moves smoothly.


Peel off the jewel and apply jewel perfectly onto the back of the bolt, you wanna make sure it is level because it will really piss you off if it isn't.


The finished product

Now you can go shoot ropes. Sorry about the spammage.

you can actually use a light amount of Dow33 on the bolt with no problem. Delrin actually expands in heat more than it will with lube day or night

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
