I would like to see a flat faced bolt (kinda like pooty51's bubble gum luxe bolt) for the g3 to help with rollback, which has been messing with the eyes on mine. That's the only complaint I have had with my bolt engine,
Price wise 50 and I would have to buy it, more then that and I would have to hear some really good review before I got it

Maybe a bolt that can work with the PMD, if that is feasible.

Have to admit, kinda got me curious. The stock bolt designs for the G3 and G4 are different (one has o-rings, other does not - o-rings in breach) so I'm curious as to how this system could be used for both types, considering the differences in the internal o-ring placements and such.

On a side note, if this would work for a G3, why not expand and tap the Threshold and REV-I market too? Very similar to the G3, just longer stock bolts.

i think they are referring to the spec r when they say g3. or maybe they will make two bolt systems?

Nope - both:

Which would you want a kit for first? The G4/G3 spec R or the G3?

Thanks for your time!

I would say
price 40-50
G3 and g4
Something quiet as a techt nicer tool less backcap with as good efficiency
Easy maintain with a bolt mod like pooty for less breech contact. Improves fps atleast 5-15

Will buy that in a instant.

Granted I'm tired as he'll and just checked my emails..

Not going to go the "pooty" route.
Seriously.

Looking at a version for the g3 AND g4/specr
Thing is: which one first?

For now, it's going towards larger markets.
I'll check into the revi and fusion.. But I am not sure if it would be worth making those since there would be less, as far as I know, demand.

Prices... Want all of these awesome features for $40-50 (or cheaper).. Including a back cap? Think about what you're saying.

Pmd? Pms? What?

Who says fps is everything?

Everything you just said makes the Techt engine better in my eyes..

They have both the G3 and spec-r/g4 platforms covered.

They have a bolt that WORKS and is proven to do so for what, $70?

Their bolts gain the marker FPS while increasing efficiency, decreasing noise, and smoothing out the shot.

a PMD is a pressure measuring device. It was made for the g3, but I'm not sure about the g4. It screws into the back of the marker, replacing the back cap. It has a gauge that tells you the operating pressure of your marker.

Think about these things^ before you invest into this. Can you really compete with an established company with an awesome reputation if you're not worried about delivering AT LEAST the same performance upgrades as them?

I would love to see a bolt that would use the stock back cap and still give a noticable performance increase. And G4 first, for sure.

Ps- If you ever need testers, here I am. Maybe a side by side comparison with my Techt. Just dreaming.

Pss- Sure am bummed I missed out on a Foehn.

I'm quite interested in what your thinking of doing. Keep this in mind though: Techt has proven itself to many of us regulars in the past (we are basically the main ones who post here) and many of us are loyal to them. Always have listened to us 12ish or so regulars and have helped us a great deal. If you can do this for us, and show us great results then I have high hopes for you guys

As for Preformance, obviously you'll want better efficiency, lower dwell, quieter and less kick. I do like the tool-less backcap, don't think it looks bad. Techt has a spacer between the bolt and the can, which can be annoying if it comes off and you put it in the wrong way. That could be one thing to improve on.

I would like to see a tool-less backcap, and maybe some more options for backcap color options instead of just silver and black.

O-ring less bolt: meh, doesn't bother me if the bolt has o-rings or not.

Bolt face: always liked Venturi style bolt faces. But maybe see if you can mill small slots in the side of the bolt for the detents, and possibly do a ramped bolt face (like that of violent) to reduce rollback.

Those are really the only things I can think of (besides the efficiency, dwell, kick, etc).

I know that we will all help you guys out, just bear with the few that talk about techt products

Was going to say.. that's what a gauge is called in these parts.. That would be easy enough to make.

Can you really compete with an established company with an awesome reputation if you're not worried about delivering AT LEAST the same performance upgrades as them?Thank you for the insight.. But I am pretty sure I put my money where my mouth is on a daily basis.

The less parts NEEDED, the cheaper the upgrade.

You're the second one to mention that. We'll see.

Bam. Some actual "I want this different!" Thanks!
I would like to see a tool-less backcap, and maybe some more options for backcap color options instead of just silver and black.
Starting off, colors will be.. simple. If there is interest and people want to pay for colors I am sure it can be done. Gotta focus on the actual kit first.

if you can improve more on what techt bolt engine did for the marker
but bring in better consistency as well, than i am sold
Could care less if it is 100.00 as long as it improves what is already there but gives it a + or - 3

efficiency is not bad for g3 markers with techt bolt engine, just as good as geos and people still buy them, the g3 is still one of the quietest markers i have shot with the techt bolt engine, just consistency is still not there yet.
If you can do this stuff, i guarntee you will sell the crap out of that bolt, there are tons of people that shoot DP markers, given that they are cheaper and easy to work with...

Funny how i see tons of people bash the marker, but i see tons of them at fields around me, not all people are rich or have rich parents.
looking foward to hear more on this project as it develops, maybe i can pick up something different for my g3 either before or after the ape gen 5 board ever gets released....

you can sign me up as a tester if you wish as well, I have 3 g3 se markers currently and a friend that likes to tinker with his dp markers alot has one, and i know 4 other close friends with g3 markers
wonder why they all bought one? well except the tinkerer hehe, that man has taught me alot.

@ Shru:

I also noticed that.
I owned a G3 for about two months (got it in a trade).
For what it is, the price is great and so are the features. I didn't play with it exclusively so it did not see the same use as my other markers, but there is no need to bash them.

$100? Too much!
