The bolt in the G5 has porting at the base of the bolt. So if you look at the bolt in the G4 there is a recessed area between the bumper on the bolt and the tail of the bolt. They drilled holes there to allow more air to flow through the bolt when it is in its forward most position so therefore you can decrease the pressure.
here's the link to the ansgear vid that shows it:

skip forward to 20 seconds and they show you the bolt

The G5 is a clear slap in the face to the mid and high end gun makers!!! $330 for high end features like the G5 has is awesome.

1. macroless design
2. bearings in the trigger
3. operating pressure similar to mids and many high end guns
4. improved grips
5. not sure, but it looks like the back cap might be toolless
6. better set of tools than average
7. parts kit and spare o-rings

I think the G4 and G5 bolt/valve look VERY similar except for the holes. It looks possible that the drive trains are interchangeable. I wonder if the G5 bolt moves easier than the G4 version. Softer detents would be good too. Any idea what it comes in? Probably still has a cardboard box. I'm not overly fond of 1 piece barrels, but I use a barrel kit so what difference does it really make.

There are a few differences besides the holes IIRC. Really don't feel like posting up anything else right now since we have an edge.

All in all, I thought it was pretty decent for a stock setup.
Really smooth in terms of looks IMO and I can see myself using it as a go to marker.

It just just way rt is. Though I must be an idiot too since I don't believe on high ends. To me they are all aluminum that shoots 280-300 fps. What ever the company do to make it sound fancy it is still just another gun to me.

Can't wait how soon do you think that you guys will be producing and selling the bolts and how much do you think they will cost? Also this should work in the G5 because i don't see why dp would change the threads but we'll see once/if you purchase one.

As soon as we get some prototypes produced, we'll be probably be looking at 1 month or so after that to begin getting quotes for a production run. If there are any issues with the prototype's performance it may take longer so that we can correct them.

I did speak with a shop that is local with me today and the lady said she would email me the quote but as of yet, she hasnt

Due to a lot of shops failing to followup with us, we have posted up a global RFQ and expect to award the prototype production within the next two weeks or so.

Price wise, we're not 100% on it yet, although I can tell you that it will not be over $90 and that we plan on having it priced compete with existing bolt options. A lot of this depends on how many people we have interested and if we can get some stores to place initial orders. If we can get the stores on board, we may even be able to undercut the competition significantly.

As to working as a drop in to the G5, I can say with 99% certainty that we will need to tweak some dimensions since they are not the same.
