Lurker Bolt Axe

I purchased Lurker bolt for my axe gun and have heard all these great things about it. Must be like yelp where its all friends of the company reporting comments. I purchased the bolt and spacer arrived out of round. The lurker contact email link does not work. I get a hold of Ryan through PayPal and it takes a month to get new spacer. Install it in gun with very poor directions. The gun never shoots above 260 fps and all over the map in fps consistency. Try all suggested o rings, polish, and any other suggestions on forums with no resolve. Contacted Ryan and he agreed to refund, but I followed up asking for help to get it to work. No response. That being said i put old bolt in gun and it shots great and consistent. If you wanna to play paintball and not spend time on forums, making adjustments, and changing orings, trying to figure out bolt. STAY STOCK the gun shoots fine and smooth enough. Ps I have been in paintball since 1992 so it is not my first rodeo

I never saw you in the forums and I am one of the main people that answers there. Ryan is a mod, so it's not like he's going anywhere... perhaps PM him again? If that doesn't work then PM me and I'll help you out.

I could've walked you through it and got it working for you. Barring a tolerance defect, most of what causes an issue is elsewhere in the gun (almost always related to the poppet). Not sure why you started a new account to post your disagreement... perhaps you missed the point that he's a mod and will know who you are anyway. At any rate, the offer stands that if you really do want it to work PM me and I'll walk you through it.

This is the wrong section to post this as well. But anyways, I'm not affiliated with Lurker in any way and absolutely love my Lurker bolt. It turned my Axe into a completely different gun!

Ironyusa I appreciate your offer, and i don'tunder stand why people getting offended over my point of view/ experience., I was hoping for the same results as every one else. I want the gun to work as posted, so I apologize again for offending anybody. But at this point i am unsatisfied. The contact email on lurker website doesn't not work, so until I got working email through PayPal, they were hard to get a hold of.

I understand. It can be frustrating when you pay money for a product and it doesn't work as expected. The only thing is that Ryan (Lurker27) and Ross (Boss) are probably the 2 biggest supporters of their products in the forums. They are the 2 that continually go out of their way to help people out which is why I try to go out of my way to help them out. That said, you're still entitled to your opinion.

You should have 5 posts now. Please feel free to PM me.

BTW, Lurker27@aol.com is a known good contact email... I've used it many times.

Read your first post and then you might understand people getting offended. You basically called people like myself a fraud because I don't give an honest opinion due to being friends with Lurker. I've never so much as PM'd him, emailed him, or called him. You are also saying your experience is the norm by saying stay stock. You are the extreme minority. I've only seen a couple guys that absolutely cannot get a Lurker or Boss bolt to work great. I know Boss has offered numerous times to send guns to him for him to setup for his customers. I'm not sure Lurkers policy on that, but irony may be able to help. I have offered local people my assistance. I'd even consider accepting guns mailed to me to setup, but I would want to have a liability waiver first, since I'm not a company setting up their own product. And I'd offer it for next to nothing, just cover return postage and a couple bucks to cover o-rings and lube. I own a field so I tech guns all the time. I have an employee that handles mech markers and I handle electro markers.

My apologies for it not working, I sent you a troubleshooting email this morning. In fact it was my fault I had an email from you from your original problem that I totally missed (didn't see it until our more recent correspondence).

At any rate, I'll offer you tech support or a refund, as always.
