I wasn't asked to do a comparison or to test anything. He just said they are ready and available. I'll post results here once I have one. I want to list tail length if there is a difference and anything else I find.

For the G3, I hope they release the Spec R/G4 version soon.

That is not a new version of the G3 bolt. The original L7 bolt for the G3 looked totally different - basically just a lighter version of the original G3 bolt.

I'm guessing that they will do an "invisible" release with the shortened tail and you won't ever see "a new and improved" label on the package.

Yea but then why would they put v2 for the G3 bolt and not do it for the spec r/g4 bolt ? V2 would indicate that its a newer, improved version. Just seems weird.

that is incorrect, it is not just a shortened bolt, there are other things going to be included....

The G3 is older. Maybe they had a G3 bolt before the Spec-R/G4 was released.

Do you have inside information that the rest of us don't have? Are you referring to the vague statement made earlier in this thread about various changes and improvements? Techt hasn't made any definate statements about what the "new" bolt design will entail beyond shortening the tail like I have shown here.

i think they may have made a slight change to the backcap and possibly the bolt stop

Yeah I think Tim's post in here said something about possibly including 1/8npt threads for a gauge. Hopefully they will also make the cap volume larger so the dump chamber size is increased. I know that aesthetics plays a roll, but IMHO the current Techt back cap looks fine and wouldn't look hideous if it stuck out more to increase dumb chamber size.

Yes, I do infact have inside information about what is going on with the bolt..
I talked in great length with Tim about it, the day he actually posted up in the thread...
It was an hour long conversation with Tim about the mod and how Justicexd came about it, and at the time, I told him when he was giving you credit for the mod, that it was not you who actually came up with the mod, but infact posted a thread about it only...
Justicexd just never posted up a big thread about the mod before, and i had started telling people how to do it, based on what Justicexd told me, that is when you did the mod yourself, based on what i was telling others and posted up about what your results were, basically backing up my own statements about the improvements.

After talking to Tim for close to an hour, he talked to Justicexd for about an hour as well...
During this phone call with Tim he went into great detail about what he was doing, and explained the same thing as well to Justicexd.

I just never posted up a big huge thread about what they are doing, because people do change things overtime and I felt it is up to Techt to explain what is going to be released, when they are ready to release it...

So in short, Yes i know stuff, but i won't post it up, if they change their minds about what they are going to do, I don't want to look like a fool.

Thanks for the update.

By the way, I have never taken credit for discovering the mod. If anything all I have ever claimed credit for was posting how to do it and giving it legitimacy by showing actual results. I have made sure to give credit where credit is due. When Justicexd posted in this thread I acknowledged that this was his mod. I'm not reading into what you wrote, just making sure everyone knows I have no intention to take credit for someone elses discovery.

Also, I can't imagine how you would look foolish by posting in a thread about something Techt is doing based on someone elses discovery. Justicexd made the discovery, I followed what he said and posted picks and details, Techt took notice of my thread since it legitimized Justicexd discovery. If anything Techt should feel a little foolish for not having done further experimenting on their bolt. This mod is so simple to do. Personally I don't think it's bragging or a case of pride to say I did something and here is the results of my efforts. Perhaps the PB community would be much improved if there were a few more people who posted the results of their efforts as I have done.
