Techt bolt for 2k11 proto rail?

I need someones opinion. I'm not looking to spend my whole paycheck on a gun I'm looking to upgrade my current one. Is the techt bolt a good investment?

are you needing more efficiency right now?

Do you like your current trigger a lot, and do you have a barrel set to bore match paint? You want the marker to be as comfortable as possible, shoot good paint and then if you need more eff than your getting look at a bolt upgrade then, and then yes TechT is a nice upgrade.

A good barrel kit will help with accuracy and a little efficiency.

I use mid grade paint and use either a .684 or .682 bore back.

If it was me I would get a smaller bore size back for your UL or invest in a nice barrel system.

I have a 2011 proto reflex and bought the tech t bolt for my gun... I am using the stock bolt now

If you really want a tech t bolt PM me I will sell you my lightly used one but if it was me I would spend the money on something else.

The bolt will definately give you a boost in efficiency and a smoother shot.
I would recommend getting the following before the bolt:
Barrel Kit
Metal Feed clamp
on/off asa

The techt bolt improves the 2011 rail more than it would improve the 2011 reflex. This is due to the internal differences with the air passages.

Get a deadlywind barrel. Make sure you get the pro version it takes all freak inserts. It's carbon fiber so it's light AF, and it shoot's just like a freak. And I've been looking for an answer about the TechT bolt as well.

Spend your $ on good paint, not on your gun.

Bolt is $80 though so instead of paying 30ish for a case you could get high end paint for 50 using the money you saved to pay the difference. So you could in theory upgrade to high end paint 4 times... I understand I'm assuming you only buy low grade just want to make a point.

I bought a TechT bolt for my PMR and even though noticed a difference I still felt it was over priced. I parted it 2 weeks later

I see, well that is good. It was nothing against you personally I just wanted to make my point since shooting quality paint is often overlooked.

Yeah bro I'd only get it if you had extra cash. However a tuned TechT bolt makes PMRs shoot amazing. I would say it shot like a luxe but more of a puff and less of a chuff.
