none of the GT's!

As the origional manufacturer we obviously we need to state the mods will void the warranty on the parts modified or effected by the spring (powertube, bolt, valve) but not the rest of the drive or any part of the gun.

Pooty is a reputable guy and does some great work so if you are interested in this mod i would say try it, i have taken a look at it and i like what he has done.

The power tube and bolt is a direct swap?
Can any one else confirm this? and does Macdev sell them?

I would be interested in buying the parts as a kit, instead of shipping out mine. Hell I don't even care if they're pink.

There are some other threads where people have done this flawlessly. I think there was an Oring which was supposed to be changed out somewhere along the way.

I have a vx on the way to me tomorrow. I will find out what gt parts work in the vx by early next week. But I don't know if macdev has any more vx parts for sale. I will find out. I know some guys would rather have new parts so I am on it.

Hmm....
I definitely feel like this may be a great complement to the fitted orings that ShootNPoo offers - since the orings do fit tighter which may give FSDO. In the end, it will break in those orings nicely. Thoughts?

Does the spring cause any sort of accelerated wear on the power tube O-rings?

I would also be extremely interested in buying the modded components separate and keeping my originals intact. Any chance we could see that in the near future?

Once there are parts available to order, having one on its way here It can get colder up here in Canada and it does not seem like there are any drawbacks of doing this mod!

Highly highly doubt there is ANY change in efficiency all springing any spool bolt does is take dwell timing out of the equation... he isn't changing the physics of the bolt.


Having used his shocker bolts, and luxe bolts I can honestly say it does make life easier not having to worry about infamous fizzzzdddooo (fsdo)

Well the vid shows a massive 60 - 70 fps bump at the same settings with the spring. Now wont that make it more efficient because it takes less pressure to reach 300? The video don't lie. Or am i missing something here?

Even if you dont get better efficiency it still helps with Fsdo, wich is a plus if youre playing in the cold like me.

the pressure isnt changed. just the dwell. the stock dwell is 12 i think. at 100psi at 12ms the fps should be around 290ish. at 8ms at 100psi it is like 200fps. with this mod, if you are at say 100psi, at 8ms dwell, you will be shooting like you are at 12ms dwell. the psi doesnt change.

All the video did was show that he increased the bolt speed by inserting a spring which allows you to lower the dwell and still have the dump chamber fully emptied. I honestly think the video is slightly misleading as that jump in velocity means nothing in terms of any performance gain. The mod offers decreased bolt stick. A clone has a sealed dump chamber so long dwells won't decrease efficiency. Maybe you can get increased efficiency here by lowering the dwell shorter than the dump chamber time and INCREASING pressure. That usually makes a gun more inconsistent though.

Yeah the video in some respect is misleading because at stock settings you will see no gain.
