Bolt identification

Hello PBnation, I just purchased a used Ego 11 shiner it came with 2 bolts. I asked the gentlemen what the non-stock bolt was and he said he got the gun in a trade and didnt know. So now im wondering which of my 2 bolts is truly better and what type of bolt is the non-stock one.
I dont have a camera so I will discribe the non-stock one.
It is a milky white, the O-rings are spaced in evenly in the center of the bolt. The area the ball is pushed with is a clear rubber piece that can be pulled off. There are no marking on it.

thank you in advance for any help you can provide

Sounds like a Pooty bolt.

Look like ball detents.

Many people confuse "Pooty Bolts" with its proper definition. Everyone calls it a Pooty Bolt, when 90% of the time they mean a Pooty "modded" bolt with the material shaved off and orings added. The actual Pooty bolt that is pictured here and that you have is the latest model Pooty designed himself.

A Pooty MODDED bolt will be quieter and more efficient sure, not much but its noticeable.

A Pooty BOLT, from my experience was louder, though more efficient. I tried it on my Ego 11, and a friend has it on his Ego 08. Both increased in sound signature and it was very noticeable.
