Question Billy Wing Bolt Worth It Used?

It seems that the overall consensus towards the Billy Wing bolt is that it is not worth the money. I have the opportunity to get a used Billy Wing bolt for a DM11 for ~$50. Would this be a worthwhile upgrade for a DM11 for that price?

Considering you could sell it for $75 pretty easily, I would say to go for it, then tell us. I just put one in my PM8... pretty much for the hell of it. After I get a couple games in on it, I'll be able to tell you for sure.

i dont think its worth it. i actually had the chance for change out my stock dm6 bolt for a bw bolt, and my stock bolt felt smoother on the orings so i kept it.

If your stock bolt is broken in (and MOST used guns it will be) the BW won't be as smooth.
It'll be smoother than a brand new stock bolt, though.

I'm on the fence with one for my DM12 for that reason... my stock bolt is SMOOTH, but I REALLY want the darned carbon fiber tube.

This.

Dark Ripper. I do have a BW bolt for the DM12 I'd you're interested. Throw me an offer. The cf sleeve is what makes it on a dm12.
