TechT bolt issues.

The rubber bolt tip keeps falling off. No matter if it's a new tip or old one. Anyone had this issue? I haven't been able to play with my Etha since October.

Are you sure you are correctly seating the bolt tip? It's not too difficult but it could have one slot out of place and having it come off during the cycle. It also could be your spring keeps catching on and ripping it off.

I am quite sure, man. The tip doesn't fit properly. If you take the stock bolt and the MRT bolt, the tip fits the stock bolt like a glove.

You're MRT bolt could be a defect and was machined wrong. I'd email Techt about a replacement.

Once You Got New Bolt Did You See A Vast Improvment In Firing?

I have not yet recieved the replacement bolt. But, when it worked, it shot great. I recommend the mrt bolt.

I sent mine back and they replaced it but I still had same problem. Also on the package it says it requires a light coat of lube but nowhere on there Web site does it explain or show where lube is applied. Although I also ordered new etha bolt tips which are way better then the ones that come stock with etha . It seems to have fixed problem. New bolt tips sit flush and right on stock bolt and mrt.

I just want to know if the TechT can make it any quieter. I think this I good little gun stock but it's SO loud. What? I SAID IT'S SO LOUD.

The reason it's loud is because of the large over bore .693 stock barrel and its lack of porting. The firing mechanism does contribute, but try a smaller bore barrel with more porting and you'll notice a difference right away.
