Gettin a quest

Just finalized a deal for a quest. I know that it has the gold member bolt I am not sure what board it has. I have read threads that said an ape board exists for these. Does that have an oled? What is considered the best board to have in it?

There's no OLED board currently available for the quest (that may change with the DNA board), they're all LED. There's no best board, though I personally favor the Lucky boards; there is however a disliked board, which is the WAS, since they originally had a tendency to fry, however with the amount of time that's gone by, if it hasn't fried by now it's probably not going to do it at all.

Ok cool thank you. I was trying to decide if I should get the lucky board or try to hunt down a virtue or ape board. Any other recommended upgrades?

recommended upgrades are- 4b bolt (good luck finding one but if you can its the shizz) - on off asa - juit mods on the lpr (and stock hpr if its still on there) -
panel grips (with wrap around fingers from spd) if you prefer a thin frame-
If you were going to hunt down an ape or virtue board I'd go with the virtue if the price is the same- or which ever is cheaper... both will do all you need.
critical feedneck if you can find one-
barrel-- unless the 007 barrel you get is smaller than 691-696
stuff is getting tricky to find but its worth looking for.

I found a 007 barrel kit. So thats sweet and done. So virtue or lucky board? Would it be worth going to the critical bolt over the GM bolt? I know that the 4B bolt is supposed to be the best but if they are really rare I am not going to count on it. Anyone got a pic of one? On off asa is easy. I will post pics when I get it.

Virtue for me- uses standard eye connector where the lucky uses a special one
Performance wise they are even I'd say

So is the critical bolt any better than the gold member? Anyone know where to find a 4b bolt?

About the same, except the RSF has a pad on the bolt face and should be softer on paint; efficiency should be about the same, try to get the thicker critical bolt guide, that'll help with efficiency a little more.

You'll have to look long and hard in the BST's for a 4B, not many people that have them are willing to let them go.

So news on my quest. Came in today, doesn't cycle. From what I can tell the noid is messed up. The guy told me it was working perfectly. Now he is telling me he has taken the noid apart and put it back together. And all the wiring has been replaced for some reason. So now I am, stuck with a non functioning gun.

If I were in your shoes, I'd try getting a $60 refund and getting a replacement 'noid on my end; they're usually $45-$50 + shipping. If you have soldering equipment and experience, you can try fixing the 'noid as long as it not a burnt coil (even then, you can probably get the coil section from SMC pneumatics).

I he wasn't interested in helping me at all or making it right. I want to send him the gun back and he give me the full refund, he's not interested in that either. Basically telling me too bad. I an tryIng to get the refund and I will go find one from someone else who is honest.
