Selling an upgraded bolt kit for a gun is Bob Longs idea? What?

As long as there have been paintball guns there have been people making and selling upgrade parts for them. Certainly not something anyone in particular had a monopoly on before the IVCore kit came along. In fact we've been making upgrade bolt and internal parts for guns going all the way back to the original autococker. Please. No need to add any kind of confrontation to this.

And to Outcast Kid, I pronounce it Ivy Core

Don't sell yourself short Jack. This is much more then just a bolt kit.

No...but it isn't just a new bolt. It's a new engine. The autococker equivalent would be a new bolt, new valve, new ram and new hammer. Just putting a new bolt into an autococker does not really change how the gun feels and shoots.

It is an upgrade of all of the guns mechanical internals not related to regulators.

So it is just efficiency gains? Or will the shot quality (smoothness) also be affected?

Either way I'm planning on upgrading from my 2.1 even though the 4Core (see what I did there?) will fit in it.

It's supposed to make the Geo 3 shoot like a GSL. I can't speak about smooth the GSL is compared to the Geo 3 though

You mean just like all the parts we used to make for cockers? Bolts, valves, rams, LPR's, QEV's?

Sorry, I just don't get your original post.

BatmanLeira, I have no involvement at all in US sales. Sorry. But I would imagine there will be one or two places around that area that will have them this week.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
