Well, more likely this is just to recapture the lost sales to the emek/170/etha crowd buying SSC bolts.

I'd like to see a side by side comparison for the SSC and these. There probably wouldn't be a difference but it'd be interesting to see.

They look identical other than my SSC bolts are anodized red.

Red makes things go faster.

Had the pleasure of shooting the bolt at the ICPL this weekend in Chicago. John hand delivered as promised! Which was awesome. Bolt shot flawless. The paint we shot was very small and inconsistent so was hard to gauge if there was any effect on velocity from the bolt. I think The shot signature is reduced. But it shot ropes and I Definitely recommend this as an upgrade. Your essentially turning the gun into very high end gun. You have the soft bolt and the gamma core. My gun also has the 45 valve and all the inception upgrades (body kit, trigger etc). Cant imagine it getting any better!

I had two people struggling with paint at ICPL who switched to one of these bolts and said their guns broke less paint or no more paint right away. Personally, I am a firm believer of checking the hopper, 013 orings for a snug fit, fresh ball detents and a slightly oversize barrel bore first. But if the bolt helps, use it. I know I only use it in my CS2.

I’ve had one in my EMEK for almost a year now, but I bought someone’s CS2 Soft Faced Bolt.

Never broken any Paint and I think the 60 durometer Viton Orings I use in the 013 Bolt Guide spots also help some because they don’t wear out and resist compression better than the stock Buna Orings.

I use an 013 X-ring in the rear bolt guide spot. Problem solved. I have not had to replace one since I put the first x-ring in.

Interesting. Does it provide enough resistance to the bolt for good paint handling?

It does and I have not had any issues with the compression, although, I still store the engine with the bolt slightly forward off that oring.

BTW ... I installed a soft tip bolt in the emek, and it did lower the fps about 10 or so FSP over the hard tip, but I like the new internal soft tip, and plan on shooting it this weekend in the emek.

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.
