old school snipers and delrin bolts

Just curious how the old school cockers converted to snipers function with delrin bolts?
Is there any signifigance in keeping the original bolt-
Will a delrin bolt help with anything-

Can someone help me out?

On a 'cocker, delrin leaves for lower moving mass. On a sniper, that's just about useless. Unless the internal dimensions are different, it will react the same.

If you're going for efficiency, get something with O-rings.

The original bolts are tops for using unregged CO2.

I converted my 'Cocker to a Sniper so I kept the delrin bolt and detent. For what it's worth, the pumping action is super slick. I would have to agree though that the difference is not big enough to spend money on it.

as said, delrin on a pump is basically useless. and I will restate that oringed bolts would be key..

and true old school "cockers" were "snipers" only, lol
enjoy and good luck with the project.
