I've used it in one of my project SP-1's. Worked awesome in it, was able to lower the operating pressure/increase efficiency with it.

....also got one for my G4, which caused nothing but problems and TechT refuses to help in anyway.

So i'm 50/50 with the L7 bolts.

I'm highly considering one for my GoG eNMEy on preorder if I can run it at lower pressure and increase efficiency. I'll probably shoot it bone stock a few times and get a feel for where it needs a little help.

They're good in Ion based guns, but unless you get the entire engine for DP guns then they're worthless.

I used 3 different bolts in my Ion. SP Firebolt, L7 Bolt and DW Hollowpoint Bolt

I would take L7 over the other two.

The SP Firebolt is really nice but it is heavier than the other two but never had any issues.

the DW Hollowpoint sometimes doesn't want to seal because of the o-ring.

The L7 is light and I never had an issue with it leaking.

The hollow point bolt doesn't have tail o-rings.
