Yes, but I suspect it would fail fairly rapidly, as it is under stress from the mainspring.

F it let's make it out of titanium. Would it be cheaper and possible to make it out of brass?

One issue i found with the Empire Trracer, the bolt lip wore down from the sear, with the quickest fix being to flip the bolt. After that, need a new bolt. Then Simon stepped in at some point and said a steel bolt was available.

However, the Trracer's sear is metal. The H7 sear is not. I'd imagine the sear would wear out before the bolt lip would.
The H7 has a steel sear.

And pump gun front bolts have been made out of aluminum for years with out problems. I have a few pumps that have thousands and thousands of shots through them over the course or the last 10 to 20 years and they have never failed.

Lou said it's hard anodized which makes the difference and the trracer was not hard anodized. As far as when and if it will fail I have no idea. I personally think brass is the way to go. Slightly more sense and it may mean a smoother pump stroke but that's me and I'm probably wrong

front bolt does not effect smoothness. its all about ant kink.
Those stainless bolts don't do s*** to make the stroke smoother on the Trracer. what the Trracer needs is a velocity adjuster tube the fits tighter through the hammer.

I'm thinking of the wrong thing, sorry. Get confused since there's the sear is on the hammer in nelsons. I was thinking of the trigger being composite, and how the back of that might wear down eventually. But come to think of it, maybe the Trracer's trigger is composite, too. I'm guessing triggers on nelsons aren't known for wear issues?

It's smooths the Contact points of the inner walls of the body to the outer surface of the bolt which is sliding across it. If the bolt was made out of a smoother material that would smooth the stroke a tad. But I don't know how much smoother one might be over the other if at all. As far as the tpc sliding through the hammer it doesn't. It slides over the pt through the spring I don't think it ever passes through the hammer. Once again I could be wrong
