Bolts for KP2SC?

Hi all! I was cleaning/oiling my KP2 today and noticed the thin flange of metal/face of the bolt has been broken in two spots. I imagine this is not a good thing.

I started looking around for a new bolt, but I am having trouble finding them. I saw a couple of used ones at a place called Bacci--same style as my original bolt--and even a delrin one at a place called Celanis.

Any advice or opinions? I thought PPS had Cooper T bolts for KP rifles, but they are only for P-series markers, it seems.

Also, one last quick question, when PPS does a performance tune on a KP rifle, and they say "improved valving," does that mean they replace the old valving with a dyna valve etc., or is it not that involved?

Thanks very much!

PPS cooper T bolts are NOS.
Performance valve tuning is enlarge transfer hole between lower tube and barrel, new dyna valve, all soft seals, valve is change to single port and flowed.
PPS offers a new bolt for KP2.

A few cracks on the bolt face are no big deal. As long as the oring is in place, it won't be a performance problem. If the bolt has a small outlet hole, You should replace it with one that has been ported. This means a new bolt. When you order a new one, make sure that the detent location is the same as your KP. Sheridan moved the location mid run to thwart Cooper-T from selling their improved bolts.
I think your best option is to send the body to Palmers for a performance tune and a new bolt. You may want some wedgits banged in too.

Hmm... I have no reference for what a ported vs. un-ported outlet hole might look like. I do need new o-rings, that is for sure.

Here are some (terrible) pictures of the bolt, perhaps they will help? The missing chunk of flange is circled in the third image.

Replace totally? Just new o-rings?

Thanks again for all your thoughts, this is helpful.

That bolt has already been drilled out. The bolt is usable. Run some sandpaper over the rough spots, go to the hardware store and get some #9 o-rings. Oil the bolt generously and put on the new o-rings. Off you go.

Wow, a post from BretG and Jake....

Make sure you get some cocking lugs too. They have a tendency to shear.

Excellent, thanks for the help everybody. O-rings incoming.

Gazoo, the cocking lugs you mention... mine does look bent, if in fact you're referring to the small nub of rod sticking out the bottom of the bolt? Are cocking lugs another simple hardware purchase?
