Orange Bolt

Recent had this fall into my hands. I’ve been told it’s a prototype Orange Bolt. Wondering if people could shed more light, I haven’t been able to find much info on it around the inter webs. I’m in the process of building a Hornet. Wondering if this would be a good choice? Or if I just should get the soft tip bolt from ID.

Orange bolts are pretty highly sought after, I'd say give it a go.

On the subject of soft tipped bolts, I have 2 friends who each bought an Inception cocker that had one (one hornet, one Predator) and both had pretty ridiculous blowback issues that are impossible to get rid of. I'd avoid those bolts. No amount of timing or o-ring replacements could get them to work right.

Thatís good to know. I remembered reading about people having blowback issues or problems with the tip falling off. I like the CF bolt, supposenill give it a whirl. How much of a difference, if any would I notice from bolt to bolt?

Just an aside note, it's plausible to get blow back on bolts not cut for rings as tolerance from body manufacture and bolt manufacture vary. But by all means test it to yours, you might score with ringless Nirvana.

It really depends on what you're comparing it to. If you're comparing it to a stock aluminum bolt, you'll definitely notice the weight difference. You'd be able to lower your LPR quite a bit, which will decrease kick. In terms of efficiency, you probably won't notice too much.

Delrin bolts are of little benefit for Autocockers. On a Sniper it can smooth out the pump stroke significantly.
With that said, since you already have the bolt go ahead and use it.

The LPR still needs to be set at the same pressure b/c it still needs to have the same force to re-cock the gun with each shot.
