Insight Soft Shot

Anyone else using the soft shot in their insight? Overall it has done the oppsite as advertised and I have worse efficency. I am going to do some more testing as well as tear down and rebuild the drive but I can't figure it out. There is a huge thread on PBN about it and overall most poeple saw an improvement and some said it was no change but I have yet to see anyone have the issues I am having.

my gun came with one so i dont know the difference, my only issue ive been having is with the can coming lose, and the bolt head unscrewing from the shaft.. efficiency seems like what i would expect. but again i have nothing to compare it to..

I just got mine in the mail and won't be playing again until the third week in January, but I'm hoping to put mine through the paces at a two day scenario.

Just an FYI to those with the soft shot. I spent some time talking to Zach about it. From what I have read and what he says the soft shot was designed to do are not exactly the same thing. Per Zach it will feel "kickier" then stock do to more pressure required for the soft shot(mine chrono'd down 30 FPS, had to bring the HPR up about a quarter turn). It will be better on brittle paint though, that was the idea of the design was to slow down the bolt speed and be better on brittle paint. Noise and feel where not a concern in the design.

If you are having issues with the soft shot make sure the tail o-rings are replaced with good buna 70's. He said sometimes 90's get on there by mistake. He also said to make sure if you are using the silver bolt head to lube it with triflow. I guess the soft bolt tip has a ton more drag in the breach and can cause efficiency issues.

Mine definitely slowed my FPS down. Straight swap from the factory bolt took me from 275-283 to 233-240. I didn't notice any other change other than efficiency dropped. The Valken paint I was shooting wasn't brittle, so I switched back to the stock bolt for the final battle at the big game I was playing in to gain the efficiency back. I don't shoot brittle paint often, so I don't know that I will keep the soft shot in.
