What exactly does it do compared to the stock one? I honestly have no idea if I already have one in my Trracer...

Performance-wise I didn't notice any difference. It's stronger than the stock aluminum one I suppose?

Yea, stronger. Some of the older trracers/mavericks had bolts made of cheese grade aluminum. They would wear out where the sear catches the bolt. Beyond that, SS internals slid just that much more nicely inside the receiver.

You would want one if it was something that you planned to use roughly or use for a loooong time.

The aluminum ones had a bad tendency to strip the threads for the screws for the pump handle from what I remember. Other than that it functions just the same. Not a big deal if you don't disassemble your marker too often. I think they would even offer to replace them for free when the marker was still in production.

Edit: Also yeah, where the sear catches the bolt. Forgot about that one.
