Shocktech Bolt vs Stock Bolt Acomparison/Review
Posted 24 August 2005 - 04:31 PM
I got to test it for the first time with paint on a hot North Caroina summer day. I noticed the usual diffrences but also that I chopped alot less. With the stock bolt I would chop 3-5 times a day using Scorch paintballs. The whole day I didnt chop once using Scorch and Heavy Metal.
When I finally went to clean my marker the day after I set out the Shocktech bolt alongside the stock bolt and set a paintball on each. I took a picture to show the diffrence. Shocketch on the left stock on the right. Notice the way the Shocktech bolt cradles the ball and sits deeper and the stock bolt has the ball much higher up. The shocktech bolt gives it much more of a cradled push out of the barrel.
This works great with polished internals. These are mine.
If you really want to silence your 98 get a Shocktech bolt, polish your internals, and put some shrink tubing around your sear spring. All those work together to really quiet your marker. I know of the hot debate over Shocktech vs Stock bolt. Id reccommend it but its really up to you.
