Anyone have any bolt suggestions for a Mini? I'd like to spend no more than $30. I know a few that exist, but which one(s) out-perform the others?

EDIT: IF I even need one. I don't think it's necessary.

The NDZ V2's were the "greatest thing ever" at one point.. But now all I hear from mini owners is "Just use the stock bolt." I

I am still using my stock bolt, with no issues, but the V2 is supposedly the best "upgrade." Are you having any problems with your bolt/efficiency? The stock bolt is pretty darn good as is.

I'm just having issues with where I should set the Mini's dwell and regulator pressure. It's at 200psi but if I lower it to 190 I can't get the back cap out far enough. I want less kick too. Less kick means lower dwell? What do I have to do once the dwell is lowered? Anything? Does this make sense?

I haven't really had to mess with mine since I got it in 08, but dwell time won't effect the felt "kick" of the gun- mine barely kicks at all as is, but the V3 (newest version) bolt from NDZ claims to help reduce kick and a set of springs might also help with that. I'm not sure I completely understand all your question, but as far as I can tell:

200 psi is fine, I wouldn't go lower than 180, but I'm not sure why you are having issues at 190.

How much kick are you getting? Mini's are known for having very little. Wish I could be of more help than that.

I'll try and set it at 190 again. If I can have it around 27-280 that wouldn't be bad. That just means better efficiency. As far as kick goes, I don't think it's enough to matter. I might be able to suck it up and just deal with it. I'll shoot it tomorrow and check these things. I meant I can't get my back cap out enough to have a velocity at field standards when the psi is 190.

Hmmn- that's odd, as you should be able to run at as low as 180. How much velocity adjustment do you have to make with the screw to get it to field-legal range without cranking it all the way up? I assume the marker is properly cleaned/lubed, so other than giving it a quick takedown and reassemble/lube, maybe the spings and bolt will help, though I've never had to mess much with mine. Aside from that, I'm not sure what to tell you to do. Sorry :laugh:

I've taken it apart multiple times and lubed it as well. I take the back cap out enough that it's flush with the whole piece that the cap goes in. The velocity drops when I start getting it out far enough though. I'm thinking about sending it in to KEE and having them make it perfect :laugh:.
Now its leaking out of the little hole on the bottom back of the regulator/asa. If you looked through the hole you would see the tank threads. It's not the silver bleed hole and screw. Any solutions? I JUST put the Ninja regulator on my tank so the o ring is fine.

Sorry, man. I got nuttin'. As I said, never had to mess with mine, so I really haven't gotten deep into messing with it. If it were my Bob Long or Tippmanns, no problem, but I'm not a Mini expert by any means. Keep me posted, though, since I'm very curious as to what's going on.
