But man that would really be crazy to have a bolt action tippmann. you have to do some crazy milling to the body in order to fit in the bolt and level, on top of this the bolt would have to be milled out so that it had a channel the air could travel through to launch the ball. this would resemble a stacked tube spyder were the bolt has a hollow section that allows the air from the lower striker/valve system to move through it. but the body of a tippmann wont allow a stacked design so you would have to relocate the valve or have a hose transfer the air from the valve to the bolt......
ya i would say buy a pump.

agreed. It will be cheaper in the long run and work 100x better. The tippmann will always be super loud and ineffeicient, even if you remove the blow back. It is just inherit in the design.
Buy a nice cheap pump, and mod that into a Bolt action, or find a nice Sheridan K2, that is already bolt action, and buy that...though they run $400-$600 in cost, even though they are about 20+ years old.
You can mod other pumps into bolt action, sheridan is the easiest. But it still takes time and effort
