09 Impulse custom bolt

Here it is on the gun. It's not the prettiest thing, though I'll probably end up removing material to make it look better.
These next two pictures illustrate the rollback issues with the stock bolt, and how much better the new bolt is.

The spacing and number of holes in the bolt face isn't exactly ideal, but this bolt was more a proof of concept than an actual finished design. I may end up making another more refined design.
I'm not too worried though, as the main problem was the rollback causing the eyes to not see the paint, or clipping the next paintball up since it's sitting so far into the breech, and this new bolt solves those problems.

Thanks! It actually rides on two o-rings inside of the breech on either end, as well as one on the back of the bolt to prevent blow back air. Like I said before, this was made out of left over delrin I was using for pressure testers, so it's not the best quality (which you can probably see on the bolt itself, with lots of surface fraying). I'll probably get some better delrin and re-make the bolt, along with a bigger flow path through the front
thats genius. i would make sure its not causing extra breech wear though. pretty smart.
you should do it for egos
Somehow I don't think I can compete with the Cure 3, Pooty or TechT.

And yes, Gordon is the sexiest manifestation of "to the front."
