I was looking at the dp g4 and i saw a main problem with it was bolt stick. what is bolt stick? When could it happen/where might it happen? will changing the stock bolt (to a techt bolt) make the bolt stick stop or is it the gun itself?

 

Thank you

Bolt stick is pretty much what it sounds like. You go to pull the trigger, and nothing happens. You hear a puff of air, but the bolt is stuck and hasn't moved. Basically, what happens is the o-rings get stuck when they haven't been fired in a while. The force from the air pressure is usually enough to overcome this and the gun shoots normally, but in some guns, whether there's too much lube or not enough or it's got the wrong kind of lube, the stiction is greater than the air pressure can handle, and the bolt just sticks.

 

When properly lubed with the right stuff, bolt stick stops being an issue most of the time. Different bolts can change things by using less o-rings, adding or removing different forces and levels of force, etc.

 

The important thing to remember is lube your bolt properly, utilize the anti-FSDO settings on the gun's board, and that should solve bolt stick problems.

A simple fix for 99% of the G series' bolt stick, is to use any brand of dow33 that ISNT the stock DP lube.

To add on to this, if you buy new, wipe off the Dangerous power lube and apply a fresh coat of whatever dow 33 you are using!

It will most likely make the bolt stick stop, but there really is no reason too when using good lube will fix the problem and be much cheaper

By using the TechT bolt, you are removing an o-ring and extra friction from the system, so it would help in that aspect.

Gold cup works, though grease is recommended for spool's, oil has a tendency to get shot out the barrel easier, while grease stays on the o-rings longer

I would agree accept I tried 2 different greases, not including the stock DP and it always stuck.  A small amount of oil on the bolt and its been a champ since.  Definitely do not over lube it.
