I'm the other guy in the video hehe
Huge thanks to all of you who have helped me out with parts and guns for testing over the past months. You know who you are.
-----The cure bolt mod-----
What I have done=
1. Added two (size 15) o-rings to the bolts air intake hole.
Giving you 10-15 Feet per second gain over a stock cure bolt.
Requires a Lower HPR input
2. Fifty percent of the bolts breach contact points are removed with a section left behind the bolt pin hole for stabilization.
This means less bolt to breach contact and less bolt wear.

Question and answer section.
Q: Will the o-rings cause more drag and slow down the ego's cycle?
A: Yes/No- In my testing I did not see a rate of fire decrease. But in this 12.5 bps day, that's not a bad idea. So I don't see an issue with it slowing down the ego's rate of fire.
More tests with larger outer diameter o-ring tolerances will be done soon.
Q: Will I get better air efficiency?
A: Yes. Some air escapes around a stock cure bolt when the Ego is fired. With o-rings sealing the bolts air intake hole, all of the air is forced to escape out the bolts face now.
This means your Ego will need a lower HPR setting to get to your desired feet per second.
Q: How does this work with a SLS bolt and inserts?
A: Very very good. More testing will be done and this thread will be updated as I get more data.
Q: How do I now the o-ring depth and width is correct?
A: I use the same measurements from another Ego bolt that you can buy.
I will update this Q&A section as more topics come up..
