another acs thread

i think i know why people get mixed reviews on the acs bolt. i was looking at the design of them and i tihnk some perform better than others . if you look at the rear cocking design it has more room for the spring to compress because it has a long cocking rod which goes most of the way into the bolt when the spring compresses, allowing less chance of ball break. now take a look at the imagine bolt, it looks like the cocking knob is not far from the end of the bolt like less than an inch, so it doesnt allow any room for the spring to compress. hope that all makes sence. anyways just something i noticed, anyone wanna shed some light on it?

I don't understand fully but i think i got the basic of it.

That shouldn't have any effect on it at all. Both bolts should be the same length almost. Rear cocking just has a piece sticking out so you can cock it from the rear(makes sense )

The spring i believe is also the same length in all the bolts. So they shouldn't matter at all.

The design of the acs is perfect in my opinion. Except you need a lighter spring on it.

Hopefully I understood it right.

u almost got it... the cocking rod on the rear cocker doesnt have anything to stop the spring from compressing the entire way, but go look at a picture of the imagine acs bolt, it has a very short cocking rod with wich extends like an inch out and thre are 2 knob things for grips to pull it back or whatever, the 1st is probably less than 1/2 inch close to the bolt and when the spring compresses it wont be able to compress all the way because that little knob grip thng will stop it, causeing it to only be able to compress that 1/2 or less

The spring compression of the imagine bolt is limited by the slot on the bottom the hammer lug extends out of. It is 1.5 inches long. The handle used to cock the gun slides all the way into the bolt.

I bought that one for $30 slightly used on BST, no stains or visible scratches. The sticker on the package says $44.99.

Edit. Haven't used it yet. I'll rig up a chop test as soon as I get everything done and back together. Look for it tomorrow morning.

i see that it isnt limited by what u thought it was, but not i see that the slot is shorter than the rear cocking still making it a shorter compression rate

For the chop test just glue string to some cheap paint and lower it halfway into the chamber. It takes some trial and error to get it in the right spot so it doesn't shoot, but I "chopped" a ball 7 times without it breaking.
