Superfly, Bandit bolt, AKA lightning just not Spudnukl unless you want to wait a couple months for it to get shipped. And the APM bolt looks good its basically like the Spudnukl, its made out of nylatron which is better than derlin but the only thing that looks like it could be a flaw is the no O-ring grooves so hopefully it fits right without them.

Yup, the aka is the best out there, but very expensive. Spuds great, but they are either swamped or really lazy and take a while to get, but worth it IMO. Right now, I think the best option is either the APM, which I have never sued myself, or the superfly, which is pretty good. Just as long as it doesnt have a venturi, it should at least be decent.

Actually, nylatron will swell more in oil than delrin, but the difference in either is barely noticeable, unless you regularly carry a micrometer to the field.

Looks like I'm gonna have to do all that research again, then repost it. It's not like anyone read it the first time around anyways.

Actually, nylatron does not swell at all, and derlin doesnt really either. In order to actually swell derlin, it had to be completely submersed for quite a while to swell enough to where you could tell by measuring. Nylatron doesnt swell at all, so either way you are pretty safe.

should the weight of the bolt be a consideration?? like a piston in an engine (reciprocating part).

The weight of the bolt doesnt have much affect on performance. I am sure that a lighter bolt would prolly allow it to cylcle a little faster or at a little lower pressure, but it wouldnt help enough to worry about.

bandit and spudnukl are good, lately spudnukl has been behind (for whichever reason that may be) bandit are nylatron too which are almost the same bolts but they dont have the problems spudnuk'l currently has. The shocktech supafly... very popular, delrin, it may have a tendency to swell due to temperature increments but will go down. And i noticed that if paint is left on it it may swell in certain spots (thats for the people to lazy to clean their gun or dont know how :() The nylatron can actually take oil and not swell, the nylatron is more sturdy and stronger than the delrin, its only suggested that oil be placed on the orings of the nylatron bolts, but if its on the bolt itself it wont harm it at all. AKA bolts another great bolt, but can get pricey.
