Although its usually the case. It's not always true.

Actually, aftermarket bolts in higher-end markers are better. Some increase efficiency, some reduce kick, some make it easier on balls.

This topic isn't News, however. Next time please post it in a more appropriate section, like Veteran's or General. Thanks!

i think it really just depends on the bolt. on otter's site with his LP guide, he has the measurements of the FPS changes from diffrent bolts

the marker just has to be properly tuned for a specific bolt.
