Are there any bolt upgrades for the e99 Avant that are not rear cocking? I was wanting to make the market look more streamline without the additional tail and bolt sticking out the back, as well as some anti-chop.

I don't think there are, unless you halfback it

yeah, youd have to cut up the body. the least being cutting a slot on top for a top cocking bolt.

The only way to do it with your current marker body would be to get an ACS bolt that's rear cocking, a screw the same thread as the one in the back of the bolt that holds on the cocking part, and a nut. Take off the rear cocking portion, thread the nut onto the new screw a little ways, and thread the screw into the rear of the bolt. When it's the right length for you, snug the nut up to the back of the bolt.

I have ran accross the ACS bolt online, but never saw it actaully on a marker. When the ACS bolt is fully cocked, is it shorter than the e99 Avant stock bolt? I think I can picture what bigred76 is describing. If that can be done neatly, that might be the way I would want to go. I do not want to cut the marker up because again, I want to do this to make it more streamlined and more appealing, and at the same time upgrade to a better bolt for anti-chop. Cutting the marker up would defeat the purpose.

Now that I look, the ACS has that huge rear portion that's directly attached to the delrin. Couldn't do it my way with the ACS, but it can be done with the stock bolt. Sorry!
