Are delrin bolts are better than any other bolts and does this one I found look ok. here (http://www.alamocitypb.com/manufactpages/kingman.html) and here (http://www.alamocitypb.com/manufactpages/bolts.html). Also should I get it with or without o-rings and whats the difference. Also what bolts have you guys used that work good for an 04 imagine.

you want the o-rings, they help with blowback. i'm not good at explaining why, but i'm sure if you use that search feature that is so useful, you might find all the information you need. but if you really must know, you can pull that star thing (called the venturi) right out of there and that stock bolt will work just fine, but you'll have to adjust your gun a little, as the increased air flow will raise your fps a little

Would the delrin be better than the stock bolt or not. My gun was remanufactured and it looked like someone tried to shoot a rock with the gun because the front of the bolt is a little dented. Should I get a new stock bolt and do the venturi mod or get the delrin one instead. I also want to know if delrin is better.

what do you mean it looks like someone tried to shoot a rock? pics?
but an all-delrin bolt will not scratch up the inside of your gun

Keep the stock bolt and I suspect that dent you're speaking of is a milled indentation for the ball detent. It was put there on purpose - ;)

the front of the bolt where the ball gets cupped it looks all dented like someone tried to shoot a rock.

Ya, the front side, same side as the detent correct? -

No its not the indent for the dentent, its the front top of the bolt. plus I want a new bolt any way, and I think the delrin bolt has no venturi so less work for me. Also can I make my gun to low pressure with that delrin bolt, a new striker, a regulator, a new valve, and a spring kit. And am I missing anything else. I already found the parts and prices, and I already read otterSC customs and I just want to know if i'm missing anything important and thanks for the help so far.

unless it's a deep pit or gouge, try smoothing it out with fine sandpaper

It dosnt matter that much because i'm planning on getting a new one.
