Default AKA Lightning Bolt Rear to Top Cocking?

So, I've been pretty interested in buying the AKA bolt for my LP Spyder, but the problem is that I've noticed that it's made to be rear cocking.

Is there any way to make it top-cocking?

Or does anyone recommend any other bolts for my Spyder that are top-cocking?

Hmm, I took a look at ACP's bolts, and found this:

http://www.alamocitypb.com/spydertop...conversion.htm

Is it worth it? 'Cause I do like the idea of removing the bolt without taking out the back cap, striker, etc. I assume they would be able to do it to an '05 Electra ACS since they did it to a Pilot ACS there.

id do it, you get the top cocking converison and choice of your bolt, cant go wrong, and even if it does you can find a new spyder body for cheap almost anywhere

I think I will do that. Just out of curiosity, if ACP does the mod, would that enable me to use Timmy bolts, as well as the ACP bolt? Or would that take more mods?

Sascha's right, unless you want to do some crazy milling and modding.

it wont work because the hole that the air goes through isnt as far away from the pin as the spyder bolt.

Ah damn, I though I had seen a few Spyders that people had managed to use Timmy bolts in them. Guess they were modded a lot, like psycho said.
