Default "Low Bolt" from Alamo City PB

Well I recieved a prototype "Low Bolt" (not really considered prototype anymore since you can buy it now) from Alamo City and I figured I would share my experiences.



The bolt is well made, like all their other bolts, the head of the bolt is cupped so it is very gentle on paint. The design really amazes me that it actually works. You can even say it has the "Flatline" effect for I saw my own pballs floating!

The range and accuracy was superb, as there was a noticable difference. There was no blowby, except for the occasional.

The only flaw I actually see in the bolt is that it's only made for a select few markers. I put this bolt on my amg and plan to mod a pin on the side so I can use this bolt permanently(sp?)

If you have any questions feel free to ask, I know I didn't cover everything. I'm bad with reviews

Thanks to Alamocity for providing the bolt!

It's a pretty fair price compared to all the other bolts.

A reason, because the air is flowing bottom half of the ball "low" giving it a "flatline" effect (slight backspin)

You would have to ask alamo to see if they'll make a pilot version for you, but it's only available for Imagines and Victors.
