OK I have a bonebreak z4 bolt which has 2 o-rings, but the gun still has some blowback issues. How can I fix my blowback?

Besides trying a vapor bolt (doubt it would help), dont have much advice. You could put slightly larger o-rings on the bolt, that the cheapest way to try and fix it.
Whats your marker/hopper setup? just curious.

sometimes an o-ring bolt won't fix ALL of your blowback problems. however, i have found that when i put 3 WHITE co2 tank orings on my vapor bolt instead of the black ones that it comes with i get much more snug fit. so i'm thinking that they would seal slightly better than the stock o-rings. so you could try putting 2 tank orings on your Z-4 bolt....i haven't shot mine liek that yet but i don't think it would do anything other than either ruin the orings or not move freely enough in the tube and seriously affect your velocity at worst.

other than that i don't really know of any other ways to reduce blowback. btw if you decide to try the white o-rings, post a reply and tell me how they worked for you.

ok thanks, the co2 orings helped, now, my other reoccuring problem is that my ram refuses to totaly recock itself after every 10 or so shots, then when I set my gun above 165psi it starts to leak extreamely bad. Any suggestions, email me at curly2k32007 @ hotmail.com, I really need some help on this stuff.

i found a new problem with the co2 rings, the start to expand, then they start to tear, so I decided to remove the rear oring on my z4, tada! no more catching and it moves hella fast, but my ram still wont recock all of the way some times, got any ideas?

Make sure to lube your O-rings with Dow33 or Dow55. I've also heard that slick honey does miraculous things but have yet to see any hard evidence. Your ram sounds like it's sticking, try lubing the shaft. Also your bolt should slide relatively easily in and out of your gun.

If you want to go the more expensive route, a Halo B or reloader B will eliminate any blow back problems..

Well it won't really get rid of the blow back, it'll just make it so that blow back doesn't increase chopping (force fed = no balls can get blown up).

I tend to think that bolts that have all those O-rings have lots more drag. I could be wrong. More drag may manifest in a higher LP setting. I could be wrong though, I haven't actually tested any of this stuff. Just a guess.

yeah keep the o-rings lubed up there and that should ensure that it slides freely.

i have a vaporworks bolt on my BKO and there actually isn't much more resistence than the stock. if there is any it's very minimal cuz the o-rings JUST BARELY increase it's size. it's enough though to help prevent the gas from traveling up the feedtube.

exactly right, my best bet would be on the dow 33, or dow 55 to swell the orings making a supreme seal
