BOLT B4 PDW!

Hi friends!


Welcome back to the blog! Today I’m back with the reviews and in this one, we’ll be looking at the Bolt B4 PDW from Extreme Airsoft!



First up, let’s chat about the build! The Bolt B4 PDW is constructed from an alloy and a high-density polymer. It features an alloy receiver, buffer tube, ironsights, outer barrel assembly and mock suppressor, with the stock pad, pistol grip and magazine being made from Polymer. On the polymer receiver, we can find the ambidextrous magazine release, the fire selector which allows for safe/semi/full auto firing modes and the curved trigger guard. Along the top of the receiver is a 20mm RIS / RAS rail so players can add their favourite sights and it also has a top 20mm RIS / RAS railed handguard as well, to accept torches, lasers, PEQ boxes and other accessories. The handguard has an integrated hand stop built in to aid with stability and accuracy. At the very front of the weapon, there is a chunky mock suppressor and at the very back we have a PDW-style stock that can be adjusted to two positions - open and closed and is released using an ambidextrous release button located on the stock. 





It’s also worth noting that the handguard also features MLOK slots on the sides and bottom to allow for the attachment of more MLOK accessories, but that being said, aftermarket MLOK to 20mm Rail converters can be used if you want more 20mm space rather than MLOK.


Internally, the Bolt B4 PDW has the Bolt Recoil Shock System (BRSS for short) at its very core, which provides a heavy, weighted recoil upon pulling the trigger. It has a reinforced piston that delivers a strong kick to the shoulder every time it cycles rather than simply moving the dust cover backwards and forwards. It has a reinforced gearbox and is fully compatible with V2 parts and an adjustable rotary-style hop-up unit. It is front-wired, with the battery being stored in the handguard and connected by a Mini-Tamiya Connector.


Now we’ve got the build and internals out of the way, let’s look at the usability of the Bolt B4 PDW. It comes in a nicely presented box and is well-secured. Although it is a dinky rifle, it does have a nice weight to it thanks to the partial alloy construction. To access the battery compartment, you simply need to pull back the delta ring and remove the bottom of the handguard. It is quite a small compartment so I used one of the small Nuprol LiPo batteries. It comes with a 140 mid-cap which is what I used for the fire test - it is pretty nice that this comes with a mid-cap rather than the usual high-capacity magazines that are usually included with airsoft guns.


It shoulders nicely and is the perfect size to use in a tight CQB site - it is easy to manipulate around corners and doesn’t hinder progress. It Chronos pretty consistently at 335 FPS which is more than enough for any CQB site in the UK. It fires with no issues on both semi-auto and full-auto (and has a good rate of fire too). You can check out my fire test on TikTok here! The recoil is pretty impressive, it gives a good solid kick to the shoulder with each cycle of the piston and is much more realistic than the kick you would get from an electric recoil gun. So I think this is definitely something to take a look at if you’re looking for a CQB weapon that will add a little more realism to your gameplay.


Aesthetically, this isn’t everyone's cup of tea but I think it’s a really cute little gun, I like the chunky mock suppressor and handguard and you guys know I’m all about a PDW stock (as long as I can fit a battery in it without tearing my nails off, I’m about it haha).


In the box, you get the Bolt B4 PDW Rifle, a 140rnd polymer mid-cap magazine, a cleaning rod and the all-important instruction manual. From Extreme Airsoft, this AEG retails for £319.99, you can save 5% with the code ‘femmefatale21’
