im a newb...so i thought u veterans could help...i have a spyder e99......could i take my guts out and put it in a pilot body?

Yes. The only things you need to look out for are that they are both slim strikers (I'm almost positive they are) and you might wear out the detents quicker because the bolt might rub on them (stock pilot bolt has cutouts for the detents).

detents are fine, they are the same type as the pilot ones. if you did this you wouldnt be able to use the e99 guts in the pilot. well atleast the bolt.

Just be sure to clean up your blood when you do it. ;) (Sorry, had to say it.... lol....)

Yes, that's essentially right. The ACS I agree is the better bolt, and is better than risking shipping your mask from the returning bolt (no idea how many times I've done that...). Just remember to lube the marker when you throw everything back together.
