View Full Version : problem with my gun

01-29-2006, 06:37 AM
I have a pilot acs 05, the internal parts are all stock, I have a redz feedneck and a halo hopper, but when I start firing with two fingers, or in auto mod the paintballs goes anywhere they want, down, to the left, ecxept where i´m aiming:(

I use evil paintballs, I have the stock barrel but the acuraccy is bad.

Do I have to change something in my gun?, Do I have to upgrade internal parts??

OHH!!!! also the my friend´s electra do the same... :confused:

... well it's really cuz of your stock barrel .. try buying an aftermarket barrel like tear drop, j&j ceamic, or a cp 1 piece.

It also could be worse because your barrel isn't clean ... and there's also a big chance it's occuring because of your co2 .. which im assuming .. since it spikes like crazy

You´re saying that using compress air is better than CO2???

What did you get your gun chrono'd at? try borrowing a barrell and see if it makes a difference. also take a few balls and check to see if they roll fine across a flat table, if they are slightly eggshaped they will go everywhere

Stock barrels almost always suck on lower end guns. I got a 14" Dye Proto on my pilot which is really nice for mid-range shooting and shoots through breaks very nicely,I also noticed the pilot shoots a tad high velocity which can cause balls to curve madly, you can get 32 Degrees Spring kit on ebay for less than $10 shipped. The Dye Proto barrel cost me about $50 at a local pro shop.

i´m a lit nebwie in paintball...so be patient with me:p

What do you mean "32 Degrees Spring kit", what they do??? what do the spring do? what is it?:confused:

The long springs are "main" springs. These control the tension put on the striker/bolt, affecting how hard the bolt hits the ball.

The short springs are "valve springs". These affect how hard it is for the striker to push the valve pin/cup seal assembly and open the actual valve. Both affect velocity and operating pressure.

...Somebody knows if the "32 Degrees Spring kit" has all the spings I need???

yes, I have them installed on my Pilot ACS. Easy to install and cheap. They come as a set. 3 Valve Springs and 3 Bolt Springs. The reason there is 3 is because they are set for different pressure. 1 spring is heavy (high velocity) 1 is medium (medium velocity) and 1 light (you get the idea). You can mix and match between the valve and bolt to fine tune to the right velocity for your rig. My advice is to start with light springs on both the valve and bolt and work your way through the combinations til you find the right velocity for your setup. This will also help train you on assembly and dis-assembly of your gun, as you will have to dissasemble it abou 70% of the way to install both springs. Hope that helps.

Yes it does. To fully understand the reason behind buying the kit, I'd check out the link Phil posted. :)
