I'm getting a Pilot soon (today or tomorrow) and i need to know if there are any upgrades that i should get. I've played with it once and found that it bounces a lot. I don't know if there's a way to fix that, other than adjusting the trigger. Thanks in advance for the advice!

you should look into a good hopper if you dont already have one. When i got my pilot it bounced like crazey! but after a month of playing every weekend it stoped?

Works for me. lol

i'm gonna get a revy. i already have a barrel that will fit a pilot, but i dont know if it will look good or not. i have 2 choices right now (for the barrel) the stock pilot, and the stock MR-1. what kind of new barrel should i get? i was thinking of like a NDZ feedneck or something like that.

i use a CCM Spyder Heli Clamp No Rise Feed Neck, with Holes. Works great...cept you need some allen wrenches but hey it isnt that expensive for those.

actionvillage.com is were you can get the feedneck and yes the pilot runs off both air and co2.a good barrel is a cp or j&j.14" is a good size.feedneck should run somewher in the $30ish range

Yea I would first get a fast enough hopper then a better barrel and feedneck. If you can get nitro that would be great. nitro is probally one of the best upgrades you will do to the pilot.

Yeah more cosistent, some high end ones have regs (CP, Smart Parts)

"Healthier" for the Marker and doesnt get affected by the temp. Also is cheaper to fill and some places (if you register their as a team or member, you get free air)

Another good upgrade is the Scenario Dreams Ver C t-board, www.scenariodreams.com, an upgrade that is down the list a ways but well worth the money.
