View Full Version : Pilot scenario gun
08-26-2007, 09:57 AM
I have really been getting into scenario play now and not so much speedsball. I want to make my pilot acs into a more woodsball type marker but I want to do this without getting a new gun unless thats what it comes down to. So my question is what upgrades are out there to make my pilot more like a woodsball marker?

you could get it anno'd if you want. putting a stock on will be difficult. i tried my MR-1 stock, but the bolt comes back all the way. go remote like weitjosh said. it will moke your overall setup lighter and shorter. thats all that i can think of right now. i will psot abain if i think of some more

Start with a JCS folding stock followed by a 14 in barrel.
Later on you can add a red-dot sight.
Don't forget the camouflage tape.

I have a remote already and ive been looking for barrels that have a handguard on it to make it look more like a m16 and im lookin at stocks currently
any other ideas would be appreciated
would either of these work on my pilot?

I put a JCS on mine and it is the highest quality stock I've seen. They have other parts as well.
The barrel you posted will work, but I'm not sure about the stock. It probably will but a lot of stocks don't retain the velocity adjustment well.

like the setup sandman. are those Dye Stickys you have on there?

do the JCS stocks still have the velocity adjustment?
also if i were to put a scope on the gun. how would i do that and wouldn't the hopper be in the way of it, or could i get a bent elbow for it?

Yes, they are Dye Sticky 3 grips, and yes the JCS has a velocity adjustment. Mine has a sweet allen head screw recessed in the block that goes into the body of the marker. Another nice feature of the JCS is it's "wobble free". Have you ever seen someone else's gun with a loose wobbly car-stock? If you look closely at my pic you'll see there is a knurled ring next to where it attaches to the gun. The block that goes inside the marker looks just like the stock back plate. (you still use the quick strip pin) That knurled ring is a threaded nut that you tighten against the frame and it locks the stock tight to the gun. Mine came with a few allen wrenches and replacement angle blocks. (but I doubt I'll ever need them) Lastly, the folding mechanism is a high quality brass pushbutton type that can also be tightened for no play in it. All in all the quality of construction and design is top shelf.

How could I get a scope on the gun?

I had made a mount from aluminum L bracket material. I cut out a slot so it slid in place over the feed neck and drilled 2 holes where the feedneck bolts go. Then I bolted on a picatinny/weaver rail on the side. It was ok but there is no good way to bolt scopes on a top feed marker. That's why I just went ahead and bought an A5 and modd'ed it mil-sim.
You can only go so far in making a scenario gun out of a speedball marker.
