View Full Version : Ok this is a stupid question but how do you get the top cocking bolt out?

The one that you pull on to cock your gun. On a pilot ACS that is? Thanks I checked the how to video and they already had it off when they took it apart. Mine won't thread out and the screw on the back off the bolt won't budge.

Thanks any help is appreciated.

Oh nevermind I got it. Thanks though.

You need to pull the cocking knob straight up. It is not threaded. The first time some require a pair of plyers to remove. Once the cocking knob is removed the bolt should slide out the back.

Thanks. I got it now.

I have another question though. my gun shoots air out of the rear of the gun when i fire and the paint balls drop after about 20 feet of distance. They seem pretty strong but not like my Tippmann. Should air be coming out the back of the gun or is my bolt o-ring bad?

you may have the bolt in upside down.

The ACS bolt doesn't have any o-rings. I would pull out the bolt and striker and check out the o-ring on the striker. If it looks alright put some oil on it if not replace it and then put oil on it. Don't put oil on the bolt. It's delrin and could possibly swell. I don't think its possible to put the bolt in upside down and have the gun still fire at all.

Ok I the gun is all together right. I checked the o-ring on the striker and it seems fine, I changed it anyways but the power is still seriously down from my tippmann 98 and even a vloader tritton 2 from walmart for 60 clams. The pilot drops at about 20 feet. I'm sure the power is around 250fps but I'd like to get it a little higher for woodsball.

How can I boost the power. What springs do I need.

velocity adjuster maybe?

Yeah it's cranked all the way in and that is not working either. I've read the Pilot is down on power or has weak springs from the get go and just a aftermarket spring can make a huge difference. Anyone know which one to buy?

Buy a spring kit, anyone will do just dont go playing with velocity without a crono in front of you.
