So i bought 2 pilot acs red/black fade and after playing a couple games with it at the local field the cocking pins on both my guns decide to fly off and vanish into this air. So i went out and decided to mod my bolts! I took the bolts to my local hardware store where they drilled and tapped the holes for me.

I also have two Pilot ACS's, is the cocking pin a problem with this gun? I haven't used them yet, but If the pins fly out, i'll try to find a solution b4 i use them.

the deal with the cocking pin is that it bounces off the front and rear of its track causing to pop out. you can prevent this by filing or drilling out about 1/8 inch at the front and rear of the track

Looks good but, Isin't the bolt Delrin? Or is their some aluminum you can drill into? Also, did you use lock-tight on the threads? I'd be worried the the modification would loosen and come flying out of their and hit someone.

Thank You for the warm reception :) . The bolt has an aluminum piece in there with a set screw that you drill out. I had my local hardware store drill out the tap screw for me and i looked around for the perfect bolt to fit in there. It fits nice and snug and i did lose the first one so I just added some JB weld to the threads and its been holding up fine. I did happen to scratch my brand new E'Vents lens the first time i played with it though :hoppingmad: . Well if anyone else wants more info on it or would like me to get the part number I'd be glad to help. :tgif: My field has Free entry/air on fridays with $40 cases of paint!!!:love:
