View Full Version : New Pilot ACS

03-14-2008, 01:39 PM
Hey guys! I'm new to the forums and just want to say hey to everyone!

I recently got a Pilot ACS and I'm planning on adding some upgrades to it. I don't really plan on playing in tournments as much as I would be playing woodsball or speedball with friends... so not looking for anything extreme. This is what I had in mind...

First off, I definitly plan to get:

New Barrel (J&J Ceramic 14")
New Hopper (Evo III)
New Feedneck (Not sure yet)
DYE Sticky Grips

I was wondering if there is anything else I'm missing? I was thinking of maybe a Palmer Stabilizer... I plan on sticking with CO2 for awhile (sigh... I'm kinda broke) and maybe a new board (Virtue)

Thanks guys!

Definetly get a new feed neck. The cheap plastic one they give you will break and makes the hopper sit really high. If you have the money go with a barrel kit (Freak Jr., J&J Edge). I got an Evo III and it works very good and dye stickies which are also very comfortable (and protect your elctronics WAY better that the stock ones).

J&J barrels are a very good choice. Dye stickys grips are a must imo and I would go with a ccm feedneck. After that u sould be set for a while. gl man

ohh btw if ur gonna get an aftermarket board I would go with a tadao board over virtue board.

Thanks you guys... ya i was debating over the virtue or T board... what are your guy's opinions on them?

I also heard people saying to replace the bolt and springs? Is that true or just if I wanted to go LP... and is the regulator a good idea for CO2? I was thinking of getting a Palmer because it works with both HPA and CO2 (if i wanted to change over in the future)

And trigger wise... i was thinking about getting something new... my trigger feels kinda tight to me... i'd like to find something looser

get a trinity t-lock imo, you dont need to get a new regulator for hpa, if get a new reg you will also need a new front block( the pilot regis weird)

yea i thought I would have to get something for the regulator... what kind of front blocks are out there for a Pilot?
