the only real difference is pilot is plastic and elextra is metal, also the elextra comes with a clamping feed neck and is just a little bit smaller

so my advise to you is if you have the extra money go with the electra if your on a budget go with the pilot, what your paying for is the mettal body and feed neck and thats about it

The only part of the Pilot that's plastic is the trigger frame. The rest of it is aluminum like the Electra. The feedneck is a plus on the Electra and so is the inline regulator which helps with velocity consistency. The Pilot only has a gas-thru foregrip. Also the Electra has an on/off bottomline that can shut off the airflow from the tank without having to remove the tank completely.

All of thie makes the Electra a better buy since it has 4 major features over the Pilot that would otherwise cost you over a $100 just to upgrade.

ok.....so if you could adjust the psi using the reg on the electra how can you tell where it is? i see no gauge... is there a way to tell what the psi is set to?

Based on my tests the reg. is set at around 300psi from the factory and turning the adjuster counter clockwise 1/2 a turn increased it by 50psi. I used a reg tester to read the actual output and if you have the adjuster all the way in the reg. output will start at 200psi.

Remember everytime you make any adjustments to the reg. it is neccesary to shoot the gun a few times to let the new output setting settle in.

Once you set the reg. you don't have to mess with it again. You fine tune the velocity from the back of the gun.

Besides putting a gauge adapter between the reg and vertical ASA will increase its length. It also doesn't look look good...
