05-03-2006, 01:37 PM
i have an older spyder electra, the one that looks exactally like the DX, and its side cocking, the problem is, is that when ever i go to play it usually chops, but i cant find any ACS bolts that look side cocking

this bolt says it fits the electra and the dx which are both side cocking, but the pic shows it top cocking. is there any ACS bolt that fits the older electra, idc if its not a kingman one i just want a ACS bolt

can u give me a link to buy a rear cocking or top cocking conversion kit?

i donot know where to get a rear cocking conversion kit, but i know that you can do the top cocking conversion your self. if you trust yourself with it then you could do it, but if if not then go to a local machine shop and have them do it. all you would need to do is dremel out the area in the top of the marker for the bolt knob to come out of. i know there is a way to make it rear cocking, i think you remove the rear cover the is combined with the velocity adjuster cover thingy. then put in the bolt get a new cover. but somebody please correct me because im not sure if im correct on this. hope this helps

well besides drilling holes in my my gun (dont realy have the tools or confidence) and i dont realy have a offical paintball shop near me,

can u give me a link where i can just get a new body w/ or w/o paint

... rather than getting a new body i'd probably rather get a used one ... go to the BST section on these forums.. you can get them here for pretty cheap ..

I'd say get a rear-cocking bolt and remove the top half of the rear plug and get a beavertail.
get a 'vision' cocking bolt, remove the sight and cut away the top tube so you can grasp the back of the bolt. You can do the body mod with a dremel cutting disc or even a hack-saw if necessary. The mod's not that diffcult to do, just time consuming. Take a perm marker and draw your 'cuts' on the body...then take your time making the cuts.

I'm pretty sure there are peeps on this forum that can do the mod for you **cough bomberpilot07 cough** for a fee.

WAIT. I think that the universal ACS bolt has a pin that can be taken out of the top and put in the hole on the side, you can see it in the picture, you wont need to cut anything, and it will work perfectly. If I'm wrong I appologize, but I'm pretty sure that that should work.

Yeah, just to re-affirm for all the people with side cocking guns, in search of an ACS Bolt, the universal works, just got one today infact, and it does just as I predicted.
