View Full Version : pilot acs butt stock mod.
05-15-2006, 09:08 AM
I was wondering if there is a mod available to put a butt stock such as the kind found on mr1/mr2 on a pilot acs. i've looked all over a few different forums on this site and can't find anything on this. So if anybody has some info on this it would be much appreciated.

just get one of those things that you stick on the end of your co2 .. should work good enough .... or get something thats foam/rubbery thats adhesive on the other side ... tank shouldn't move anymore ...

I only posted the ones similiar ti the MR series 'cause that's what he'd mentioned. But that's a good unit too, more like an M4A1, AR-15, or M-16 stock.

yeah sorry about the confusion on that let me rephrase. I was just using the mr's as an example of guns that had butt stocks so you guys knew what i was talking about. im new to this stuff and the mr's are the first ive found that had them. But yeah basically any decent buttstocks that fit the pilot acs is what im lookin for.
also you said it replaced the velocity bolt plug. but the acs has a 2 piece cover that also covers the acs bolt hole. that one just looked like it covered the velocity bolt hole only. or do you just pull the velocity bolt itself out and screw in the buttstock?
i like the ones you showed me that attach to the drop forward brace. I'm just curious about clearance as im probly gonna be using a standard big sized co2 bottle for a while. does it attach underneath the drop forward, or does it sandwich between the drop forward and trigger handle.
also i saw one other style on some generic looking tac-5 (i think that was the company) recon gun. you pull the quick disconnect pin, and it slides on the back. comes with a longer disconnect pin cuz the stock one wont reach all the way through with the buttstock on. You guys seen any of this style around?

The silver piece that has the velocity adjuster on it comes out, and that goes in its place, if you look closely you can see the groove where the quick strip pin will hold it in place. Doesn't seem too sturdy, but it should get the job done.

what i meant was if you look at the back cap their talking about in the above thread. it covers both holes in the back of the gun. so your saying you just take the bolt itself out of the back cap and put the buttstock in its place?, cuz it doesnt appear to have a piece to cover the striker bolt hole.

If you click on the Doro Paintball link of the Trinity stock, then click on view larger image; you can just barely see what looks to be the upper dust cover that goes in the bolt breech.

cool, that one might work, thanx. my buddy works at a machine shop so i might be able to draft some blueprints and have one made if it dont cots me too much. im thinkin triangle style. one connecting point would be a slide over thats held in by the quick release pin. straight bar back about a foot, then angle down to connect to the drop forward bracket. then just a straight bar down at the back for a shoulder rest. i could get fancy and put curves and contours and crap in the design but it seems pointless. one thing i might do is have beaver tails built into the buttstock on the sides to mount sights too.
btw what do you guys think on sights. is it a waste of time designing it to mount scopes/red dots to? or should i just have some fins sticking out for peep sights. honestly i think all i need is the peeps to give me a general idea where the guns aiming as its almost impossible to be accurate enough for a scope to even be useflul. Kinda like how shotguns always have a tiny sight at the end of the barrel just to give you an idea where your aiming. oh well, after i get some measurements and draft up some blueprints il let you guys know how it works out. But keep an eye out for decent aftermarket buttstocks for me just in case please.

I made a mount for a red-dot. People here seem to be very polarized; it's either awesome or a waste of time= no middle ground. I'm relatively new to the sport and still get the adrenaline rush when I line up the marker with a target and having a red dot as a point of orientation helps keep that first shot where I want it. Imho you can get fairly accurate without any sights- but I enjoy tinkering with my gun and fabricating stuff. Besides, someone out there likes milsim because there's lots of markers, accessories, and web-sites dedicated to just that. That Araikon SIM 4 R.I.S. Elite is a sweet example. I'm in the process of converting my Pilot to LP and making some changes; I'll post some pics on the picture pages when I'm done if you're interested. Good luck with your customization.
