View Full Version : Question about my spyder pilot

06-13-2006, 01:26 PM

im reading in further....i dont think it comes with one....am i able to buy one for it ? and if so...what is it that i buy exactly. thanks

well if u bought the pilot that was called spyder pilot then there is no acs included.if u bought the spyder pilot acs then it came in the gun.and yes u can buy one for your pilot,all u need is the acs bolt.

Or you could buy whichever is cheaper and buy a better bolt for it.

so if i bought one and it didnt say ACS...then i cant buy a bolt for it ?

06-13-2006, 04:26 PM
yup,that's exactly what you can do

06-13-2006, 04:26 PM
You can put an ACS bolt on almost every spyder... Yes you can put it on your pilot. Its only around $30-$40 too. (At least for the Delrin ACS Spyder brand one)

is it worth it ?? i have an electronic hopper

It depends on how often you play, if you chop paint alot and if you have the money to spend on it. The ACS Derlin is basicly all advantage. There really isnt a disadvantage to it except the fact that some of them dont have O-rings, causing alot of blowback into the hopper, sometimes causing "the invisible chop." At least it does that with the Fenix I have.

All you have to do when you get the ACS bolt is wear it in. You will have to put a rag in the end of the gun without the barrel in it and fire around 200 rounds. Then try running some cheap paint through it and see if any breaks. If it does, try the rag thing again. You have to wear in ACS bolts.

i took out the bolt and it looks just like an ACS bolt....

do they all look the same ?

06-13-2006, 05:07 PM
yah it looks just like the one in that link above...but its brass

06-13-2006, 05:09 PM
Looks just like an ACS bolt huh... Did you buy your gun stock? Are you sure it doesnt say Spyder Pilot ACS on it?

Check out this link, this is a ACS Delrin bolt. Delrins are kind of a plastic and light bolt. There are also metal ACS bolts, but they have a ACS spring on them.

If it is brass looking, it could be a Aluminum ACS bolt. Check your gun package and instructions and see if it says anywhere that the gun comes with a stock ACS. If not, the best thing to do is go to a local paintball store and ask them if its an ACS bolt. Dont be ashamed to ask questions there and ask to look at a Delrin ACS bolt and ask what the benifits are.

I can tell you right now, you never have to oil a Delrin bolt.

im gonna go paintballing one more time before i decide if im gonna but it.

I think i chopped some balls my first use with my new gun. But it could of been from the 3 or 4 year old balls i was using you think ? Plus i was using a regular hopper. Im gonna upgrade to an electronic one first.

I could of swore when i bought it. There was a sign by the gun that said. Anti Chop system. There are no paintball stores around here. I got mine at dunhams.

on the name of the parts. it says venturi cocking bolt

do you think dunhams has this ACS bolt i need ?

06-13-2006, 05:21 PM
Oh ok. It is just a stock aluminum bolt then. I have one in my Fenix just like it.

It is just like this:


Probably a top cocking bolt though. You dont have an ACS. You can buy one.
