Hey guys I bought a Pilot ACS and I had the cocking pin problem, does anyone know if that carries over to the aftermarket ACS Bolts that the other places sell? and do they even come with a cocking pin?

it depends if it is designed for top cocking spyders. i dont like acs, if i were you id just get a different bolt.

my experience is that is just doesnt work and it screws up a lot.
ACS works fine with some "breaking" in. The cocking pin issue however is something else entirely. If you loose your cocking on a new marker or aftermarket bolt, contact kingman or whoever you bought the bolt from and they will send you a new one. To resolve the cocking pin issue there is only one sure fire way, rear-cocking bolt, either mod yours or buy an aftermarket one. Now as far as the cocking pin issue following over to the aftermarket bolt, that depends, if you notice any wear (contact) in the channel on the top of your frame then it very well may carry over, because the problem is clearances on your frame and not the stock bolt or pin. This doesn't answer your question directly but hopefully it will help you before you decide to buy an aftermarket bolt just to have the same problem.

It works great, but NOT IN COLD WEATHER. Luckily springs coming around, so you it should be fine. If you experience the cocking pin problem, best way to stop it is to extent the slot in which the pin moves back and forth in, you need only extend it further backwards. This prevents it from shooting back too forcefully and smacking into the back of the slot which is what shoots the pins out.
