I'd sugest the Pilot ACS as well. Good, solid marker. I'd sugest for upgrades a regulator and a new barrel, just on the gun. An HPA tank is a good idea, but a hefty investment for a newer player.

What's wrong with your old marker? It aint dead until it's dead!

my old marker just doesnt work,and i hate it.Its a JT Tac-5.when i get a new marker the upgrades will have to wait for a while cause im saving for a guitar amp.One of the reasons i might get an MR1 is that when it rains,most of the time it gets muddy and if i play woodsball after it rains,i dont want my marker shorting out from mud and gunk.

If you get the Pilot, your first two upgrades should be, a HPA tank and Dye Sticky 3 grips.

I wouldn't get a rocking trigger because some fields don't alow them.

Ummmm if anything your first two upgrades should be a new barrel and a electronic hopper if you don't have one. HPA is not a neccesity for a pilot and Stickys are like the last thing on your list when up grading a gun, they do not aid in the performance except for slight comfort.

I do agree with everyone else about the pilot although if all you play is woodsball you can't really go wrong with the MR1 except you can't really progress with that gun into a speedball course if a feild opens up around you or you and some friends decide to make a feild. That would be my only reason to buy the pilot because you never know when you will want to try something new like speedball and if you have the pilot you won't have to upgrade your gun much. And the pilot will perform very well in woodsball too.

The Pilot is a great beginner's choice.

I agree with Hopps on the HPA and electronic hopper.

I'm having a hard time believing that your tac5 just doesn't work ... i'd bet that it is something simple... my first reaction is to say fix the JT they are good markers... but since you asked

What ever you get... get something with a electronic frame ... then you can buy a mech frame for backup ...thas will end up cheaper than buying a mech then getting the electro frame. if the weight isn't an issue go with the MR you can alway take off the stock for speedball.

Barrels ... buy used ... but don't spend a lot of money ... id recommend lapco, armson(non rifled)...and j&j for manufacturers ... all make good products and don't have excessive porting one of these barrels can be had for 30.00 used easily.

Eh. I've never had ANY luck with any BL products. I believe him when he says it doesn't work. They just aren't good markers.

Yes, get the ACS and an electric hopper. I played for the first time on our local field this past weekend, and ended up in a few speedball matches - let's just say I was happy I had the electoronic trigger - not that I used the burst or auto modes since I don't have an electric hopper - but it sure was plenty fast enough for me on semi-auto. I really like my pilot, even with it being an older non-acs one.
