Default Pilot acs...?

Is this gun worth 100 dollars refurbished? I have an aggressor now, but I'm sure the pilot is better. I just want a few opinions on this. Open to suggestions. Thanks

The pilot is a better marker than an aggressor in my eyes.
You will be choping less paint, plus the aggressor is Mechanical vs Electronic pilot. The pilot Semi-Auto up to 20 bps, 3-shot burst, 6-shot bursts, and full-auto. It also has a top-cocking ACS (Anti-Chop System) bolt, a removable feedneck and comes with a drop forward. It comes with a quick release pin so it's a snap to get to the internals where it's a simple over/under blowback paintball gun. All in all the pilot is a descent Entry-level marker.
Although I bet a could find 1 for cheaper than 100 bucks.

a refurbed one may have some cosmetic damage by the way, but it isnt a bad gun but you can find used ones in good shape for quite a bit cheaper. for an extra $40 you can get a brand new one with eyes and a clamping feedneck. spend the extra $40, it would be worth it.

Yea you can find one either cheaper used or spend a little more for new i wouldnt pay a hundred used cause you never know what might happen or why it had to be refurbed. I would get spend a little more on new or spend a little less on used.

Thanks for your advice, I will most likely buy the 09 pilot now. Thanks, also I'm kinda wanting some info on a vs1. Worth 80 dollars? I'm fairly new to paintball. Played some years back, but I want something that's not to noob. Easy to use though and I won't just get killed out there? Thanks again!

vs1 is nicer than the acs, but you'd want a new feed neck and thats another $30 and it was discontinued a few years ago so upgrades and replacement parts are limited.

My advice if your looking to get back into paintball, and your limited to 100 bucks. Keep your eye out on this site or auction sites. The Electra, Vs2, and Pilot are all descent Entry-level marker.

An upgrade from the agressor to the Pilot is good, but you may be better served putting the money into a better mask. Always go mask -> hopper -> HPA from CO2 -> gun -> gun upgrades.

Not bad. It's actually pretty sweet that you can get a very decent gun for less than a case of field grade paint.
