The revolutionary Anti-Chop System (ACS) is the world's first true anti-chop bolt. Simple and affordable, the ACS bolt delivers the same results as expensive markers with eyes. The ACS precision spring tension recognizes obstructions before crushing balls and jamming the marker, so the action never stops.

Spyder RS, Spyder Imagine '04, various pirahnas, tippman 98, some others.
Spyder RS marker, eVLution 2 loader, Empire Revolver barrel kit, Smart Parts 20oz anti siphon valve co2 tank, coil remote line.
force feed hopper, around 13 bps. maybe a barrel.
Value! Cheap, but man it performs with costlier markers.
Very co2 hungry, Not very durable.
This was my main marker for just over two years, (went through two of them), and i still have one in my bag even though ive upgraded. the biggest thing with this gun is value. for not very much money you get a performance thats pretty much on par with much more expensive markers. like the ACS, does the same job as an infared eye or a low force bolt as far as preventing chops. and it shoots pretty quick, around 16 bps. can adjust the rate of fire, mode of fire, and adjust the trigger sensitivity. its easy to upgrade with hoppers, barrels, and faster triggers, and is very easy to clean and maintain. probably one of the best paintball buys ive made. although, its not perfect. the pin that is on the cocker/charging handle tends to fall out, all the time. both my guns did this and my brothers did too. the trigger for the most part is nice, although i had one melt a battery. i noticed it tends to eat through gas fairly quickly.
Not the best, but the best bargain. my backup gun now.

Electric Hopper that feeds at LEAST 12 BPS

Got this gun in the mail recently and i am impressed. I love the ACS. It does exactly wat it says. ANTI CHOP. Get a new barrel and hopper. THATS ALL U NEED. Im looking into a nitrous upgrade so i can run this baby on compressed air. GREAT GUN for under 200 bucks. BUY IT!
Spyder pilot acs
lapco clamping feed neck
48/3k pure energy tank
extreme rage overdrive hopper
Barrel, grips, hopper faster than an overdrive!!
I shot 3 hoppers as fast as i could and i didn't chop
I got this gun for christmas and it rocks. The only bad thing about my setup is the hopper, i outshoot it every time( but i still don't chop). I love the trigger because of that little curve at the end( my fingers won't slip off now). I would reccomend it to medium experienced players but with some upgrades it could hang ith some of the big boys.
Red Spyder Pilot ACS '05
Two Piece 14" Dye/Proto Barrel
I picked this gun up about 6 months ago to replace my Icon X because I wanted to get a little more serious into the game. I have to say for looks I have always really liked the dusted spray look on the marker.
Once I got it on the field, it preformed pretty well and far better than my expectations. I find the sensi-touch trigger to be very comfortable. However, I nearly had a heart attack when I fired the first time as I had not anticipated it being so loud. If you don't mind noise then its not something to worry about. I've grown used to mine now. Other things I want to mention is the huge kick back you get from this gun (you better be prepared to adjust your aim accordingly), the feedneck and the barrel. The feedneck and barrels are simply enough fixes though, so drop a bit of cash onto the marker and you have got an excellent low level tourny weapon in your hands.
Overall I was very pleased with my purchase. I am moving on to higher guns now, but for entry level and rookie players, it is a very sturdy gun to introduce you to electronic markers.
P.S. - This is my first review so if possible try not to rip me apart...thanks.
Jams, breaks paint, un-cocks itself at high rate of fire, cocking knob falls out.
I purchased the pilot because i needed a paintball gun ASAP and the only store open at 1am was walmart. Stock this marker sucks. the feedneck and elbow make the hopper sit too high and the stock barrel provides no accuracy what-so-ever. Where I play i cannot use the full auto feature or even the burst feature but when i do use those features even with my EVO III hopper the gun uncocks itself after 5-10 rounds.
On top of it uncocking itself when fired fast the cocking knob falls out outta nowhere. Not just on mine but my lil brother got the same marker as me and his fell out a week after mine did.
Paint often breaks in my barrel. I think it is the marker (i use midnight and bronze paint) but both get chopped or break in barrel.
After installing feedneck and CP barrel it performed much better than stock and now that I am getting an invert mini i will keep the pilot as my back up.
forgot to mention that after about 5 or 6 uses the bolts start to loosen up due to the powerful kick that the gun has....my brothers (not mine thankfully) fell apart on him on the field and he lost a screw that was essential...
also the hose leaked so i had to apply teflon tape to the threading of each end...that stopped the leakage...
Great marker for beginners or back up for a rec paintballer.
7 out of 10

Very good price for the quality, never breaks balls, pretty quiet, lite
lacks accuracy with stock barrel. stock feed neck is WAY too high profile
after playing paintball with my friends a few times i wanted to get into it more and get my own marker. i was pretty lost when it came to deciding upon a marker to get and i had the ACS pilot recommended to me by a friend of mine. i bought it and i was not disappointed. it was a good buy for the money. with some minimal upgrades ( even though i have many most are just my personal preference) you stand a good fighting chance against other players with higher end markers at the field in no time. the only thing that i had a bit of a problem with was the stock barrels performance with different brands of paint so i bought the PMI barrel which settled that one.
I would defiantly recommend this product for anyone who wanted to get into paint-balling with a decent gun without having to sell your organs to afford it.
ELECTRIC HOPPER <-(key to full auto experience)
New Regulator (for cleaner gas efficiency and fire rate)
14/16 Inch Barrel
^(stock barrels are never good enough, longer/quieter barrel should prove more useful in efficiency)^
ACS Anti-Chopping-System (never a single ball break)
Fire-Rate (High and accurate)
12" Barrel is 2 short
Regulator (get new one)
Needs Electric Hopper for full performance
This is one of these best guns I have used. The ACS is a key factor to what makes this gun great. Being able to use full auto at 20 bps without one ball breaking is revolutionary.perfect beginner/veteran gun. Its high rate of fire and accuracy make this gun a top seller and an intimadaing gun to have on the feild.RECOMMENDED
Spyder Pilot ACS
Evo. 3 Hopper
Pure Engergy Tank
Dye 3 Sticky Grips
Anti Chop Bolt
User Friendly electronic board
Modes (Semi,Full Auto,Burst 3 6)
This Gun is agreat for beginers and intermidiate. It works great. I really like the anti chop bolt. It needs an electronic hopper. I is great for senereo and speedball. They are great for the price. Very easy to use thats what i really like about it and go get one they are great. Srry about the short review its my first time =D
It is great for starters and intermidiate. Awsemoe easy to use gun!
I have the Pilot with a Halo automatic sound activated hopper... A smart parts progressive barrel/ Whisper Barrel...
I would again go with smart parts progressive barrel/ Whisper Barrel... The stock 12 in. barrel is not very accurate with the upgraded barrel it becomes almost a totally different gun... Also I would recommend just using regualr 9v batteries. The rechargeable one they gave you doesnt last to long...
The electronic trigger is a nice touch. You can adjust the trigger as well
The stock barrel, the 9v batt. thats about it
Since I have had this gun I have gotten three of my team mates to switch their marker. They were shooting the 98 customs and my co captin was shoot the 03 cocker and switched. The gun is very reliable. I will only shoot spiders there great quality and great price. The electronic trigger is very fast very light and with the upgraded barrel very accurate.. I play alot of speed ball and the gun is great!!!!
I would tell everyone who spends less than 300 dollars for there marker to go with this, agian I cant stress it enough it is such a good gun with a few lil upgrades you have a gun in my opinion that blows the ion away. Go buy this gun thats all i can really say...
