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. This last statement is complete bullshit i have one and its chopped at least 20 times in only 3 wars. So dont believe this crap that there telling you!! The ACS precision spring tension recognizes obstructions before crushing balls and jamming the marker, so the action never stops. Yea thats also false.

Battery can be charged without being removed
Uses a lot of air
Feedneck is way to high
I purchased this gun about 2 weeks ago. I was looking for a gun that I could use for speedball and woodsball (I didnt really want a mil-sim gun, because by the time you dump all the upgrades into them, they cost a lot of money).
This was an attractive looking gun, and the price was great ($199.99 CDN).
The adjustable trigger is a great feature, I have mine tweaked so I can walk like there is no tomorrow.
Having a plug and charge battery is a great feature too; no taking apart the gun to change/charge it (I get about 2 days worth of paintball off of 1 charge).
The gun is very accurate right out of the box, although a longer barrel wouldnt hurt.
The grips are uncomfortable, leave wires exposed with the battery in, and seem very fragile in your hand.
The stock feedneck puts a hopper way to high in the air (my evo3 sits about 3-4 inches above the gun).
The ACS system works amazing. I put 1500 balls through it and only broke 1 (and it was probably a defective ball because I bought them for $29.99/case 200).
This is an all around great gun to buy. I would reccomend it to anyone looking for a good gun with a fair price.
Im giving this gun a 10 because it is by far the nicest gun I have played with and it lets me keep up with the big boys (cockers, angels, timmy's).

Over in all this is a very good gun the anti chop system works fantastically ive been through thousands of paint balls and none have chopped. adjusting the trigger is a great thing to do on the marker as well as for me i have my trigger really close to the tab. the barrel is decent its not that great but it works pretty good fairly accurate for me its not like it makes the paint ball move the side. the grips do suck very badly very uncomfortable when you screw them in they dont shut all the way keeps a part open.
This gun is very good for the money i would really recommend this marker to anyone that is a beginner or just anyone that wants a cheap fast good marker
Although I have only used it a couple times, the spyder pilot acs is a great marker for speed ball. The barrel that comes with the marker is sick and is really accurate! The internals are really easy to get out and lube. The flat trigger is makes it really easy to fire fast.
This marker is great and I highly recommend this marker.

I've lost count of how many Spyders I have owned. My first was in 1994 when they first came out and it was a Spyder Compact A. Over the years I have bought and sold several others. I never had anything wrong with them, I just go through alot of guns. I recently decided that I didn't need enough equipment to outfit 3 other people, so I sold off most of my gear and kept the basics. I sold my Proto Rail, which was a great gun, and bought a Spyder Pilot. I wanted something less expensive and that would work well on CO2 as well as compressed air. I liked the look of the gun, and figured it would fit the bill for my needs, which are rec and the occasional scenario game.
The design of the Pilot is that of any other Spyder, its a stacked tube design with the bolt riding on top of the hammer. I've used these for 13+ years and have never had a problem with the design. I might also point out that I take very good care of my gear, and when I was working in a paintball shop doing repairs, the only time I saw a problem with a Spyder was when the owner had never taken care of it, oiled it, or cleaned it. Failure to maintain any paintball gun will cause it to perform poorly or break.
I added a CCM low rise feed neck with a used Evolution hopper and a SP AA 14" Freak barrel. So far I have only used a 20oz CO2 tank. I broke in the ACS bolt before I shot the gun by removing it and working the action on it for a couple hundred times to loosen it up. I reinstalled it and made sure that the hammer o-ring was well oiled. The gun shot hot at first so I installed a green spring from a kit that I bought with the gun and it came down to my usual speed of 280s. The stock barrel shot pretty good, but was a larger bore compared to the smaller bore paint I was using, which was a bargain case of some unknown brown box stuff and some left over 68 Combat. Over a full case shot through the gun in the back yard and actual playing conditions and zero chops. The ACS bolt did its job on two occasions when a misshapen and deformed ball fell half way into the chamber and would not feed properly.
During play, the gun functioned flawlessly. The Evolution matched the speed that I was firing perfectly. The micro switch on this model is way more sensitive than the MR2 or the Flash that I had. If the trigger is pulled lightly it will run away for a short burst. If you pull it hard you can control the one shot better. I have to get used to that, but I like the stock trigger on it. The duel ball detents work great and are nicer than the rubber nubbins of older designs. The mode display is easy to use and read. Much nicer than the old LED lights or the LCD display.
I highly recommend this gun, or any other Spyder like it. They are well built, easy to maintain, and offer high performance at a low cost. Either the red one or the blue one look great, and are at home either on a speedball course or in the woods.
A nitrus tank, co2 is bad for your gun, clampping feed neck.
If you adjust the trigger wright, it shoots as fast as a ion, its accurate.
Dont dry fire with co2, it freezes your tubes in the air through handle.
The spyder pilot acs is truely an acs because you can walk it with a gravity hopper. I got my acs and the first thing i did was adjust the trigger. if you get the trigger on its sweet spot its unstopable. this gun is the best speed ball gun i ve gottan. i love my gun more than any gun in the world.
14' Stiffi .691
goin on co2
Get a good hopper at least egg 2
A barrel any barrel would be more accurate than stock
a good feedneck
THis gun is fast and accurate even with stock barrel doesnt chop unless you have a slow hopper like a revy It is cheap and you can up your spyder big time you can replace and up almost everything on the pilot if you wanted to all you really need to buy is a good fast hopper at least a egg 2 and a good feedneck cause stock sucks It is a great gun overall ive been beating uped ions and all kinds of cockers and tippmans and other various guns
nice cheap gun fast gun doesnt chop accurate alot of ups for it BUY IT!
Modes easily changed, trigger easily changed, lots of settings
Bolt slips, trigger contact messes up sometimes, no ramping mode(stock board)
It was the first real electric gun that i played with, the bolt slips on it, and the trigger messes up sometimes but other than that its a decent gun. It has semi, 3 shot burst, 6 shot burst, and full auto... 3 shot, 6 shot, and full auto are customizable from 6-13bps. the trigger can be adjusted easily without having to remove any pieces of the gun, the velocity is also just as easily changed.
If your semi-serious about playing paintball, get this gun...but if your looking to unload some serious paint, and upgrade you gun, lean more toward an ION or something of that kind

Tippmann 98 custom pro Response which was a good gun only it chopped alot compared to the pilot
Spyder Pilot ACS - Dye Stickys,14" Stiffi Barrel, Lapco Feedneck, Tboard W/eyes, 47 ci dxs nitro tank, Halo b hopper
Speed 20 bps
ACS bolt doesent work that well
Stock feedneck is crap
When i first got the pilot i found that the paint job was basically flawless. Also the trigger is very comfortable and is adjustable. When I first shot it it was relatively quiet and very accurate. But when i played with the first time it chopped and with the acs bolt i was suprised. Once I got a new hopper (HALO B) It almost never chopped. This is an excellent for beginners but the first upgrade you should definetly get is a new feedneck the stock one is aq peice of crap.
Overall the pilot is a well made peice of equipment and with the right upgrades it can shoot as fast an intimidator and accurate as a cocker

Spyder pilot acs
evo 3 hopper
72 ci hpa tank
Not an air hog
Well, This is my first gun and I think its awesome. While some say its just some little blowback from wal-mart, I think its a good bigginer and intermediate gun. As you can see, I dont play stock anymore, and thats helped alot!
Overall: A good gun. The milling looks sweet, stock barrel is ok, Reliable, and dosn't chop. I have put about 5000 rds thru mine and have yet to chop. And I can get about 15 bps on my own.
Reliablity: I have yet to have anything serious break down on me. In fact , I have only replaced the asa line as of yet. The shots are consistent and accurate. Then again I use the apex barrel and hpa.
Chopping: I have yet to chop in this thing. After about 5000 rds I have only had to use the acs twice.
Accuracy: The stock barrel is ok. But you will see some balls curving if you get any water in it thru the porting.
I think this is a good protuct and I would reccomend it to just about anyone.
If you are just getting into paintball, this is a good gun that will last you a long time.
all american barrel 12"
VL revolution electronic hopper
12 Oz pure energy C02 tank
-a fast hopper
-Barrel I guess
This marker is amazing and coulednt belive how well it shot. The barrel is nice and has a very good look to it and the fact that its rifled is awsome. The frame to it is very good and the trigger can be adjusted to make it closser to the gun witch makes it very easy to rock. I went from 9 bps and then i adjusted it and now im about 15 or 16 bps. The grips arnent that good because they dont stay on. The front handle is very nice but a tad uncomforable.
I say get this gun its amazing and easy to take apart>
