Etek= freakin loud

Hey guys picked up an etek last week and only really have 2 complaints, one is its really loud and the other is just alittle bit too much kick and was wondering if an aftermarket bolt would correct either if not both of these problems.

can't help you with the kick but egos are loud like that regardless. with paint it'l be a bit quieter but still loud.

A new barrel will help the noise. I beleive the ti-rammer fits the Etek so look into that for kick, also maybe Bump LPR and HPR pistons will reduce kick.

kick is like the recoil of a rifle. the kickback from firing the gun.

turn your lpr down and your hpr up, then I believe you turn your dwell up a few. not 100% sure on exactly how much, but thats one way to get rid of some of the 'kick' and the noise.
