Question Etek Problems

Okay, so I bought my etek used. It has probably had about 4 cases total through it. I am having major problems with the accuracy and the guns air pressure jumps like crazy. I played the other day and the balls were all over the place. I bought a new DART bolt & a J&J barrel the other day, but havent put the ups on the gun yet. Hopefully this will help the accuracy, but I was wondering if ball detents would have anything to do with accuracy.

P.S. also list any recommended upgrades for the etek, that I should put on the gun. Thanks

thanks for the help everyone.

lube the regulators, it sounds like they're in need of some tender loving care.

acuracy depends on the quality of paint you're using and how well it fits in the barrel.

Talking Detents, Eyes, and Ups

Well, I was thinking about detents. I want the Killa Magnetic detents but havent heard much about them. I was wondering if anyone has used them, and how well they perform. I was also going to but Virtue laser eyes for the gun, to help sense the ball.

For the future I was looking at a Zick kit, and a Velocity Avalanche trigger.

And when it comes to customization, I was going to get the dust silver body kit, a dust silver Hybrid sparta inline regulator, and a dust silver asa/drop forward. Let me know what you think, and please let me know of any upgrades that will help my marker's performance.
