I just got my etek in. Out of the box impression.
the box itself, its a luch box style aluminum case! pretty sweet actually.

I aired it up, and started ripping, first thing I noticed was quite a bit of blow back coming out of the feedneck. (havn't looked into how to tune it out yet.)
also the trigger is a bit stiff for my taste. (snap switch feels a bit firm)
**edit** I took the spring out and its very nice now. may need a magnet repel mod or a lighter spring. The switch seams to do ok, and is very light now.

on the posative, its very light. (no barrel, loader or tank) weighs in at 2lb 1oz.
about the same a stock ion.
Fit and finish seems to be nice.
the sound report has a sharp pop similar to a d2. (not a fan of that at all.) but some of that could be from the blow back.

Overall I give it a 8 out of 10 for the price point. (reminds me alot of a d2 or promaster though)
I will update as I progress with it. (been a little busy lately) planning to make a trip to the field sunday though.

I also had some black out screws just laying around... (cocker parts still fit ;) )

Hm, nice overview. I've been wondering a little bit about etecks. Doesn't sound too impressive when I got my promaster for $380 and had 0 blowback or loud report

E teks are alright but cost too much for their performance. 06 borgs are 830 now. Eclipse needs to lower their prices, by at least 100.

just got back from the field. I took the trigger spring out of the frame, tuned the LPR to 1/2 turn past flush and left the rest stock.

This marker flat out rips! I loved it so much I lent out my DMC all day and havn't even played a game w/ it yet.

Very light, very fast and well ballanced.

:tup :tup from this guy.

sorry for the off thread comment but does that silencer actually work good.

I was thinking about saving up for one of these but i decided that a proto rail with do good for now.

the muffler works great! I just took an old stock cocker barrel and ported it (huge ports to allow for massive air flow), capped it and stuffed w/ cotton balls.

I was thinking about making a new one out of a freak tip. that way I could use it on multiple markers.

Hey Jaggy how does the gun sound when you're shooting paint through it? Most guns are much louder without paint. Then again, all Ego's are fairly loud to begin with. No?
