If I had to, the plastic parts, but if it's really an issue just get the AM.


Overall, this gun is absolutely phenomenal. You aren't going to find a better marker in this price range. It shoots absolute darts, and I can always rely on it. It's basically just an Ego, without all of the fancy stuff. I really have no complaints with this marker, it's fantastic. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a gun in this price range.

i love the appearance of this gun, the feel, shoots like an ego 9.. i dont care how loud it is.. i feel the only downfall is the board.. it wouldnt be so bad to figure out if the manual wasnt 72 pages long.. and if there was an easy way desribed in the manual to set the board to stok setting. that and i payed 150 for a gun that had 5 firing modes, id hope a gun for 400 plus would have atleast that

Pros: Reliable, PE service and packaging
Cons: Poppet performance, ergonomics, trigger
If you want a solid gun that won't go down, the Etek 3 would be what I would recommend from my experience. I never did once have an issue with it, and if there was, I would already have the parts to fix it. And if I wasn't able to, I would have the great CS of PE. Though the performance isn't the greatest out there, that is not the point of the marker. It's a solid, good value shooter. I had a issues only with the ergonomics, which are purely a personal thing, and the trigger being not as nice as I would hope for. However that is a choice PE made to separate the Eteks from the Egos.

I won my etek 3 from a raffle in 2009. (I basically had it before it was out.)

Through the years, markers come and go, but my etek has remained with me. It is a tank, and even though it is the LT version, it still is able to take a beating.

It is pretty loud, and kicky compared to other markers, but it definitely gets the job done.
