05 Ego? or 07 Etek?

If this is the wrong section sorry, I have not used pbnation in 3 years.

I used to have a pm5 and sold it back in 07 and now im getting back into paintball.

a friend has 2 guns for sale. an 07 etek and an 05 ego

the etek is camo and its pretty much stock and he wants $325 for it.


The 05 ego is red and black and he wants $310 for it.


Basically i dont know much about ego's and i want to know what you guys think is the better deal for the price.

No vs threads. Look at the manuals. that tell you alot about the strengths of the markers. The 05 has a cp reg letting you know it will be near the top for consistency. find out what the 05 has and 07. Dont let the years determine your choice. An 05 speed and a mini will not perform the same even though one is newer.

Eclipse regs outperform CP regs by the way... so that 05 has been downgraded really.

You can get a Zick kit for the Etek but not the 05 Ego. Both can use any Ego bolt out there. Both use Cocker threads and standard reg threadings. The Etek's board is capped at 15.4BPS whereas the 05 Ego will go higher. Other than that, very similar.

Etek has uncapped semi.

But cp regs are definitely a downgrade from eclipse regs.

Interesting... I'll have to talk to my friend who owns an Etek then and call him an idiot because he swears it's capped at 15.4 LOL
