Wasn't the original factory dwell 8ms - which was later changed to 9ms? I didn't think it was ever as low as 7ms.

OK well my etek3 was purchased in January of 2011, just checked the stamp on the barrel and it's 1009

I took my barrels into work and had a machinist check the bore and it is indeed .689 (17.5 mm for us civilized folk who use the metric system )

is it safe to assume since mine is also stamped 1009, it is also .689?

As Nicky has confirmed that that is a batch number, then yes, I would have to presume that all barrels within a batch were made to the same specification.

Ok so tonight I sent Nicky T (Nick) the following email:



Hey Nick,

Can you please visit my thread on the topic of bore size on PBNation ?

http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.php?t=3566494

It seems that there is some confusion as to the bore size of .689 as a user posted the following:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

i am not trying to create a pissing match here, but this is the text copied from the planet eclipse website...tech specs for the etek 3, page 6

"2-Piece Barrel 14” 2-piece honed barrel with the distinct Eclipse
Reverse Threading using the same interface as the Shaft2, Shaft3 and SL
barrels, making the ETEK3 barrel upgradeable with the Shaft3 Upgrade
pack. 0.693” rear bore is standard"

and this from page 11 "am specifications"

ASA MOUNT T-Slot mounted adjustable rail with OOPS
TRIGGER PIVOT POM Self lubricating bearing surface
BARREL 2-Piece micro honed Etek3 14” 0.693” bore
FEED TUBE Lever operated Clamping Feed
TRIGGER METHODS Micro-switch
TRIGGER MECHANISM Magnetic return

http://files.planeteclipseb2b.com/et...K3-SPEC-EN.pdf

on a personal note, i don't really care, i have a shaft3 kit...but (in a ricky ricardo accent) sombody got sum splainin to do! lol.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I did read the last email you sent to me, and I posted on it in the forum, however this user has good proof that it was at one time .693. If you could please take a minute to make a post in the thread explaining this situation, we'd all really appreciate it. If you don't have time to post in the thread, I can just cut and paste your reply to me.

Thanks again for your speedy replies.



Hopefully we will get an answer here, if not, I can just paste in his reply. I'll put it up as soon as I can.

No idea who Ricky Ricardo is but i can shed a little light on this subject for you all......

The ONLY place that i can find where 0.693 is specifically mentioned is on that Tech Spec in the Etek3 mini-site; everywhere else that the bore size is mentioned, including the Etek3 Manual itself, we do not specifiy a bore size.

Having spoken with Jack this morning he has confirmed that the bore size is 0.693. Sorry for adding to the confusion with my answer above - testament to the fact that you have to ask the right person to get the right answer!

So this guy uses a mic on his barrel and it is .689, but the manufacturer is saying they made the barrels .693? I'm still confused...

You may want to send it back to PE for a exchange. It should be .693

The shaft 3 kit comes with a .685 and .689 barrel backs.

Watch this PE video because even it says .693
