Agreed, looks like that mixed with a Geo bolt. I wonder if Geo bolts/bolt parts might be used in it like with the Eteks? I wonder what upgrades for it will be offered...

Well, let's be real here.

PE is using the 'cork in a bottle' system for the bolt/firing system. Same as an Automag. They even look the same:

Etha:


Automag valve:


The bolt return system is 100% the same. The firing system (including the low speed/high speed stroke) is roughly the same.

Etha:





The only difference is that PE is doing it electronically versus AGD doing it mechanically.

No disrespect intended, and I do understand your comparison with the Automag bolt kit - it was the first comparison I made when I saw the Etha internals as well - but it does make me smile when you say that bolt return system is 100% the same..... How different can a big, chunky spring be!?

Although having said that, the spring isn't square section.

pretty stoaked for this release. Eclipse has always lacked that "cheaper" entry gun that it's competitors jumped on. The etek's were there but still not sporting that low of a price. Starting at 400? I'm excited.
