I believe that when the Etek3 was first released, some may have shipped with the Etek2 cases - the new case wasn't available in time, or perhaps, not in high enough numbers.

I guess it's possible that Planet could be having some supply issues with the new case, and dug out some old cases to tide them over - but to get an Etek2 case this long after the introduction of the Etek3 doesn't sound right to me.

I emailed planet and they just sent me a message saying they were out for the holidays and be back on the 3rd. It’s not that big of a deal other than the gun does not fit in the case nicely at all. They had to shove the gun to fit. Can’t imagine it is good for the gun.

I call BS on that, I bought an etek 3 a few weeks ago and it came in the correct case. I think ANS is doing something shady

I keep my gun in my gear bag in my case, I think ans is too. I bought a lt, and my friend bought the Am model and his came in the correct etek 3 case. I think it may be ans.

Nah guys, I had this problem, went through ans, and Planet told me that they are making the cases again. They said its a new case, and so it never was designated as an "etek 2 case" but as as "Etek case" meaning they can sell all future eyes in this case as well.

As for the case issues, what I did was I took I super sharp knife and cut 1 centimeter at a time until the gun went in and out without struggle. If you take your time, you can't even notice the homemade cutting.

Hope this helps out guys !

That's fine that their making the cases again but make it fit the gun I'm not paying 500bucks for a gun that doesn't even fit in its case properly.
