Etha shooting

Is everyone else having the distinct tinge feeling of the spring when you shoot your Etha? If not how can I fix this?

I actually shot one today, I own a Geo2 and from shooting this, I was really suprised with the difference with the spring. It felt very awkward, I think its not a problem, just the design and the spring. You might need to break it in with 10+ cases, if then it doesnt feel any better then its just the way the gun is. But anyway, yes I could feel the "tinge" and the vibration through it.

I can feel a slight vibration with each shot, but I don't find it distracting.

Yeah, I have same the synopsis. I did feel it but, it's not that bad. I actually really like the gun. It is pretty much my primary now. I have an NT that barely gets used anymore.

I have noticed peoples' Ethas lose that once they have been broken in a bit. They do sound unique at first too.

Shot a brand new one at the field today. Is it just me or do these things kick a lot? Maybe it needs to be broken in a bit? Compared to my Etek 3 I felt the gun kicked quite a bit.

Also, I did feel the vibration you guys were talking about, nothing really too bad.

A Teammate of mine has one that has 1 case through it. And I fired one a week ago that had 14 cases through it. Almost seemed like different guns altogether. The one that was broken in seemed a lot smoother. And I really didn't notice the spring anymore.

i personally define kick as recoil

my etha has the feeling that the bolt is slamming hard back...

but theni have only shot 3 cases through it

i feel the ting but there is no recoil in mine, not what i would call recoil but more a rise in barrel from air pressure but thats not even noticable, the gun shot smoot all day with the worst paint (walmart jt) with no breaks, or missfires, i just cant see the complaint of a little rise i still say go back and shoot a real gun (12 gauge slug) then come talk recoil please.
