DART Kit on Etek 3?

Hey nation,

I recently saw the new DART upgrade kit from P.E. and was wondering if it would fit in the Etek 3 or 4.

Anybody know?

No. Clearly states for ego 11, ego s and csl.

I realize what it states, I'm asking if anyone has tried to modify it/try anyways.

Basically what I'm asking is is the length between the restingplace of the rammer on an etek 3 or 4 the same as on an ego 11, ego s, and csl, AND is the length of the bolt the same.

In addition, does anyone have the diameter of the lower tube, length and width of the standard valve and new valve, and a few other measurements regarding the DART valve?

Based on what they say, it won't work.

If the dimensions are the same though, you may as well go ahead and try, as far as I can remember holding them though their size does feel a little bit different.

They use the same ram and bolt, so it could only be the valve guide and valve stem that might be different. You'd have to modify both for it to work, or possibly just the valve guide if the valve stem incompatible with the etek 3 body in some way (length maybe).

This system WILL NOT work on an Etek period! The Etek uses a Rammer Housing with the Valve Guide as a part of the Rammer Housing.

NO IFS ANDS OR BUTS....It will NOT work.

Ahh, captain CAPSlock is right. It would take some serious modifying to do this.

Captain Capslock. That's cool. If I had the capslock on they would all be that way...

Sometimes you have to be firm to be heard...otherwise the question will simply be asked another way until 50 people answer the same question 50 different ways.

Sorry if your eyes have been offended by the slightly larger size of the letters in my posting.

This.

But yea, be firm about it is what counts.

In the end: It won't work

Hey,

If they don't want to listen to the greatest eclipse tech (p8ntshoota) on the planet...let em **** up their gun...he would have the last laugh anyway while he is ringing up an new rammer housing and shipping it to him.

Woah....

Don't say things like that Tonycon...I am by no means what you make me out to be. Maybe the 2nd greatest...but certainly not the greatest.

if other bolts (i.e: cure 4, techt, cure anything) fit in either the etek and ego, why the hell would the dart not fit?

It's a kit. The kit requires the use of ALL parts, and it's already even explained above that the valve does not fit the same on the Ego vs Etek. Sure the bolt would fit but that's not the purpose of the KIT.
