New Etek owner

Picked up a cammo Etek1 that looked amazing. Seller told me it had a barrel leak so no big deal.
Took it apart to clean, replace all rings, and lube. I was amazed at how much sand was inside the rammer and this still would shoot! Don't think this rammer or frame has ever been off for any kind of maintenance.

Found the HPR only has 15 shims. I remember some of these shipped this way?
HPR looks to never been serviced. Rings dry and plenty of sand in it. Inner anodizing looks ok, but the piston might need replacing.
Where could I pick up a new HPR reg seat? This one is either missing or I lost it. Would a dye hyper reg seat work? I've used macro line cut straight and fit to size in the past. Have a spare hyper 2 that needs a new reg seat, so might pick up a 2pack reg seats for it and try.

Is it common for the cup seal to separate from it's pin? This one looks to be used this way for quite a while.

I have yet to put a ball through it, but this is build like a tank if they can handle this abuse.

Shopping list:
Detents
hpr shim
cup seal
hyper2 reg seats

A hyper reg seat will NOT work.

If you're missing an HPR shim then good luck. You might as well buy a new regulator if you need it.

That's all I can add.

Cup seal with all new rings and fresh lube seemed to do the trick.

Found the reg shim, but you are right the hyper 2 reg seat is too large. Will have to bite the bullet and pick up a piston assembly.

Any idea how long those detents are good for? I'm sure the kids will dryfire this alot so maybe I'll take them out until spring.

Planet Eclipse STRONGLY recommends not dry firing the marker.

If your looking for detents check out kila products magnetic detents. I have a set on my Etek3 and I like them a lot more than finger detents. Match that with a soft face bolt Ala cure4 or an ego/etek pooty made bolt like I have and you get a beautifully soft shot you should never break a single ball with.

I have killa detents in my protege and vibe. They work pretty well and I like not replacing things.
Disassembled the noid to check for sand. First place in this etek that didn't have sand! Took the detents out and dryfired a tank dry to make sure everything is sealed up tight. Still need to set the regs, just waiting for the new HPR piston to arrive.
