Depends on what Etek it is. Team edition, upgrades (Star frame is a +), etc... Just saying "How much do etek 1s go for" doesn't help at all. You should try posting here, might get better results

Tuning, better paint to bore match, and that's about it.

Well I just bought it today, and aired it up... Something isn't right, it is sucking air out the tank.. If I was filling my tank up and shooting at the same time the needle wouldn't move on the gauge

You have to be more descriptive. What size of tank you using? For example is it a 3000 psi tank or a 4500 psi tank? Also how many cubic inches is it? Any leaks?

A 45/45 is an easy tank to outshoot at the fill station. Make sure your marker is tuned and the dwell is at 13ms.

I know 45/45 is a small tank but whenever you shoot for maybe 15 second and you loose 1000 psi something isn't right.. Also dwell is set at 13

Have you checked the condition of the internal hose? Also, did you check that the LPR was ~2 turns in from flush? Does it have a Star Frame on it? If so, what's the condition of the QEV?

Is there a screen on the back of the gripframe or just lights?

The thing jutting out just underneath the barrel, is the screw turned in two turns from flush/

Does the hosing inside of the marker look in good condition or does it look cracked and worn?

The hosing connects to two fittings at the back, is one of them much bigger than the other? If it is and you unscrew the silver can with the barb on it, is the black thing all there and in one piece?

Dude if you don't know much about them you need to be careful with checking the QEV diaphragms if you do have the Star frame. You can click the Planet Eclipse Etek in my sig to compare my frame with yours to see if you have the Star frame. Same with checking the banjos/barbs/internal hoses When he is referring to checking if the LPR (the thing jutting out from just under your barrel) to see if it is flush. He means to make sure the center screw of the LPR housing if exactly flush with the LPR housing itself, then turning it inwards two complete turns.

I don't have the star frame, and the lpr is flush I have torn the gun apart yet.. I don't see why I would have to if it's not leaking.. If the hoses were bad it would be leaking..

Just to clarify I'm not new to the sport.. Just new to planet eclipse

I guess I'm just going to have to post the ever so helpful Etek checklist that my buddy Uziel Gal provides for people with Etek problems. Here you go imthedoritoguy hope it helps you get your Etek running like it should.

If the bolt has been disassembled recently, make sure that it has been put back together so that the pin is the right way around, so that the inlet is facing down. Unlikely though, as the velocity isn't particularly low.

Shooting very small paint through a large bore barrel will tend to reduce your velocity.

Check that the LPR is assembled correctly, with two springs, one either side of the piston.

Make sure that the spring cup inside the LPR is the right way around.

Set the LPR to the stock setting, with the tip of the adjustment screw level with the tip of the LPR cover.

Make sure that the LP hoses are unblocked and that none of the hose barbs are blocked or bent.

Replace the rammer o-rings.

Only ever oil the rammer o-rings, never grease them.

Replace the o-ring around the rammer cap.

If the marker has the Etek STAR frame, and the QEV is installed, check the QEV diaphragm is in one piece and that there aren't any excessive signs or wear, or any cuts, tears or holes.

Make sure that both banjo fittings are screwed down securely.

Replace the o-rings around the rammer housing.

Make sure that the solenoid has no signs of screw damage (beyond cosmetic scratches).

Make sure that the valve guide/rammer housing hasn't been installed upside down. Again, unlikely, as the velocity isn't that low.

Make sure that the seal on the tip of the HPR piston neck is there, and that it is clean and undamaged.

Make sure that the port on the end of the HPR adjuster screw is clean, and that it isn't scratched or dented.

Make sure that the HPR output pressure isn't set too high, as this can reduce velocity.

Set your dwell back to stock if it has been lowered.

Try a fresh quality battery.
