My Etek 3 :X

Well, I just got my Etek 3 AM today!
Got it used, from a friend, for only $280!
I've shot a Mini, Axe, and Etha, but I chose this Etek!
Here's some pictures of my baby, I just cleaned her up :X

Spoiler: (Highlight this box to see the hidden message.)

Anyways, now that you've seen my pro-photography...
What do you guys recommend me to upgrade?
It's got a cure 2 bolt in it.
stock everything else :X

If anything I'd get a cure 4... prolly bout it. Mine came with zick2 and Ape oled... I got an amazing deal though. I doubt the zick- zick2 is much difference. Maybe a barrel kit to better match paint. The shaft 4 sets are available if you want to stay PE, or grab a freak kit or dw cf barrel with freak inserts.

If anything, put more paint through it. The guns stock work wonders and get better as you shoot more through it. If you really HAVE to upgrade or have money burning a hole in your pocket, get a new barrel or a barrel kit to match paint. If the Cure 2 bolt doesn't break paint keep it stock, you don't really need an upgrade.

I've had both through my Etek3, and the Kush is quieter, and still smoother than the Hush!

The only problem that I have with this gun is that it is loud.

I'm running it with a steelie right now, so it's not so efficient with my tank

To get it quieter and smoother, break in the marker and then you can tune dwell (read the manual to learn what it is) and adjust the lpr. I have my Etek at 11.5 on the dwell and the lpr turned in two and a half turns from flush and it is VERY smooth. Good luck!

This is not a BST thread. If you want to trade your gun try posting in the BST forums.

I loved my Etek.

Maybe the barrel if your having problems. Or a hush bolt. I hear the t-tech hush bolts are nice on the PE guns.

I had an original Etek and bought a cure 4 but it wasn't compatible I ended up selling the Etek and buying an 08 ego and just using the cure on that. I haven't had any chopping or air problems, noise isn't an issue. Not yet!
Love my ego. Just like the Etek on steroids.

I have a ETek 3 in that same color scheme. I bought as a LT and then put on the AM upgrade kit. I also put in the cure 4 bolt and now it shoots even better than it did stock. I absolutely love this marker and recommend to everybody who wants a mid level gun.

Dude I don't wish this on anyone, but you have been banned with your previous account (entouragepaintballer) and now your using this second account (entourage4life15) containing identical BST criteria as the first account that was banned. I truly hope PBN has a good talk with you.

Now attempting the same violation with a 3rd account. Mods are you seeing this? Dude do yourself a favor and take your trades to the BSTs.

Send him a pm so he realizes the difference between threads and b/s/t. Most noobs think, I want an Etek, so I need to post in the Etek threads.

I won't make contact with people who have banned accounts/use multiple accounts and openly violate PBN rules repeatedly. Don't know what the guy is capable of. I just figured if he can post in the forum and read the threads then he can read my warnings. Just trying to help him out a bit before the Mods come down on him.
