Brown Ego7

I have a Brown ego7 that is just trashed internally. It survived a car wreck(head on into a telephone pole, somehow we both made it out) and its pretty well frankenstiend. The frame is a tad bit bent and theres a crack in the barrel threads. It shoots great still....kinda. The parts inside either need an all pro cleaning or just straight up replacing. Does PE still have the ability to make this gun back into a bullet spitter? can I send it in and have them take care of it?

i don't think dying. i just don't think anyone wants to get your hopes up. while you may be able to find parts to replace whats messed up, it may be more worth your while to buy another one.

Doubt PE is going to be able to help with an 08 but you may want to look here.

lol nation dying that is funny. Posts per hour is still insane. No where near death.
The reason you won't get a lot of answers from people is because this question is best answered directly by Planet. Give your closest tech center a call and you'll get your answer.

Your better off buying a new ego or used, unless a geo. Cause if your saying it's all ****ed up by a car crash..... It's fubar! Your better off.

But that your choice.

I hit a tree once and had a similar outcome, except I broke my knee cap. You're very lucky.

I had a friends spyder in my truck though, and it just bent the asa inward... egos bend more, thats for sure lol.

I'd take it up with PE, but it's unlikely the parts will come at their expense. By the time you get everything you need, you'd be better off just buying a used one for around the same price. You can get used ego7s and ego8s for like $200- $300 these days, depending on the ego.

If you're looking for the parts try this link:

http://paintballshowcase.com/ego7.aspx

Other parts may be available here if you cannot find them...well...there...

http://paintballgateway.com/plecguandmap.html

Hope that helps...if you need anymore help tracking down some stragglers that neither site lists PM me, I'll help you out, or call planet eclipse and explain the situation...I've seen them help out with parts that seemed like it was going to be a lost cause finding ever again!

PE cant just give it a good cleaning and maybe some new internals. Its worked fine for years after the crash, its just im no gun tech, I put a new battery in and it doesn't go bang when I pull the trigger

Unfortunate thing is here the brown 07s are pretty rare. Only 25 were made. No way are you getting a new frame to match unless you send to someone who can reanodize and match the color really well.

You should call PE and ask them. Here's a link to their service centers.

Also if you check the stickied threads here in the Ego forum, you'll find a handy dandy thread about Warranty and gun servicing that has lots of info to help you out.
Check that out, and call your closest tech center.

I called PE last week, It was hard finding parts to help rebuild an 08 EGO...
your 07 EGO needs to be burried and look for a replacement.
Other option start looking for other 07 you can steal parts from.
My advice ...New Marker....
