Couple questions on Etek3 AM

Hi guys. Sorry if this has been asked before, I can't find any information.

I just got an Etek3 (used obviously) and am very new to electronic markers (or markers in general!) My first question is how do I get the marker to "ramp." I played with it for the first time yesterday, and after having some problems I made it through most of the day problem free. It was semi automatic the whole day, which is fun but I'd just like to know how to get it to ramp.

My second question is cleaning it and lubing it up for the first time last night, a spring from the bolt popped out and I have no idea where it came from! It still fired, but I assume it has to be somewhat important. Even looking in the parts part in the book I couldn't find any information on it. Where does this little bugger go?

Thanks guys!

Check out this video by Hustle Paintball (I know it's about Etek 4 but apart some details it's the same):

It basicly explaines everything you need to know maintaining your Etek.

Also PE's manuals are the best in the industry, you will find everything you need there. If you don't have one here is an online version:

That spring goes into the bolt. Again check out this video
Video shows how to assamble an EGO/ETEK bolt

If you buy a used gun.........first thing you need to do is download the manual and read it over.
