Etek 1

ok so i have a friend with an etek one and he complains that its to loud, it shoots like a cannon. i dont know exactly what bolt is in it if its stock, and there was a cp barrel on it but i think he changed that already. question here is any suggestions on how to make it a bit quieter?

Generally that is the nature of the beast with those markers. They are extremely reliable but will be a bit kicky and loud. Throw a quieter barrel on like a furious or lurker but even that won't do a lot of difference.

Yeah that's what I've been trying to tell him but he still wants to try doing something. I think part of the issue is he's trying to compare his etek to my 3.5 geo lol.

The Etek is going to be a different sound signature than the Geo for sure.
Dwell tuning can help, barrel will definitely help. The 2 PC eclipse barrels are more quiet than the 1 pc. (IMO). You can also use a freak with lots of ports). Really any barrel with a lot of porting will help.

Alright that's pretty much what I thought. And said. But thought I'd get second opinions. Thanks again

Hmmm I wouldn't know but if it did, probably wouldn't be able to find one now.

You can still find the hush bolt, but honestly you're wasting money. The ETEK 1 is just loud period.

Don't waste money on the hush bolt I don't think they made enough of a difference.
