Etek quality gun?

Hey, I was thinking of buying an Eket and was wondering if poeple with them liked them. Ill be upgrading from a 98 custom so it will be a big change ( and much needed ) I dont really want to waste my money on like an ion and outgrow it soon. Im way over a 98 custom. So if you guys can say if you like them please or if you dont ( and what you dont like ) I would love it.

Also how is it in cold weather?

You should just got with a PMR. Good price, good board settings, about half the cost of a etek and still a good gun. I sold my PMR and just picked up a Etek. Love it so far but changing the board settings took a little to get used to. You should check the Vs. thread to see what a Etek compares to.

first off, ions are GREAT if upgraded right.
i have an VERY highly upped ion that shoots almost as good as my etek. key word almost. its a great gun for the price.

but so is the etek. the etek is terrible if it is set up wrong. i remember when i got mine it sucked cuz of the guy hoo set it up. but now i put a cure bolt in it and got the settings right and its amazing for the price. if your smart with guns, go buy one, you wont regret it

I agree with macq my first gun was a Ion. I had about 400$ in ups before it was over and the gun shot fantastic. Just dont let people discourage you cause you use a Ion. Only bad part is. If you go to sell it with a ton of ups. Prepare to take a heavy loss. As far as my etek goes. Im just getting a cure bolt and barrel for now. Might get a virtue for it but imo the stock board has prety good options and settings.

**** all that, i have an ego and my friend on my team has a proto matrix and dude for about half the price, the matrix is just as good. The only difference is the open vs. closed bolt marker? Its all about what you want. On this sight there are P.M.'s for sale for like 300$.

they are both open bolt markers.

the difference is that matrixes are spool while egos are stacked tube.

IMHO there is little difference between an ion and a PMR, they even feel similar to me in shooting. if you decide to go with a pmr instead of etek i would say **** that and get a used uppped to hell ion from the bst
