LT and AM?

I was researching the new Etek3 and looking at some new pictures and on ANSgear I came a across that there is a Etek3 LT($450) and a Etek3 AM($600). Care to explain the difference?

Yep, AT is all metal and the LT has a composite frame, eye covers and feedneck.

I have a feeling that these are going to be HUGELY popular.

They won't be that low in price, but I'd spend a little more for an 09 ego

The LT is meant to be the "lowend" etek.
The AM is supposed to be the "Midend" etek. I'm pretty sure it isn't meant to mean "all metal".

AM is all metal though, and the LT has the composite frame, eye covers, and feedneck.

My guess is that the AM will have more than just metal parts. Maybe a cure3, or a zick2, bump pistons. Who knows. I know the ego10 comes stock with the zick2 and cure3. They might make a AM kit(again a reasonable guess), to upgrade your composite parts with the metal parts found on the AM. They might not, we'll have to see when knowledge is released to the public.

As Bumppaintball went out of business almost a year ago, I wouldn't expect the Etek3 to come with Bump pistons. For that matter, I would be surprised for Planet to use any aftermarket parts on their markers anyway.

Thumbs up Etek 3

Ok, the etek 3 is going to come out with zick2 but it only has a cure 1. Just think, for maybe another hundred dollars you spend from the LT up to the AM is the deciding cost if your gun is going to easily break. Its up to all of you but the AM just seems like more of an investment. If you slide into a dorrito or maybe dive over into a snake, you slide wrong, hit your gun on the ground and there goes you Reg.

The etek 3 is using the new ego 10 technology. I dont know much, but It is keeping the macroline. I dont know about the new USB upgradeable boards, i think they will just be another upgrade.

This gun is going to be soooo nice ETEK 3

I think that it is safe to assume that the LT - the version with some composite parts - will be lighter than the all metal AM model.

Somebody from PE (I don't remember who) said the AM would be the only one of the two that will accept a lcd board upgrade.

Are you SURE the AM comes with a Zick2???? I have heard that it comes stock with Zick1 in both models.... this is the 1st i have heard of the Z2 coming in the etek3

Its a zick kit not a zick2 and its a cure1 but really the difference IMO Between the Cures atleast are so slim it wont matter much probably the same on the zick. The "AM" will be a metal frame and have a LCD The "LT" will not have a LCD and the frame composite but they are both ego frames supposedly besides that its the same gun "supposedly" Anways its a ego 7 pretty much that looks better IMO If your looking to play some Serious paintball not a bad marker for a beginning player
