That being said, E1 isn't bad, but look at GoG guns like the eNVy or just snag a Smart Parts Vibe (same thing, ****tier electronics).
They're more versatile and will shoot/perform better than the E1.
That being said, they also have thousands of more options and parts available than the E1 does.
Like if you care to upgrade the gun, check out the Deadlywind Hollowpoint U3 bolt and a Clippard QEV (have teflon/plumber's tape on hand for this!).
With those, you'll garner some ridiculous efficiency which will make that 3000psi tank run like a 4500psi tank. (not really, but it will get a good 400+ shots from the same tank (using a 68/45 as comparison, but the effects are akin.)
You are 1000%correct on the parts availability on the E1. My son was dead set on having one. After several discussions I wound up buying it for him. He looked at getting upgrades for it and there are very few options. He is looking at using it as a back up and going with a diffrent marker as a primary. We've only put 3 or 4 hoppers through it, it seems to shoot decent enough.
