Are these Ego after market parts compatible with Etek 3?

Hello

I was wondering if the following parts off 2005 EGO with work with Etek 3 LT?

Cure 3 bolt

Azodian Carbon Fiber barrel

CP Regulator

Zick Kit (I know etek 3 comes with one, but still want to know if its same one that fits Ego 05)


Thanks

The Cure3, CP reg and barrel kit will work. The Zick kit will not. I wouldn't bother with the CP swap from the stock reg on the Etek3, the stock reg is a better bet.

So picked up an Etek 3 LT today. And tried to install the cure 3 on Etek 3, while it seems to fit, the bolt is a bit longer sticking out of the receiver by about 3/16" thats not good right?

The barrel did fit though.

The bolt sticking out doesn't matter. Also, a word of advice, any Planet Eclipse Ego/Etek bolt will fit on ANY Ego/Etek, meaning I could get a Cure 4 and install it on an Ego 5/6/SL66/7/SL74/8/SL8R/9/SL94/10/SLS/11/CSL/Etek1/Etek2/Etek3/Etek4. Likewise, you could grab a stock Ego5 bolt and install the bolt on a Ego 5/6/SL66/7/SL74/8/SL8R/9/SL94/10/SLS/11/CSL/Etek1/Etek2/Etek3/Etek4 without an issue, although I wouldn't see a point in it, it's quite doable.

As stated by Driver, stick with the stock reg if you haven't already made the solid decision.

Cool im not going to me with HPR. I just swapped the stock cure bolt for Cure 3 on Etek 3. I did have to enlarge the hole for the pin. For some reason Eteks pin was a bit thicker and it would barely go in there, so after a little bit of enlarging with allen key, now its tight but movable.

Also is Etek 3 a better marker than Ego 05 with zick kit, starr frame/trigger. CP reg and tadau board?

The Etek 3 can take a Zick kit but it has to be the Zick 2 made for the Egos.

In my opinion, yes, it's better than an Ego5 with those ups.
