If you REALLY want more upgrades you can get more Shaft 4 backs and a Cure4 bolt as well as a POPS ASA.

However, your money is best spent buying more paint or upgrading the rest of your playing setup.

^^^speaks the truth, get the boost barrel back kit so u can get a .685 and .689 bore barrel backs. Cure 4 if you like, but stock bolt is fine...dont get a kush bolt, as i own one and every outing i end up blowing the soft tip off

Right now I would just say get a few cases through it and play with it. After about a year I am still stock. I fully agree get some of the Shaft 4 Barrel kits. The stock barrel is way to large.

It comes with a .693. Humid days I run a .689. Nice cool weather I have been running the .685. I just got the .681 that I hope to run once the temps get a little better so the paint is not so brittle.

I got the Pooty Cure 4 Bolt for my gun. Shot a case with 0 chops or breaks. You could get your barrel back freak bored.

Personally I upgraded the trigger because I like the scythe trigger better then the stock ( even though the stock trigger is good ) The bolt if fine unless you want to drop some money then get the pooty 4 cure bolt. However like everyone said the shaft 4 stock barrel is on the larger bore end. So either get a boost kit for the .81 and .85 bores or get the freak kit. I went with the freak kit to have more bore sizes. I live in a pretty humid area

Edit. I think upgrading boards is a waste of money. The board in the etek4 comes tourny ready and you wont need any more settings. However If you got a large wallet get the rampage board.

I have been using a CP 1 piece for all of my previous markers. I haven't had too much trouble with field paint. I am pretty sure all CP 1 pieces come at .689.

How is the stock barrel? Any issues? DO you recommend any barrel in particular?

Bolt is the only thing that can really be better on the Etek4, the stock (Cure2) on mine ate detents like mad, just got a Cure4 and seems good.

Feedneck thumb wheel is also a handy upgrade.

Cure 4 pooty modded as must...I never chop unless its raining(still not alot)
Ape Rampage board then "modify" the stock grips for the OLED.
Deadlywind fibur with stainless freak inserts(if ever a ball breaks...shoots through it after a few shots)
Exalt or KM regulator cover for feel
POPS ASA however I like the OOPS ASA
Virtue Eyes help with battery life some (also look cool).

How much improvement will we see with these upgraded bolts? and what type of improvement, air consumption, ball breaks?
