I love my etek 3. It's a fantastic marker. That said, if you're looking to make it quieter, I'd suggest selling it and buying something else, haha. Seriously, an axe or something in the same price range. The etek is just a loud marker.

the hush bolt and kush bolt (also the pooty bolts) can change your sound signature quite a bit, but they don't really make it much quieter. Adding a zick2 and the pooty cure 4 bolt will help your efficiency, as well as throwing in a better matching barrel back.

is the marker broken in? 10 or more cases through it? if so you can dwell tune the marker as well as tune ( a little bit) the lpr. adding a barrel with more porting as well as a good paint to bore match will help with efficiency and sound signature. dont expect anything mind blowing...ego's and eteks are loud markers.

Try a smaller bore barrel size and a Hush bolt. There's not much else you can do besides that.

And I have to ask, how do you enter to this part of the forum and spell "Etek" wrong?
