>> Buying an Etek 3, what to check for?

I'm buying a used Etek 3, however, I was wondering what I would need to check for before purchasing?

Anything I should know, like good PSI or anything about dry firing? - Please and thank you.

You just need to know that it works just fine and doesn't leak. The nice thing is that unlike a Star framed Etek/2 you don't have to check for the QEV diaphragm and unlike any Etek/2 you don't need to check the solenoid.
You may call it fat, I call it bounce padding.

Listen closely into the breach for leaks. If it leaks down the barrel, change the orings. If it still leaks, make sure it is not a valve of ram housing issue before you buy it.

That it holds air, reads a new battery, and cycles fully. That way you know you are buying a working marker and don't have a surprise repair bill
