Arrow Can you switch frames on Etek 4?

Are you able to switch frames on the etek 4? Like can you put an SL94 frame on it? Or what frame besides another etek 4 frame would fit. If there isn't one oh well I was just curious.

You can fit an Etek3 frame on it, which is still an Etek4 frame, but nothing else.

^What he said^ You would probably have to do extensive milling and modifications on both the frame and the body if you would want to achieve putting an Ego frame on an Etek 3/4. Sorry for the bad news.

It's all good, just trying to find different way to put an OLED board on my Etek 4 LT.

Besides the APE, you would have to either get the AM frame with the Emortal or something equivalent already installed. Also you can get the AM frame and install one of the boards yourself. There was someone on here attempting to mill the LT frame for an Emortal board but I don't think that went anywhere.

I know, but just clearing it up for anyone else since new people tend to get pretty confused on PBN.

Thanks for the feedback on this. Do you think I could just fit an OLED screen right where the LEDs are? If so any recommendations on which board?

Those aftermarket OLED boards should provide grips for the location of the screen.

True, but I feel like putting the OLED board where the LEDs are at right now would be much more simple.

Only the Emortal board with the AM frame puts the screen where the LEDs are.

That's kinda the only reason to buy an AM frame, PE has to have some special advantage for it, right?

You can modify the LT to accept the Emortal board. I am talking to a guy who said he achieved it, and he said it looks great. Waiting on confirmation pics. He said he has used it without any structural problems. But Jack Woods himself disapproved of milling the LT frame.

Yea I was looking on Hustle Paintball to buy an Emortal board and they were saying it's not meant to be used on an LT unless you buy the metal upgrades. If you get pics can you send them my way?

Haha not really. Only way you'd do that to an LT frame is cut the shape out yourself, that's pretty time consuming and complicated. There's a reason why Eclipse made it for the AM model only. Perks to buying an all metal marker and for that $$$.
