help! Etek 1 star frame not fitting with qev.

I bought a star frame off eBay for my etek but with the qev installed the frame can't fit to the gun. Im unsure what I did wrong, I think its screwed in all the way because when I put air to it it doesn't leak.

Is it the right qev all the other ones I've seen are red? And mines blue.

Is the QEV lined up properly? If it's a bit crooked it could be blocking the frame. Or you may have a hose or wires in the way somewhere.

The guy on eBay got back to me and said its not the actual star frame qev. That he pulled it off of an 07 ego. I'm assuming there not the same?

That sounds about right. Probably different sizes.

Star Frame and Ego7 QEVs are the exact same, however, Ego7s can fit non-Ego7 QEVs. Have a pic of the QEV itself screwed to the body?

Morning,

I have just replied to your email with the following advice:

"Hi Matt,

Thank you for your recent email and enquiry.

Please accept my apologies for a slight delay in replying; it was a public holiday here in the UK yesterday.

Okay, the frame that you have pictured is NOT an Etek STAR frame; this is the primary reason that the QEV will not fit. I can see that you have a STAR frame board fitted in the frame though, so that would suggest to me that there are numerous mismatched parts in the marker that you currently own; the board and the QEV being two of them.

The most efficient way of getting you sorted is to have you contact Gerry or Aaron in our Rhode Island Service Department on (401) 2479061 and arrange to send your marker into them so that they can ensure that it has all of the correct parts and that you are back up and running in no time.

Kindest regards,

Nicky T"

Could I get a picture of how you got the frame rigged up with the Star board?
