Etha 2 to Emek?

Can you buy an Emek trigger frame to convert an Etha 2? I would love to have the option of using either electric or mechanical.

Haven't heard of such a thing. Seems like it'd just be easier and fairly cheap to just buy an emek as a backup.

You're forgetting about how that trigger might actuate the marker to fire.

Isnt the upper portion of both guns the same? Cant you do this same thing with gtek to gmek? I mean the board and everything is in the frame on the etha2 so I would think the emek frame/trigger/valve assembly would bolt right on and work.

Yes, it does work.

It has been confirmed by Jack Wood the Etha 2 and EMEK upper and lower are interchangeable with each other and vice versa.

You have to change out the whole lower grip frames though and all of the parts inside, also the light pipes for the eyes if you’re going from EMEK to Etha 2.

If they sold the emek lower with all the parts I would be interested if the price was right. Its just 2 bolts and a quick swap if you have the complete lower.

Yeah, I’d be interested in the Etha 2 lower too.

I’d imagine many people would be interested in being able to swap back and forth without having to buy a whole new marker...

You can buy all the parts (I think) but I priced it out and I might as well buy a new Etha 2. Also, the only place that carries some stuff is in Australia.

When I am playing rec ball I would use the emek lower mostly. Something around $75 would prob be fair IMO compared to the complete Emek price.

Probably more like $100 & $200 respectively.

Do it Jack Wood!

Please?

Lol.

Well, you could just switch out the regulator and POPS ASA which would make it a lot cheaper...

Somehow I misread your post into suggesting could the conversion be done with just swapping triggers, my bad.

Looking at paintball.de, maybe some day...

I almost wish they made an electric gun with a single trigger similar to a mechanical feel. Im not into the super light triggers that feel like your pressing a video game button but I do like having the eyes in the breech.

I thought about just buying the Etha 2 board, light pipes, Solenoid Pilot, 9v bottom plug, etc. and seeing if I could make my PAL EMEK into an Etha 2 sleeper lol.

I know this is an old thread but I am considering trying this. If I wanted to swap the regulator and ASA from the Etha 2 into the Emek trigger frame I would need an Emek transfer pipe correct? The part numbers aren't listed in the manuals but it appears the Etha 2 transfer pipe is longer. At least it appears to be in the pictures in the manuals.

I found an Emek body kit on eBay that is lacking the parts I listed above. It is also lacking the three-way push pin and and the transfer pipe.

If I have this correct if I was to find a transfer pipe and the three-way push pin I should be able to swap the Etha 2 body over and have a working Emek.

Am I correct or am I missing something else?

It appears the transfer pipe is the same if this listing for the part is correct: https://spares.paintball.de/planet-e...e-assy/a-11987

I have decided to attempt to do this. I bought a used Etha 2 and the Emek parts I believe I need. Once I have everything I will start a new thread showing exactly what parts are needed. I decided to go with the Inception Fang trigger, their secret pin and the Eclipse FL 3-way. Hopefully it works out well.
