Good job sir !

I'd personally be more inclined to upgrade the Etha 2 with this.

There maybe needs to be more advertising aimed at the Etha 2 ?

Both are fantastic markers, especially for their price points.

That's a great point. We are so wrapped up in the fun of the Mechanical revival that we often forget about the fun electronic guns. We are closed to sold out on this run but will keep that in mind.

There was some dealer insider trading that occurred here. A lot of the options were sold out prior to Simon's 12:00 release.

Highly doubt it, some Canada stores had theirs go live at Noon, but that was an hour before East Coast. Be faster next time.

If you say so. I found two sites with them posted up prior to 1200 east coast time when I was leaving work with the base model colors already sold. I suppose I could have purchased one of the other annos throughout the day, but there were definitely some early deals. I am sure I'll be able to scoop one up at some point and am not really concerned, just sharing my observations. It is good to see dealers getting some business during these tough times and I am honestly very surprised at how quickly units sold (must be the timing with the stimulus check).

I love everything about these Emek's minus the little extra piece on the barrel tip. Reminds me of the goofy CMI 'thunderpig' that never shot right.

Love ID. However, I have to ask why not just buy a M170r at that point? No GRN anywhere, and all the upgrades already.

So dealers jumped the gun, hardly insider trading. These were discussed in a live stream Sunday that Tuesday was the day. Plan better, don't whine.

I'm glad the 200 are almost sold out.

Because that would only make sense of you are buying an entire upgraded gun. This is more for people who already have an emek an want to update it. Just another upgrade path for people rather than selling and buying complete guns.

Also, this product also works for the Etha 2, if you have one of those it's a nice customizable option as well.

You could. Thats an option. OR you could upgrade the Emek that you have. Some people like upgrading stuff some don't, Simon is providing that option.

... because every one thinks differently. For example I prefer the GRN. I can beat the heck out of it and not care. It's great!

Congrats Simon. It seems you hit this one out of the park.

Good news! The tips are threaded, so you can swap out the tip for any number of other options. I like the "birdcage" flash hider type a lot of the time, I've got an Arrowhead and an Apex tip, and there's a bunch of others out there as well. PLUS, the 3D print option. Know a guy who printed a Barrett M82 style compensator. Didn't work well with barrel covers, but it looked cool.

And Inception also has non-threaded conventional fronts available if that's more your style.

the threaded tips arenít my favorite. I would of rather had a pops anno matched or a slim line tip or even the snub nose. The barrels are great tho. I just donít like the extra length the tips add. Iím still happy with the purchase.

That won't be anno matched, but also not wrong. The peepee tip can be swapped, and well, it was free with the barrel case. Still a great value

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
