I goofed/lost count by loading. Still super new to DAM mags. My only previous magfed adventure was with the TMC. I think it's 6 will fit fine in the 5rd, but 11 will NOT fit fine in the 10rd. I was just more surprised the gamma core and new followers made it seem like it was a dryfire, rather than make soup in the chamber.

Planet didn't make an Emek to Etha 2 conversion kit (or the other way around) so I wouldn't hold my breath. In fact, Planet has never made any conversion kits to turn a full gun into another full gun they sell.
From a magfed angle, I'm not sure of the benefit of an electronic version. Now swap the hopper on it, I suppose electronic could come into play. In fact, now that you mention it, I should probably play with my MG100 with a loader. I'll get back to you on this.

Personally, I would like an electronic trigger for the lighter trigger pull when sniping. I don't need any modes besides semi, but the lighter trigger pull would make for tighter groups.

^not true at all.

The trigger actuates a “3-way” that is pressurized. So even if you remove the trigger spring there is that “3-way” pressure/force that must be overcome when pulling the trigger.

I’d like to see a Mag-fed Etha 2...

A negligible amount..... If your that concerned about that then you should run a non ported barrel because what about tiny amounts of blow through wind!

I wouldn’t say a negligible amount...

There isn’t much difference without a spring in it.

I’m not concerned about it.

Just pointing out that you are incorrect. Do you even have an EMEK?

Five... And prototyped my own bodies so yeah.

A pnuematic trigger is way lighter than a mechanical one..... Yes there is a perceived break point but man.... Unless your doing some Carlos hathcock stuff I don't see how it will effect your shot characteristics.

You can visit the website, maybe buy a body and figure that one out yourself

You actually don’t have to have an EMEK to design a body for it. P.E. provided the CAD files...

The point is that removing the trigger spring on an EMEK doesn’t really make the trigger pull that much easier.

I don’t want a Mag-fed Etha 2 just for the lighter trigger though and after thinking some more about the possibility I realized that there would have to be another Board made because the Etha 2 Board blocks where the magazine attaches to the marker and that is also where the battery goes...

However, with the Light Pipes that the Etha 2 uses there is a easy solution for allowing use of the Eyes still. Just need to relocate the Battery, which shouldn’t be too hard. There is probably room in the EMC kit for a Battery or there could be a Foregrip for the Mag-fed Etha 2.

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.
