In late 2015 the Eclipse GTEK launched to universal acclaim. Its rugged reliability combined with true high-end shot characteristics and performance meant it instantly appealed to a huge spectrum of players looking to experience a new Eclipse spool-valve marker at a mid-level price.



But from the outset it was clear that the Gamma Core drivetrain utilized in the GTEK was destined for greater things. Its ability to handle super-fragile paint, combined with almost imperceptible barrel-rise, a whisper-quiet sound signature and outstanding efficiency means it was a drivetrain that could compete with any high-end marker out there in terms of on-field performance. That it performs to such a high standard in temperatures as low as -20f and in environments where playing conditions can be in excess of +100f make the Gamma Core even more impressive.

The challenge then was to place the Gamma Core into a chassis that it deserved.

Cue the GTEK 160R.
The 160R takes the GTEK and pushes into the realms of a true high-end. It boasts all-metal billet-machined construction, on-board OLED graphical user interface, hose-less construction utilizing the proven AT Pipe system from the LV1.1 and the Geo3.5, stretched-out stance for an ultra-stable shooting platform with wraparound rubber fore and aft grips for comfort and control. It's everything you need to be competitive at any level, in any format, anywhere on the planet.

GAMMA CORE

The beating heart of the GTEK160R is the Gamma Core. A revolutionary new spool valve design using Breech Sensing Technology and a unique pneumatically latching spool to accurately control the exact amount of air released for each shot completely independently of the solenoid and the dwell time. This makes it highly efficient without the need for any electronic adjustment or tuning as well as making it supremely reliable in playing conditions ranging from -20f to +100f.







In order to be able to shoot the most fragile paint possible, the Gamma Core employs a very finely controlled 3-stage bolt acceleration profile to gently pick up the ball and push it into the barrel. The gas release for the firing pulse is also carefully tailored to maintain low peak pressure behind the ball which gives the GTEK 160R its distinctively quiet shot and smooth feel.

AT PIPE SYSTEM

Proven in battles at the very highest level in every format going, the AT Pipe allows Air Transfer from the ASA on the bottom of the frame into the foregrip-mounted SL4 Inline Regulator without the need for hoses or fittings.



The AT Pipe can be quickly and easily removed without the need of tools to allow access to the Inline Regulator or to remove the frame. Utilized on both the Ego LV1 and the Geo3.5 the AT Pipe has proven itself time and again to be a robust and reliable alternative to hose and conventional hose-less systems. The GTEK 160R uses a new all-metal AT OOPS assembly and a new AT POPS is available as an aftermarket upgrade.



ALL-METAL CONSTRUCTION

The GTEK 160R is constructed from 100% billet machined aircraft-grade anodized aluminium. With a metal feedtube and frame almost all flex has been removed from the GTEK. And the stretched pitch of the foregrip and frame make it a super stable platform that feels incredibly natural in the hands with plenty of room between the foregrip and trigger guard.





Being able to monitor marker performance or make adjustments to settings or firing modes on the fly shouldn't be a chore and it should never detract from your game. As such the GTEK 160R puts the graphical user interface right were it should be, on the back of the marker, just a glance away from your line of sight in any in-game situation. The black and white OLED packs a punch in terms of detail and information available with everything from Breech Sensor condition, firing mode, shot counter, rate of fire indicator and battery level available in an easy to digest format. The OLED also comes alive when called upon to adjust the marker settings. Using the power button and trigger there are a range of user settings that can be adjusted and optimized for each individual user. It allows the GTEK 160R to be configured to comply with any current league or format on the planet.

So I was going through some of my images from our Advanced Play sessions, and stumbled across these...There could be some telling features, but it could also just be a complete farce.

I think I saw someone shooting this at Cleveland. It was all covered in black tape though. Looked to me like a 3.5 but I didn't know why they'd be covering that up. Maybe an updated version of the GTEK.

The pictures would obviously tell otherwise but I think this has to be in relation to the next generation of the LV1.

Interesting. Do you remember what team?

And now that we are all talking about it, I remember seeing a picture of a Sandbagger with a taped up gun too. I just assumed he was trolling since it looked like a Geo 3.5 from that angle. It could have been this same gun though.

Anyone have any other pictures? This couldn't be only tested in Minnesota and Cleveland...

well, if it's the next Gtek, then we know it's got:
1) AT Pipe
2) Gas thru with a POPS

Other potential changes:
minor adjustments to the bolt now that they've had some time to get real world feedback and experience, maybe drop the pressure or raise the efficiency (even more?!)
composites changes to the frame?
Milling and colorways

I saw another thread claiming a 'Gtek2' less than 2 weeks ago. Time to go look around for it... But it looked extremely similar.. I believe in black, or 'wrapped' in black as other people might have seen. I'm glad they're coming out with a new one. It might depreciate the old one a little, but considering how strong of a platform the Gtek is, I find it very exciting. I bought an M2 over a CS1 because of how great of a design the Gtek is. I had seen many posts of people selling their CS1's to downgrade to Gteks. I love my M2, I love my Gtek. I would most definitely love a Gtek 2! Any body else happen to see that other thread?

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.
