Review: My first impression
I was looking to buy a new gun and I was considering the SP Nerve or an alias Timmy. I did my research on both of them and I went to the store to test them out. They didn't have the Nerve because I guess its pretty old? So I tried out an Alias. The Alias shot pretty nicely but they told me I would have problems with maintainence because I never owned a high end gun before. Also Timmys need to be perfectly set or else it wont shoot to its full potential. So then I looked around and I saw the Etek. When I held it, it was wow. So light and it perfectly modded to my hands.

Accuracy
When I first shot my etek, it was pretty damn accurate even with the stock barrel. I was even using crappy Wal-mart balls and it still shot ropes.

Maintenance
The maintenance is very easy. All you have to do is clean the bolt after each day of play and then lube the rammers o-rings. The only thing that suck is there is no allen wrench included to remove the ram cap.

Consistency
The reg isnt very good until you put 6000 some shots into it. After that, it settles down to a +/- 2 or 3 and it is fine.

Efficiency
This gun is extremely effiecient. I use a 45/45 and I can still get off a very large amount of shots. Also, the pressure doesn't effect the shots until there is such a small amount of air left it is practically empty, basically meaning that it will operate at 1000psi with the same effectiveness as at 4000psi.

Speed
I think it is very fast. Out of the box I could easily get a consistent 15 BPS on semi. The trigger is really easy to adjust. However, I think the manual made some mistakes on how to adjust the trigger.
Conclusion: BUY IT! If your range is from 600-800, this is the marker to get. Dont consider anything else! Best part is, it rips right out of the box, no ups needed. and PE customer service rocks!
