Review: i purchased my e-tek for $675 from actionvillage and i have to say this is an amazing gun. my exact setup is listed so you know what i was using when i got these results. i went to a field about an hour from where i live because they allow carry on paint, and i wanted to torture test this gun. i bought 5 cases of monster balls from wal-mart (some of the worst paint on the market). i shot them all in one day with ZERO CHOPS!!! not one. this gun is amazing. i was actually fairly accurate even though every ball was dimmpled on at least one side. maintaining this gun is fairly simple, if you can clean and service an ion you will have no problems with this gun, if you do the manuel is well writen and illistrated. if you still have problems, or lose some (o rings in my case), customer service is excelent, and they sent me replacement o-rings for free. as i mentioned i dont like spring return triggers, however, this is the best one i have used. its a blade trigger,( the best for walking) and has just the slightest bit of side to side movement it is pretty easy to get up to 14bps in semi,and its a very smooth marker. not to much in the way of kick, but it is a bit loud.(but no where near being autococker loud.)i wont go into the details here but for being an led marker instead of lcd, the board interface is very simple, any 12 year old with about 15 minutes of practice should be able to run this gun, however i would'nt recomend it for a first gun, simply because most people beat the heck out of first guns and may be to rough with the internals, i.e. soloniod, microline, board etc. my only real gripes about it are you cant put qev's in it, (with out lots of modifacation anyways) and that the board caps at 15bps, i know that more wouldnt be tornament legal, but it is nice to be able to show people what your marker is capable of, and a lot of fun at the target range.
Conclusion: All in all, if your looking for a good mid level gun, at a mid level price, and is very easy to run, this just might be the gun for you. I know i love mine.

Er...you do realize that some autocockers are the most silent markers around, right?

ok you said that you baught it from action village... and i was looking at them on the same site and they have at the very last line that it is 30 bps cappable... you say that stock board is capped at 15... are you saying that actionvillage must be counting on you to get a board for it or can you turn the cap off of your eteck... hope this wasnt to confusing would like a responce.. thanks
