Review: I have been researching for a new gun since my Angel broke for about 2 months. Went to CC paintball and they recommended the DM7 and Vice over the Etek2. They told me that it is a gas hog and that I would get only 600 shots on a 4500/68. I was discouraged, but talked to a few more stores and they all mentioned that it is gas efficient. At $675, free tank, and zick kit, I decided to give it a shot.

The kit comes with a nice aluminum/sponge casing, allen wrenchs, barrel condom, extra bolts and O-rings, and gun oil. The first time I picked up the gun I was shocked at how light it was compared to my Angel. I could only pull 7-10 bps on my Angel, I know it is slow, but with the ramp set at 15.4bps I can rip at 15.4 bps with ease on the Etek. Like I said in weakness is that I go through too much paint because I can shoot so much faster now!!! At the chorno I was shooting between 254-260. By the way to CC paintball dude, you were wrong about the air efficiency buddy! I got from a 3000psi/45ci tank 900 shots!!! With a full 4500psi I estimated that I would get 1350. A 4500 psi/68ci tank would probably give close to 1800 shots!!! The etek2 actually shoots the same as the EGO I shot for a game IMO, but is not as noisy and less kick. The accuracy seemed to be ok at 15.4bps, but it was windy so I am not sure how accurate the gun is. At that rate of fire, I do not think any gun can be very accurate. It was my first time playing with the gun so I will need a few more outings and no wind to judge whether or not this marker is accurate at high rates of fire. Anyways, for the money I do not think there is a better gun. The only question I have is if the marker is reliable after a years worth of use. Will post again in year to let you know.

By the way Dye and Planet Eclipse returned my emails on performance questions, Bob Long did not even return my email, what poor service and the reason I did not get the Vice!
Conclusion: For $675, this is a screaming buy. Two other guys on my team want to get one after they watched me rip through paint.
