So its LP operating?
In so much as it's operating pressure is below 300psi, where low pressure is traditionally considered to start, then yes, it would be considered a low pressure marker.
Q:Where is the Serial Number Located?A:Under the battery inside the Frame
well i didnt want to start a new thread, so ill post here.
how is it compared to an 06 ego? in every way?
I own a etek and I have tested the 06 ego's. The only difference I find is the 06 ego has a higher bps rate with the stock board (doesn't matter cause only 15 bps is allowed in most tournys). Some internal differences are that the etek doesn't have a qev (don't matter this thing still shoots ropes), and it has a led screen not a lcd screen like the ego. I think the only reason people think lcd screens are better is because it alot faster to see and easyer to see what mode your in or what your customizing etc. Instead of trying to remeber the colors for your led screen. But also I have seen a guy who had a gun (can't remeber which one) and it had a lcd screen on it. The guy got shot in the lcd screen and then the screen went all blurrie and was junk. But there is a 1 in 1000 chance you would be hit there. So it doesn't matter to me which one. Hope this kind of helps. Oh also the etek is cheaper by about 200-300$.
Question: should I use my gun oil on my cure bolt?
I think that would be fine
Just lubricate the o-rings. No need to oil the bolt itself.
Thanks Uziel...and I couldn't find this answer for my question; I did a search in this thread and couldn't find it:
Now I know when lubricating the lpr and frm you need to use vaseline. How about the rammer housing? I've been mainly using my eclipse oil on the orings and on the rammer. Is this ok to? I haven't touched the solenoid yet so should I clean that before and after I use my E*Tek? Thanks for your help guys...
I wouldn't work on the solenoid unless you feel you need to. If you do, use Dow33. The oil supplied with the marker is the correct lubricant for the rammer.
.689 bore? you sure? I thought it was .693
Edit - I called PE. Barrel bore size is .693.
i have a ? i was told that the etek really only maxes out at 15 a second i havent shot one or havent seen one shoot i was told this by the pro at my pro shop prob stupid ? but owell just askin
etek is capped at 15 bps
If you are asking if 15bps is the absolute limit of the Eteks cycle rate, then no, it isn't. It may not cycle as fast as a normal Ego, but it will certainly cycle more than 15 times a second.
does the stock board use the laser sensor thing to detect trigger pulls or does it use a micro-switch?
Microswitch on a stock Etek board, Optiswitch on the '05, '06 and Maniac Ego board, microswitch and optiswitch on the '07 Ego board - you decide which of the two switches to use.
