Well about a month ago I picked up an Etek 3 AM in a trade at my local pro shop.

From what I understand it is completely bone stock and in immaculate like new condition.

Well the past two weeks I have played with it I have been completely blown away with its performance. I kid you not smoothest shooting stacked tube I have ever shot and I have shot everything from old egos to timmys to creeds and there is almost zero kick or barrel rise. I have no idea how it was tuned or what accounts for how smooth its shooting. I have owned every other model of Etek released to date and I have never had one shoot nearly as nice as this. I always assumed you could never get an Etek to shoot this nice.

I know im not crazy because I had several people as well as a ref at the field check it out and they all agreed with me.

Has anything like this ever happened to you before or have you heard of it or am I just really lucky?
And if anyone has ever tuned an Etek this well how did you do it?

Thanks guys X

i have never had anything like that happen before. Does it sound like a cannon, like other Eteks or is it really quite too.
Moo.

If you know what you're doing with the LPR and dwell, it can be done. I wish PE made a pressure tester like Bob Long does with their guns, but they prefer you to never touch them because reliability is king.

I feel the same way with my Axe, it feels like Sex, but I've had others Axes and they didn't feel nearly as nice.

You can buy one, I think critical paintball makes one. Violent used to make them. http://violentseries...e070809ego.aspx

Some people can understand the principles behind dual regulated markers and can adjust them properly. Unfortunately I have lots of people bring markers to me to fix/tune and they just don't get it. I like the fact that Bob Long makes pressure testers because it takes the guess work out of it for those who just don't get it. I would have thought by now that Dye and PE would have started making pressure testers for there markers.

Thing is from what I understand it has never been tuned by anyone. Aside from the basic maintenance I do the thing has never seen a techs bench or anything.
