Does anyone know if the Kila Instinct Eye covers that come with the Magnetic Ball Detents for the Etek 3 fit on the Etek 4? I know the cut on them is different from stock so I'd like to know before I go ahead and grab them.
Thanks in advance!

What's wrong with the stock planet eclipse detents? I always thought they did the job fine.

I doubt it, the eye covers were thinned down quite a bit on the 4 if I remember correctly.

There's nothing wrong with the stock eye covers at all, but I believe their detents need to be used in conjunction with the eye covers to work properly (the magnet is in the eye cover).

I'm not really concerned if they fit flush with the milling on the body, more so that they actually sit correctly in the body and the hole for the screw lines up. I guess a follow up question would be do the stock eye covers for the Etek 3 fit the Etek 4?

He wasnt asking whats wrong with the stock eye covers, he was asking whats wrong with the stock detents.

Sorry I misread that. I plan on trying to really dial in my gun once I get a few more cases through it and playing a lot this summer, also I'm a back player and really lay down paint so I would like the peace of mind of not worrying about the wear on the stock detents.

It's a pointless upgrade in my opinion. They cost almost 45 bucks, and for that price you can get enough of the stock detents, which work great, to have detents for as long as you will own the marker.

This is getting a bit off topic lol I appreciate the info you guys have given but all I'm curious about is if A: Kila Instinct eye covers for the Etek 3 fit on the 4 and B: If the stock Etek 3 eye covers fit on the 4

don't buy them. i did, big mistake. on the first pair they sent me the back wasn't milled out of one of them. i contacted them and they sen't out another pair. those fit, but the detents were so poorly manufactured that after a few shots they just broke, each set from both pairs broke. i never got a full day of play without them breaking. i eventually got my money back, just don't bother buying them
