........ And got an Ego6.

I fixed the leak in the Etek (Just had to replace some Orings on the LPR). And wanted to get an Ego6.

I saw this one and fell in love with it.

Traded Etek+68/3000 Nitro Duck+$40
Making it really Etek+$110.

We kept bolts, and regs(Etek reg looks much better IMO)

Specs
Dust Black Ego6
Dust Silver CCU Kit (Blue dust Ram cap:confused: )
Gloss Black CP Rail(Integrated frame was shaved:( )
Gloss Black CP ASA
Cure Bolt
Etek Reg
Dye UL

I'm sure I got the good end of the deal.

Only bad part is:
the macro leaks(Need new macroline)
Somewhere in the rammer housing leaks(He told me about it, small leak, quick oring change, and it should be good)

Future Plans:
New stock frame (I don't like the CP Rail.
Dust Silver Ram Cap
Dust Silver CP Sling Trigger (Fell in love with the trigger on my old Etek)
Dust Silver CP ASA (Match the rest of the gun.
Dust Black C-lever
Tadao Board

Looks great!

Replace rammer o-ring #11 (I think) and it should solve your problems? Maybe. I don't know. You'd have to be more specific with where the leak is, haha.

What I really wanted to get was a Dust green '06 ego, but we keep out CCU kit and red accents, so I would have a Christmas themed ego. That's what I really wanted to do.

But I saw this, and Dust Black/Silver was my 2nd in my want list, so I decided to go with this cause well the other people were ignoring me.

I never really liked the looks of a stock '06 reg so I wanted to keep the regs. I was surprised the guy said yes. But he was eager to get rid of at least one of his egos.

As for me liking it, if it had special organs, I would try and make Half baby, Half paintgun with it.

For the leak it's really not bad at all. The worst one is the macroline, but that's an easy fix. It's leaking somewhere behind the left grip frame, but I might send it into PE, and get them to tune it up.

I don't think this is going away anytime soon, unless I'm offered something I cannot refuse.

Check to see if it is leaking from the Rear QEV. If so, it is either A. That O-ring I specified earlier (the rear sealing o-ring on the rammer, basically) or B. Your QEV is clogged with Grease (thats why you have to use oil), you'll have to take it apart and clean it, or maybe poke at it a little with a blunt tool to see if you can get it to fix, C. your hoses, or D. the QEV needs loctite going into the Rammer sleeve.
