So I've been looking for a new gun, and decided that I want an Etek.

I've heard very good things about ease of maintinance, and how it hardly ever chops paint, even on bad days.
This is all the Etek 2.

But now, they are making the Etek 3..

So...my question is, should I just buy a used Etek 2, or save up for an Etek 3?

Thanks in advance for any help!


EDIT: I can't spell in the morning..

The ETek 2 is AWESOME but the ETek 3 is absolutely incredible. You cant go wrong with either one but I would save up and buy a 3

Used ETek 2 goes for about $300 give or take
The new ETek 3 LT goes for $470 or so new.

Just figure out what is the best option for you and you will shoot faces with either one.

The LT is the composite material one, right?

Is the entire gun itself composite, or just certain parts?

The eye covers, frame, and feedneck.

The theory is if this stuff breaks, then the metal version wouldve been bent beyond repair anyway. Either way you'd have to get a new part. It is lighter though. I wish they wouldve made it so you can use the LCD board in the LT frame because I dont see a reason to get an AM.

BTW, I'm planning to get an Etek3 around christmas time. Its been a LONG time since I bought a new gun and an even longer time since I shot an open bolt/stacked tube. I'm very excited.
