    Cool The "New" Old School

    Got my Gmek frame in today.

    Turns the Planet Eclipse Gtek into a mechanical marker.

    Not as nice a trigger as I had hoped, but better than a cocker slider.

    Does have a slight bit of front to back slop like a mag does sometimes.

    Looking forward to playing with it.

    I think there are trigger adjustment screws that can take that up.

    Played with adjusting the two screws a bit but any changes weren't noticeably.

    Still have yet to play with it, I did shoot some in the back yard and it is fun to shoot.

    No I actually almost like it.

    100 times better than the slide on that other one I bought....

    With a little practice they will be telling me I'm firing too fast.

    But I do have to have that Emek with the hinge frame too.

    And a CS2 while I'm at it....

    Love me some gamma core.

    Cracks me up...
    10 years ago planet eclipse was selling an e frame for the autococker toting it as the baddest thing on the planet.
    Now they are selling a mech frame for a electric gun...

    Just me? No one else see the irony?

    It's the cyclic world. As common place as it was 12 years ago to electrofy a cocker, electros are now the norm and being in abundance. Plus, PE does not have a mech in their stable, so it makes sense in R & D to have a gun that can be switched from the base to mech.

    Zondo, also before you go wanting a double trigger for it, shoot it. I didn't like it, as it was close to a cocker slider but different enough that i personally didn't like it.

    My opinion the trigger is way better than a cocker, I can't tolerate a cocker slider at all.

    But it doesn't surprise me that we have opposite views.

    How does trigger compare to a mech mag with stock RT/X, OR AIR valves? How about ULT?

    I never used a single trigger on a mag enough to compare to be honest.

    Its much softer than a new (hardly used) cocker slider I can say that....

    Anyone seen that ?

    I am going to have to get one for the other Gtek I have.

    I've a preference for double triggers anyway.

    The gmek frame has its own feel. It has a lot of take up but resembles a cocker slider trigger more than a mag trigger. The mag pull is short while i feel the gmek trigger is longer.

    Boston paintball has a video out covering it. It looks a lot nicer than the standard gmech to me.

    I actually talked to the guy that was making them. Seems like a cooly guy. I don't think he was trying to start an arms race or anything just trying to come out with a walkable drop in option.

    Out of curiosity: can one electrify the single trigger frames as well? I acually think it would be cool to have a single trigger electronic marker again.

    By thw way, that GMEK of your is astonishingly beautiful, going_home!

    nope, the mech frame is only mech.

    What a shame... Is it because they have something inside the frame that would prevent one from installing the corresponding electronics?

    I'm not going to say it can't be done.

    The opposite can be done, mech in the stock frame.

    Thanks for the pics. That clarifies it. As you said, doable, but it would take some mods.

    Whoa! It can't be THAT bad, can it? Are you sure it was installed correctly? What size tank?

    A big hiss every shot.

    It was ok but I just went back to the Gmek frame.

    I thought it would be a big improvement but it wasn't...
