Hi Guys,

Probably going to look into getting the PE Emek sometime in the next 6 months or so. I'm really getting into the mech side of things. What would you say is the absolute most important upgrade to get for the Emek. Preferably asking those who have played with it completely stock and then had some"game changing" upgrade fitted. Let me know your thoughts!

Word of caution, they are great markers but spending all the monies on all the aftermarket parts.... well it's no longer as great a value for money.
Get it, go play with it for a few days then consider spending money if you already have a decent, goggle, mask, pack, MOT money put aside, started your pension early............

What can you change that almost makes sense

ASA - Pops ASA is more convenient and screwing / unscrewing a tank is not going to do any favours to the threads in the long run in the long run.
Barrel - it's open bolt, doesn't really need a barrel kit but everyone loves to spend money on them.
Hair 45 valve - yes it will have a lighter trigger pull, clearly never shot an automag or brass eagle jaguar.....

Other stuffs if you have money and really want to spend....

Back cap - don't recall the last time I needed to drop all the guts out mid game....
3D printed / metal replacement parts for other stock parts - purely aesthetic now

Yes I've seen BZ's pimped out Emek for £450. For that money you really are verging on going for a nice second hand mid to high end marker.

Also, with all those upgrades mentioned. Does it feel/perform aswell as a marker in the same price range (emek plus aftermarket parts)?

Massive fan of the emek platform.

The POPs asa is a really good quality of life upgrade. It is the only one I really feel is a necessary change.

I have a CF dye ultralite barrel on mine... but that is because I use that barrel on everything (personal preference... I like how it looks).

I found that you can still hand crank the stock bolt cap if you don't torque it down too much when putting the bolt back in.

You really don't have to do anything out of the box with these markers... they perform great, and are very simple to maintain... people will wax lyrical about how they bought a hair valve / bang switch / sweet spot trigger and can now rinse 15bps over the chrono... but who cares.
