    No problem, i will get a couple of pics sorted later today and post them up, gun is less than 1 year old and still has the complete spares kit. And the nice people at GI Sports Europe provide back up/service.
    Cheers

    You might also consider the Empire Mini GS, Eclipse Etha 2 and Eclipse LT. All high quality good performing markers. Axe 2.0 is also good. You won't go wrong with any of those. It comes down more to ergo preference, aesthetics and price, of course.

    Etha 2 all day as long as you like the asthetics and ergonomics of it.The Etha 2 is the Best marker for the money with support at cpps and most major events as well as youtube videos and chat/phone support. I would definatly recommend you hold both to see if you like the axes ergonomics as I really didnt. I prefere my hands a little less cramped together.

    I really like my Etha 2. I don't understand why people knock the ergonomics. As for aesthetics, I am completely indifferent between nylon and aluminium components as long as the marker performs, and it does. An oled board would be nice but once you learn the coloured lights settings it's not that important.

    I have an gtek and a 160r. I much prefere the ergonimics of the gtek over the etha 2. I think its the shape of the front grip tha tI dont like.Not knocking ht etha 2 in anyway its a rock solid marker that can fire any paint in any conditions even if you forget to clean/lube it for months. The gamma core is awesome. I have one team mate whos primary is now an etha 2 and 2 whos backup are both etha 2.

    Nylon over ally?? Since owning both gtek versions the 160r just feels better in your hand and (again) just feels like a more stsable firing platform than the standard gtek maybe because of the extra weight of the ally.
