Hey guys good to see the community is still thriving! I’ve recently dusted off my old marker being a planet eclipse etha probably dating back to roughly 2012-2015. I remember the last time playing detecting an air leak somewhere in the tubing system and was wondering how I go about locating where the leak is, what’s causing it (worn o ring etc.) and whether parts would be available on an old gun like this for the repairs? I could probably get hold of some air and put up a video of it shooting/leaking if that might help! Im also guessing the marker could do with a good service and re grease is this easy to do myself or should I take it to a specialist? Cheers in advance!

Check out the Eclipse tech videos such as this


Spares are available from retailers or eclipse directly, you can use the original spares kit if still held. The first thing is to clean and re-lube (looking for any o-ring damage etc), then after rebuild check for leaks etc

I think there where some Eclipse parts it was kinda advised to swap on the original Etha, something to do with one of the springs
Good memory there
It’s the ‘Etha Springless Poppet Kit’, and depending on manufacture date it may be factory fitted

The serial number of mine bought December 2014 : 90230-36400 had it prefitted
