Planet Eclipse Gtek 170R
The original Gtek was the first Eclipse marker to feature the now-iconic Gamma Core drivetrain. Efficient. Smooth. Quiet. Gentle on even the most fragile paint. And reliable beyond comprehension. From frozen wastelands to scorched earth deserts the Gamma Core delivers all of its potential, all of the time.
So the decision to continue with the Gamma Core in this, the Second Generation of Gtek was a simple one. A no-brainer. But that didn't mean the rest of the marker wouldn't see a serious overhaul. The 170R combines a raft of advanced features to bring the Gtek line bang up to date.
The main focus has been achieving a completely hoseless version of the Gtek, while still retaining simplicity of assembly and of course, reliability. This has been achieved by placing the brand new inline regulator directly adjacent to the new POPS assembly in the base of the frame moving the battery into the foregrip, and mounting the solenoid inside the frame, rather than mounted to the bottom of the body. Even the new breech sensor system, that utilizes prismatic light pipes to guide the infrared light through the breech, is attached to the frame. This means that all critical components are now housed within the frame, simplifying the design, making maintenance and break-down far quicker and easier. Adding to the simplicity of the package, the 170R also includes toolless access to the eye covers, detent, battery and of course the drivetrain and bolt.
These updates all go towards making the 170R incredibly simple to clean and maintain. It's a pleasure to live with, both on and off the field.
But of course there is more to the 170R than just reliability and simplicity. The 170R also comes fully accessorised with a range of features that you would expect to find on an Eclipse marker of this quality and pedigree.
There is an OLED display with shot counter, game timer, Rate of Fire indicator and a whole array of tournament specification firing modes. There is the latest Eclipse lowrise clamping feed. Shaft5 threaded 2-piece 14.5" barrel. POPS ASA. And of course, full metal construction designed to give the 170R super sleek looks and a featherweight feel that makes the 170R just so nice to play with.
Whether it's the low recoil keeping your aim on point and target in your sights, shot after shot, or the quiet sound signature keeping you concealed from the enemy as you stealthily prowl through the undergrowth, the 170R offers something for every player and every style of play. Performance. Efficiency. Reliability. Simplicity.
The Gtek170R has it all.
And it is destined to become the marker of choice for every aspiring player.
The beating heart of every GTEK marker is the incredible Gamma Core. A revolutionary spool valve design that uses Breech Sensing Technology and a unique pneumatically latching spool to accurately control the exact amount of air released for each shot completely independently of the solenoid and the dwell time. This makes it highly efficient without the need for any electronic adjustment or tuning as well as making it supremely reliable in playing conditions ranging from -20f to +100f. In order to be able to shoot the most fragile paint possible, the Gamma Core employs a very finely controlled 3-stage bolt acceleration profile to gently pick up the ball and push it into the barrel. The gas release for the firing pulse is also carefully tailored to maintain low peak pressure behind the ball which gives the GTEK 170R its distinctively quiet shot and smooth feel.
The Gtek170R's hoseless and toolless design gives the player more freedom and enables quick and easy access to batteries and the breech sensor.
The slick blade trigger provides the player with 4 levels of trigger adjustment.
Powered by the ground-breaking gamma core drivetrain, the Gtek170R can go toe-to-toe with any opponent on any battlefield in any weather without breaking a sweat.
With its clean, slick, blade-like lines, the Gtek170R is a tool sharpened and ready to perform at any level.
