Planet Eclipse GTEK M170R
With the Mechanical and Classic paintball revolution in full effect, it’s time to sprinkle some old skool cool on this latest of platforms. We present the all-new M170R.
Of course, the M170R retains all of the key features of the Gtek 170R. The new POPS ASA assembly feeds air from the tank to the new SL6 regulator in the frame, and the Gamma Core drivetrain is accessed by the toolless pop-up bonnet release. The 2-Piece 14.5″ Shaft 5 barrel is standard, as is the new low-rise clamping feedtube and hoseless foregrip. Detents are also accessed via a toolless latching mechanism to keep maintenance as quick and easy as possible.
But where the M170R differs is in the trigger department. Designed specifically to comply with the latest Classic Format regulations, the M170R is built around a fully mechanical single trigger frame-set. The all new trigger has 3 points of adjustment for activation point, post travel, and spring return strength.
It has dual roller bearings on the trigger pivot, and utilizes a secondary set of linear bearings in a custom housing for the push rod that activates the 3-way assembly. The result is an incredibly smooth, and infinitely adjustable trigger mechanism that operates the purely pneumatic 3-way and drivetrain. No sear to drop. No timing to adjust. Nothing to wear out. Just a super high performance, bulletproof system.
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 M170R offers something for every player and every style of play. It’s destined to become the mechanical marker of choice for every player, no matter what level they may be competing at.
