Review: Pretty straight forward review. Ordered the body direct from DeadlyWind using paypal and it was shipped almost immediately. Big props to them on the shipping; I think I had the body kit in my hands 3 or 4 days after I ordered it! Installation is very easy, especially if you've already pulled the gun apart for any cleaning and maintenance. It is a direct replacement for the stock mods required.

Basically it is an aesthetic upgrade. I don't see any performance increase from it. The weight increase is neglible. I can't tell the difference.

The anno work is very nice and the look of the gun is completely different now. Actually it's quite funny because the shape of the DeadlyWind body makes it look even more like a Shocker so it throws a few people for a loop when they first see it.
Conclusion: Quality product, fast shipping, great looking upgrade. The price is stiff when you consider $100 upgrade on a $300 gun but worth it if you're not into the plastic look. Overall I'm very happy with the purchase and recommend it to anyone who wants to drastically change the look of their ION.

you cant say that a 100 dollar price tag is a bad thing for a body kit, find me a cocker body kit that costs anywhere close to 100(new)

yea, but u shoulda waited, all the newer deadlywind bodys have it so u can remove the bolt from the back

i dont see why you will need to pull the bolt out...unless in my case you clean your gusn every day regardless of codition........learned that from my real M4

I think that bolt out back just makes life easier.

no, but its only a little heavier. if you get a newer one, it replaces the donut w/ a derlin one so thats why its not much heavier.
