Review: well I've had this gun for a while and can honestly tell you that it kicks ass. for 250 this gun is just about impossible to beat. to start off, the body is sweet. I took it to the shop and all 3 guys in there gave me comments about how bad ass it looked. the 90* frame is also much easier to rip with than a 45 frame, only the trigger guard sticks out too much so you can't hold the top half of the reg. the body looks sweet but its pretty heavy. the trigger is easy to walk and adjust but the side play can get annoying at times. since these are what set a razor ion apart from a regular ion I decided to get them out of the way first. now, first, the weaknesses. the kick on this gun is pretty bad but nothing that'll really bother you once you get used to it. not to mention I bet that kick would be pretty much gone if you got a lighter bolt. its also a hassle to maintain because it takes a good 5 minutes to take it apart and lube the bolt then put it back together. this can be fixed by a bolt out back body. the consistancy is +-9 with everything stock but that should probably one of the things you try and tighten up first. the feedneck was pretty much an ignorant oversight on SP's part. its a huge hassle and pretty much has to be replaced. now for the good part. even with a crap stock barrel it shoots a pretty consistant group. the speed is capped but 17 bps is still damn fast. even though the body is heavy its still much lighter than any other marker I've ever owned. now for the best part. I like to tinker and since this is any ion, it probably has more aftermarket parts than any other gun in existance.
Conclusion: I would recommend buying this gun if you will eventually have the time and money to buy aftermarket parts. that way you can really make this gun your own and increase the performance immensely. if you can't then you should go with another gun. due to the problems that were basically oversight on SP's part I'll give it an 8. its still an excellent gun though. sorry for the long winded review that probably didn't make any sense.

You must be a kid and have no idea what you are spouting. The marker has little to no kick and the stock barrel is the linear barrel that SP sells as an aftermarket upgrade.
