UL frame, UL barrel, Aluminum feedneck, dye on/off
Fantastic shooting gun, inexpensive, perfect for someone starting tournement play.
A lot of polymere parts, needs more aluminum or metal, whatever they use.
This gun is awesome, we picked it up for my brother NOV. 9 and were supposed to be either the first or second one in the untied states with the gun. We took it home and shot it right away and it never chopped, very accurate even with the stock barrel, a little louder than the DM6 but shoot almost the same. Feels really good in your hand and the accuracy blowed me away. Definetly recomend to newer or just anyone that doesnt want to spend a lot of money on a gun.
A+ gun...i recomend to anyone that doesnt want to spend a lot on a gun or anyone newer player
not trying to defend the ion or anything but I'll say this
with warrior bolt and QEV you'll get around 130-140 psi. Thats only a $35 upgrade. would recommend to replace the barrel with a system. UL barrels are over rated. Prefer a barrel kit any day.
as for banjo breaking, havent broken one.
My dm5 and ion are about the same, except the ion weights less, but then again it has a plastic shell. I do like my dm5 trigger, but dislike the high maintenance of it.
Unless you are new to paintball and dont have any equipment, why would you buy this or the epiphany? All have break beam eyes, no major problems that prevent you from shooting ropes. You dont need the latest and greatest, because lets just face it, the technology hasnt changed, only the price Look at the dm series and how much that has changed.

easy go to programing mode using the switches on the board tap the trigger until it flashes yellow, hold the trigger down for a second and release and for semi pull the trigger once for psp pull the trigger twice, for millenium mode pull the trigger tree times.
Yes, the PMR comes with eyes, however for those of you that are kind of knocking the ion you have to realize that the ion has far more customizability than the PMR. It also has the potential to be upgraded to the performance of a Shocker or better. The PMR has alot of potential for upgrades but the ion blows it out of the water for two reasons.
1. Its been out longer, and 2. Aftermarket companies working with Smart Parts. So if you are looking for a project gun that you will build over a while and turn it into a performance gun, get the ion, if you want a good gun now, that can be upgraded a bit less get the PMR.
