Stock Ion with an APE board and qev. Clamping feedneck, and freak barrel.
Super light weight = no kick
None that I have seen
I have tested many of the bolts that have come out for the Ion in search of the best bolt. I recently purchased the L7 to see what the hype was all about. After doing some testing, and playing with it out on the field 3 times, I received it I realized that TechT has done it again. They pushed the envelope, and made a truly extreme bolt.
I was chronoing super consistent....plus or minus 2.....at a pressure of 150. With any other bolt I got plus or minus 10-15 fps over the chrono, and was at 180psi.
This bolt has NO KICK. I know people say that about every bolt, but this one truly has the least. Again, Ive tested them.....this is the winner folks.
It weights just 8.5 grams....thats way lighter than anything else Ive tried, and you can tell the difference between this and the L6. The L7 is quite a bit nicer feeling.
I get between 1500 and 1800 shots of my 68/4500 with a dwell of 15 and pressure at 140-150psi. Its hard to pin point it because my fills vary a bit.
I was able to get the bolt to cycle at 30bps with no shoot down.
Its the most accurate, air efficient, and has the least kick of any bolt I have tested. If you are looking for the best bolt, I think you would be smart to get this one.
Hi, I'm here to yell at you. Apparently, you have never seen my Ion. I have a stock bolt and reg, and my gun has absolutely NO shootdown. And before you say I'm not shooting that fast, I have every Virtue upgrade made to date and can empty my hopper in well under 10 seconds. Hope you've learned something.
I'd like to believe he isn't lying... look how high is pressure and dwell is.... he sacrificed some efficiency so that he could fire quicker without getting shoot down. I'd love to see the video too though.
well i get +- 2 with an evil reg but there is no way an ion can cycle at 30bps even with an upped reg and anyways on semi auto the fastest trigger walking speed is 24bps set by lasoya on a karnivor......
Stock bolt + SP QEV and under 120 psi. If I put it up to 180, I can't imagine what my velocity would be. Not saying anything more than adding my voice to the other skeptics. There are a couple things in this review that just don't seem to add up as they are currently stated.
