Review: I had seen the reports on the Stage 5 months before the pre-orders came out, to be honest I never thought I would get one and initially did not sign up for the pre-order of the 99. When the bodies started shipping some people backed out of their pre-order (idiots if you ask me). When I saw this on Lucky's website I knew I would only have one chance to order one, so order it I did. Three days later a box was sitting on my doorstep. I opened the box and inside was my Stage 5 (dust silver) and a sheet of stickers. The milling was flawless throughout the whole body, it truly was amazing. Because the body did not come with any installation directions I went to Lucky's forums and printed off directions that were done up by NOSAJ (not that you really need them they are still nice to have and they are a great help). I disasembled my Ion, took the bolt, QEV and Q-Lock (even though Lucky sent a feedneck) and started installing those parts. After installing everything and putting the body on the grip frame I tested her out; I had none of the problems that some of the other users had with gap between the body and grip frame and isses with the green bolt stop. I have had the body for a little over a year now and the only issue I have had was stripping out the back cap allen broach (which was my fault).
Conclusion: The Lucky Stage 5 is simply amazing. It simplifies the disasembly and maintainence of the Ion and you would not believe how many people come up to me asking me what I'm shooting. When I tell them an Ion it takes a couple seconds for them to tell me I'm lying. This hands down is the body to get, do not look at any other body kits, buy Lucky's new Stage 5.1, you will not be dissapointed.
