Review: At first, this was a great product. It looks cool and totaly makes my ion look killer!
It is easy to install (you need a 90 degree elbow not included) for it to attach. other than that it has all the great stuff that you need to put it on.

At first it worked liked a charm. then i noticed that the bleed started to not work properly ( bleeding at wrong time or it would not stop letting air out aka leaking) I fixed this by replacing the o-rings that are on the pin in the on/off (comes with 2 extra o rings). this fixed it for a few weeks then the problem came up again. Then i took it to my local proshop to fix it. they did the same thing. replaced the o-rings. two days later in the middle of a game is started to leak. Later i checked the o-rings and they were busted again. the reason is the poor design. the threads that the knob runs on shreads the o-rings. A little bit of dow 33 can slow this process down a little but it is impossible to fix.

The rail it comes with is good. Yet you may find yourself tighting it over time. A little bit of locktite on the screws will fix this. The rail holds the asa in place with a BB that a screw pushes on. if you ajust this and lose the bb (which is easy to do if your not carful) can be a pain in the but!.



Conclusion: Over all it was a good asa with some flaws in design. If you are going for cosmetic on your gun GET IT! but if you are going for a function.this asa is not for you.

how many shots do you think you got with one O-ring until you had to replace it

I never had to replace it, He probably got a lemon. Tell NDZ about your problem.
