Review: I got this gun and i wanted to run it through its paces before i accually used it in a tournament. it exeeded my expectations. I think this gun competes with a PM5 but i only got to test one. It far exceeds the ion in performance. I hate ions because they for one look dumb and they are much harder to work. for 200 the upgrade from an ion to an epiphany is well worth it. The only gun that i think might steal the epiphany's thunder is the invert mini. the proto rail doesnt make it. the invert mini and the epiphany are definatly the guns to get if you are in that price range.
Conclusion: get this gun. stock it is good enough to win my approval. and that is tough because i really dont like most guns. so get it. if you dont belive how easy this thing is to rock then test it out. I dont have to prove you wrong because the gun will if you test it. trust me.

Lol. The epiphany is the low end of the market for 400 dollars its just a copy of an ion with metal pieces and you cant remove the bolt still. The proto rail and mini are definetly miles ahead for the fact that There new and the mini uses a different style of working, Dye had to completely rethink the rail because it uses boost forward tech which btw is completely new for dye.

i dont think you have tried the gun. this thing is based on the ion yes. but it is a vast improvement. you must have only read about them. if you use them you would know that they are in competition with the mini and the rail. in my opinion i like how the mini and the epiphany work. im not a huge fan of proto which could have influenced my decision not to get the rail. and about the bolt. im pretty sure you can remove it. (havent tried yet) you just have to take it apart. (i dont want to do that). look just try the gun. i think the worst insult to this gun is saying it is a copy of an ion. it isnt. it is based on the ion with huge improvements in every area. not a pretty copy. a pretty copy would be a dynasty ion, redz ion, or ion pro. all of which look ugly

mikeymikey, is 100% right the Epiphany is a huge improvment over the stock ION. I'm yet to see a stock ION and I havent seen very many uped Epiphanys yet, theres really no need to, the gun works great right out of the box. The Rail is an okay gun but like the ION it needs udgades right out of the box because that has to the worst trigger i have used. The Mini is a good gun I just feel its to small for me, but for a smaller player with smaller hands I'm sure it works great.
