Review: Well, I guess I played with a Lemon because of what happened.

Basically, got to shoot approximately a hopper. After I refilled, the gun was loosing velocity. Called the Proshop, and didn't help at all. Brought it in, and they took a look at it. He said it was the velocity, so he aired it up, took a shot, turned the velocity up, took a shot, turned the velocity up, took a shot, than turned it up all the way and blew out the regulator. Got it sent into Smart Parts to get a new regulator, and it came back, not shooting well still. Now it either shoots at approximately 290-300 or not at all.

Other than that, I noticed the feedneck is horrible. Adjustible my ass.
Trigger still sways a bit from left to right.
The duckbill ASA has my hatred on all levels.
The power button is still a bit annoying to use.

On the good side though, it is cheap, pretty light weight, and has Bolt Out Back which allows for great, easy maintenence.
Conclusion: Obviously, with my experience, I would not recommend. It also seems that there were a bad bunch of Ion XE's, seems like I've got one of them. So don't really take my review too much, but, what happened to me, can happen to you as well.

For about under100 bucks you can solve all the problems, except the drop off you have. The upgrades are well worth it.

I dont experiance any with my XE.

1) The stock duckbill hates your tank. Make sure its screwed in all the way,
2) The reg some times comes loose during play if you hold it too tightly. Check it.
