Period of
Product Use:
Less than a month2 of 2 people found this review helpful.

1 year
Products Used:
stock body
Marker Setup: Ion, Ion - XE conversion kit, 360 QEV, Kila Detents, Qlock, Empire Micro rail, Bloodline Branks Asa, Crossfire 68/45 HP
eVLution 3
Strengths: CHEAPEST BOB BODY (its full bob too :D)
Weaknesses: Back cap is kinda hard to grab onto... different breeches are out of the question

Review: i just got this last night, and i already love it. i had troubles cuz i got alot of other upgrades, and my battery harness was messed.

the threaded ring, it raises your feedneck a bit. im not quite sure exactly how much, but i should be getting some pics and i will do a comparison. the bob function is a HUGE bonus, cuz it sucks having to take apart your WHOLE MARKER to get at the bolt.

comes with new gripframe screws that are necessary to be used. it also has a new bolt stop.

you may want to lube the orings that are attached to the back cap, it is easier to turn this way.

about the different threaded breeches, the whole firing can/ breech is one piece. so if a company were to make a cocker threaded breech for it, it would need to replace the entire tube.

the feedneck, you could go with the stupid ring, i say just get a new qlock and sell yours to your buddy who happens to have an epiph.
Conclusion: my final statement is that it is an awesome upgrade, and any ion owner should get it. PLUS deadlywind makes bolt stalks for the XE now, so you can get a hollopoint bolt for it.

makes cleaning so much easier.
