Review: Ok, I bought my Ion from a friend of mine 6-months ago as he needed the money. It came with this Strange Ion body. He said that its a great body since the bolt can be serviced without tearing the gun completely apart.

I let the gun sit for a couple of months (it was snowing outside) and finally when I go to play around with the gun and see what it can do... it doesn't work. I go online and find the troubleshooting guide and look up why the bolt is stuck forward. It says that I need to clean the gun and probably replace a number of o-rings. So, I do what it says, first cleaning and then taking the gun to a paintball shop for the o-rings and their diagnosis. They tell me to come back that night and pick the gun up. I get a call about 2 PM and they tell me that the rear fitting is broken, internally broken and that they don't have that part.

I had to buy a new standard body, fitting, firing can, and o-rings as they were bad as well which all cost me around $150. Now, I do think that a normal fitting would work, if they designed their body correctly in the first place.
Conclusion: The moral of the story is to stick with standard parts as much as often, because when little pieces break it can cost a fortune in the end.
