Review: i bought this gun thinking it was a great back up gun. IT WAS THE BIGGEST MISTAKE EVER!! It is terribly unaccurte even with my freak kit and top grade paint. the macro line is very low quality and doesnt fit correctly. the asa adds about a inch and a half to your tank making you put the take over your shoulder. It leaks weekly. from the swivel, internals and many unpredictable places. the stock barrel make it even more unacurrate than it is with an upgrade barrel. the feedneck is as very tall and wont fit a higher end hopper. you will break the feedneck on your hopper. it is VERY loud!! It can be heard blocks away. the velocity drastically drops when shooting a about 8 bps. the reg is not anthing to be amezed about. the qev isnt good. the trigger is terrible!! i am currently using my 3 new stock trigger becase the get shot and break. or the magnet part breaks off, the metal shreads VERY EASY!! it shreded the meatal when i screwed it in! the feedneck shreds and ruins the threads when taken off
Conclusion: Not a gun that you want to have. it leaks and is made and desinged poorly.

2 out of 10

This reviewis completely inacurate. The Ion doesnt even have a QEV stock, and if you're gun was set up properly you wouldnt have velocity problems. the feedneck is a pain but i have yet to see or hear of anyone have them break on the hopper as you put it. and if you have a freak and good paint and it is innacurate, try cleaning the barrel or properly sizing youre paint to barrel. guns aren'ts accurate, the paint to barrel match is. right a real review next time, not just one to rip apart a product for fun.

Dispute:
none of this is true i have used multiple ions and this has never happened on any. This is also a better marker in my opinion to any you have said to have used why would you use the better marker as a backup

I love my ion. Yes the feed neck didnt fit my halo.. but that was a fast fix.. all you have to do is take the top o-ring out of the feed neck and it fits like a charm
