Review: This is a fairly good gun for the price. It normally cost around $170 which gets you around 15bps(stock) and you have a few different stock board firing modes. The Gun has a horrible gas efficiency and bad battery life. When the batteries get low there isn't even a light that flashes. This then leads to several problems. My gun personally, my friend's gun, and a few others have broken after around 5 months of use. I took the gun to a paintball shop where I had a warranty on the gun and they cleaned it for me. Two days later the gun broke. The same exact problem happened to my friend and another guy at the field that day. Coincidence???
Conclusion: Basically you get what you pay for in this gun. The stock parts aren't that great. If your playing rec ball its a good gun because its small and shoots kinda fast. If your looking for a speedball tournament gun this is not it. For around $30 more you can get a Proto SLG. This gun is kinda hard to clean but if you really want to go ahead and get it.

The battery life isn't bad at all from my experiences and most of the problems people have with their Ions is them not knowing what they're doing. If you know what you're doing you shouldn't have any major problems with them. What exactly was the problem?
