Review: I really do love this gun. This was my first real speedball gun that i baught 2 years ago and it still works perfectly. I used to use my Tippmann 98 for woodsballing, and sold it to help buy this gun. I normally use it for speedball, but it works great for woodsball too. Its fast at 17 bps, or a few more depending on which board you have. Durable as well. Some people say that Ions are bad guns, but i found that as long as you clean it often and dont throw it in water (not that i have =D) it'll work great for a long time. I would reccomend a new trigger though. The stock trigger is plastic and mine broke within a month or two. Also, somehoppers do not fit easily because the threading changed on the gun. Don't try and force the hopper in if it doesn't fit or it might break the hopper. Also, the barrel that comes with the gun it a good barrel, but i bought a Freak jr. barrel from Smart Parts and found it shoots more accurately now.

All in all its a great gun. Cheap and great bang for your buck. Only real hold back is that C02 may damage the plastic parts of the gun. Otherwise it's great out of the box, but upgrades help!
Conclusion: I would definetely reccomend this gun to anybody who is a beginner at speed/woodsball or an experienced player who wants a fast, cheap gun.
