Review: I bought the ion and iv beat this thing to hell and now its time for the review

strentghs: this gun is reliable its never failed me, its a quick little package i can shoot it up to 25+ bps on ramping and about 12 in semi,

barrel: its alright some peopel get a junky one id say get a freak but the stock one is extremly accurate for outta the box

reg: its alright for a out the box reg, i got a good one and got maybe +/- 1 alot, though adjusting velocity was a pain in the but, a cp fixes that

trigger: i liked the stock one it felt nice but it was just a little too messy for me so i picked up a cp slingblade, plus the stock one can break if it takes a hard enough impact

the feedneck: this thing is junk it can work for a while but its a pain to fit halos into it, once those orings are gone id say buy a qlock it adds to looks and also locks your loader in place

asa: its decent i guess its just long to me i like a nice tight little package close to me thats why i bought the drop and the on off is amazing for degassing the marker

body: the stock body is ok it does feel plasticy but it isnt its polymer the same thing glocks are made of and they are durable plus they have a nice selctio of colors and designs for the ion now

board: its love hate with the board i mean it has its moments where ill drop the thing and im swearing cause i think i broke it and it just powers right up and other times where i break the thing, iv had issues with the battery wire ripping but thats it, if you want an easier time adjusting it id go with an aftermarket board just not a blackheart they should have included that with the ion , the virtue is phnomanol

bolt: the stock bolt served its purpose and that was it, the thing is heaveir and slowed the gun down in my opionion, a fire bolt is lighter and cycles the gun while cunsuming less air, lowering the dwell and decreasing gas cunsumption

the qev: its not a needed part but it does help so much with air efficenty, with a qev and a firebolt installed you can drop the dwell considerably overall decreasing your gas cumsumption

thats basically it unless you want to hear about the grips which is mainly for looks iv noticed that while the virtue girps feel nicer it really doesnt do much seeing as i wear gloves
Conclusion: The ion is a great gun for the money it keeps up with high end guns without breaking your wallet
