Review: I've been playing with my Ion since it first came out, about 3 years ago, and it has been my favorite among all of the markers that I have used. The main weakness to the Ion is the cleaning of it, particularly the constant disassembly. In order to even access the bolt, you need to remove the battery, 3 body screws, undo 3 banjo fittings (or 2 and a QEV), pull the entire board out, take off the eye harness, and unscrew the breech from the firing can. Then, and only then, can you reach your bolt. With this kit, you never have to do ANY of this, at least after the installation. The installation is pretty simple, just replacing parts, no cutting or anything. There are even helpful videos on Techt's site. After you're all done, all you have to do is unscrew the back cap, push from the other end (straight shot squeegee works best for this imo), and it all comes out. It can be a bit tricky to get used to putting it back in, but once you get it, you're golden.
Conclusion: Excellent quality kit, looks great, makes your life MUCH easier. Saves you time and frustration (as well as wear and tear on your body screws). Probably the best part of this is not having to mess with the QEV every time you want to clean and relube (which I do every week, I know, I can't help it). I'd give it a 10/10, but nothing is perfect, and the price and learning curve of this product keep it from perfect, but this is still a VERY, VERY good product. I highly recommend it!
