The S.I.T.H. Tactical ION Body is a cinch to install onto the ION and the holes on the bottom are plenty larger enough to use qev's with out modification to the body. The sight rails are perfect for all your attachment needs. The body is also sweet looking.
Buy this body if you want a practical and styling body. Also if you love scenario or woods ball. I give it a 9 only because the plating is not real durable.
J&J Ceramic 14" Barrel
Allows attachment of accessories to the rails.
Makes gun a touch heavier, I think.
For those of us paintballers that don't like fruity colored paintball guns, this is a breath of fresh air. Many of the newer electric guns aren't really geared toward either the functionality or look of playing paintball in the woods. The SITH body for the Ion really puts the Ion at the forefront of tactical style guns for the woods. The body allows various accessories, whether they be flashlights, sights, lasers,etc... to be mounted easily and quickly. The screw in back panel is great because you can use an Tippmann 98 stock, or, use the supplied hole to attach a multipoint harness. Not only is the body functional, but looks great. The dust black coating reduces the chance of glare/reflection, and it just makes the gun feel sturdier, as it's made of machined aluminum. I haven't weighed them, but the aluminum, I assume, would make the gun a bit heavier, but not by much. I'm talking a few ounces if that. All in all, a great addition to the Ion.
As an aside, the people at Hotshots were great to work with, very nice.
Great body for either the woods player, or the speedballer who wants something different. Definately not Tactical Pink.
This body was rather sweet looking to the eye, it just has a rugged look to it.
The use of an attachable stock gave a good feel to the gun. The Stock Ion body just looks cheap, but this gives a much more solid feel to the marker, and most importantly provides function over form design...
Its color choices are black and olive dust. This product was designed for woods play, plain and simple. It was made for the Milsim crowd, although some speedballers may like it as well.
If you are looking for a functional Body to replace the stock Ion body, then this is truly the way to go. It provides a modular system for stocks, sights, etc. for your Ion. Especially for all Millsim Ion owners... Go get this.. youwill not be disapointed.
