SP-8, lucky stages 1,2,3 , powerlyte scepter kit
Clean, simple, easy to install
Not designed specifically for the SP-8
The rear donut is a simple design that has a userfriendly purpose. It replaces the stock rear donut and make disassembly easy.
******For SP-8 owners********
If you have an SP-8 and wish to use the Lucky Stage 3 rear donut, you WILL have to do some body modifications. The stock SP-8 rear dount has 3 flat sides however the stock Ion has only 1 flat side. The lucky stage 3 was designed off the Ion stock rear donut. If you want to use stage 3 on your SP-8 you will have to cut some plastic from the rear portion of your body. This cut will be covered by the rear cap of the SP-8 and it will not hurt the actualy marker at all. If you need pictures of what I did, please pm me your email and I will send you some.
Over all this is a simple but effective upgrade. It makes working on the marker simple in my opininion. I wouldn't buy it on its own but with stages 1 & 2 it is a no brainer.
see review, got a 9 because I had to mod the body.
When i went to put this on i relised how hard it is to take off the clip, but was very joyfull when i found out u dont need a clip u just slide it on put your gun together and go play. i recemend it if something happens to the stock donut but one thing is the colors are pointless becouse u cant see them unless you cut the body and i didnt want to do that becouse i already cut it for the qev and i didnt want it to fall apart. Also lets you lower the dwell a little about 1 or 2 clicks.
Easy to install but u dont really need it.

None, really. Only guy that I know that makes these things.
Smart Parts Ion
14 inch CP 2 piece barrel
Smart Parts Q-Lock
Lucky Stage 1 Bolt
Lucky Stage 2 Firing Chamber
Lukcy Stage 3 Rear Donut
4 set screws
None that I know of
I bought it the 2nd or 3rd day these things came out. I know lucky, and I know that this stuff goes quick. So I bought the Donut and the trigger pin together, saving on shipping. They came within a week, not bad for across the country. Props to Lucky and UPS.
The install was easy enough, take off the old one (difficult if you don't have a C-Clip remover or alot of patience. Or, if you haven't done had to remove it before.) Personally, I hate C-Clips. I think they're a huge pain in the butt. So the idea of having 4 set screws is WONDERFUL. Just put the donut on, use your allen wrench that you already have in your Ion kit, and away you go.
So, past that, perfomance. There might be a small increase in performance, but its hard to tell right now, with the capped board. With all my ups, I am currently running a 15 dwell and a 120 PSI, 285 fps. Way better than stock.
As far as look are concerned, the anno job is amazing. Awesome color. I got blue. I also chopped off the back of my body so you can see the firing chamber and donut. I also learned that this has so air-flow benefits as well. Try it and you'll see what I mean.
Great product. It looks awesome, and overall will help your marker perform its best. I can't wait to see the rest of Lucky's products.
