Well just finished installing the sling trigger on my ion. I gotta tell you...this is def the best trigger out there for the ion. I met people who always argue for the scythe, including one of my friends who has one, but i dont like the scythe half as much as this trigger. idk why...but the scyth to me had that same cheap feeling the stock did. Well, this trigger was a pain in the ass to install, but once i got it, i was absolutely impressed at how ez it was to walk. I loved the shape (my fingers naturally fit that shape) and therefore allowed me to shoot at my fastest speed. I have tried the rake before too, and loved it, but for me this was def. the shape i was looking for. This trigger when installed correctly has NO side-to-side play and doesn't bounce, which is a HUGE plus. The annodizing on it is great as well (got mine in polished blue to match my direct mount, gips and all other accessories). Well, the directions on how to install the trigger that came with it were horrible, so i used the online version with step by step pictures, thus making things easy. Make sure that if u are gonna use the online version you also read the one coming with the trigger because online they dont talk about the new adjustable screw and spring that are important in making this trigger its best (although i have heard of some people not using the spring, and using the microswitch to make the trigger came back to its original position)
Overall, this is the best trigger i have encountered for the ion. I definetely recommend it to anyone looking for an upgrade trigger for the ion. It feels strong, makes walking ez, and has no side-to-side play. Just make sure you install it correctly and u will be golden.

Well, having shot quite a few different triggers and Ion setups, this is by far the nicest trigger I have ever shot. If you get this thing installed correctly, there will be no side to side play and no bounce. I really like this trigger. Even on just Semi-Auto mode I can keep this thing going constantly at 17 BPS. It makes the gun look nicer, feel nicer, and makes it more easily walkable.
I would give this trigger a 10/10. Very comfortable, no side to side play, no slop and when adjusted right, no bounce. Overall I would recommend this product to anyone, and I mean anyone. If I were you and were looking for a trigger I would check this baby out!!!

This trigger rocks. its amazing! its super light, its walks very nice (a lot nicer than the stock ion trigger), very little side to side movement (not sloppy at all compared to the stock), it has a bearing in it instead of just plastic so its a ton smoother. this trigger looks sick. its awesome. i got mine at my local pro shop for 29 smacks, and took me 10 minutes or less to install. alos this trigger is made by CP so you know the quality is good.
buy it if u want a new trigger..this is the only trigger i would recommend. my friend has a new designs trigger and my CP is so much nicer. even he got one.
check it unimount

Hi guys! I just got back from the local field and it was the first time with my trigger! I didn't even use the stock trigger because of the magnets. I was just playing around with my gun seeing how easy it would be to shoot (my ion is new) and i said wow this is a really wierd setup. So I took it to the pro shop and found this nice piece of material!
I had fears at first about my ion because i never used electric guns before and thought it would be hard to walk/shoot fast because i have slow fingers but No worries! This is very easy to walk! Nice looking and quality in this piece of material.
I tried to tell you what ya want to hear
Don't waste your time on the crappy stock trigger! Get this now if you are even thinking!
Kila Reaction Detents
Well, I was waiting all day for this thing to come in the mail along with my detents, and when I opened it up, I was really excited. Came with all the parts needed, looked nice, everything was going great. First thing the instructions told me to do was to remove the stoc k trigger and 1/4" pre-travel adjustment screw and replace it with their provided "ball" screw. It doesn't tell you how to do this so it may be confusing, but all you have to do is remove the stock trigger, and screw this thing all the way out through the top of the trigger frame. Next part was where I started having some troubles...the instructions are kind of unclear on how to put the spacers in, and it's hard to tell which side of the spacers are tapered or not. You may just need to do some guess and check'ing to get your trigger to where it won't stick when screwed in all the way.
Other than installation, this trigger is very nice. It's very smooth when set up properly, is pretty adjustable, as much as the stock trigger, and has very little side to side play. If you have the patience to properly set this trigger up, it's a great addition to your marker!
Installation can be a little tedious and annoying, but once you get your trigger set up, it'll work great and be smooth as butter. I'd reccomend this to anyone who's looking for a trigger shape like this and wants something better than the stock trigger.
I'll give it a 9/10 only because the installation kind of annoyed me.

Very easy to walk it.
Instillation is tricky but all aftermarket triggers are.
I got this trigger a few months ago. It is so much easier to walk this trigger compared to the stock trigger. It takes little to no effort to get this trigger cooking. This trigger is metal and not just plastic and it has a new screw so you don't have to put the hammared out pin back in.
I would recomend this trigger to anyone who would like to be able to have a fast trigger with little resistence.

I received this trigger as a christmas present. I was happy that I got it because it was on my list. I installed it. WOrked great for about 20 pulls, then the pin became loose. I tightened the pin again and teh same ting happened. I realized that i installed teh spacers wrong. I correctly installed them. The same problem occured as before. The look and feel of this trigger is appealing but the design is horrible. Too many parts and it can be complicated and frustrating to get it to work. I would recommend looking into another trigger by another company. I am in the process of returning mine and purchasing a VP Sythe.
Decent looking trigger but a bad design. Many people have problems with this trigger. I would recommend the VP Sythe or the Killercarbon Trigger. Check here or arond pbnation for info on the two

Little side to side movement
So I got this trigger for my birthday recently. I was so excited because I had heard great things about it. I go up to my room to my pre-disassembled Ion and take the trigger out of the box.
I opened the instructions and began to read them. I hear a lot of people complain about the instructions. The truth is, as inconcise as they are, they are followable. So anyway, I read the directions and follow them carefully. 10 minutes later I have the trigger installed on my gun. I did, however, skip one step in the instructions. They call for the use of blue Loctite when putting in the adjustment screw. I thought it would be okay without it. Boy was I wrong
If you dont have any loctite, dont bother installing the trigger. You can set up the trigger any way you want, but as you walk it, the adjustment screw wiggles loose. You have to keep resetting it and resetting it. After I got some Loctite, Problem solved.
This trigger allows for the slowest of fingers to start ripping. No joke. When set properly, this trigger absolutely rips. I got called off the field the other day because the refs thought i was using full auto! My fingers are so slow. I can only shoot 13 or 14 bps with the blade trigger. Oh my God, this trigger rocks.
When tightened, the trigger has little to no side to side movement. I'm not really sure why people care about that so much, but you dont have to worry about it, lol.
Sexy. Drop. Dead. Sexy.
This trigger is a must have for anyone looking to increase their speed and the cosmetics of their gun.
Custom Products Sling Trigger
Evo2 with auto Z-Board
Excellent Magnetic Pull
Easy to walk and find a sweet spot.
I bought an Ion for $195 , along with some Virtue parts. After toying with this marker for a little while, I noticed a very big problem: the trigger. Although the stock trigger was ergonomically designed to feel good on your fingers (which it did), other aspects made it a dud. For example, the trigger pull feels like crap. Despite the nice shape of the trigger, it feels too much like plastic. The magnet was hard to work out, but once I got it going, I could never find the right spot to make it light as ice. Not only that, the trigger swayed from side to side, leading to inconsistent pulls. Lastly, I couldn't use the tips of my fingers to make it go. I had to walk this trigger the best I could with the middle of my fingers, making it very tiring after shooting long strings.
I got hooked up with this Custom Products trigger after taking a trip to my local paintball field. A roughly seven minute install got my marker up to perfection again. Although a spring is included in the "newer" models, there's no use in using it. After trying this new trigger for the first time, I felt like I was in heaven. This trigger glides so smooth, it's literally like butter. It's probably the best trigger I've ever fired. There's nothing defective about it. The trigger pull is so light, yet so snappy that I can rip like crazy because my fingers are moving so fast. There are multiple sweet spots, and it walks like there's no tomorrow. The trigger almost has a grippy feel too it, which takes a bit getting used to. The best thing about this trigger is that it looks great. It's probably the best looking trigger on the marker next to the Shocktech trigger.
Although technically you don't need the spring in the new models of this trigger, I ended up installing mine anyway after noticing a slight problem. Depending on how your magnet is set up, the trigger may get stuck near the frame with a light trigger pull. You need to apply some extra pressure to a non-spring installed CP Trigger to have it bounce back. However, it's slightly harder to walk with the tips of your fingers since it's pulling back now. I use the inside of the tips of my fingers so I have a little more control. Overall, its up to you.
A huge improvement over the stock trigger makes this a must. I've never shot a trigger so smooth before. Custom Products has pushed the bar up to the next level with the design and feel of this trigger.

Installation directions are unclear.
I had a lot of trouble deciding what trigger to get for my ion since there is a huge selection out there. When I decided on this one and got to try it, I couldn't have been happier. WIthout exaggeration this is the best trigger i've ever touched. I know how some people tend to become biased once they buy something, but im really not one of them. I've used my friends 05 Ego that has a star trigger on it, and strictly trigger wise i prefer this one (I'm not saying that my ion shot faster than his ego with this trigger on it im just saying that the trigger was faster). The instructions it comes with become unclear as to what to do with a black plastic spacer that is actually needed. After a long time of trial and error, I decided to go to the website which very clearly states how to install it. If you buy this trigger skip reading the directions it comes with and go right to the website. The trigger it shows is the other cp one, but it is installed exactly the same way. Right after I got done installing it and tweaking the magnet adjustments to my liking, I was amazed and greatly pleased with how fast it was. This trigger blows the stock one so far out of the water it isn't' even funny.
Only get this trigger if you want one of the fastest, best shaped triggers on the market.
