Manufacturer DescriptionSubscribe to Reviews on this Product - Edit this Product Listing
Our most affordable marker ever. We're proud to have produced a paintball marker like no other. The Ion was built to be the marker for anyone who loves the game: simple to maintain, easy to use, designed for winning. It takes abuse like a rental gun, but throws paint with the best of them. You'll get the accuracy, range and rate of fire the Pro's enjoy for just a little more money than an entry level marker. The days of having to spend tons of cash to get what you want are over.

Our Features Presentation

� 17 balls per second semi-auto rate of fire with 3 shot burst, 10 bps full auto and our Rebound firing mode.

� Break-beam Vision Anti-Chop System Reliable and durable, the eyes are mounted on a separate board for perfect alignment and not affected by paint or body color. Just clean and replace (in minutes).

� A Featherweight Prizefighter At 2.2 pounds, the Ion is among the lightest high-end markers made, and it�s tube design imparts an ultra low profile.

� Reliability The Ion was engineered to stand up to the demands of professional players. It will outlast what used to be considered high-end and won't break down the minute you get it home.

� Improved Ball Detents Approximately 10 times the service life of current detents.

� Great Efficiency Expect a reliable 1000-1400 shots from a 68ci, 4500psi bottle without any modifications.

� Accuracy & Range The trademarks you expect from Smart Parts.

� Body Kits A first for paintball. High-quality aluminum internals are protected by composite shells, allowing you to instantly change the color or look of your body. Tired of blue? Switch to red. Or black. Or yellow. And there are more body styles in the works...

� Feed Tube with O-Ring Seals Fits a wider range of hoppers than most guns in this price range.

� Tools 1/8" Allen wrench is all you need for primary disassembly--and it�s included, along with trigger and velocity adjustment wrenches and a handy parts kit.

� Impulse Threads Take advantage of the barrels and feed tubes you may already have.
Product Availability 
The Smart Parts Ion is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.

Review: The Smart Parts Ion is a very reliable. If you take care of it, it will last you a very long time.

Me and one my friends went down to CJs paintball field and were about to leave bu we were gonna play just a few more games be for we left and he has an Indian Creak Design pro-master and his gun broke. He bought hes gun brand new with a new board new grips and everything else. But hes only had hes for a month and I have hade mine for about 6 months now and its still in top condition and have never broke or messed up one time. But when we were at CJs one of his gages and his gun kept maxing out, it maxed out 4 times between games and during games, so we had it looked at and the guy said it was his regulator and he needed a new one be for it messed up his gun.
An Ion is a very reliable gun and I love mine To death.
Conclusion: Its a great gun and its very reliable!!!

Upgrades:
OMG ALOT feedneck, asa, trigger, regulator, board, barrel, bolt, asa, macro line and fittings, grips, 360 qev, new bolt out back body,better breech, and trigger frame
Strengths: Somewhat cheap. Nothing really. Read the description. read description please
Weaknesses: TO many to tell here look at summary
Review: i bought this gun thinking it was a great back up gun. IT WAS THE BIGGEST MISTAKE EVER!! It is terribly unaccurte even with my freak kit and top grade paint. the macro line is very low quality and doesnt fit correctly. the asa adds about a inch and a half to your tank making you put the take over your shoulder. It leaks weekly. from the swivel, internals and many unpredictable places. the stock barrel make it even more unacurrate than it is with an upgrade barrel. the feedneck is as very tall and wont fit a higher end hopper. you will break the feedneck on your hopper. it is VERY loud!! It can be heard blocks away. the velocity drastically drops when shooting a about 8 bps. the reg is not anthing to be amezed about. the qev isnt good. the trigger is terrible!! i am currently using my 3 new stock trigger becase the get shot and break. or the magnet part breaks off, the metal shreads VERY EASY!! it shreded the meatal when i screwed it in! the feedneck shreds and ruins the threads when taken off
Conclusion: Not a gun that you want to have. it leaks and is made and desinged poorly.

Upgrades:
Ions Suck! The only thing you can do is take the whole thing apart and rebuild it. I hated mine. I bought it for $235 and sold it for $140
Strengths: Customizable. You Can School Someone With It That Has A DM4. Ha Ha ADD
Weaknesses: They dont have a good trigger. FREAK*N AIR HOGS!!
Review: That all I got to say. It isnt too good if your over 14 and a get 50 a month. Go out get an EPIPIHANY. And dont put the co2 tank on it newbies. Ions are ok if they are customized. Dont just screw a tank on it. Turn the reg down a bit of a crank
Conclusion: Buy if you and your brother Timmy are starting a 3 man team. DONT USE CO2 you newbs. I hate newbs that put a 12 oz. Co2 Tank on their ion or epip
