A drop in assembly for the Smart Parts Ion Paintball Gun. Allows air venting at the QEV instead of routing it back through the solenoid. This allows quicker cycles while being able to lower your dwell.
Increases cycle rates
Allows user to decrease either dwell or input pressure or in most cases both
This QEV does not require any body mods, simply install it
Includes quick disconnect fitting and hose
The New Designz Ion QEV Kit is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
just the stock banjo fitting o the ion. the qev made a noticeable difference on my ion the first time i shot it.
q lock feed neck
dead on drop forward
68 4500 nitro tank
Incredibley easy to install
No instructions but once you understand it was easy to install.
I bought it online as soon as i got it i installed it and shot some paint and it cycled way faster then before. I play mostly woods ball and speed ball and it helps dramaticly. I can even get about another full pod out of my 68 4500 tank. Aesome product. Buy it now!
Buy it now for your ion it is the cheapest and best upgrade you can buy.

Halo TSA backman
SP Firebolt in the future?
Does what it says, makes it cycle faster at lower PSI and dwell
No instuctions......luckily i found a video showing how.
This QEV came with my gun in a kit(not installed) first i shot without it, then i installed it. With the Stock banjo bole, and at 180psi, with the stock dwell at 52, i shot a good 280fps. Put the QEV in and then shot it(without tuning) and i was shooting 310FPS. Whoops. Turned down my reg pressure to 120psi and my dwell down to 30 and im shooting a good 290fps(should be lower tho)
A must have for Ion owners. You will like the fact that u got it.

I got this along with my tboard, and this thing rips. I put it into ramping, and man, crazy fast. This also helps out if you have a stock board by acting as a grease trap so you dont have to clean out your 'noid. Good thing indeed! Well, i got 50 worded, so here it goes. I suggest getting a tboard and an L6 bolt after this QEV cuz they rock socks. Then you will see the ion's true capabilities.
It does what it is supposed to, and doesn't have anything wrong with it, so why not give it a 10?

more shots per tank
If overtightened it can leak.
My friend told me that i needed a qev so i said what the heck and bought one at the local pb shop. After i installed it i did notice improved performance. I got more shots per tank and it lowered my dwell considerably.I have heard of a few people having problems with this product such as leaking, but that is due to over tightening and stripping the threads. Also it could be due to the hose but unlikely. Whenever you install the qev don't get in a mad rush and screw it up. If you do then try using some sort of sealing tape or other sealing product.

-No body mods.
Haven't found any yet.
I installed this part about a month after I recieved my Ion. The stock Ion dwell is at about 52 blinks from the bottom. After the install f the NDZ QEV I was able to drop my dwell to 8 blinks rom the bottom. The with the QEV installed there is definatly less air consumption although I cannot be specific on shot counts. A higher rate of fire is much easier to acheive.
-Overall a great product

Quickend the shots maybe 1-2
ok so i had just gotten my ion and shot it completely stock and was pretty happy. Then i made the mistake of going to the paintball shop with money. and ended up spending 148.00 on 3 upgrades and a barrel. The Nd Qev quickened my shooting up 1-2 maybe 3 balls per second which in some peoples eyes isn't much but i want anything the helps. Very good construction and real easy to put in.
Very good over all not a lot of shots added. you probaly won't notice it unless you pay very close attention.

All right i got this part and thought how good is this part it was great and also easy to install you dont have to be a rocket scientist to figure it out when i had shot paint through it after i put it inthe gun it perfromed fawlessly great product you should buy it.
Rasta Fade Ion w/ Silver ND Feedtube & Blade Trigger
None that I can think of
Well I bought this because I wanted to lower my dwell and get my shots per fill. Although the QEV says on the side that is Clippard so there really isn't any difference between the others. I have my dwell set at 8 and my OP is at about 140 and im shooting 295.
Great product. Cycles faster, lowers dwell & OP. And its only 18 bucks.
blue ion, cp rolling trigger, cp short reg, new designs qev, egg 2 zboard, 91/4500 dye throttle
Lowers dwell; 8-10 clicks
Lowers pressure; 120
Figure it out; saves air
Little louder kinda like a pop with each shot
well I just put the the cp reg, trigger, and this qev today and we tested it startin with the dwell at 0, we went up to about 8 honestly and its shooting at 120 psi perfect with no shootdown at 17 bps ramping. when i actually chrono the gun i'll see what this setup will do since i didn't take my barrel and hopper to the paintball store. the update should be up by this weekend.
UPDATE: 5 days after I bought these parts I chronoed my gun and around a lil lower then 140 psi, i'm shooting 285,285,287,284,285. My dwell was highered a lil more to like 10 and ramping at 17bps with the egg 2 z-boarded i have absolutely no shootdown, this can be thanked by the cp reg since the stock reg has a lot of shootdown. anyways I should be gettin the orange bolt this week so i'll have another update after I get it and have it chronoed with the bolt.
Well lowering your dwell from stock to 8-10 and psi to 120 is enough for me. but then again remember it wasn't jus the qev that did this, the cp reg did most of the work. my advice either buy this qev with a good reg since theres no difference that the air soldier one. they're pretty much the same n the other ones already got good reviews. for 20 bucks you cant beat it. i give it a 9 for now but honestly i dont know what this will do for you just with the qev on a stock ion. sry UPDATE: chronoed 285 at lil lower then 140 psi, giving this a 10 now that i know what it can do.

This is always agood upgrade to get for your Ion, if you have an Ion I reccomend that you get a QEV Kit.
Ofcourse with the Ion a new neck, and a barrel should come first, but the QEV Kit is a faily important upgrade that should be considered for all Ion owners
