Manufacturer DescriptionSubscribe to Reviews on this Product - Edit this Product Listing
The new Smart Parts Epiphany builds on the world-class, field-proven performance of the Ion. With new features and improved consistency, it is set to take a new, intermediate-level position in the Smart Parts marker line.

Smart Parts re-wrote the book on entry-level markers when it released the Ion. Never before could players get the blistering performance of a true electro pneumatic while only facing an entry-level price tag. The Epiphany is the next evolutionary step forward for the Ion design concept.

The heart of the Epiphany is a paintball first � an adjustable volume fire chamber. Color-coded inserts are used to alter the amount of gas the Epiphany stores in its fire chamber. This flexibility allows the Epiphany fire chamber volume to be reduced while maintaining full velocity. With a smaller fire chamber, the Epiphany valve can recharge faster, protecting it from shoot-down or undesired velocity fluctuations when the player is shooting 15 or more rounds per second.

Built on the solid foundation of Smart Parts Ion technology, the Epiphany brings new features to the player � features not found in many "high end" paintball guns, let alone those that can come anywhere close to the Epiphany's price tag. The new features include:

Adjustable volume fire chamber for velocity stability at high rates of fire
All-metal body, feedneck and grip frame construction
Super-light, fast-acting bolt
Enhanced solenoid valve
Super-light magnesium alloy body, grip frame and trigger
Conical trigger bearing which eliminates side to side trigger slop
Break-beam Vision anti-chop technology
Interchangeable bore barrel � standard
Ergonomically designed trigger frame built to be walked
Three-point trigger adjustment
Integrated air rail
Rail-mounted on/off ASA
High level of Ion compatibility
The last feature on the list should be one of the most prominent. Many Epiphany assemblies can be interchanged with Ion parts. Epiphany owners can make use of many existing aftermarket accessories, and Ion owners can upgrade to Epiphany-level performance. Providing continued value to our customers is natural, because we believe that equipment counts.
Product Availability 
The Smart Parts Epiphany is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.

Review: The Smart Parts Epiphany is a beautiful gun, not only is it accurate the speed of the gun is fast and easy that anyone can use this gun! There are some guns that say they have a high BPS but isn't easily reached, the Epiphany with three different firing modes, can be used by anyone with or without experience.
Conclusion: The gun is affordable, it takes a lot of Ion parts and comes with a Freak Jr. Barrel, nice trigger that can be adjusted to user's likings, and on/off ASA.

Pros:
Fast
Accurate
Looks nice
Easy to Clean

Cons:
Feed Neck can easily be replaced.

Review: I bought my epiphany back in march 07 as my first gun getting back into paintball after a short break. I really liked the look of the gun and the price at the time seemed to fit the quality of the marker. When I took it out to play at the field. wasn't really impressed with the speed of the gun. At the time i thought nothing of flow problems and only that this is what you get for 400 bucks. However after a month or so I notices that the reg was maxing out and that I had major air flow problems and leaks coming from the rear component. On top of that, all of the rubber highlights on the body and reg had peeled off. So i sent to gun back to the company to be fixed. 1 month later the gun comes back with a new body and reg grip and it looks great...they forgot to fixed my leak though. Even though they told me that they leak test everything when they get the gun. Again I sent it away to the company and waited 5 weeks this time for it to come back. Finally i was going to be able to shoot my gun...or so I thought. They had again done a great job on the body, giving me a new designed grip frame and they fixed the leaking, but now a crucial screw hole had been cracked open and the screw was just left there to jiggle around while i played. (This is the screw that connects the grip fram and reg to the body)
Conclusion: In conclusion I am very disappointed is the marker and in the company for just somehow being able to make more problems out of smaller ones.

Review: I use my sponsors gun's for back up and recently i used their epiphany. it was decent, the main weakness was that it had an ion reputation. After i played with it thought, people were in love with it. Its a good gun, but i would reccomend a DM5 over it any day.
Conclusion: Decent, but u have to ROCK with it in order to live down the ion reputation.
