-Still has some side to side
-Long Pull (even with set screw set)
I'm not sure what I was going to expect when ordering this particular trigger. I've always liked the look of the sling triggers, but didn't know if I would particularly enjoy the actual design when walking. So I took the chance and ordered one. First off, let me say that this is not a bad design at all...just not the best for my style of play, or rather feel of comfort. I believe I'm more partial to the more flat designs...I've played with an E2 on an autococker for years, so I'm a little more comfortable with similar designs...but hey, it was worth a try at only $30.
So let me get on with this review...
First off, the design is exceptional! This is a great looking trigger...it makes your Ion look like it's hauling balls, when all it's doing is sitting, looking great on your couch! Very nice asthetics!
Secondly, it installs very easily...about the only problem I may have ran into, was installing the spring...a little convuluted, but otherwise, not as bad as others will make it out to be. Tweazers may come in hand.
Okay, now for my downsides:
-Trigger pull is extremely long! Sorry if that doesn't sound right, but when it's mounted on my ion, with the trigger pull set screw fully in place, it pulls WAY to far for my tastes.
-Insane clicking. I guess I'm not going to get anywhere else by installing a different trigger, but with each pull the set screw clicks against the frame, and if you release quickly, the trigger itself clicks against the frame on the return..so you get a lot of noisy "Clickty-clack-clickity-clack-......."
-Still a little side to side play..I will say though, that it's barely noticiable.
Not a bad little trigger, just not suited for my particular tastes..but I won't knock it simply on those terms. This review is for those that like the look and feel, and are wondering if this is a good product. Yes and no. Keep an eye out for other brands. If you get a chance to walk some of them, do by all means. The CP isn't a horrible choice, but there just might be a better sling out there.
A good solid choice of trigger for your Ion. Make sure it's the style you want, and not just because it looks good. There are a few details that kind of bring this upgrade down a few notches, but overall it's a great product. I recommend it for those seeking a sling style trigger...other's might look around awhile before settling on this particular mod.
Smart Parts Ion
cp custom sling trigger
Evolution 2 hopper
pepperstick 2 piece barrel
sooooo easy to walk
Instructions for instulation suck!
Trigger is awesome and I would recommend it to anyone wanting to upgrade their Smart Parts Ion. The trigger is only 29 dollars and its worth every penny. Make sure when it tells you to remove the adjustable screw you remove it through the top of the gun. If you don't the allen wrench will strip.
This is an awesome trigger but quite difficult to install because the instructions suck!
CP Sling Blade
Dye sticky 3
None that Ive experienced.
Very good trigger..period. Light and consistent.. Excellent buy. Its an extremely awesome trigger, my favorite ever shot. It has very little side to side movement and is well worth the money. A+ for CP
-Excellent Roller Bearings
-Not too hard to install.
-CP has excellent customer service if you ever need to replace a part
-Definate increase in rate of fire
-Adjusts easily to "light as a feather" trigger pull
Bottomline, Very Nice Product!
Buy this, beats the hell out of the stock trigger.

This trigger is amazing. I first tested it on my friends ion and loved it, so I had to get it. It looks awesome on my ion and it feels like such a perfect fit. There is no side to side movement and there is no flimsy feeling like the stock trigger. Its very easy to adjust and its design makes walking the trigger a breeze. I can shoot significantly faster than I could with the stock trigger, and with less effort.
The only thing is that due to the vibrations of the gun firing, the trigger will loosen from where you adjust it to. This is a minor issue and can't really be considered a problem because you can adjust it back anytime you want. If you find this a hassle I would recommend finding the perfect spot and using some blue loctite on it.

Walks VERY easy
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.

Hard to install
I got the trigger for Christmas and was pretty happy because it was something I asked for and was made by a good brand. I tried to install it but i decided to take it to the local paintball field. The pro there put it in and it took him 1 hour. It is a great trigger and it doesn't rock.

Great part, makes a big difference over the stock parts. It just a trigger ut for me, it helps shoot faster. For the price, its a good looking part that improves the feel of the gun. If you have an ion and want a upgrade that provides both a better look and performance, get this trigger. Its a trigger, not to much to say...(but nothing gets a 10)
Great part, get it!
