I personally don't have much experience with stock Ions... they don't look too good, but are a cheap alternative to the $1000 marker world if you want to shoot 15 BPS in a tourney~

The thing that sold me on the Ion is how upgradeable the marker is. This marker is the most upgradeable marker out there. My Ion does not have a single stock part anymore.

Overall, stock it is a cheap marker that will get the job done when needed, but when upgraded will perform well and look very good.

So I've had my ion for about a month now. So far no problems. This is a great gun and would recommend it to anyone on a low budget. The thing I like best about it is that you can make it "your" gun. The only bad thing though is that you have to get upgrades just to considerate decent. The stock trigger is ok but a clamping feed neck is a must!!!

This is my first paintball gun and I am so happy to have this gun! It looks really cool like a gun from an alien movie. I am great at aiming crappy old BB guns, but this really will help me on the field when I may need to aim. The trigger is extra sensitive. So much so that the gun almost seems like an automatic marker.

Me and my uncle had a match in the forest behind his backyard, so he shot me and I ran down by the water to hide and get a good shot, and I fell through the ice into the freezing cold water, the paintball gun is down in the water for a good minute at least. He pulls me out and quickly grabs my gun. He shoots it to test it out, and it shot out just fine. Extremely durable.

If u buy one i recomend to buy a new regulator or it will leak a lil' air. A rockking trigger. And most of all a clamp feedneck to keep the hopper low profile.
