first upgrades you would get

i am thinking about getting an ion and wondering what upgrades would you get right away. Also, what upgrades could i buy to make the gun leake less, i have heard many stories about peoples ions leaking and had a friend who's ion leaked.

if the ion is maintained properly, it will not leak.

also, first upgrades should be to get comfortable with the marker.

shoot alot of paint through it, then decide what YOU need. not everyone has the same upgrade path.

first upgrade should always be the feed neck the stock one is horrible. other than that as stated above shoot it and figure out what you do not like and change it.

Yep, the Q-Lock feedneck should be the number #1 choice for a first upgrade. Second I would go with an ASA with On/Off.

First upgrade you should get is a full fill in your bottle and some paint, shoot it, then decide what you don't like.

As for parts, I would get:

1.) hose kit
2.) oring kit
3.) 1 each of the 2 banjo's in the Ion

This would be your best upgrade, because as you add parts later, one of these is bound to fail and a parts kit should always be your first upgrade
