Walkable mechanical Ion

well its finished, my project vespa. My goal achieved: a walkable mechanical ion.
Ive built mech Ions in the past and i was always dissatisfied with how the triggers were so i set out to make the lightest trigger possible.

parts used:
clippard QEVs
SMAV-3 3 way
MSV-2 shuttle valve
MPA-3 actuator
Jackhammer 2 LPR
Stinger Grips
JBweld (yeah yeah i know... )

first off, the stock ion.... Ewww ugly and broken QEV in the body


so i got the trigger assembly together, i know that i could have just used the one valve and no lpr, but keeping the pressure that low really lightens the pull. MSV-2 trips the actuator and the actuator...uhh... actuates the SMAV-3


Here it is with a fresh coat of spray paint, and the LPR installed. I tried drilling and tapping but I FUBAR'd it so out came the JB weld again


here are the grips from Stinger, I cant say enough about the quality of work that these guys do!


Here is the finished project with a new trigger and feedneck


any questions? please ask!

Personally, I dig the colors! Although I play in highlighter yellow gear.. But congrats on the finished build and accomplished goal! Can't even tell where you used JB weld either.

1: in person you can tell
2: in places where it shouldnt be... like holding the LPR and marco line on, or holding the actuator and the smav-3 together...

only time will tell how long it'll hold together

That is awesome man, all I noticed was the grips and just skipped the rest of the thread.

I actually found that putting a small zip ties on the LPR hose and using it to hold that to the marco line works really well. oddly enough none of the hoses are in the way.
