So I used to run fully upped Ion's back when it was smart parts, and was wondering if there is any additional reliability to the newer GOG guns? Particularly the ones with eyes and clamping feedneck "extacy" I think its called. I wanted to get one for one of my kids after they run a mechanical or pump for a year (to build their accuracy first) Just wanted some input from current owners. I never had any major issues with my Ions back in the day but they had like 300 worth of upgrades too.
In my opinion the eXTCy is what the ion should have been when it was first produced. The clamping feedneck, on/off asa, and blackheart board, with the price of $250 ensure that there is nothing that you have to upgrade to make your marker usable (ie: old ion feed necks, crappy board and asa). They even made the on/off button much easier to use. I have upped mine over a couple of months, but it shoots great stock.
I have been using mine for over a year and still love it. I use my eXTCy as much as I use my ego or axe because it is such a good shooter. GOG made the eXTCy what the ion should have been, and put it within the price range so anyone can afford it. With all of this said, I have had great experiences with GOG's customer support as well. You can't go wrong with this marker as a beginner pneumatic. I still use mine all the time.

Hell yea, thats what I was hoping people would say about them.
Thanks for your time and consideration fella's!
Ball on and have a great weekend out there.
I can't wait to get back home and start balling it up again. I miss my field and team and regular players that I used to see every weekend.
Defending this country aint easy but at least it funds my love of the game.
