Should I upgrade my ION or buy a stock Shocker?

Ok, I have a stock ION. Should I get a new trigger, unimount, QEV, barrel, and grip, or should I buy a stock vision shocker?

I'd say Ion.
Too many issues with the shocker and having to relube it all the time.
Cheaper too!

The Ion and Imp are the smaller siblings of the family.

the ion w/ ups total is about $600 while the stock vision shocker is about $800... My mom doesn't says it's all a scam and the gun doesn't help so she is anti shocker because it means more money. But- i guess i should finance a shocker instead of getting the ups. Thx guys

Shockers are a ton better. Also sell your Ion to get the rest of the money or use as a back-up.

Id say up the ion. I think that the only sp gun w/ break beam is the ion.

I like dodgy

oh ok, my bad then. but the Ion couldnt be a more simple gun to maintain, troubleshoot, or use. the one and only thing i really cant stand about the Ion is the membrane on/off. if the sun is out, i have to shade the button with my hand to try and see the light flashing.

Octane Shocker-got to see one recently, its very nice and it uses cocker threads instead of those shocker threads, so you have more barrel selection. This guy was the biggest smart parts hater yet he got one and he was VERY pleased, hes even selling his eblade2 cocker.

Want to get an Ion myself.

dude if i were you i would save that money and sell your ion and get a proto matrix, cyborg or evil pimp imo it would be a better value. plus they are cheaper than the shocker.
