ion BLOWS rear of body OFF

Ok here is what happened. Playing today and dudes dragon takes a dump on him so I hook him up with my ion. His halo and the tank and barrel was mine.Getting the 10 sec. count down and GO GO GO and dude makes first bunker and readys to shot. Well pulls the trigger and the rear part of the stock body blows past his head. I mean I think I can fit a nickel in the opening. Now we my team and I have all used this gun with no probs. What the heck happened??? It hit 290 at the chrono so everything was fine til that first shot on the field. This ion is all stock so there is no worries about ups not working together. I will get pics in the morning and any help will be great. Oh yeah air is leaking out the back ofcourse. Thanks

actually, ive actually heard of this happening before
im not real sure how, but did the bolt come out the rear donut and break it?
i think thats what happened to the other guy, but my memory of that is jarred and i have a feeling thats not really possible

im tired and my mind is screwing with me

Sounds like something that happened to a guy I play with. I wasn't around when it happened, but from what I've been told part of the bolt he was using was carbon fiber. It came apart on him and blew out the back of the gun.

I call BS. Post up or shut up in this case....

The size of a nickel huh. Well, theres really no part that size in the rar of the ion that ould actually shoot out except the bolt (which would have to go through the firing chamber first) and the rear banjo (which would have to somehow go up and out the back). The rear donut is larger than a nickel so thats not really gona happen. Lastly, i dont think theres really enough pressure in an ion to do that. MAybe if the part had some space to gain speed first but i doubt simple stress from pressure on the shell would do that.

Couple things ...

1. Stock body ... nothing about it is sealed to hold pressure that would end in something blowing apart. If there was a large fast air dump it would vent.

2. The hole in the rear donut isnt large enough to allow the bolt to pass through, nor would it be traveling fast enough to break the shell.

have someone punch you in the eye really hard. maybe a few times to ensure it looks bad. Make sure to erase this post then make one saying the piece flew off and hit you in the eye while you were tuning your marker.

this accomplishes 2 things:

1. You could sue SP for millions (I get 10% for comng up with the idea).

2. Or.... if you are lying, which everyone so far seems to believe, then we all get the satisfaction of seeing you with your eye swelled shut, which you deserve for making this crap up.
