Is this ion stock? If so try throwing a new trigger on there. A new adjustable trigger will do wonders.

i say throw a trigger on their and get a qev (if you don't already have one) i love my upped ion. i am also looking into a new marker, like a pm7, pm6, or an etek. but i will keep my ion as a back up.

let us know what ups are in your marker. i think that you will get better help from the nation.

It is the fashionable thing to hate on ions these days which would lead you to ditch it for the wrong reasons. I personally bought an ion after a long absence from the game. As i got better i upgraded it to improve it s performance. After i felt i progressed passed the marker i bought a new one.

A new marker does indeed do alot, but if you arent at a stage where you are outperforming the old one than you really arent going to see much differance. Despite its taboos the Ion is a great reliable gun. I personally never had it once fail on me, and so i keep it as a backup.

Dont buy somthing for the wrong reasons.
Awesome advice

i thank you all for your advice. my ion has alot of upps. the only thing that isnt aftermarket is the frame. i would keep my ion until i get on a team, but the fact that if i dont sell my ion soon all the money i put into it will go to waste. i spent a pretty penny on my ion and i dont want that to go to waste.

for everyone who said to get a 05 ego or a pmr, the only reason i was leaning toward a shocker was so that i could keep my barrel and save me some $$$.

in the end i think that im going to sell my ion and get a nxt,
thanks alot everyone, i really appreciate it.

if you dont feel an absolute need for a new marker you dont need one.

ions arent as good as their new "cheap/high-end" couterparts. Sell your ion and save up some $ and you can get a good gun for really cheap, epiphany, mini, fusion, pmr and other old highends that have a lot of ups, the options are "vast" (lol, i always wanted to say that word)

the guy who is selling the 05 ego already has a deal that probably going to go threw so i dont think that ill get that. there is someone else who is selling a 06 ego. i dont want to seem like a noob with a ego so do you guys think i should get it or just wait and get a less expensive gun. he is selling it for 900$ but im trying to lower it a bit lol. for whoever has a 06 ego or dm6 or any high end gun, how long had you been playing when you got it?
