Each of my ion develop a different leak problem.. so after fixing them, i unload them on ebay. It's not a bad gun, just prone to leaks some how. I never chop a ball or had any bad firing issue.. just leaks ! I'm a big smart part fan also, so im just sticking with my shockers and minis.
a properly maintained ion won't leak anymore than anoy other gun. Lubricate it, clean it and change the orings when necessary and your ion will be leak free.
