Epiphany is just an ion with a different frame, blackheart board, aluminum body, firing can inserts, firebolt, on/off asa, and freak barrel.

I would do that, or get a vibe or sp1. Te epiphany isnt really an upgrade over the ion.

2 schools of thought on this.

The epiphany is a better stock gun than the ion is. If you are buying new and the price difference is less than 50 bucks get the epiphany.

Build your own gun with used parts a save a lot of money while getting exactly what you want.

Epiphs do not come with the blackheart board...you can install the board in either. I liked my epihp over my sons Ion for many reasons, upgraded trigger, bolt, and the versitility to change the firing can adapters to get better performance out of it.
If you buy either you can make the upgrades necessary for speedball...qev a must along with a board and barrel upgrade. Do some research before you waste money on stuff that does not help or costs more than it's performance value. I liked mine, but have since then opted for an Ego...spent more money upgrading my SP markers than just getting a new Ego...live & learn.
