From what I understand this was a case of several companies/stores buying up big lots of Ion parts from the auction of SP's stuff during the bankruptcy and then getting them up and running with GOG filling in the blanks for the parts they didn't have. Not an official statement or anything but that's what I've heard.

Still, as much as people love to hate on the Ion, $164 for a new one is still a helluva deal and it's a great entry to mid-level marker.

How strange - when this marker was first posted on ANSgear it said that G.O.G. was handling all warranty claims - now thats been edited to say that the "manufacturer warranty applies" lol.

If that's true, why didn't they give it a clamping feedneck and a decent barrel? Doesn't the frame need to have different milling in order to replace the sticker on/off with the button it now has?
I don't see this as Compulsive trying to clear off the shelfs, I see it as a slightly improved marker coming back on the market. And I'm actually happy, I like to see Ion project markers

I hope they replaced the solenoid with the one from the SP1/Vibe. It looks like they've kept the same board though, so I'm guessing they kept all of the internals as well.

Smart Parts is a trademark. The Gardner's own the rights to use the trademarks, such as Freak, Smart Parts and so on. Kee actually owns the names and also owns the patents that were previously owned by Smart Parts, Inc.

What you see with the "Ion 2.0" is the large online stores bought up excess Ion parts when the company sold off all of it's assets a few years ago. These companies supplemented the parts that were not available with new GOG parts. These are not "official" GOG or Smart Parts guns in the sense that it's being mass produced by the company.

Currently, the only markers that GOG is producing is the G-1, eNVy and eXTCy.

They have never done the "yearly" release of new markers. The SFT Shocker was the gun for 4-5 years, they then released the NXT Shocker with updates from the SFT in 2007. Same goes with the Ion and Ion XE. There was never a 2008 Shocker, 2009 Shocker and so on..

Just an FYI, you will be paying for the parts if something needs to be replaced/fixed.

These guns were bought from Adam at GOG and the warranty is through them.

GOG Paintball works for a Paintball manufacturer
There is a lot of speculation regarding the Ion 2 currently being sold by ANS.
ANS acquired the remaining inventory of ION's from Smart Parts. They contracted with GoG to test and provide the standard manufacturer's warranty for these markers. Anyone who purchases an ION 2 will be eligible for warranty coverage as long as they can provide proof of purchase and are within the term of the warranty coverage. There is a very limited supply of these markers so anyone who loved the ION and wants to own a piece of history should not hesitate to purchase one.

As a side note, GoG can fix or repair almost any of the previous Smart Parts markers. We charge for parts, labor and return freight. Anyone who needs help can contact GoG through the support section of the GoG website.

My buddy picked up a used Ion to use as a spare in case one of our Axes went down. $40. The thing is fun as hell, the trigger bounces like CRAZY (like, 18bps type crazy) and it's louder than an Etek.

We let rentals use it sometimes, their faces are hilarious after one game with it.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
