There are still bob bodies for Ions floating around. Shocktech aluminum ones on ans, and the occasional Ion XE conversion pops up from time to time. I just found a nib conversion kit on Amazon. There's also a few upgrades available for Ions that aren't for the Extcy (yet). For instance, triggers.
Alright, so you think I will just be alright to stick with the Ion for now? And just be sure to be careful when dealing with the gun and also plenty of o-rings, etc? I already have a pinokio and a Ninja 68/4500 also. Just looking to get a decent marker for some rec ball.
