I'm not one of the experts, so maybe they will correct me, but...

If it is an 09, I believe the ion threads should still work, unless they did something different to the pilots than the electras.

As to how to figure it out, do you have an adjustable feedneck, or does it require an adapter? If it has the screw collar, then it is an 09.

Go to page 16.
The 08 required the straight elbow to fit a standard hopper.

That may not be the proper term, but kinda like you have on the elbow, where you have to adjust the screw to get the hopper on. If you look at that link and the breakdown, you can see that there is a collar that goes around the feedneck on 09's.

I wish I could tell you for sure. But I can't, I know a 09 has a different thread for its feed neck.

You air up your marker, strap on the mask, and walk onto the field.. it doesn't matter that you failed that test, that your girlfriend broke up with you, or that you got a ticket on the way there... your world is right for the next couple hours,... this is your heaven on earth.. live it.. love it.. play it.. Paintball.

98% percent of ballers wipe, if your part of the 2% that has some sense of honor add this to your sig

We're thinking his is an 08, though. Did yours require a straight elbow beforehand?
