I need help with two issues on an Ion...

First off. Now that I have re assembled the gun I have realized the trigger is very soft. Not the distance I can change that, but the pull its self. The small spring(if you will) gold piece that shoots the trigger out is very soft. Is this replaceable? I did alot of work on the gun in the last few days I would rather not waste time on it if i do not need to.

Second. My eyes do not work. I am wondering if they are just dirty, or if I need a new pair. When I took the gun apart I found out why the eyes did not work...It was not even connected. So I reconnected them as I put it back together. When I turn the gun on it automatically goes to Eyes Off(Double blink) and when I try to change it to Eyes On(One blink) it just keeps blinking. Do I need new eyes?

I purchased this gun used from a good friend about a year ago. I never took the time to care about the eyes because I play recreationally. The gun has anywhere from 30,000 - 50,000+ paintballs shot through it. I have done 15 cases myself.

Any help is appreciated!

Also looking for a clamping feedneck for my Ion.

The spring I'm not sure on, perhaps someone else can field that one.

If it just keeps blinking, that means there's either something blocking the eyes (is your bolt forward?) or they're dirty. Try cleaning them and making sure there's nothing in the breech. If that doesn't work then they probably need to be replaced.

Feednecks, I'm a fan of the Q-Lock myself but it's all personal preference

look to see if your eye wires are pinched,its easy to do if youre not careful installing,trigger part on board is very soft,there isnt an easy way to adjust/replace it without soldering a new switch on it,best to adjust your trigger play outward some using the allen nut under the trigger guard,ive also seen a mod using a pen spring on the top hump of the trigger braced against the breech

that may work as it wouldn't be too tuff of a trigger pull...

Thank you.
