IMO. SP made a great gun. i didnt like the idea at first but was un-educated about them. millions sold and parts and ups were rampant. Lucky closed. SP closed and this was the demise of ions. The bottom fell out on selling them. Just like some other manufacturers. Thus making them unwanted by the crowds. Now finding parts is easy and hard. Depending on what your looking for. If SP was still open this question would have completely answers.
