all the other companies who didn't sue everyone else out of business?

sure you can or can't do it and it is legal, but it's still trashy business practices and hurts the industry, i'm mainly pissed that they ran AGD out of the market.

the ion is a great marker. But I just hate how you have to take the whole marker apart to clean it

i dont know if Ion is great but i only shot it after reading this hate on Ions for like 2 years, when i was about to shot it i was like omg that must be crap and it shoot quite well, i dont know becouse it is really good or becouse lots of people said it was **** and i thought it would shot much worst. btw i would recomend it for anyone whos starting on speedball scene, with older egos and dms, it is good choice!

You can recommend it, but don't recommend upgrading it. No matter how many ups are on an ion, it's still an ion and it has almost no resale. So money that could be put on upgrades should go to other gear, or saving for a new marker

no product in this world will have theyr price add if it is upgraded, it happens on Cars too.
Ion is ok to start, but dont make sense spending money on a Ion and other Ion value to upgrade your Ion.

Some ups are necessary on some guns but adding value is what the buyer sees is worth it

the only reason to change from a stock barrel is because the bore on the stock is too large (often) or you prefer a different length.

I notice the weight of the stiffi tip vs my AA tip on my semi guns and how the accuracy seems better on the DW vs my CCM barrel on my T2
