You could find a used ION for $100. Or build an after market one for under $200.

What are you currently running for a tank and hopper?

Yes get an HPA tank instead of your C02. Yes the Ion can work on C02 but nothing good will come of that in the long run.

Look into a HPA tank. Even if it's a steel 45/3000 or a 68/3000. Trust me on this if you're running an ION.

You say that like its a bad thing. I've played around with the new Electra, very nice and shot really smooth. Good luck with your ion though.

You get get a really used upped ion for under $200. I bought my first and last ion ebay, the guy propably had $500 in atleast and it went for under $170. It was the olderstyle prior to the xe (rear access to bolt). I really didn't care for the design maintainence wise so I sold it. I am not trying to bash sp I do happen own a shocker sft.

I don't have any personal experience with them, I've just heard that you have to spend a ton on updrades before it can really do any good and that there were a bunch of design errors.

Plus, why else would you see people selling them left and right? cause they don't want them ;) :p
