I named her Trixie. The gun case is kind of overkill for a not so expensive gun, but it was on clearance at ****s for 25$, so I figured what the hell.

Naming her trixie would kind of fool people to thinking it was a DM6 or PM6, don't you think?

Why is that? (sorry, still fairly new to pb) I got the name Trixie from a zombie movie.

Ya it would.Trix is what they call them. But that's even better! "I'm goin to shoot you with my trix". Then after the game be like I shoot you with my trixs and they think they got shot with a DM and then show them the ion. They'll be ashamed:D

Bah. Do you know how long it took me to think of that name? More time than I'll admit lol. On a side note, I never realized how small the on/off button was in pics. That thing is tiny.

Sure he meant $250, no place would have them on clearance for $25, if that was the case give me their number and i'm buying like 8 of them

opterasis
08-22-2006, 12:41 PM
No, I think I'm going to find a new name that's zombie movie related. It's an odd little obsession of mine, in case you didn't notice.

No can do. I have to avoid naming it the same as any exes, or the g/f will nag me about it to no end.

co2 ftmfl

Don't worry, CO2 will never touch the Ion. The CO2 tank is in the pic because I had my Xtra sitting in the case until the Ion came in.

Oh, I know I will. The crappy part is I won't be able to order a tank till next week.

I did notice the trigger is weak sauce though. First upgrade will be the VP scythe.

I ordered my first upgrade the other day, a new QEV. I know, it's nothing big, but everyone told me its the first thing I should get. I'm trying to track down a VP scythe trigger. let's just say thats proving to be difficult. After that, I think I'm going with a lucky 1-2-3 kit.

getting ready to put in my Stage 2 and 3 to go with the Stage 1 bolt already in.

I'll post up my thoughts after I tune Sara and get some testing done.

Good job on the QEV... IMO it should be the first upgrade on any Ion.

Well it's going to take me a while, but she should be quite bad ass by November. I'll deffinately be updating this thread along the way though for those that are interested in a noob upgrading his gun :D

Well my QEV came in today. Lets just say it was a very unpleasant experience for my first time taking apart my ion. while installing the QEV, I lubed up the bolt, and replaced the seal backwards, so gas leaked, and none of the screws lined up properly with the trigger frame. After about an hour of almost peeing my pants because I thought I broke my 2 week old gun, I got it all figured out, and now it works perfectly ;)

Glad everything is working out with you. We learn from our mistakes and now you can problem tear apart that gun and put it back together in no time. Its part of paintball, we've all done it.

opterasis

Yeah, it's always tough that first time taking something apart, but now I have to say I know that gun pretty damn well now. I forgot to mention, I accidently tore out a wire for the eyes. Bah, oh well, when I order my lucky stage kit soon, I'll just add those to the order.

Question about that circle metal part holding the donut onto the firing chamber... do I need some special tool to get that off? I didn't play with it much, but it seems like it would be pretty difficult to get off.
