View Full Version : Redz Ion or Mini????

02-01-2007, 02:35 PM
Okay, I recently looked at a Redz Ion at AV. I was wondering if this was a good deal at $349 dollers. It comes with a Redz Ion Body Kit, Trigger (I guess Redz I dunno), Ion Bolt, Cam-Lock feedneck, Pepper Stick, and ASA+Rail.
This is baisically everything I wanted to buy if I were to buy an Ion, plus a cool looking body.

I am also interested in the Invert Mini. Most of you know about the mini's so I wont go into detail. But I just wanted to know your oppinions on the two guns, and which would be better for me (Price is not a factor)

Id say the ion for you but not nessecarily the Redz. Id just buy a stock Ion and go online and look for different bodies. There are so many different bodies for the ion that its crazy. I guess if you really like the Redz Ion go with that over the mini

Well- I like the idea of the mini but I guess you'd have to wait until the problems get worked out.

I think the Redz ion sounds like a pretty sick deal, you get everything you need to turn the ion into a real competitor. Dunno the price of individual parts, but it sounds like a great deal, usually a body kit alone would be at least $100, and then you get at least another $100 worth of parts. Only thing I'd also buy would be a QEV.

Take a look here........ ANS ION $249. All aluminum body, custom trigger frame, and much more...

Lots up ups for a reasonable price. I bought a stock ion last summer and have been upping it piece by piece. This is a great deal.

I'm not sold on the Mini yet. I held on at a shop, it was damn light, nice and compact, but I didn't really like the way it felt.

If you decide to go with the ion get the one from barbspaintball, I've dealt with them in the past and they'll make ya the best deal around. With that said, the price difference b/t an up'd ion and mini is about $50 to $100 (unless your getting the epiphany, or however you spell it) and every where I've seen the mini its been out of stock. If you want to customize your marker, further than what it is coming with get the Ion, not alot of upgrade parts available for the mini. Although I'm curious to see how the mini performs I'd have to say that given your situation I'd get an Ion and personalize it.

I wouldnt go with either. Mini has too many problems at the moment and the redz ion is just a hyped up normal Ion.

I'd say a PMR/Promaster etc. Or find something good used for cheap. ;)
