I've made $65 in 2 days. It's not hard to sell the stock parts. SO many people have IONs and the parts are in high demand.

PMR is garbage compared to how my ION is right now. I will defend that to the death too.

Ion's are durable. I've owned 2 or 3...all reliable. Wow a plastic shell covering parts. It makes it such a bad gun.
