Is there a way to make a mech ion drop in kit yourself easily. I want to mech my ion but I don't have the money.

Since you want BOB AND a mech, your best bet would probably be to sell the Ion for $75 - $100 (depending upon upgrades) and buy a Enmey. You'd probably end up spending the same money if not less.

Oh and in case this isn't unprofessional enough yet.

Fuck, shit, boobs, purple monkey dishwasher.

Unless you want to spend some serious $ on Clippard parts a walkable mech isnt feesable
I converted my Ion to mech just for kicks,also can run CO2 if Im at a field that only has CO2.No batteries ,eye wires&board to replace,also wanted a trainer gun for my 12yr old nephew before he went electro to learn marker safety
You can make your own mech Ion\PMR using an Autococker 3way,probably the cheapest but more difficlt mod,you can also make a pump Ion or PMR using an AC 3way too
Agree with above poster,almost better to buy an Enemy unless you really want to mod an Ion or have one laying around
If you want a walkable mech search "mech ion vespa" on PB nation

You can buy the valve for $10-$20 . Then just mount it inside ans use a dual tail oring bolt

there are two options for valves
the most popular is the clippard SMAV-3 because it's small and easy to mount
http://www.clippard.com/part/SMAV-3
I'd actually recommend the Fabco MSV-2 because they are supposed to be smoother and have a lighter pull due to the lever actuator
http://store.fabco-a...il.php?prod=MSV

The 3-way method works but if you don't already have one lying around it is better to just buy either of the aforementioned valves, because in the end it will cost you only about $10 more to use the valve and it will be less likely to fail.
If you're interested in doing the 3-way mod still, it's very simple:
All you do is use a pen spring to spring load the three way, so it stays open by itself, then mount it behind the trigger. When you pull the trigger it actuates the now spring loaded 3-way and fires the gun. When you release the trigger the spring resets the 3-way and brings the bolt back. You can message me and I'll walk you through it in more detail.
