Hey guys, I was inspired by Mike's Ion Upgrade Supershow of DEATH, so I recently bought a Smart Parts Ion from trinity paintball here in Burbank with the intention of modding it out as my first custom project. I've done quite a few things to it already, here's a list of it's upgrades and a couple pictures. This is "The Red Devil":

 

ScreenShot2013-08-20at83050PM_zps369af7b

 

ScreenShot2013-08-20at83059PM_zps4c936c4

 

16" Freak Barrel, w/ inserts

Green Virtue Laser Eyes (I wanted red ones to match the rest of the gun but I didn't want to wait for longer shipping)

TechT L7 Bolt

Red Stock Body

Roller Blade Trigger

CP Regulator

RAPS II On/Off w/ rail

Trinity Clamping Feed-neck

GOG Upgraded QEV

 

I still want to put in a Virtue OLED board and swap out the body kit for a TechT Sleeper Body or some other aluminum body kit (preferably dust red) but I haven't been able to get my hands on one. Plus I might swap out that Trinity feed-neck for a CP one. Other than that, you guys have any suggestions of what else I should do to this gun as far as upgrades?

 

P.S. In a little while I'm planning on buying an Axe, and I'm going to buy a cocker threaded barrel back for the Freak barrel and use it on that gun. Then I think I'll take the stock Axe barrel and put it on the Ion with an adapter, or maybe I'll just buy an overbore CP two piece for the Ion. I might then sell the Ion with that barrel or maybe I'll keep it as a backup gun or just a custom trophy, haha.

too bad the body isn't metal. would have been cool to have "The red devil" lazed on the side surrounded by some Celtic or scroll work.

I would love to do that! If I find an aluminum body somewhere I totally would, but they seem to be quite scarce since the fall of smart parts...

 

I might have ANS gear order something for me if I can afford it, they didn't have anything in stock when I asked.

I've been looking at all of those on their site, it says they're in stock on the website but when I went in and asked them about it  in the store they said they didn't have any of them in stock. Plus they said that Shocktech was crap and advised against buying them.

I agree, I like the look now, but a metal body would feel less... cheap. haha

Ion's are a funny little marker to upgrade. Usually able to mod them on the cheap. Almost finished with my son's Ion.
