In Topic: sell ion? get eNVy? keep ion?

28 March 2011 - 07:59 PM


alright thanks. yea i was wanting to maybe get a new barrel and a new asa.. and possibly a new reg but i had a question on my reg, my velocity adjuster is i guess screwed in all the way and im having trouble screwing it back out. any other way i could do that?


You may need to actually take the stock ASA apart and lube it up - if they get stuck like that sometimes they are hard to get back out - DO NOT air up your gun though with it cranked all the way up - you could blow your solenoid out and that would suck.

I think this youTube video may help - I am at work and can not watch it - but I think this is it:

well its screwed in so there is no air going to the gun what so ever. i just cant get the velocity adjuster to turn at all.

You need to take out the two set screws first. Then use a wrench to unscrew the adjuster. takes about 15-20 turns. It shouldnt be hard to take out. Make sure your turning the right way. Then you can service the reg by using a deep socket wrench.


well the 2nd screw in that little oval kind of thing isnt even visible because i cant turn it to get to it. like almost as if its stuck.

what upgrades would you recomend for the regular ion then



It works fine as is. You got the feedneck which is great. Everything else is just preference. If you dont like the trigger, you can get a new one, same with the asa, reg, etc. But its fine as is. If you really want all that shiny upgradedness, just get another ion already upped. Its cheaper. There is really no point in getting a $50 techt bolt when you paid $65 for the ion. lol. But the ion works well as is.

The envy is a good marker, but you got an ion already. Dont upgrade the board. Its a lot of $ and is not needed. It will not increase the profit you make on the marker either.

If you really want bolt out the back, sell the ion for $100, and get an upped xe for $150-$180. I got my xe with upgraded board, upgreded bolt and everything for $120 a year ago. So its more price weary for you to just buy one already with the upgrades you want then to buy the upgrades new.
