ion issues

30 May 2015 - 06:10 PM

So, i have this ion that has some issues, first, even with fresh batteries, it wont turn on, i have to take it appart, try again, turns on, then reassemble it in order to play.. This can happen once or twice in days play.. Sometimes not at all.
Then, the main issue is that when shooting rebound mode, after a few trigger pulls it goes full auto until i pull the trigger again,notice that it only happens when it is aired and pressured, what can it be?? Is it a board issue or is it just bouncing off the trigger?? I have a trinity sling style trigger, and is set for a long pre travel and very very little post travel. This only goes down on the rebound mode, in semi works ok and i have yet to test it with full auto and burst modes..

blackheart board on an ion

29 May 2015 - 07:50 PM

im upgrading my ion to a blackheart board and i would like to know if somebody has ever seen a video of the installation, it comes already with the hoses cut to the right size i assume, but i would like to know if someone has tips on removing and reinstalling the banjos, that is my main concern. 

thanks in advance


blackheart board upgrade

Just wondering if i upgrade an ion with a blackheart board if it is a must to also upgrade to a QEV, since i'll hardly if ever set my ROF over 12 bps..

Etha vs G5 vs Mini GS.. go!

09 May 2015 - 11:26 AM

so, im selling a bunch of gear, hopefully, some of my mechs, maybe a loader and my ion to finance my new electro.. i have the choice of these three markers to get NIB, but, before some one asks if im willing to buy used, yes, im willing, but there are not many options for me since i live in mexico, so, other than an etek 1, a bunch of other ions, over priced DMs and egos, there is not much here to get other than going for a new gun.

back to the main concern..

etha-$350

G5-$335

Mini GS- $380 

what would be the best bang for this kind of money? 

What i want from my new gun: light weight, softer shot if possible, quiet, reliability, given that i'm quite careful regarding maintinence.

efficiency is not that big of a deal, since i get free hpa fills every other game at any given field here.

as i told before, my other options, these ones used are an Etek 1-$200, and a vanguard creed $280.


proto one piece vs dye ultra light one piece..

25 April 2015 - 01:52 PM

Hi, i just got a proto 14" one piece barrel for my ion/enmey markers, got it because the stock ion is a POS and the enmey's is not as bad, but just too short wich makes it a little harder to aim down on it.. a few months ago, dye released a one piece ultralight, and after checking the specs on both (proto barrel and dye ultralight 1pc) they are both made out of the same grade material, i assume they are made in the same machines, the only difference between the two being just bore size, proto is .690 and dye is .688, is there something that justifies the huuuuge price tag difference between both barrels??
