    So you'd get a new board, trigger, feedneck, bolt, detents, front reg.
    Why not just buy a shocker...??????????

    Can't "stop bashing it", it's my purpose in life..:) :p

    Iam sorry put a matrix be it proto or dye next to a ion be it upgraded or not and you can still tell me you want the ion

    all you need to do with a matrix is keep the orings lubed and change any worn and get a service once a year for the reg ect

    the amount of ions you see that are broken or the banjo has gone what ever that is
    trigger broken /eyes broken ect ect

    I didn't once say that it was as good as a DM or PM, but for the price I'm saying it ain't half bad and credit should be given for that. If it costed as much as a DM on the other hand, then there would be good enough reason to bash it but for £100?

    Steal.

    £200 to spend ?

    An ION for £100 ? and spend another £100 on upps ?:rolleyes:
    The ION is a good starter marker if you are restricted by funds. The problem with the ION is maintenance and reliability . Maintenance is a pain in the arse if you have paint in the bolt. You have to totally strip the marker apart.
    This is where reliability is poor due to worn out frame screws, threads on the banjo's and the threads in the frame itself.

    Trying to not be biased as possible :p Mr. Tom Allen has suggested 05 speed which are going for around the £200 figure, which i also think is one of the best markers for that price range.
    The speeds are easily maintained, with just a quick clean of the breech area and your done. Eyes are very easy to access , and like most markers they easily do 15 bps, which is all your really ever need.
