So you'd get a new board, trigger, feedneck, bolt, detents, front reg.I think you're being a little harsh on Ion's. If bought for £100 then he'd have an extra £100 to upgrade it, and for that you could get a blackheart board, q-lock and new trigger.
Why not just buy a shocker...??????????
Can't "stop bashing it", it's my purpose in life..I've had my Ion for several months now and have played several training days and a tourney with it - Haven't had one problem with it. It isn't any more likely to go wrong than any other marker (I've heard from some that DM's are quite prone to breaking down, depends on your luck), so stop bashing it.
