Download the manual from VirtuePaintball.com. You'll be able to adjust the rate of fire, once you find out how to get into the settings.

I dont' have access to my Ion (with the OLED, see my sig for the mods) but, I can tell you that I tuned it with the help/advice of a Virtue tech and the Rotor directly on top (no Warp Feed), and I reached a very solid 18BPs in a video recorded session. I don't know if that's your definition of 'very fast'. I'm not sure what the limitation was (the loader, the board, the fire chamber, etc)


Here's a link to the manual:

If you want tuning advice, I'd check out this page:

What do you have for upgrades? An aftermarket bolt and QEV will allow you to run a much lower dwell than stock. Stock dwell on a Virtue is 30 ms, if you have a QEV you can run around 10-12, and even a few less with a lighter bolt too.

right now all i have is the board. Im waiting for my l7 bolt to come from techt then im going to buy a qev. How many qev's do i need for my ion? I had a l6 bolt in it and it shot alot faster. I dint think the bolt made that much of a difference.

You can only use one QEV with the Ion.

L6 and a QEV would be moderately fast. L7 with QEV even faster, assuming you tune it properly.

Ok I feel a little stupid because the whole time I was trying to fix my settings to make my ion shoot faster I didn't look at my virtue eyes to see if they were working and they don't. So I replaced them with the stock eyes then hooked up air and shot my ion and now it's shooting roughly 14 to 18 bps without my new bolt and a qev. I should be getting my new bolt soon and then I'm ordering a qev so I will then try it out and hopefully will hit the 22 bps or higher. When I do I will let everyone know and thank you to everyone for the help. Any other upgrades I should do to help make my ion better.
