Looks like its just the regular Ion.. The body cut at the barrel is different then an XE. Also, that isn't a bolt out back body.

As JLuke already posted, just leave it alone. It'll shoot just fine and you will have some spare cash in your pocket.

It shoots 19bps out of the box so take that as you will for board upgrades.

qev can reduce cycle time and takes a little stress off your solenoid.

Eye upgrades are pointless unless uou want fancy colors to show your friends when your not playing.

A lighter bolt isn't a bad idea, I always liked the firebolts and the techt bolts.

I always liked an ion with bolt and qev upgrades. But as jluke said don't go crazy.

I'm surprised nobody mentioned this:

DETENTS!! Get upgraded detents if it doesn't have them already. The stock rubber nipple ones wear very fast under use.

A Hollowpoint bolt, can help reduce feedstack clipping when using smaller paint and force feed loaders. They're also very lightweight bolts.

hmm don't think i'll do a board upgrade anytime soon...i don't need it to go crazy, just need something that shoots smooth.

will probably do the qev and eyes (for something cool to look at...going to go red probably..if not blue so it will board lights if i decide to do that later).

will look into the bolts too...

I think the Ion only shoots 17bps not 19. I'll go with every one else on upgrade the bolt and a qev.

Alright then it's settled.
Going to leave the stock board as is for now until I inevitably decide to mess with it.
Gonna get the Deadlywind Hollowpoint bolt, Smartparts 360 QEV, and Virtue blue LED laser eyes, and a blade trigger because the stock one on mine was broken anyway.

Anyone else got a stock gripframe in good condition they wanna part with? Mine is pretty beat up - paint is coming off and there's alot of deep scratches. Let me know~

Also is there any way to black out the hyper reg that I have? I'd like to go for a blacked out look.
