Sadly no real way around that in an Ion - at the moment....

I'm working on a new bolt design that will work in the mechanical Ions that will have a 2 stage bolt motion similar to the LVL-X in a mag. At 180psi, the bolt should only have around 3 pounds of force for the first half of the bolt cycle. You can pinch some rather brittle paint at 3 pounds...

I'll be building the prototypes for the bolt in the next week hopefully and will know more shortly after.

The 2 tail o-rings do make for a very consistent gun provided you have a good regulator feeding it. Which the stock Ion regulator is actually a spectacular reg. Very under appreciated by a lot of people.
