Ion XE + SP-1 = SP-IXE ???

Well fellas I finally finished my Ion XE/SP-1 conversion. The reason for this is I wanted a milsim marker but without a traditional M4/MP5/any other current gun copy, but has a distinct/unique look. I love how the SP-1 looked and considered buying one, but that would have meant me going bankrupt trying to upgrade two separate markers :P

Since I just bought a tricked out Ion last fall, and recently added the XE conversion, I found the SP-1 body online and decided to convert my Ion over to an SP-1. This is the result:





Components:

SP-1 Body
Ion XE breech/Firing Can
Virtue Laser Eyes
Virtue Redefined board
Virtue On/Off button
SP 360 QEV
Tech T L7
Stock Ion trigger frame
SP Pro Touch Grips
SP On/Off asa/drop
Bob Long Torpedo reg
Freak Jr with 10" Freak Tip

If anyone would like an itemized list to do this conversion, let me know.

Removed because apparently no one can stand a joke if its not based around being gay or MAr.

So I guess the image of my bald head in the reflection on the mirror makes me a skinhead too ? Wow, foughtwolf, don't make this into something it's not, and keep the politically correct bs out of my thread. It's a mod, to a marker, based off of 2 Smart Parts platforms.

Thats an interesting look. Does the front rail get in the way at all? Eat your finger?

All in all, very nice job.

Gee, thanks for finding it funny like it was supposed to be. If I wanted to be racist I would have come out and said it.

PS: Its a interesting look that I like.

Thanks, and no, there is about an inch or so of clearance. I hold it buy the reg vs the lower rail portion. Thats the reason why I went with the Torpedo vs the stock Ion reg, that and the reg cover was red and without the cover, its butt ugly, lol.

I'm glad you like it.

Actually, it was racist when you singled out a particular region of people, but it's over and needs to be dropped.

Good work. Stylish, different.
How do you like the Bob Long reg and L7? I have 2 work horse Ions and I'm thinking about changing the regs on them. They have earned their keep so far so I figured I'd do one more nice thing to them. The Warrior bolts I'm using seem to beat the snot out of the back o-ring at the rear of the can. However there is a positive noticeable difference between stock bolts and Warrior bolts.

I have the L7 in mine (CP reg though), and I really noticed a difference. It seems to be alot more air efficient. I did, however, have to play with the dwell settings.
