If you only buy ONE mod for your Ion - this is it.

I had just gotten a new hopper (evo2) and it was a little large for the stock feedneck. So I sanded it down a bit untill I could twist it on - tough, but not impossible. I actually thought that this would be a good thing, since with previous setups on different guns I had issues with hoppers falling off at...inconvenient moments.
The problem this time - I couldnt get it off at all. Twisting, bending, vice clamps, bench vice - nada. For almost 2 weeks that hopper sat on my desk with the neck still attached & I'd fiddle around with it when I got bored. Finally I just snapped & grabbed a hacksaw & made a few cuts right thru the neck...and it still wouldnt come off. Finally I had to cut 2 whole sections completely off the neck, pulled out the o-rings with pliers and cut ANOTHER section off...and at last, victory was mine.
Then I smoked a cigarette, went back in the house & ordered a new feedneck from Action Village.
Funny thing - nothing on that gun has broken, stuck or jammed since. I think its afraid of me now.
