They both come with equivalent asas, feednecks, barrels, and regulators. The ion has less kick, is more efficient, faster, has ramping, smaller, lighter, and waaaaaaaaaaaaaay more upgradable. I might have left something else out too.

yes, but make sure it is anti-siphoned, or use a remote.
Ions will shoot everytime you pull the trigger. since piranahs are sear-trippers they will not fully recock quite a bit, so you will have to stop and recock before you can shoot again.

You have to have someone install an antisiphon tube in a tank. I highly reccomend that you get an hpa tank and a fast hopper if you get he ion. You can get cheap hpa tanks for around $50-60. And even cheaper if you find a used one. Its well worth it.

Only if you have a anti-siphon. And even then its risky. I would just upgrade to N2.

If you really think that you need it. But save that for later. When I switched to my hyper I got increased accuracy and my dropdown is completley gone. So basically really good regulator = good accuracy. And the ion stock reg = not bad regulator = decent accuracy.
