Any one know how to mount a qloader to an ion without buying the $50 adapter kit?

if you go on Qloader.com there is a mod kit for the ion that consists of a 90degree feedneck/elbow kind of thing.

You do not need any mods for the Ion to accept the QLoader.

My Ion in Deadlywind DT12 body, with standard fittings.
The feedtube is artificially high as with the Deadlywind the feedneck screws into the body and not into the firing chamber of the Ion:

This picture shows the next stage of the setup I had. The feedneck has been switched to a low profile feed, but I still had a large loop of feed hose:

Ion in Deadlywind DT12 body and Spec Ops Longbow feed/QBow adaptor:

If you want a lower profile then the QLoader 90 degree adaptor should be used from the Ion mod kit, if you want a QBow setup and the option to switch to Longbow magazines then Spec Ops is the way.

If you are not too worried about the feedtube giving a high loop then the curve is easier on the paint going through. For the 'tighter' setup of my QBow I have switched from QLoader hose to a pond water pump hose.
