Hi!

I just bought the longbow kit and ION to go with it. I applied the kit to the marker and upgraded my ION with a new firebolt and a QEV 360.

The thing is that its really loud, I thought it would be more silent... ? Has anyone else with the longbow kit and ION experienced this?

Maybe my settings are wrong?

Thanks!

well i suppose it all depends on your definition of quiet. but it might be due to the barrel your using, or because the absence of a hopper to cover the neck feed hole could cause it to sound louder. Im going with that one, when i used the longbow kit i never had suck problems.

If you added a QEV, did you lower your dwell? That could cause some noise, also the hopper ^^^^ statement is correct.

Yeah well the dwell is correctly set but I guess its the "non-existent-hopper" problem. Because gun is just "open" from the where the hopper used to be... :dodgy:

what barrel are you using? cuz my longbow (the ion kit with the All American barrel) is super quiet. Are you using HPA or CO2?

The kit itself wont make your gun quiet or loud. It has to do with the barrel and the internals of the ion.

What he said. The kit has NO effect on the sound of the marker.
