Well, the proto sat for 5 years, so I finally opened it up, replaced every o ring, and went out and had a blast.  Trying to get back into the game, great exercise!  Now that I've graduated I'm going to the police academy in October, this is just a fun way to help maintain fitness Smile

I'm pretty sure I would have just lubed everything and hoped it worked. I wish I could spend the money on it, especially since the local paintball place is advertising on the radio. I'm doing archery instead to keep me entertained.

I have NEVER been any good at archery.  I've tried time and time again, which is frustrating to me because I'm pretty well versed in every other shooting sport lol.  

I had an O-ring kit, so I went ahead and changed them all.  Had a few leaks throughout the day, so replaced a few more rings, but once she was running right, man it was awesome. Sure, it's outdated by todays standards, but still managed to hold its own Smile

When I went to a field maybe 2 years ago with my work group, I felt like I had an ancient gun with my Ion and Halo B hopper even though I was the only one there with my own gun and everyone else was using tippmann A5s.  The ref took my gun to fill up the air tank and was like, oh man an Ion. I sometimes look on pbnation for DM8s and up to find a good price. I just can't justify buying one if it will never be used. It sure would be nice to get a DM as it would still be an awesome gun without the newest gadgets.

I tried rebuilding both of my ions and God just said no.  I need to do them at a field I guess so I can keep filling the air.  There was no hope for them.  But yes I know what you mean.  Everyone was making fun of "that brick of  a gun" talking about my proto haha
