The latest addition to the Paintgun Stable

Well, there we go.  I bought something smart parts.  This is the Epiphany.  It's a factory upgraded Ion.  So far I like it.

What makes it different from an Ion?

First, it runs at a higher pressure, so there's less dropoff, and higher efficiency.  From the factory they came with spacers to fill the valve chamber to keep the pressure up at lower velocities.  Sadly, the PO didn't give me those with this gun.

Speaking of air delivery, the factory ASA is an on/off one. 

Third, the body is a magnesium alloy, as is the reg cover.  The blue bits are all rubber.  It's quite a classy setup.

The gun also comes with a freak barrel, including a .693 spacer.  That's quite a bit over an ION. 

And finally it comes with the ultralight bolt.  So the gun basically doesn't kick. 

It needs a new board, a cocker threaded breech, and a QEV.  So far I'm happy with it.
