I just bought an Ion off craigslist and the guy said he had co2 so i could dry fire it to show it worked but he showed up with an empty tank so i wasn't able to fire it. I know i should have just left but it was such a good deal an ion with tons of extras for $60. Well anyways, when i screw in the tank it sometimes leaks co2 out of the barrel or it doesn't fire even after i made sure i had the settings were right for firing. i have no clue what is wrong with it. it sounds like it isn't getting pressurized when i try to fire it. Can someone please help?

to start with, don't use CO2 on an ION, it will eventually blow out the solenoid and you'll have to buy a new board for it.

buy a oring kit for it, replace all the orings, and then lube it properly. If the guy was using co2 on it, there's a very good chance he's never taken the time to clean it properly.

Honestly though, you never should have bought it the second you saw he had used a CO2 tank on it.

Yeah I regret it. I will never buy anything on Craigslist again. I am going to take it to my local paintball store and have them do a full inspection and fix anything that is broken. I will lose money but its to late now. :/
