Introduction

If the Ion is not shooting properly, the bolt's o-rings may need to be lubricated, or the bolt may be damaged from wear and tear. While working on the Ion, the user should be aware of the pressure due to air inside the gun. Pressurized air can be forceful, causing particles to be ejected from the gun into your eyes and/or skin. When air bubbles enter the bloodstream, they can block blood vessels and cause embolisms. To avoid this, make sure to point the gun in a safe direction when de-gasing the Ion.

Remove the air tank by rotating it counterclockwise. Do not pull the trigger or jostle the gun, there will still be pressurized air inside the gun that could be expelled and cause bodily harm if injected into eyes and/or skin. The pressure gauge will indicate the leftover air in the gun.
