The IonFire features a priming mechanism and a breech-loading system similar to the N-Strike SharpFire. As a breech-loading system blaster, it uses a reverse plunger system that is similar to the N-Strike SharpFire. Unlike other N-Strike Modulus blasters, the IonFire has decreased performance, and range is not advertised in the box. It is compatible with both barrel extensions and detachable shoulder stocks. It features a carry handle similar to the one on the Modulus ECS-10 and has two tactical rails: one on the carry handle and one under the blaster.
Reloading and firing
To reload the IonFire, pull back the slide to expose the breeching chamber where darts are loaded into the blaster. Place a dart in the chamber. Return the slide to its original position to prime the blaster; it will click into place when it is fully primed.
Pull the firing trigger to fire a dart.
An alternative method to reload the IonFire is to put the dart into the muzzle without the barrel extension, push it into the breeching chamber, and then pull the slide back and forward to prime the blaster. With the barrel extension, drop the dart into the muzzle, pull back the slide, pull the dart into the chamber, and then return the slide to its original position to prime the blaster. This method is not seen in the instructions.
- There have been many reported incidents of the IonFire being primed while still in the box. This has lead to spring compression, and decreased performance of the blaster.
- Because of its design, other barrel extensions will not fit on as well as its included barrel.
