About the Ion Productions Team

In March 2015, the ion team created an Indigogo campaign to fund the XM42 flamethrower project. After one year of the XM42 flamethrower being for sale directly to consumers, the ion team signed on with an exclusive distributor for the XM42 flamethrower. Some time later, the distributor was unable to sell off the inventory, built up a surplus and quit buying product from the ion production team. The ion team began to experience cash flow problems and unsuccessfully attempted to secure a loan or sell the company. In 2018 they declared bankruptcy, dissolved the company and issued a warning for customers to dispute any charges with their credit card companies. http://ion-productions.com/
