Manufacturer: ICD Indian Creek Design
The Desert Fox looks very similar to the blow-back ICD markers, but has a very different internal design. It functions much like an improved Automag; an open-bolt blow-forward design. Like the 'Cats, 'open-bolt' means the bolt is normally open so that a paintball can drop into the chamber at any time (though double feeding is normally prevented by a stop that holds the chambered round in place below the powerfeed). 'Blow-forward' means that the bolt moves forward under air power when the trigger is pulled, and the mainspring pushes the bolt back after the air is released to re-cock the gun for the next shot. Velocity is controlled via an integrated regulator. Increasing the regulated air pressure in the air chamber increases the energy transfered to the paintball. The advantages of the blow-forward design include higher Rate of Fife (ROF), less reciprocating mass to reduce recoil and marker jump while firing, and very consistent shot-to-shot velocity.
