Welcome to the Online Paintball Museum! is dedicated to the collection and preservation of Paintball's History. By archiving photos, ad scans, manuals, and more, we hope to keep the knowledge of Paintball's Past alive.

This site is fully searchable. The Marker Exhibit can be viewed by Manufacturer, Marker, and Type of Marker just in case you don't know the name.

As you can see, this is a work in progress, so not all the information is currently available. We hope to steadily add to the site and fill out the data.

Please view the Donate section to see how you can help out by submitting Ad Scans, Articles, and Information.

Of course, we have an online forum, so that collectors may gather together and network. Chit chat about paintball, collecting, or post your wares in the classifieds.

Do you have a love for the history and collecting the sport as much as we do? We are currently taking applications for curators. The pay is lousy, and the bosses jerks, but we need dedicated people to help enter data. If you think you have what it takes, contact us and tell us why we should appoint you as a curator.

Paintball Museum Spotlight - ICD Indian Creek Design Free Style

Free Style


Manufacturer: ICD Indian Creek Design
Year: 2005

The FS uses a spool system similar to an Automag, but instead of incorporating a shut-off valve, and using a sear/spring arrangement to return the bolt from its blow-forward operation, it uses air pressure. The system has full-pressure supply air stored in a dump chamber in the rear of the marker. This pressure is applied to the center pin in the rear of the bolt, which is biased to push it open. The regulated air supplied by a front Low Pressure Regulator (LPR) is run through a 2/3-way solenoid valve that is designed to be "Normally On" when it is not energized. This lower pressure air is supplied to the front of the bolt, and the regulator is adjusted to supply enough force to push the bolt back against the supply pressure.

When the solenoid valve is energized the air in front of the bolt vents, allowing the bias supplied to the rear of the bolt to move it forward. When the bolt has moved forward enough to seal the breech, the pin unseals from the powertube it rides in, and air is vented through the bolt to the ball, firing it. When the solenoid valve is de-energized, air is again supplied to the front of the bolt to return it.
