Welcome to the VintageRex.com Online Paintball Museum!
VintageRex.com 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 Promaster
Manufacturer: ICD Indian Creek Design
The ICD ProMaster is an electropneumatic paintball marker manufactured by Indian Creek Designs and first released in 2005. The Promaster was designed to replace the aging Bushmaster 2000 model, which had been Indian Creek Design's flagship marker between 2000 and 2004.
The Promaster has a significantly smaller profile than its Bushmaster predecessor. It is an electronic solenoid-actuated computer controlled marker. The major components of the marker are machined from solid, aircraft-grade aluminum, and then hard anodized. The stock board can operate in Semi-Automatic mode, Ramp Automatic, Ramp, and Ramp burst. All modes can be capped at 15bps or completely uncapped. Modes are selected by changing switches on the circuit board under the markers grip.
The Promaster comes stock with a 12" ported barrel with Autococker/Intimidator threads. The stock marker also comes with a four-way adjustable aluminum double trigger, electronic break-beam eye, delrin bolt, and quick pull pins for field stripping.
Designed to operate on low-pressure, The main operating pressure is 250-300 PSI, which can be monitored via the gauge on the primary (input) regulator. The secondary pressure is factory preset and regulated to 85-95 PSI. Gas usage is controlled through these 2 internal regulators. C02 is not a recommended propellant for the Promaster or any electropneumatic marker, as the cold liquid CO2 can destroy a solenoid valve. Instead, regulated High Pressure Air or Nitrogen systems are recommended although CO2 may be used if an Anti-siphon tube has been installed inside the CO2 bottle.
Since the Promaster is able to reach firing rates of over 15 bps (30 bps is claimed by Indian Creek) , it will operate best when used with a force-fed hopper such as Vlocity/Vlocity Jr, Halo, Empire B, Pulse, Fasta, and or a Dye Rotor. However a force-fed hopper is not absolutely necessary and an agitated, or other electronic hopper, may be used with the Promaster at lower rates of fire (ie. Viewloader Evlution 2 or 3, Revlutions, Halo TSA Frontman and Backman, Ricochet Apache, etc.)
