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.
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 Desert Fox
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.
