Desert Fox
Family: Desert Fox
MFG: Indian Creek Designs

Blow Forward bolt/valve
Mechanical Semi-auto
ICD Threaded Barrel

The ICD Desert Fox was built in the later 1990s, and operates on a blow-forward system similar in concept to an Automag. An integrated regulator in the rear of the gun adjusts velocity by regulating air pressure. Air from the regulator is fed into an accumulator chamber, where it applies forward pressure on the bolt. When the sear releases the bolt, it blows forward closing the breech and releasing gas to propel the ball before a return spring presses it back where it is caught by the sear to wait for the next shot.

Eclipse E-Blade Autococker
Family: Autococker
MFG: Planet

Stacked Tube Poppet Valve
Electropneumatic Automation
WGP Autococker Barrel

Like many companies, Planet has produced customized versions of WGP's Autococker, starting with the body from WGP, then milling and anodizing to their own design, and adding their own components. Planet developed the E-Blade, a grip frame with combination of electronics, a solenoid valve to control the recocking pneumatics, and a solenoid to release the hammer. The E-Blade converted a pneumatic automation Autococker into an electropneumatic, with a light trigger pull and electronic timing. The E-Blade was so successfull that not only did it go on Planet's custom Eclipse 'cockers, but it was also licensed to WGP as the Worr Blade in WGP's electronic 'cockers.

The K-CQB is the Close Quarter Battle configuration of HGP's K-Series marker. K-Series markers are imported into the US and resold under a variety of names, including RAP4-Gen5 from Real Action Paintball and Trinity MG4 from Trinity Paintball. The K-Series is quite modular in terms of the accessories it can take and compatability with accessories from other markers, particularly the Tippmann A5. Its innovative feed system allows the user to choose between a traditional hopper, or an 18-shot spring-loaded magazine.

Family: Automag
MFG: Airgun Designs

Pneumatic Blow Forward
Automag Twist Lock Barrel

The Minimag was a variant of the original 68 Automag with a deceptive name, it was actually larger than the Automag. The body tube was longer with cosmetic venting in the front, and it came standard with a powerfeed (a tube that ran across the body to feed rather than going direct to the beech - to stop ball bobble.) Instead of using a backbottle style ASA, the Minimag featured a vertical ASA in front of the grip frame. This arrangement used gravity to prevent the feeding of liquid CO2, and gave a smaller overall length when considering the paintgun and the tank, giving the "mini" name.

Family: Nerve
MFG: Smart Parts

Stacked Tube Semi
Impulse Threaded Barrel

The Nerve represents an evolution of Smart Parts' Impulse design. It's basic method of operation is the same - a pneumatic ram controlled by a solenoid valve strikes the exhaust valve and closes the bolt. An innovative field stripping system removes the bolt and back cover with a single twist and pull.

OGI 03
Family: Illustrator Hybrid
MFG: Odyssey Group International

Stacked Tube
Autococker Threaded Barrel

The 03 was produced by Odyssey Group International, a company formed by the merger of paintgun manufacturer Dragun and loader manufacturer Odyssey. While it physically resembles the Spyder and other stacked tube blowback semis, its actual operation is electropneumatic. A solenoid valve controls low pressure gas to drive a ram against a poppet valve to fire.
