my newer fox(lower serial number)is black, and is a deluxe. my older one is a standard, and silver. my silver desert fox must be the final form of the desert fox, because it came with a two piece barrel, the black one did not, the ball retainer is also different in that it is rounded, and not rectangular. The other things I noticed were the bolt, and trigger plate. the bolt on the Silver fox is has a slightly larger face than the deluxe, and the trigger plate on the deluxe has a lot of front to back slop due to the angle the slot was cut at; this seems to be fixed on the silver fox, as there is no such slop. could this be an updated version, with impovements, or someones screw up in manufacturing?
I actually would call ICD about that. I just got off the phone with them, because I was looking to purchase a new Fox. They said they ran out of parts to make one about 3 months ago, which totaally sucks. There's an old website around, I know its still up. It dates from '98 and describes a LOT Of the changes the Fox went through, and the final forms of it.
