I'd like to get a cat or some kind, but I've never seen one that wasn't powerfeed. Did they ever make a centerfeed or rf/lf?

Panther VTS was right feed. I think that was the only one not powerfeed.

Or LineSI barrels, which would probobly make more sense given the heritage of ICD.

Granted, when Kingman copied the LineSI promaster part-for-part to make the Spyder, the barrel was one of the few things they changed.

I never understood the complaints on the ICD barrel thread. Hands down my favorite thread. so quick you could remove-squeegee-replace before the cocker guy got his half off.

which limited your options to the stock barrel or perhaps a Freak back- if you could find one.
As an ICD dealer and a Creek shooter we always had a variety of barrels. every popular barrel company at the time made an ICD threaded one.
Armson, Dye, Smart Parts, Lapco, J&J and even some of the less then stellar barrel distributors like Pmi, National Paintball, Taso had ICD threaded.
I still have Armsons, J&J and a Dye in my Cabinet.

Certain stores (who will be left unnamed) were to lazy to order barrels for them. costumers would come in and say "****** paintball said they don't make Dye/Smart Parts/other barrels in ICD threads" Liars. I would just lay a pile of different ones on the counter.


I wish they never switched to Cocker threads on the 04 Bushmasters,Promasters and Freestyle.

I've never measured that thread OD. Do you think it would take a freak insert? People down here really don't know what to make of 'cats. A brass insert in the stock barrel would really step up the sleeper mode.

Yup the Panther is right feed, But it also has a weird barrel thread and a different threaded back cap. These are pre Indian Creek Design, they are Indian Creek Engineering.
The Barrel threads are the same type as Pro-lite and A-5 but positioned differently, meaning Tippmann barrels will NOT work with out some modification to the barrel.

I dont see why not. they sell ICD threaded freak bases(quite cheap on e-bay)
My freak inserts read .73 and a stock icd barrel reads .80.

ICD threads are one of the many Betamax barrel threads. Superior, but they fell by the wayside. I only wish ICD had gone 'cocker thread so I could get barrels today. ICD threaded barrels are out there, but nothing like new (or used) 'cocker barrels.

BUT, to be really fair, I can have the barrel off my old pump even faster than I can get the barrel off my 'Fox or T-cats.
