Just want to know why the foxes are such sought after guns. Are they extremely reliable, accurate, nice? What makes them so good?

Also, why did ICD put foam on their barrels? Cats, foxes, what's up with it?

Foxes are just very simple, nice shooting guns and are fairly rare. Last year I was shooting paint with Craig Palmer and I asked to try his blazer. I handed him my Fox as I shot a few from his Bz. He shot a few from the Fox, smiled real big, said 'This gun shoots real nice' then proceeded to shoot a bunch more at various targets. High praise from a guy who's not easily impressed.

I have a nice Alley Cat as well, and while it's a pleasure to shoot and very quiet, just doesn't have the solid chunky feel of the Fox.

Both are good guns, but as already mentioned, very different.
Cat is nice and simple, I kept one around just as a loaner for quite a while.
Plays nicely on CO2.

The fox is definately akin to a mag, has a nice solid, reliable feel.
I always run mine on air only, and I THINK that may be a requirement.

No, they do fine on co2. The Deluxes came with expansion chambers.

The foam was a nod to all the pump players who were upgrading to semi-automatics. No pump arm, but they wanted to put their other hand on the barrel anyhow.

I do that all the time. Took me awhile to learn to shoot one-handed, though.
