What they are doing with them I have no idea..
Why would Kee by ICD and then shut them down ?
It would have been easier just to flush their money down the drain.
Doesnt make much sense to me.

Agreed. It seems silly to take over a business and then dissolve it. It would be much easier and cheaper to just run them out using underhanded tactics.

Isn't the FS8 a new marker?

They have more or less owned them since early 2k4 when the first run of Smart Parts law suits happened.. Im not sure of the specifics but most of all there R and D was being done by NPS and almost all of there distribution as well.. After 2k4 all of the ICD line was sent over seas for manufacturing and there quality went to hell.. Some. not all of the freestyles generations were made by ICD in shop but that is the only US made ICD gun.

AS for the fs8 being new.. no not really.. its currently about 2 years old Fs-8 denotes generations not a model year.

Did you call ICD? They still answer their phones.

I believe Online Paintball Store - Paintball Guns for Sale - Sak World Paintball has ICD parts.

If no joy at those two head to www.icd-owners.com and someone there will help you out.

I E-mailed, but got no response. I'm sure that tech support on a nine-year-old gun is not a priority right now. I guess I'll have to call them on Monday.

The ICD owners group is mostly electro guys now. SAKworld came up with nada as well.

When I get the info, I'm going to get it for every spring and O-ring in the 98 foxes (if possible)

I talked to Victor at ICD today. No indication that he felt like they were going under.

When I asked about support of the 'Fox he told me that stuff like springs and O-rings would be available for "Quite a while". Big stuff like pistons and frames for a little bit.

I ordered a main spring for $3 + some shipping.

Good news on both counts(ICD's future and your part)
