ICD thunder cat

I had an ICD puma (or was it a panther) back in the mists of time, had a few mates with alley cats, I have seen a thunder cat come up for sale...is there any difference in design or rarity (other than a cool logo and name?)

cheers

All of the info you ever want to read and more here:

The puma seem to be the hardest to find, the alleycat and thundercat pop up every now and then.

silver cat seem to be harder to find than black.

Offhand, I would say for the base guns that the Panther or that one year of newer Puma are probably harder to find. The newer Puma had the cat type body with the Puma ASA.

However, I have not seen very many of the splash anno'd cats change hands lately.

Asa's and grips are the main things to watch between the models, even in the same models sometimes.

cheers thank you...fyi it must have been a panther...valve operation looks the same from the diagram, but you could change the direction of the front asa I would run it with a 9 horizontal on the front and a fixed no air through stock on the back...or 2 tanks if the weather was cool.

Panther has a normal feed. I believe it was made in 93.

The rest of the cats have powerfeeds.

Bobcat has no backbottle ASA... Only the front one, usually angled backwards.

Some A/TCats have only one ASA.

Backbottle only tend to not like HPA. Most cats like liquid CO2.

Lots of other trivia if you look.

I'm starting to think this is more of a blowback/hammer ring + tiny paint issue. Most cats people come across have been used to some extent and don't have the freshest seals in them. A bad hammer ring will also have a much harder time opening the valve.

My BBA only Thundercat doesn't care what I use after putting a fresh hammer ring in it. I can massively overbore the barrel compared to the paint and I'm not having any recock issues.
