ICD Desert Fox - School Me!

Saw this marker for the first time in the above thread, “my boss’s guns.”
Not sure how I just noticed it, I’ve seen them talked about for years.

Anyways, ever just see a marker and think “I have to have it?”

Well, this is one of them.


School me on everything I need to know about these, please!
(Including functionality, reliability, price point, replacement parts, rarity, etc etc)


Thanks!

Best Desert Fox Site

This site should school you up:

ICD 98 Desert Fox Review and Tips

^^^^ This is the single best source of Desert Fox information that I have yet found.

BTW: I passed on a Fox at a great price recently in order for it to be bought by a certain MCB member. I expect an honest and interesting review when he has become more familiar with the gun.

It's not a mag, so you won't find tons of upgrades. If you run CO2 put on an expansion chamber. Expect Mag ruggedness.

Just be aware that very, very few people have heard of it. Fewer will know it on sight. And a very small subset have ever held one.

My advice... If you find an intact Desert Fox at a reasonable price you should buy it.

Expect to pay $185-250, depending on model, condition and accessories. The asking price for the last one sold on MCB was $225. It sold quickly.

Also, many of the earlier back bottle models have gutted regs, so be sure to ask.

As I said in the linked post, "My boss's guns", my boss's Desert Fox regularly destroys the bolt. If it's aluminum, it mars the crap out of it. If it's delrin, it snaps it in half. We haven't found a working fix. Might just be a lemon.

From all accounts, this is not uncommon.

I know they're cool on paper, but if you want a good, indestructible blow forward, get a Mag. At least they're done correctly.

“But Lord,” asked Gabriel, “Is this not too generous to these Canadians?”

And God replied, “Just wait and see the neighbors I shall inflict upon them.”
