Review: Buy the FS-7
By: Nick Ryan
The Indian Creek FS-7 displays high end qualities and out performs other high end makers on the market. Its sleek lines and high end operation make it perfect for the hardcore tournament paintball player.
FS-7’s feature a highly advanced PDS system also called the eye system. These eyes are thru beam which means that they do not allow the marker to fire unless a ball is present in the chamber. This PDS is highly effective and proves itself on the field. This marker also features a twist lock feed neck which holds the hopper (a container to hold the paintballs) on the marker. This feed neck twists to clamp onto the hopper and holds any hopper with ease. The FS-7 also includes a high quality board, the Predator. The Predator board controls the markers rate of fire. The board includes five stock settings. These settings include: semi auto, full auto, ramping, PSP, and NXL modes. These features are important in a match, but not nearly as important as the inter operation of the marker.
The FS-7 operation uses pressurized air at 4500 p.s.i. with an operating pressure of 300 p.s.i. The marker does about 1200 shots to a 68 c.i. 4500 p.s.i. air tank. The marker has a blow forward operation meaning that a spring pushes the bolt forward and the pressurized air pushes the bolt back. The bolt is made of high quality delron which is a very slick plastic compound that does not require lubrication to prevent wear and tear. Operations importance can not be matched, but what if a person wants to customize his or her marker.
The Indian Creek Freestyle also excepts multiple upgrades from a new trigger, to a slick new bolt. Freestyles can except Ventury or Voodoo style bolts. These bolts have more hole on the tip which pushes the ball more efficiently and accurately. This marker can except a different trigger to. The pro trigger is a wave style and allows the player to shoot at a higher rate of speed. Another upgrade that recommended by owners all around the country would be an alternative feed neck called the Q-Lock. The Q-Lock actually clamps onto the hopper eliminating the fear of a player’s hopper falling off during a match.
In conclusion, the FS-7 is a great buy and is used by some professional teams like the Naughty Dogs. It has a great operation system, many upgrade options, and awesome accessories that make the FS-7 stand out from the rest. This marker is an affordable, low maintenance marker that out performs and stands out from the competition.





Conclusion: I like it
