Review: I bought this gun, about 3 weeks after it went on a major sale, due to Chris Lasoya droping the ICD contract. Originally I was looking at Promasters, and I went to my local shop where they only had both the Lasoya and Standard. I held them and knew right away which one was nicer, The lasoya was lighter, smaller, and lighter trigger pull, however at the time the Lasoya was $475 and the Promaster was $250. About 2 days after on most websites the Lasoya droped down to $200 due to factory discountinuation. I bought It, and its no longer sold at most places. The only places I have found it being sold is on Ebay for around $500. Trust me if you can still find the $200 price tag, BUY IT this is a $500 gun and you can see it with the preformance..

I took this gun to the field after popin on an old ION asa, this thing rips paint!!!! I was shooting uncapped semi with a 15bps hopper, and i was skipping every 3 shots. Im estimating about 18bps with my halo.

Seting up this gun is quit complicated. The battery is a pain in the @$$ to install you gotta like flip it around. And the board is complicated. Go to Indian Creak website and print out a manuel it will help alot..

Alot of people complain on the regulator with this gun, and how its very inconsistant. This was working fine, then at the end of the day I turned it on, and it wasnt working good, It seemed as if the eyes were turned off, and every 4 shots a ball would drop and you couldnt go fast at all. I looked at the HPR gauge and the thing was past the 600!!, It turns out one of my seals blew, but I just sent it in to ICD and got a brand new regulator and everythings working great.
Conclusion: Great gun, I give it a 9 cause of the reg
Rating:
9 out of 10

Read my review about how to zero out the regulators. That is called 'creeping' when the regs go up all of a sudden. They blow your seals and everything. Do what I said in my review for it and it shouldnt happen again. Zeroing it out just means you are letting pressure into the gun little by little.


If you do what I said every few times you hook the tank up, it shouldnt happen.

No, that wasnt the problem. My seal in the reg blew, causing the reg to creap. I zerod the reg in 3 times but it was the seal.

the easiest way to put in the battery is to take out the right clamshell.
it takes a little longer but u dont run the risk of pinching wires.
