Indian Creek Designs Naughty Dog FreeStyle FS-7 Reviews
i shot this gun twice, the first time he had a pepper stick, it was comparable to angels, shot as fast and as accurate with pepper stick, but being the rich snob he is he got so many upgrades he ruened it, first he got a virtue, right, then he got another freak barrel kit, his 5th one, he got new eyes, stupid, and downgraded to an eggy,and more, half of the accesories he got decreased the guns capapbility, so he put the eggy and eyes and virtue board and some more stuff on his ion
this kid is so spoild he has 3 angels, one Indian Creek Designs Naughty Dog FreeStyle FS-7, and like 5 ions, he does go paintballing quite a lot though, (if u were wondering his dad won powereball when it was very high so he gets whatever he wants)
There really are no necessary upgrades that you may need, but a aftermarket asa and barrel would be nice. also, some people might not like the grips.
ICD's quality control
When I opened the box, I was in awe. This gun is amazingly light, and the milling and anodizing is very clean. The trigger is amazing. It's 4 way adjustable so it can suit nearly anybody.
The stock barrel is a little short, but it is quite accurate with the right paint size. I adjusted the trigger to the way I like it, and I can easily walk with this trigger. The marker is only 2 pounds, and it is very small. The feedneck is great. It's a twist lock. The grips are quite comfortable. The asa is okay. I wish the asa came with a bleeder so I don't have to dryfire or take off the tank to release the pre-loaded air. The regulator is okay. At the chrono, I get about +- 10. It seems kind of bad, but on the field, it shoots strings. One thing I hate about the freestyle is balancing the regs. It's not really a weakness, and it's actually quite easy, but I don't really like to do it.
Overall, this gun is great. To me, freestyles are underrated. This gun has very little kick, great speed, and decent efficiency. Since not everything is perfect, I give it a 9.
HPR but stock isnt too bad.
Barrel, stock is actually pretty good.
Simple to Maintain
Simple to use
A touch inefficient even with the HE bolt
After using previous freestyle which impressed me a great deal. I have now own the second best gun out there IMO. The freestyle 7 is a very fast and smooth marker with literally no problems to work out. When setting up the marker its a simple 15 minutes to read the manual to learn about the regs, After that you will have your gun ripping like crazy.
The ND Freestyle 7 has an amazing trajectory and crazy ball on ball accuracy. The consistency is also pretty impressive stock. After the case or so break in period its about +-5 on the chrono, but to be honest the freestyle doesnt shoot like an inconsistent marker, the balls always fly very true and go right where you want it.
The gun is very simple to maintain, all you have to do is put in some lube, nothing else has to be done and it couldnt be simpler. Anothr very good feature is the gun seems to want to rip immediately instead of gradually speeding up. The gun has no kick and shoots very smooth.
The onyl thing with this marker I dont like but isnt a big deal for me is efficiency. It gets about 3 pods and a hopper off a 45/45 about about 1000+ shots off a 68. Its not horrible but back guys may want to take a 72 out onto the field if they plan on shooting more then 7 pods.
I gave it a 10 because they dont have 9.8. the .2 goes in the efficiency area. Other then that i feel this gun has absolutely no problems. It is very fast, very reliable, has never chopped one ball the entire time i used it, has never broken down, has no kick, very easy to maintain and its very easy to handle on the field. Best gun for the money if not easily one of best guns out there period.

Can keep going shot just bout every high end gun out there sept some Private Label ones such as the PL egos...
None Comes with great board stock regs seem to be fine just get dif reg if you dont like marcro fitting in the middle of the reg. The stock barrel is awesome no one likes them I have 2 the on I got with this one and my old ndfsp one they are the only barrels I use. New tank prob dont be using a steel tank on this. Maybe the bolt if you need more the 1200 shots a game.
Well I just turned it to psp and let a pod go through it in a few seconds. Was very nice little kick and noise best marker I have ever shot! If you love to waist paint in a back bunker you will need obviously a 68/45 and maybe the new HR1 bolt however I doubt u need the HR1. Been playing with the nice scythe style trigger. Anno is terrific.
2004 mech cocker - cant compare
angel hot pink g7 - almost as good just slower in my opinon
ndfs7 silver w/ blue accents. future upgardes will have next week cp reg, cp 2 piece barrel, Vlocity loader, 47ci 45 k crossy, hr1 bolt mod.
hr1-not needed but it is very nice, new barrell stock ones fine but not perfect, reg - some drop off when going fast (18-29bps range), vlocity- your gonna need a fast loader for this bad boy (would not suggest egg. mines to slow)
The size of this marker is truly incredible, without the barrel its the size of my hand! Its is amazingly easy to maneuver, and play tight.
The weight is average @ 2.2 pounds but it feels much less, personally i would rather not spend more money on a gun that weighs less but performs half as good.
-------Out Of The Box Tuning-----
As my Friend said lower in the page if you don't know how learning to tune can be a hassle, but you get used to it rather fast.
This gun is insanely fast. and that's really all there is to say. It is the easiest guns ive ever shot for ripping ropes on semi auto...which bring me to my next point.
Nox reloaded has 7 completely customizable modes of fire, including psp ramping, nppl capped semi, nxl auto, linear ramping. Each mode has an infinite way of customizing them. bps cap, ramp start, paint debounce, mechanical debounce, debounce,bypass rof and everything. This board is incredible and i will not be upgrading soon.
1300 shot off a 68 45k tank with no upgrades. In my opinion that plenty. With the hr1 you get 1400 to 1500. It is a gas hog when dryfiring though.
The looks of this gun are incredible the milling and anodizing is perfect. pictures do not serve these guns justice whatsoever. If you purchase this gun get ready for alot of compliments.
Overall this gun is incredible and i could not be happier with my purchase. 10/10
A little hard to tune and program.
The first thing i noticed about this gun when i got it was that it was light and small. when i found the box, the first thing i thought was"there is no way the gun is that small!" well the next week i went to paint games plus to get it tuned, but theier techs werent in, so me an my teamate(got the same gun, invert colors from mine)asked for a N2 tank to see if we could tune them ourselves, and we did. took us bout 45 min, then we tested them with paint. they ripped! but you need to keep the eyes on always, or the chop a lot. the board takes a little bit to figure out, but it gets easier.its easiest to order this gun from Murder Inc, best service for this gun and fastest shipping. ask for chris.
EDIT: fordot to mention that the gun now comes with NOX Reloaded and the HE(High Efficency) Bolt
excellent product, ICD made up for the freestyle pro,get if u can dont pass it up.

NDv7 Freestyle, NOX Reloaded, Sidewinder HP reg, CP 14" barrel, Nitroduck 45/45 adjustable tank, Empire B Reloader, CP tank ASA
Eventual bolt upgrade to increase efficiency
Sidewinder HPR (more comfortable then stock reg)
VERY fast, VERY smooth operation, AMAZING performance
First off, this marker is impressive. Its VERY similar to the v7 and if you've read my v7 review, you'll understand what I'm talking about:
The differences between the v7 and the NDV7 are small, but present:
This marker, like the v7 is pretty much out of the box perfect. Very little needs to be done and with the eventual release of a Efficiency kit, the marker will be efficient too. Right now the NDv7 efficiency and such is identical to the stock v7, so there is not much to talk about there. Most people are getting around 4 pods and a hopper off a 45/45, which is better then the older markers.
The V7 and NDV7 are both going to change the way ICD is seen in the paintball world. ICD has had problems in the past with visibility, now they really have no excuse! Between these two markers, ICD will hopefully gain customers more then ever before and thats the main goal! The more money ICD makes, the more they can design an even BETTER freestyle! Maybe next time efficiency won't be a problem.
Amazing product, Amazing price, What is better???
10 out of 10
