Thundercat (slightly better)
Puma (a lot better)
Piranha (about the same)
Piranha (early model), beaver tail rail, J & J ceramic
Puma, twin tanks with Smart Parts on / off valves, Smart Parts A / A barrel
Barrel & expansion chamber with bottom line.
The markers made by Indian Creek are all quality machined. They are extremely reliable and perform well. They have a slightly complex tuning ability but this only adds to their reliability in all forms of weather conditions.
You have to be a little mechanically inclined to properly utilize the tuning capability of the Indian Creek's markers (Alleycat, Thundercat, & Puma) However, after a little practice I believe anyone can do it.
I just about wore my Alleycat out so I bought a Thundercat for a backup. I haven't had to use my Thundercat yet because my Alleycat just won't die. I have also picked up a used Puma for a sweet price and I'm starting to tinker with it so I may never had the opportunity to use my Thundercat.
This is one durable gun, I purchased mine used and it's 3 years old but shoots like it was right out of the box. Reliability is also a big plus with this marker, if kept oiled up, you will never have any problems with it at all. It shoots accurately within a reasonable distance, but not a sniper gun. Looks great and will keep looking great because of it's diamond hard finish. It's a sweet gun.
It uses ICD threads so no spyder barrels on the alleycat.
Very few aftermarket parts for this gun, not that you NEED any but it's fun to customize your marker.
MUST be kept properly oiled
(Notice no proformance or real problems here)
This is a great gun, the best mid-range semi you can get, hands down. I am going to hold on to this marker for a long time because it rocks.
Tippman custom 98, pirahna sts, gt comando 2, tippmann prolite, spyder tl
all blow back markers
alley cat LT (limited) factory 4 stage x-chamber, micro line, double triger, raised sight rail, 45 grip frame, derlin bolt, factory black and green splash paint. MY upgrades are trigger job, 10" cp barrel (green) x-fighter drop forward, cmi inline r2000 regulator, remote.
none, except barrel. stock barrel is really not bad at all.
everything this is the sweetest blowback I've ever owned!! and the quietest around. you can adjust the vulosity and recock pressure so you save air and peak preformance. I don't have a rear bottle adapter on this model, like the picture above they get in the way of gripping your gun for comfort. Tippmann was my gun of choice but after using this CAT for a few months it's as reliable, way easier to field strip and smaller for those speed ball fields. I LOVE THIS GUN!!!!
Not a thing? except stock barrel would come lose at times.
You cannot buy a more realiable, field stripable, already upgraded blow back marker that can compare to the alley cat LT (limited). I promise. the paintball wizard has them for 180.00. BUY this GUN you will love it!!!!

smart parts all american
double triggr w/custom job
revolution w/x board
VERY RELIABLE gun and very good gun for the money. Anyone can use this gun and be happy with it regardless of past experience. I put a all american on this with a double trigger and some other tweaks and its about as good as it gets without going blow forward. I play on a 3 man team- the other two guys use an autococker and a defiant and this gun is still awesome.
ICD needs to make more available upgrades but besides that NOTHING
If you get the right upgrades for this gun then it is awesome. Very reliable. Very fast trigger if you tweak it. Does great on CO2 usage too.
typpy 98 with full boar rear cocking; DYE 16" barrel
Very smooth shooting marker
Shoots very straight for distance
Good fire rate on hinged trigger
Small and light
Great stock barrel
Convenient gas setup: bottom or rear
Gun works well on gas or liquid CO2
Positive velocity adjustment through rear spring
Nice two piece main body construction
Excellent service from ICD over the phone and by Email
Bolt and valve are fragile. If you don't oil them copiously, the valve can shear off the top, and the bolt, which is made of Delrin and metal, can break in half. Oil your marker!
Recock / power screws on the side of the gun: DON'T TOUCH THEM! You can only screw up the marker that way. If you do mess with that stuff, READ THE MANUAL!
If your marker has no rear bumper behind the bolt, there is a serious trigger kick-back whenever the marker is shooting liquid CO2.
A great marker. I've had one for a couple years as a backup to my Tippmann guns, but it doesn't get much use since my Tippys never break down.
Alleycat II with remote,expansion chamber, and boomstick
My gun was really rough and jerky until i took the time to resaerch and properly tune it with the 3 different gas settings. The settings the manual gives are ok but there are ways to make it perform a lot better. now its really smooth and i would take it over any model 98 or rebel.
Kinda heavy,not a lot of upgrades but what else do you want??
This is the best gun for the price range if you take the time to tune and hone the gas settings, if you just want to play whenever and dont care about ur equip then this gun can suck.
I have a 32degrees Rebel,a Sheridain Jackal and this Indian creek alley cat
i dont have much on the alley cat but i have a remote and other tings for my rebel and a bottom line adapter for my Jackal i mainly use my rebel and im still deciding on a palmer Nasty- Typhoon
Get a new barrel if you can find one a remote works and better trigger
it is not a bright color , it is a good gun for a beginer but i would not hold keep using it over a better gun such as a rebel, it can be dissasembled easilly with a new barrel and a doulble fingered triger id be ok its pretty silent atleast mine is
it doesnt fire smoothly mine has broke 4 times in 6 months leaving me broke but it was good for starters but i recomend a rebel with a few nice upgrades the trigger is starting to break on mine and its not two old
with the upgrades you can get its nice for beginers who are just getting into paintball
1.) The best feature I find on this gun is the dual tank positions.
2.) It is very durable because of its strong construction.
3.) Thatz all
1.) Because of this durable strong construction, it is very heavy when compared to other makers.
2.) Very difficult to find upgrades for an alley cat, even on its own web site, everything is geared more towards the Desert Fox.
3.) Short barrel is not accuarte.
3a.) Very difficult to find aftermarket barrels.
4.) Loud bolt action
Considering the price it is a good gun for a newbie or an inexperienced player just looking to get a gun. The duel tank positions makes it compact in one position and stable in the other. Personally, from my seven years of experience, I would not recommend this gun to anyone serious about paintball. There are other gun in the same price range that are lighter and more customizable.
