Vu Hoang / Desert Fox Twistlock Barrels

Here are two barrels that were custom machined by Vu Hoang. Vu is known for his innovations and styling on Autocockers and Automags while working at Desert Fox Paintball and later Bad Boyz Toys. He also played on Team Image, Aftershock and “Bo Peep and his Flock of Sheep.”

Some players swear by Vu’s barrels and it’s been difficult to track down any examples. These came to me recently with a few others and in this quick video we examine how they are built and styling.

The press fit / glued example was one of Vu’s popular modifications. It’s unknown if the center portion on the top barrel is hard chromed steel or stainless. The center portion could also have been made from combining a Boa or J&J barrel with bull barrel segments?

The second barrel looks like a turned down bull barrel that likely came stock on an early Automag and was turned down and ported at Desert Fox.

These barrels likely date to the mid 1990s and Desert Fox was out of San Jose, California.
