Info on Fox Carbine

Does anyone out there have info on Fox Carbines? They were made by Tri-C Corp in approx the late 60's or early 70's, in Meriden Ct. Fires from an open bolt, (mine is semi-only)--(they were made select also)removeable buttstock,made in 45 and 9mm. Would like a better idea on dates of mfg and how many were made, along with an approx $value. I have one nib,low 3 digit serial#,unfired.TIA

Is that the one with the combination lock built in to the receiver? I saw one for sale about 18 mos. ago, on one of the auction sites. The thing was listed for $500 or so (IIRC) and was relisted for several months without being sold.

I doubt this helps answer your question, but that's all I got.

I'm not familiar with the Fox carbine, however; if it fires from an open bolt, you might want to see if BATF has declared it a machinegun. Most, if not all open bolt guns were declared machineguns back in the early '80's.

It should be noted that BATF has never said that just the open bolt feature makes it a machinegun, just that all current open bolt guns are "easily converted."

If it in fact has been declared a machinegun, you can donate it to your local law enforcement agency, or strip the gun down and hand in the receiver.

I may be interested in it if you decide to sell. Let me know if you want to part with it. I had one as a kid so it brings back some nostalgia. They are not that accurate due to the open bolt. As for ATF, thay are legal just as other pre-81 open bolts are. I still have the manual for mine from when I was a kid.

Dr Dremel...interesting name!! I wasn't aware that they came with a manual..the only literature I have is a piece of paper that contains info on one side and pics of the various attachments that were made to go with it. I got mine from where I used to work, my old boss was a distributor for them,he had several piled on top of a filing cabinet, nib. Took some nagging but I finally scored eventually!! Any way of posting the manual??? Where are u located also? Small world..never know???

Hello.
do a search for DEMRO they made the Tac-1 and the WASP.. one had the folding stock snd poly stock and the other had the removeable tommy gun stock.
I had both and the parts were interchangeable(bolt face ,BBL, and mag block.
one used grease gun mags and the other used sten mags.
The Tac-1 was .45 and had the combo lock and came factory in a brief case. it broke bown into 4 parts and fit into pre cut foam in the case//stock, reciever group BBL and mag. it was a nice set up..
prices are low for these ,you must find a collector to get what they are worth..that said when you can find one. $650 to $850 seems to be about it.. I have seen them listed as high as $1200 to $1800
but you know how that go,s

Fox was first and then became Demro.
J.P.

I live in Meriden CT. I have a excellent condition FOX Carbine, .45 acp, removable stock, ser # 69, comes with about a dozen mags. I have not attempted to fire it. It has the combination lock on the left set to zero. It looks like Eagle Mark 1 from Fox Carbines' website. It's pre ban 1994, make an offer. Photos available by email.

This thread is over seven years old and most of the participants are no longer active, including DrDremel who hasn't been active in over four years... but you could see that for yourself.

To answer one question, Wikipedia says it is civilian legal, despite the open bolt, one of the few open bolt guns you can get legally without the $200 fee.

Demro TAC-1 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

As I recall, open bolt guns made before 1986 are considered unregistered machine guns, but at the same time legal, sort of a grandfather clause. If you can prove it was made before 1986, and you haven't altered it, it's OK.

The gun looks like a fun piece.

Did a puter change, been gone awhile to say the least. Conversed with webmaster on the Fox carbine website back in 2014 who went by the name of Stephen King. I need to purchase recoil buffers and wanted to pass on serial # info along with some era literature. Website is no longer active and I am unable to contact. Does anyone have any inside info? I see the serial # base was just updated 1-8-17, so someone's out there? TIA Al
