    Trigger is quite nice but a little heavy. When I looked closer it appears as if the trigger weight grub screw (behind the trigger blade),  is missing.  I would be grateful if someone else with a Bobcat MK2 coiuld photo their trigger unit so i can check that this is normal.  Thanks

    please share what you “figured out”?  Was the screw missing?  were you able to “lighten” the trigger?

    Hi FunGun,  The metal plate which holds the trigger, seems to be a “reused” (not a bespoke) plate and the threads are visible because if that plate was used on another FX gun, then those holes would normally be used for grub screws.  But it is in fact a red-herring.  To modify trigger pull you have to remove the tube and take the workings out from the stock.  The real adjustment screw is underneath the Regulator gauge.  But the clearance is so narrow that even a shallow Allen key will not fit, so I gently altered it using needle nose pliers and now it shoots amazingly well.  Whilst I had the stock off, I fitted an Atlas rail for a bipod (thanks to the YouTube instructions of Rolaids Bench).  I did have to modify the advice a little as the Atlas Rail only accepted 5mm threaded bolts, but now its ready to go.  I really like the fact that the bottle retains its pressure when detaching.

    The Scope is a Vortex Diamondback 3x12x42 BDC on FX No-Limits adjustable rings. 
    Have got the FX Stackable moderator for it, just waiting for a MaleToMale Thread adaptor, to attach it to the shroud. But I was amazed at how quiet it is already. It is much quieter than my TX200HC and I had to Chrono it to double-check that it was firing at the right speed (890fps AirArms Field .25) because it felt too light and quiet to be a FAC gun. Really Back-Yard friendly (noise-wise), although it has bent my metal targets out of shape at 25m. :)
