    Will fixed power versions be something in the future?

    Definitely something we'd like to do. I think fixed power scopes are waaaay underrated!

    True.  Cheaper and clearer than variable scopes (less parts/lenses) and does the job well for a good range of targets.

    It's so cute, lol.  I really do like that one.

    This is much better. Feels light and is light.

    What brand is this one?  Amazingly light with a scope and mod…

    Like others said it, let it lead-in again with 50-100 shots so the lead builds up and provides an even surface.  Also, make sure the barrel is mounted securely.   Try a pellet that offers more resistance when feeding it in (larger head diameter)   Feed by hand.

    The maximum range where it can detect a small pellet is limited to a few feet.   You will will not be able to calculate BC from such a short distance. Adding a microwave horn antenna could extend the range but it would not be practical.

    I want it to register faster projectiles so I can buy one and also use it for my powderburners. Otherwise I need to buy another Shooting Chrony that works for both.

    The software is not setup for faster projectiles.  That can be changed   But there may be a hardware limitation.  The existing electronic circuit likely is not designed for much higher velocities.

    Thanks Michael.  Inspired me to look up the history behind it:  https://www.lothar-walther.com/history

    Indeed very impressive!    Now, if it would looks a little sexier!   Will it be made available?

    Warranty does have a monetary value.  In some cases it may be worth up to the value of the gun.  Would be advisable to confirm the details of the plenum self-install as far as the warranty is concerned.  If anything goes wrong with the gun after the self-install I am pretty sure there won't be an arbitrator or an expert-testimony available to prove that your install had nothing to do with any potential failures.   

    So even if you can break-down and reassemble your gun with a blindfold on under intense firefight it may be advisable for newer guns with considerable warranty left to pay the $125 difference ($300-$175).  Then again, can you place monetary value on the time spent waiting for the factory plenum-upgrade?

    Rubber mulch is the cheapest and most effective for me.  Works every time.

    Congrats!  First time that I saw one.  Looks all business and ergonomic.  I would definitely try the JSB, Baracuda, and AA pellets, and may be some H&N with various head sizes.  What does it weigh?

    So basically shoot faster and heavier projectiles and get a few more shots per fill is this the gist of this upgrade? 

    “Doubling” the energy to accommodate optimal velocity for heavier projectiles required for hunting or target shooting.

    And about a 40% increase in shot count for the .25.      Other than that…

    Is this plenum upgrade coming with all new Impacts now?  What about those Impacts that are still under warranty (is the upgrade free?)…or is this a separate "option" all together and not part of the standard model?   
     

    I assume for the first Gen Impact from 2016 this will work, but must pay for the kit.  

    Sent email to FX USA, received the same auto-reply.  But I am glad at least they have an auto-reply.

    Welcome to the forum!   Welcome to the Dark Side (PCP)…   :)

    Great story and thanks for your (NATO) service.  There are others from Sweden here.  Your English is much much better than my Swedish✌️ so don't worry about it.  Enjoy the interaction and glad to see you here.

    I don't think my wife would like if I go after cougars…     Plus she keeps telling me to get a bigger gun…

    Nice!  Need one!   How efficient is the offset moderator?  Can you (should you) fit an external moderator?
