Reply To: Fx impact just arrived!! Quality control poor!!
If I can get the barrel exchanged, and it shoots better, I will learn to deal with the extra complexity. The finish on the cheek piece is also not great, but that is a non-issue for me, since I removed it early on, so I could get a sight picture with the medium Hawke rings that I am using. I also cut a hole in the gun case, so the barrel can stick through a couple inches….I don’t need to remove the barrel from the gun now, which will prevent wear and more possible problems; also may help hold my zero point…. I cut a 2″ section of round foam that slips on over the barrel tip, to hide and protect it. Also re-cut the foam inside, so It takes the gun with the big optics installed.
