“Scott_MCT”Guys, I never really thought about the demand of the Impact vs. the RAW.  But with that said, I would assume FX has many more employees as evidenced in the FX and RAW factory videos.  RAW has like 7, maybe 10 employees?  In the FX factory video is was clear they has way more employees and a much larger factory.  I’m glad both FX and RAW have big lead times for the right reasons which is they produce awesome products.  I’m just questioning the big gap in lead times on the Impact, but I might be wrong.  Glad my little WildCat didn’t have the lead time of the Impact.

FX also has many more models to make in their factory (or factories). 

I don’t think staff would be the only issue (although it’s probably not easy to hire high quality air gunsmiths on mass). There would be a bottle-neck on the machinery for certain components and a limit to how many new high end CNC machines they could buy (they are very expensive). It’s only the Impact that suffers such long delays.

I was wondering if FX plans to drop some of their less popular models to refocus resources. They currently have way more than any other high end brand. It has to make things harder for them.
