Reply To: FX Independence, Webley Paradigm ??
I get similar accuracy out of my .22 Independence. I can’t shoot it as well as Jonnes but, it keeps up with my tuned 400 out to 75yds. What you’ll gain by losing the bottle, is weight. That’s about the only thing I’d want to see changed on the Independence. Well, that and optional open sights.
For about the same price there’s also the Indy bullpup hybrid available from FX. AoA shows it as actually being heavier than the Independence but, it might carry easier in the woods with the shorter design.
