A few more pics of the new FX Crown at IWA for you guys. 
Personally theres a few things I dont like.. the over sized 18 shot magazine is one.. Why.. just why? I sure hope there is a smaller one to fit or a single shot tray. It is just way too big for many reasons. The height alone means you cant fit low rings to keep your scope centered close to the bore line.. cheek placement with a scope that high would simply be wrong unless you opt for the “Optional adjustable cheek piece” and finding quality super high scope rings to fit that 11mm dovetail would be a challenge, its a good thing that the FX also make those massively over height Zero Limit rings huh?  
What does all this mean? Loads more $$$  in FXs pocket after the initial rifle purchase.. and dont forget the optional “match trigger”… dont you feel a $1900 should already have a match trigger?  All very clever up selling marketing on FXs behalf but I’ll pass thanks.

All be it a very pretty little rifle, unless it fits a smaller mag that doesnt require a ridiculously high scope fitment and over extended cheek piece, I would rather a different platform to test the new X barrel so I sure hope they extend that across the FX range.
