Some time ago, I put my name on the list for a FX Impact and in the interim read all the reports of problems which became too many to ignore. I also considered the high price of switching calibers in that gun so I canceled and ordered a 22 Royale which is an outstanding platform. Now that that the Crown has come out it has just about everything I was interested in about the Impact but with improvements and a much more realistic price point in switching calibers. I doubt I’ll buy multiple barrels to coincide with a given pellet though. That’s a cool feature but far less important to me than switching calibers. I called up AoA and put a deposit down and was told I was 2nd or 3rd on the list. I also found out that the first ones they receive will have the walnut stock. Right now, there’s not a lot of concrete info just yet in terms of configurations that they’ll be receiving. At least as of several days ago.
if this gun pans out, I may sell the 400 even though IMO, FX pretty much got everything right about this gun. I’ll definitely keep it long enough while I ensure the Crown performs as designed.
