It is my understanding that US sold models are not FAC, as in, not 12pfe.  And that the standard 12fpe kit is for those US customers that want that configuration for their US spec’ed rifles.
I thought I read that the SHO kit gives you as much as 17pfe.

So what is the realistic stock fpe of a US model in .22 caliber?

On Pyramyd Air, they give .22 specs of 755fps with an 11.9gr pellet. Using those figures I can plug them into the formula to get fpe, but isn’t that a very light pellet for a .22? Who shoots an 11.9gr out of a .22 caliber? Seems misleading. I’m seeing mostly 15.x – 18.x being used with the .22.
