@tactical Thanks for the tip on the Bobcat, yes the Boss has a demonstrated 100 meter performance. Would like to call you out on “dubious brands” The Edgun and the Cricket for example could have been called a “dubious brand” a few years ago before they were proven in the field by airgunners. Yes, some brands are heavily promoted by certain individuals and various forums (deservedly or not) but at the end the marketplace decides and most of us are smart enough to navigate between the bias and propaganda.
@glpalinkas: As far as FX quality control… I only own Daystate and Air Arms. But I know enough that older FX products such as the FX Royal 400, 500 are world class quality, and some others had their share of issues (Monsoon). At the end, the marketplace and resale values decide not the Forums and the individuals who are monetarily involved with certain products. Some of the newer brands and product lines will only show their real value with time when more people start using them. Could FX slip on QC? Yes, it can happen to all manufacturers, but I think based on the information available it’s hard to tell yet if that applies to the FX Impact or the Wildcat. It’s a personal decision to take the risk and buy a new product line based on prior experience with that company. One may decide to hold off for now, so in essence yes, like you said “voting with our dollars”, while others may go ahead at their comfort level. Based on what Michael wrote I gather that FX should know how many they sold and tracking how many had issues that rises to the level of QC or design issue. Again, the marketplace will decide and may be that’s when those who are less risk takers will decide to jump in to buy these new model lines.
