    Just a curious question: how come FX doesn't build its mags to rotate counter clockwise so that you can have a visual indication of how many pellets are left in the magazine? As a design it would be a lot more intuitive. Please FX rotate RIGHT!

     

    Thanks

    Side-Shot magazines are shipping with the new Impact now.  I wonder if they have the difference you're talking about.

    You know – After shooting over 110,000 rounds out of 4 different FX rifles, I have to agree with you on this basic premise.  When I received my first FX rifle nearly 5 years ago, a .22 Independence, I could not believe how clumsy it felt to load the magazine.  But after a few hundred rounds, the loading procedure became second nature, to where I don't even think about it any longer.  Not that it is an excuse for the clumsy design, but it does get better with use.

    Side shot rotate clockwise when being fired but due to their oversize window they enable you to see the pellets as they come to the action. Pre Mark2 mags dont extend past the left side of the gun limiting your view. This is not the case with side shot mag.

    I agree. These small details differentiate good products and great ones.
