    I’ve been shooting the heck out of my Wildcat ever since I got it (1st shipment). So, I decided to run some chrony strings today. 
    Of the four 10-shot strings I ran, the averages were…
    900.55 FPS
    6.41     ES
    2.15     SD  If I drop the one string that was waaay off,(3.46) I come up with a SD of only 1.71! 
    Exact King Diablo .25   25.39gr
    No wonder I’m getting so many “1 shot, 1 kill”!
    I think it’s really quite safe to say it has settled in nicely! :) 

    Happy Shooting,
    Tom

    Hello, And thank you for the great info. I received my .25 wildcat on Monday 9/28 and immediately mounted a scope and mag holder in slot. It was getting dark so I shot it 3 time and noticed that there is no 2 stage on the trigger. It just has one very long pull and then fires. I really like a short crisp trigger so it looks like I will be having some get to know time. Do you have any pointers that will help on the adjustment besides the pics and DO NOT TOUCH SCREW “B”…..LOL

Jim,

    Congrats on your new Wildcat! My only advice (other than what I posted earlier) is to just keep messing around and eventually, you’ll get it just right. Good luck!

    Thanks Scott
    I found the CADD rendering of the trigger set up and now it make total sense. I have installed a jewel trigger in my AR and custom tuned triggers on my Savage FV112, Rem BDL and Encore. Almost forgot….Triggers on 2240, 1377 and a custom Disco. I installed the deluxe trigger group from crosman on the three and polished all touching parts. It’s been raining here in UpState NY for two days now and now that I have the pics to go by I will use my 40ft indoor range to get trigger figured out on the WC.

    Thanks Again
    Jim

    Not sure I agree that the comments about how the Wildcat is affected by it’s light weight applies to all bullpups. The Wildcat is a full 2lb lighter than a lot of other PCP guns but it is unique in that respect. Most of the other bullpup are north of 7.5lb, just like most full sized rifles. The Pulsar is 9.5lb…

    The main difference with bullpups is in the balance. Traditional PCP rifles are often very front-heavy because of the position of the air reservoir. This makes  those PCP rifles very stable on a bipod when shooting from a bench rest. It also makes them suck when trying to shoot off-hand when you are hunting in the woods. I experience much greater stability shooting a center or rear balanced bullpup in every scenario except from a bench rest. Not having weight up-front and having more weight on my shoulder makes my aim far less shakey. 

    Trying to use a bipod or rest (that is designed for a front-weighted rifle) with a bullpup is not going to work as well. If you have to use your bullpup for benchrest paper punching, try moving the rest further back to where the weight is. I rest on the pistol grip on the few occasions when I rest a bullpup on a hard surface to shoot.

    If stable bench-rest shooting is a priority, i wouldn’t choose a bullpup as my first choice. They are clearly designed for hunting where quick shouldering is as important as accuracy. There is nothing to shoot at if you can’t get your gun on target quickly enough which is why I would never buy a Wolverine 303. Someone needs to tell Daystate about carbon fiber and titanium…

    I was all set to order a Wildcat as my next bullpup but the .25’s are on back order right now… I guess I’ll have to go with the Cricket this time but I’m disappointed. I really wanted something lightweight and these reviews made me want a Wildcat even more. 

    For left handers, try using the side lever with your right hand while holding the pistol grip with your left. It works really well with bullpups and allows for much quicker follow up shots. It will allow you to use all of the right-hand bullpups even more effectively that right handers.

    “FearnLoading”Thanks for sharing Tominco. Looks like we got a winner. Am sure the gun will do better once the regulator settles in a bit. Those out of line velocities should fall in line.  

    
Did your gun come with case or was it an extra?

    The Wildcat 25 has been a real joy to shoot. I received it early last week and so far I have not had the chance to stretch it’s legs beyond 25yds because of the weather and by the time get home from work, it’s too dark. Although stock, it still has a some bark to it. Louder than I expected it would be for a high end airgun.  It did come with 2 shroud extensions but I think Tominco’s youtube video of the Impact vs Wildcat depict the actual sound. 

    I’m sure it’s pretty easy to do, but just so I don’t make a mess of things, may I ask how do one go about removing the stock?

    HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE!

    Hey Dartagnan, to remove the stock there are 2 screws. Both on the bottom of the wildcat. One in front of the trigger and the other in the rear “hole” behind the thumb hole. Congrats on you new rifle. I have a 25 as well and its been a blast to shoot.
