    It's nice that a barrel that short can be that accurate at 50 and 100 yards.

    Nice…a compact, powerful, and quiet performer!  Can anyone say sub-moa 😜  Curious to here from Steve if the wind (or lack-there-of) played a role in the 100y group, or if the Wildcat Compact is really that good.  

    As he mentioned – if you live in Brasil, and are in the market for an airgun, check out our buddy Marcos of MPLA Airguns 

    Otherwise you can find one at Pyramyd Air and/or many of other fine sponsors.

    Another great review. Your technique, video quality and sound just keep getting better and better. You did mention about the mags having an issue when indexed too fast, but kinda glossed over that. I’d like to hear more about that in order to maintain your objectivity for us that really count on your reviews. Thanks Steve.

    As far as barrel length versus accuracy, that’s yet another misconception about rifles in general. It’s been scientifically proven time and time again that length has nothing to do with accuracy…  ;)

    For sure helped.  I'm sure ya noticed that when it come up from 0 to 1.5 mph, that 5th shot drifted the group from .51" to .82" 😉

    Thanks for another informative review! I am just getting in to airguns and am watching a lot of videos. Thinking about taking the plunge into PCPs and all the info helps!

    It wasn't ever a factor in my testing so gave it the appropriate amount of attention.  The cycling speed shown in the vid's "speed/maneuverability test" didn't cause it,  but if ya cycled it "speed silhouette" fast, as mentioned, the mags momentum will over carry it.

    Thanks Steve.  I only mentioned it because I saw numerous older Wildcats in EBR Speed Silo and RMAC Speed Challenge.  I guess this version of Wildcat wouldn’t be good for that sort of competition….

    methinks that grin was a rye smile as Steve realised the fifth shot ruined a wonder group, 4 out of 5, .51".

    Can someone enlighten me,

    Steve mentions 31" and 33" for the standard .25 wildcat, was the MK1 .25 not 36"?.

    Is the new REG truly adjustable, IE can it be turned down to shoot 16 grain GTOs at 700fps for close range barn work (ratting), and they turned up again to clout rabbits at 100m , without screwing the REG (rifle) up.

    honest questions, thanks.

    I think the speed silo guys always modded theirs.  There's an o-ring mod I've heard of that stops the over-rev so to speak.  Steve

    Yes.  This has the AMP Regulator, same as the Impact and Crown.  It's fully adjustable from the outside.

    Now there is fly in the ointment, was and still am on the Continuum. But this makes one think more than a little.
