    Helga says Hello and Happy New Year to all! She wants to show off her new cheek rest cover that matches her tank bra…shameless! 😆 And also her new mono-pod butt stock from Ballistic Specialties…I can attest to the fact that it is extremely well made of aluminum and the attention to even the smallest details amazed me. True perfection! 

    Now to the good part…I am a power head at heart and am always looking for ways to stretch the limits of things. Some guys buy these Impacts and just love them as is and that's fine, but if you are like me and want the most power and accuracy possible then I highly recommend a power plenum kit for your Impact MKII. It allows you to set up your gun for high power configurations at the lowest regulator setting possible. This has an added benefit of much higher shot count and far less stress on the platform.

    Speaking of regulators, which are the heart and soul of all pcp airguns….in the past some may remember that in the past I have criticized the poor performance of the regulators used by certain manufacturers in their pcp airguns. Well I want guys the world over to know that I am absolutely thrilled and amazed by the exceptional performance of the regulators FX is using in this Impact MKII airgun! This regulator is truly amazing in several ways…it can truly be adjusted up or down while under full pressure without any ill effects whatsoever! It is super easy to access the adjustment screw using a ball end Allen key without the need to remove the trigger guard or trigger assembly.

    I normally test things way beyond what a normal person would do, and without being specific suffice to say that I absolutely brutalized this regulator in an attempt to push it to failure, just to see what if anything would give. After extreme testing for an extended period of time I was only able to cause the top o-ring on the adjustment screw to fail…and to my delight I was able to replace the o-ring with a new one and have the gun back up and running in just minutes. Here is a picture of the o-ring that failed only after pushing it way beyond its limits:

    Something else that is absolutely exceptional about the Impact MKII regulator is the way it keeps its setting. I set the regulator at 140 bar using my Digital Pressure Gauge one afternoon, and just to see what would happen I left it like that over night. The next day I got up and lo and behold the Digital Gauge was still sitting dead on 140 bar! Absolutely unbelievable to say the least!

    Now to a couple of her other good attributes…some of you know of my love for shooting standing offhand. I am not exaggerating when I say that for me this Impact MKII is the most generous and forgiving rifle I have ever had the pleasure to shoot offhand. It comes to my shoulder and points so perfectly and naturally that I am able to just hold rock steady and almost like I am dreaming I watch the shots land in the bullseye at 50 yards almost effortlessly! I wouldn't trade this airgun for all the tea in China! As a matter of fact, I have been telling all my airgun friends to sell off all their other airguns that they are not happy with and buy an Impact MKII. I know it is a lot of money, but it is something I wish I had bought a long time ago. Some of you may be aware of my love affair with my old .25 Wildcat Original, but believe me it doesn't even come close to owning an Impact MKII! I just hope my wife doesn't find out that her wedding ring she somehow lost is in the pawn shop right now! 😆 All I can say is if you don't have one yet…GET AN IMPACT!!!

    All the best, CHUCK

    I bet my flex .30 will outshoot your impact any day! Oh, you don't think so, well let's have a shoot off at 100yds?

    He said he likes to shoot standing offhand at 50 yds. Why not challenge him to that since you're the challenger ?

    I own an Impact Mk2. It has a .25 700mm slug liner. It's a decent gun, but IMHO lacks simple ergonomics. It's bulky, and a bit awkward. It's a good bench gun, yes, and very accurate when tuned correctly. 

    Is it great to shoot offhand?? Not really. It isn't balanced well, and just feels like a large, bulky gun… Kind of defeats the purpose of the bullpup. Try offhand shooting a Taipan Vet Shorty, or Edgun R5M/Lelya. These are the offhand rifles which absolutely shine… and equally accurate. 

    I'll probably catch hell for saying this, but the Impact is really over-hyped. This is my opinion, from having owned all the above… and as we know, opinions are like a$$holes, everybody has one.

    I am pleased that you love your impact but it’s a shame that I don’t love mine, it’s ok but that’s about it. To me, it doesn’t feel expensive or particularly well made, too many little rattles and twangs going on in the block for my liking. Some parts of the design are genius, others are terrible,   I like the idea behind the impact more than the gun itself.

    i don’t regret buying mine for a second and would happily recommend an impact to anyone who wants one so long as they don’t believe all the hype surrounding it. I won’t be selling mine but I wouldn’t buy another either.
