    FX Airguns hereby releases to our dealers, other interested parties and the general public, notice that, effective immediately, Airguns of Arizona (AoA) is no longer an authorized FX Airguns dealer. Due to extenuating circumstances and a clear conflict of interest FX has decided to end the relationship.  FX Airguns wishes AoA well in their future endeavors and their business.

    FX Airguns products previously sold by AoA and future sales it may have of existing FX Airguns inventory will of course be covered by applicable warranty. 

    There are many other FX Airguns dealers in the U.S. to accommodate all future purchases and other needs.  FX Airguns dealers receive training on an on-going basis and are available for the customers needs. FX Airguns USA is also available for warranty, non-warranty, and airgun part needs.

    FX Airguns is committed to supporting our dealer network and completely backs our authorized dealers. We have made sure that all sales for FX Airguns (except for repair parts & merch) go solely through an authorized FX dealer and FX Airguns does not undercut our dealer network by selling directly to customers. We hold in high esteem the value airgun dealers provide, and work vigorously to support their efforts.

    We are committed to growing the sport of airgunning. We want to see airguns in the hands of all happy, competent shooters, regardless of the make or manufacturer. We appreciate the hard work and effort of all FX Airgun dealers who spread the word about our sport and whose major goals is to ensure their customers have the highest quality equipment to suit their needs and budget.  We are grateful for all FX Airguns dealers, especially their efforts to promote the sport of airgunning and further the FX Airguns brand.

    FX released a statement AoA is no longer an authorized dealer? Most times a dealer drops a manufacturer. Interesting …

    Out of respect for the crew over at Airguns of Arizona I have lock this topic to give them a chance to reply.  After that I'll reopen this topic for discussion.

    I'm incredibly curious to what happened with AOA and FX. I've seen resellers drop a brand but rarely the other way around.

    There is a official and currently locked thread on this until AOA responds directly to it. So I suggest we all keep an eye on that and not spread rumours.

    If you read the FX announcement AOA will be selling off inventory until exhausted.

    Interesting but I have seen many times when a retailer/dealer doesn’t follow map pricing or undercutting other deslers they can be terminated from carrying that product line. 

    AOA also imports, distributes and retails Daystate and Brocock. Maybe FX wanted their products to be equally represented as more and more airgun retailers are popping up. 

    Who knows but I’m sure the forums gossip will keep things spicy! 🔥

    I hope they have a clearance sale as I got some money burning a hole in my pocket.

    Perhaps customer service might have something to do with it.

    It’s no coincidence that FX opening their own distribution & service center, AoA going all in with Daystate/Brocock, and the rise of Utah Airguns have all happened at the same time.

    We’ll probably just get a corporate-speak explanation and never know what really happened but the writing has been on the wall for a while.

    When FX announced the distribution/service center last year, I figured this was coming.  AoA was the exclusive importer until that time and having both didn't make sense.

    I doubt we’ll ever get a real explanation either. It’s not in the industries best interest to air their dirty laundry on the internet for all to see.

    Hard to say.. I know when I called AoA a few times they wanted to sell me a $0.07 oring for $5.99 and +$7.50 for shipping.

    MAYBE: " Folla the Dolla" may provide the answer..

    Maybe FX USA in NC is going to assume the role of US distributor. I never understood this dual role anyway.
