    Does anyone have any info on this new gun. I’ve searched the Internet for info to no avail. Looks to be an all in one air rifle. Think this is going on the wish list.

    Since I saw it in AoA’s website I called and asked, I was told that hopefully by September. 

    Yea, the line of people that want one goes around the block.

    Same here. Didnt get specifics though. I want the full assortment of barrels and magazines with the respective moderators for each. No difinitive price point on that. Although I thought I was reading somewhere and saw someone mention 300 additional per barrels / caliber. If that was the case, I would only get 2 calibers. .25 & .30

    The impact looks like it came out of Megatrons arm. 😆

    I’m sure the extra barrel & moderator won’t be cheap, I too had thought of getting two calibers, but $300 isn’t bad.  I thought of getting it in a .22 & .30 caliber. (I have no experience with anything bigger than .22 cal.)

    We may not see this thing till next year. I’d like mine in .177 & .25 but wonder about the hassle in adjustment going from an 8 to 25+ grain pellet.

    There are probes that need to be swapped out also. The wheel has a 5 position power adjustment in it too. See, I have 6-7k of .177 sitting around that I normally do not shoot, so that is one of the reasons I wanted the full assortment of barrels for this specific gun.. I doubt I would ever use the .20 though.

    When I visited AOA this past winter I asked about the mechanics of changing calibers. As I remember the conversation it was not just simply changing the barrel and probe one also had to make additional adjustments. However, I do not remember the specifics.

    I think what I might do since the BOBCAT i ordered is backordered. I should just transfer the money onto the IMPACT since the projected date for impact is in August. The bobcat is projected to be available in 3 weeks. To me thats basically august at that point. 

    Anyone have any solid info on the extra calibers?

    Also, can we change the name of this thread to WAITING LIST? How many people already pre ordered?

    Ok, so I got in touch with AoA again. :angry:

    story is, (Paraphrasing) FX takes off whole month of JULY. No way august is a realistic date according to them. Late September / October at the absolute earliest. Even then, they would be surprised if it is dropped that early this year. Barrels – a barrel from FX sells for 250/300 for a naked barrel.  Barrel with shroud, 350 plus. Now with a probe and additional ‘stuff’ to swap out the probe, could be in the 400ish range. Speculation that it WILL ship with a hard case. All this is just vapor right now till there is official word and releases by FX. 

    .25 & .30 in black with spare mags pre ordered. 

    Pre order is going like this. -> online order form, put the impact and caliber you want. NOTHING IS CHARGED NOW> . When they have the official word from FX, they will contact you and ask if you are still ‘in’ and charge a 500 deposit. 

    Wanted an approximate # of people in front of me and I was told a ‘stack’/ – I liked the game stores. They would say that you are #65 of 300 pre orders and we only get 100 at a time per shipment. SO you could have a realistic expectation of how long you would have to wait. 

    I was reassured that there should be plenty of Bobcats in this order that is supposed to hit them from FX in the next 10 days though. Hope it isn’t a pipe dream. I still need to get my scope research in high gear. 

    Thats all I have right now.

From Wikipedia:  Sweedish Holidays.  
    Most employees in Sweden are able to choose when to have their vacation, but most people have at least a three- or four-week vacation during the summer, often in July and early August. These weeks may in some sense be considered as de facto holidays with few employees at work.”
    Looks like Husqvarna and Ikea may also fall a bit behind. :)

    No date given. Just an estimation round fall/early winter.
