    Are there any FX magazines that will work in different FX PCPs?

     

    Mod edit: moved to "other parts & accessories"

    I have an interest in that issue also.   The magazine that the Streamline uses is really a morfadyte.  (spelling)   Wind it backwards, turn it upside down put one pellet in ass backwards, tip it over while turning the cover slightly so the first pellet doesn't fall out then drop the other pellets in nose first while twisting the cover. I know how this crap happens.   The engineers were bored and decided to see who they could screw with that day and Fred the chief had a new stash of monkey hair and they all smoked it.  One reviewer had the balls to say "It's ok just need to get used to it."   No it sucks that,  this fine gun is saddled with that crappy magazine.

    My FX magazine works great.  Of course it's for a Wildcat and I guess that makes it a clip. Lol

    The WC magazine is the best.

    @blackdiesel – I'm not sure if I'm reading your question correctly but, the Royale series of rifles all use the same magazine. I'm referring to the "standard" size magazines. Those magazines will work in the impact as well. I think the Crown is the only one that uses a mirror image of the standard style of FX mag which makes it unique. Royale, Verminator, Streamline, Impact, Bobcat, Gladiator, Independence, indy, biathlon, T-12, and probably one or two more are all based off the same platform.

    It's always been my opinion that the FX mag is the one weak point to their system. I've even said it directly to Fredrik and Johan. But, I understand why they had to make it the way they did due to the way the rifles work. I wish there was another way though.

    Follow up.  Wildcat mags r good until the retainer o rings lose their grip.  I cant get mine to unscrew so that I can replace them.

    I've given up on impact mags.  Went side shot mags.  Expensive but great.  Wouldn't waste money ordering extra mags.  Go straight to the side shot.  Eay load, smooth chambering and lots of shots.

    Tom, I meant, as an example, can Streamline mags be used on Royales? Or can Impact mags be used on Crowns, etc.

    I'm considering ordering a Crown Magazine for my Impact and see if I can make it work. I'm left handed so I would prefer if the mag loaded from the left.

    @blackdiesel – Ok, that's how I read it. Yes. As I mentioned above, all those models can use the standard and mini magazines. The Crown and Impact magazines have a thicker area under the oval hole (backside) which means they will not work with the rest of the lineup. The Impact will accept other FX magazines although, it's not an ideal situation. The Crown has a dedicated "mirror image" design. As far as I know, there are no other magazines that will work with it and it will not work with any other rifles from the lineup.

    I contacted FX about that fact (my first two I could easily disassemble) and they said that they use a little Loctite on them and a little heat will release it.  A hairdryer was suggested to heat them up enough to allow unscrewing of the center piece for disassembly and O-Ring replacement.
