    Mine arrived with the trigger upgrade. Few hundred shots on it and it’s fine. It does feel like shit though. I haven’t adjusted it. It’s light, but light does not a good trigger make.

    No pun intended here but I was getting ready to pull the trigger on a Wildcat

    My Ernest Rowe tuned WildCat is light trigger, AND feels great. He changes out a spring in the assembly, makes for a real predictable and enjoyable trigger. Not far in terms from my tuned-by-same-man Daystate Wolverine. The Wolverine is a different animal not connected by links and rods so it has that advantage. But having the pre-tuned and now amazing WildCat to compair to, definatly send your Wildcat off to Ernest.

    I don’t think this clevis pin issue has been resolved. I bought my Wildcat  this Jan 2017.

    What’s the size and thread to upgrade the  clevis pins?

    I’ve got 2 Wildcats, and their triggers are the best out of all my other 8 PCP rifles. Both were purchased January of this year, so I’m assuming they have the upgrade. Now I guess I need to pop the stock and have a look see! Also I must add, I never use the safety, and never leave mine cocked.

    Broke my Wildcat yesterday. Had it apart, to fix a leak in the air tank, and while assembling, the hammer got stuck in the cocked position. Nothing to do with the trigger mechanism, like something is jammed inside between the hammer and the receiver body. While trying to figure out what was the problem, pulled the trigger while on safe, and broke the little “L” shaped piece. Mine has the upgraded clevis parts, but the little “L” thing appears to be aluminum, and VERY fragil. Breaks same as picture above, where they made a cutout for the spring. I’ve emailed FX, and AOA asking for parts. Today, I’ll tear her all the way down, and remove the hammer, etc. Yes, I’m a little disappointed in my $1000 plus rifle. ;(

    Cooter, thanks for the update my next gun was to be a Wildcat…not now. That said, I hope you can get yours repaired to your satisfaction quickly!

    Hey Boog,

    Fyi, AoA did fix my clevis pin issue @ no charge, warranty claim. I have not had an issue since. It is a great carbine that is very accurate.

    OK update. I too broke the little "L Trigger" piece. It is fragile and originally was made out of aluminum. When I first asked FX on the phone, if the piece had been updated, they said no. After a couple of email complaints, they sent me a new one. It's made out of steel. They were unaware of the change, and told me that FX is constantly improving parts as time passes, and are not always notified of the changes. Long story short, my broke one won't stick to a magnet, the new one does.
