    I’m thinking that alot of measurements on this spec sheet conflict with other sources.
    Mag capacity of 12 vs 8
    Air capacity of 300cc that looks to be high for a tube. Those are two things I’m seeing off the top of my head.

    According to an online source 65 joule would equal approx. 47.94 fpe for the .25 caliber WC.  Nice if thats true.

    Yes I’ve been converting the above 
    65 jouls = 47.9 fpe
    barrel length 610mm = 24″
    Weight does conflict with AoA specs as 
    3,60kg= 7.9 lbs
        250 bar = 3625 psi
    amd 470 cc does seem wrong for a bulpup or tube for that matter but who know could be correct

    Looking at the WC photo the air chamber extends way back into the airgun.  470 cc would be great if true.
    265 m/sec would equal approx. 869 fps.  If you look at the FX Airguns website at the .25 Bobcat mk2 these WC specs are very similar.

    I agree is great if all all true hope so except the weight hope it is a typo and is the AoA stated 6.6 in .25 cal I’m excited getting close i already have scopes no limit rings ready for it!

    Hum sorry guys…. only 265 m/s ?!!!! What the actual heck ?! It’s really low no? I mean… it’s common to see .25 rifles pushing lead at 285 – 295 m/s ..
    I really want the WD but reading this really freezes me =/

    That spec sheet looks like the Bobcat to me.

    They’re not on US soil as of yet. Early May was the last I heard. You might take a look at AirgunGearShow on youtube for a peek at it. I don’t know of anyone who has shot one yet.

    Timeline is around 2-3 weeks until they hit US soil.  Likely a week after that before owners stop shooting long enough to write on the forum.  ;)

    Ted, did you get the .22 and why so, if you don’t mind me asking..SteveSteve

    “SteveS.”Ted, did you get the .22 and why so, if you don’t mind me asking..SteveSteve


    I ordered one of each (.22 and .25).  Had I not traveled to Germany (IWA) I would have only ordered the .22.  The .25 seemed too long to me.  Then I shouldered a scoped .25, and changed my mind.  I can comfortably carry the .25 Wildcat by the “cross bar” in the stock without the muzzle getting anywhere near the ground.  And despite looking a bit “long”, the .25 at 6.5lbs still handled exactly like a bullpup.  In time, I will likely find myself shooting either the Wildcat or Bobcat .25 more often.  If one of them threatens to become a safe queen, it’s off to the classifieds.  :)

What do the Wildcat offer that the Bobcat does not?  I thought the Wildcat was a watered down version of the Bobcat?

    Sweet Man! 
    Thanks for the heads up on the timeline for arrival. I look forward to comparing my notes against yours. Please post a chrony string somewhere for the .25. I’d be interested to see the consistency between yours and mine. 
    Tick, tock, tick, tock…. Waiting for the ship to port and customs….

Not at all.  The WildCat is a different gun built for a different purpose.  It lacks the shot-count and features of the Bobcat, but the result is a reduction in weight and size.  Power and accuracy should be comparable.  So, the question isn’t which one is better, but rather which one will be better for my purposes.  I honestly think that the WildCat is a better suited gun for most shooters.

    Bobcat and Wildcat are different animals. Take a look at the AOA pictures of each. The Wildcat is an entirely new platform. It’s also about $400 less, lighter weight, regulated (same as BC), and has a new magazine that is supposedly going to be cheaper and easier to load. Personally, I do no t care for how the current FX mags load. I find them a bit tedious. I do not know if the WC has the new patented regulator design but, if so, that would be another difference. Also, the BC isn’t quite a bullpup, but more of a hybrid between a carbine and a bullpup. It’s unique in that way! I could imagine that the WC might be a watered down version of the Impact. But, that’s just a guess. 

    LOL! You beat me by a few minutes Ted!
