    I’m ready to do an upgrade in my PCP rifle, and I’ve narrowed it down to the new FX Wildcat MKII in .25 cal.  While doing my research on this rifle, I found three places on line that sells it, and they are all the same price at  $1299.99.  My only dilemma is that they all list a different barrel length, and we’re not talking about the compact version.

    Airgun Depot lists the barrel at 23.6 inches
    Airguns of Arizona lists at 19.7 inches
    Utah Airguns lists at 22 inches

    Are these typo erros on listings, or are there different barrel length available.  I have been under the impression that longer is better for long range accuracy and power.  Could you new Wildcat MKII .25 cal owners let me know what you have.
    Thanks

    Yeah, I think you are looking at typos. The .177 and the .22 have a shorter barrel than the .25. The .25 is just about 24 inches long and the .177 and the .22 are either 19.5″ or 19.7″ at least that is my take on it. I know my .25 is a good bit longer than the .22 version but it is the old MK 1.

    I’ve seen all those errors in my looking at the Mk2 also.

    I hesitate to do business with sites that have their info wrong. That do cut and paste descriptions of the products they sell and can’t even get those right.

    Well, I was kinda thinking that the specs posted by Airguns of Arizona were actually for the compact version or the 22 cal. version.  The Utah Airguns spec of 22 inches also seems off to me.  I really think that the spec of 23.6 inches is the correct barrel length for the .25 cal MKII. that Airgun Depot shows.
    And as Trailryder42 mentioned, I would tend to not do business with someone that doesn’t post their listing correct.  When I’m about to spend that amount of money, I expect to get exactly what I pay for.

    And you can’t get the info straight from the FX website because they don’t even have the Mk2 listed yet.
