    How do you like your rifle so far? Any major issues?

    Has the lower shot count been a problem for you?

    I’m looking to add a .25 to my stable and I’m seriously considering the new Wildcat compact. Thanks!

    +1 seeking input on the Compact – to add to the above, how loud is it?

    I'm very happy with mine very accurate and no problems other than the bypod rail mounting. They are screwed in with wood screws you have to use T-nuts to hold it. They are a little loud but I installed a Donnyfl Sumo, very quite now. I get 3 magazines before I have to refill air. I use it for pest control so that is fine. Nice and light and shoulders fast . I seem to grab it more than my others.

    You will not be sorry when you get it. Oh I should also tell you I'm left handed no problems shooting it.

    Had mine about a month now and love it! Major issue at the start, as it would not cock on arrival. Sent to FX in North Carolina where it was fixed and tuned by their expert Esting Rowe. Added a Donnyfl Koi although it was pretty quiet stock. Used for pesting, getting 4 mags between fills (32 shots).

    I don't own one, but if you are lookin into the Wildcat, be sure to give the Warcat a good look over at Utah airguns, Ted is pretty excited about it (his involvement in the development i'm sure has nothing to do with that ;) )

    I’m pretty sure it is. I’ve seen pictures of them with a DonnyFL attached in other threads.

    Definitely! It is a tack driver out to 100 yards so far.  The  Donnyfl Moderator definitely makes is quiet!

    My Impact sits and the Wildcats goes out. I would guess I am getting a little more than 3 magazines out of a fill. I fill it, according to the gauge on my Great White to 320 bar. however the gauge on the WC only says 220 bar. Anyway, with that air I get at least 3 or 4 magazines. The only thing I don't like is the way you can shoot and lose air on an empty magazine. I usually can count to 8 but don't remember sometimes how many I shot in between the shots themselves. The magazines are crazy easy to load unlike the bazaar method used in the Impact magazines. However the Impact magazines are designed so you can't shoot on an empty magazine.

    After I now have it dialed in, some non gun shooters wanted to try it and hit a steel rat, benching, at 100 yds.

    A red Sharpie marker works wonders. Mark off a section on the clip/magazine where you'll know the last shot will be at after it rotates. 

    Not a Wildcat but should work the same.

    The marker idea works well, I also find myself loading the mag as I shoot. If you don't shoot too fast you can keep up with it without ever having to remove the mag from the gun.

    I watched one of Tominco's YouTube videos on his preparation for EBR with his Wildcat and saw how he loads additional pellets with the clip still in the gun. Pretty neat and I never knew that about the Wildcat. I also like how he dumps the pellets over the clip using gravity to have them land head first and then loads the rest of the pellets. It's all about efficiency. Cool.

    Do have a link to the video?  Searching Tominco EBR Wildcat doesn’t yield any.

    For some reason, I searched and can't find it also but I know that I watched it. He even discussed about building his own shooting table similar to the EBR tables used at the event and even using a certain type of towel for the table lol. Maybe you could reach out to him. I'm pretty sure he'll help you out.
