    What do you guys think? Many different colour options available and ability to have the regulated Bottle on your waist or in a backpack. So you can replace it with a 500cc CF one if you wish. Also it used CZ barrels like the Cricket and Vulcans and they are interchangable

    Here are some groups at 50m and 92m from their website

    Edit: forgot the pic ;)

    Interesting, though the similarities to the Impact seem to be styling, a bottle and interchangeable barrels.  I’m a bit confused about the Foster fitting in the butt end as well as on the bottle.  Some info about if the regulator is externally adjustable would be nice.  I assume it is a shrouded barrel from the description of the end cap.  The Picatinny scope and under rail are nice but I’m not sure about Dovetail on the sides.  Butt plate looks uncomfortable, though it appears to be removable allowing for an aftermarket addition.  Overall it looks promising for the price point, very utilitarian, which is exactly what I would expect (and prefer) in a rifle like this at that price.

    Thats the rifle I saw on FB a while back. I could tell it wasn’t an impact but had never spotted a clone.

    It was only a matter of time before someone said “I know, I’ll make an Impact that is affordable, available and with less complex”.

Sure is ugly though… The bottle looks weird. Maybe because it isn’t CF and rounded.

    I don’t think it looks that different to the Impact, the Flex 
or the Airrow Stealth. It’s hard to make an air rifle pretty with a big bottle sticking out the front. I wondered why they couldn’t place the bottle on the other side (in between the trigger block and the recoil pad behind the grip) so it could be hidden in the stock.

    At the end of the day, you buy a bottle gun because you get extra shots per fill, so you sacrifice the sleek streamline look of rifles with smaller tubes that can be somewhat hidden. 

    I’m sure you could upgrade to cf bottle fairly easily. You can on most other bottle guns anyway.

We don’t know about accuracy or design issues yet. The manufacturers claims fall into the category of “if you do say so yourself”. I have yet to see one claim mediocre accuracy….

    From what I can tell, the Impacts that don’t have issues are capable of accuracy that is comparable to other high end bullpups. They just seem to have had more teething problems than most.

    I think they could have done without the caliber switching thing.

    They should call the gun: “The Bottle”.. all bottle. I would take less shots over a large bottle sticking out like this gun. I did not read if it would take a smaller bottle and mount under the barrel. I agree with Zebra on the caliber switching. I just don’t see it as popular as the Impact, but this is one mans opinion….

    I would like a Impact without the caliber switching feature. Less Room for issues.

    And look at Daystate with their Pulsar – Renegade. It should be the same with Impact – Impact light

Reducing the potential for issues seems like it should be important for a new air gun start up. You need to have a Cricket under your belt before you can survive a Colibri… That being said, I’m not 100% sure that caliber switching is the source of all of the Impact’s issues.

    You can switch calibers on the Verminator Extreme and you don’t see that many threads discussing issues with them. The Verminator has less external adjustments, less design complexity and less demand to put a strain on their manufacturing capability though.

    I think they could do without “easy caliber switching” because I don’t think it adds that much value for most users. Switching caliber means adjusting your scope which most people don’t want to do on a regular basis. If I had a desire to regularly use multiple calibers, then I would buy two air guns and never touch the barrels. 

    I’m definitely curious to see how well these new guys do with the barrel switching design. Perhaps we’ll change our views if the price of additional calibers is sufficiently low to stop you comparing it to buying two separate guns.

    You are correct, the rifle itself doesn’t look that bad. In fact, it doesn’t look bad at all! It’s just that darn paintball style tank that makes it look goofy with the long neck. I’m sure like you mentioned, a bottle switch is probably quite easy (outside of the price). I’d be stoked to see an option where you can put a smaller “traditional” air tube on it, that’d be pretty cool. 

    
like paintball though. I’m a HUGE fan of being able to side pack that bottle though!

    either way, I like the direction they are going with the rifle. Ideally it’s WILDLY popular which in turn forces other companies to want to follow suit.

    Hey guys.

    Just wanted to let you know that I have this gun at home with all 4 caliber options and I am going to be releasing a video review on it soon on YouTube. It is a very nice and accurate gun (and extremely compact as you can see compared to my BSA Platinum scope :) ).

    Wow, must admit i dont totally hate it. Slap a carbon tank, huge silencer and a little more contoured buttpad on it and it might be a winner. I could maybe place it next to my Impact…

    It looks nicer in that pic. What it needs is a custom designed handguard / forend / quad-rail / tank cover thingy to cover the bottle and it would have a mean / awesome / tactical / futuristic / cool / better look. 

    Are these on sale in America yet and if so, where? And if not, when?

4 calibers?  I only saw 3 calibers and an arrow barrel on their website.  Does it have a .30 barrel now?  How adjustable is it and how easy are the adjustments?

Wow…I like it!  Good price too at $1,200.   Didn’t know they were selling them already even in Europe.   Looking forward your review!

Where did you buy it?
    I live near slovenia, and would go to the company itself.
    Can’t wait to get it into my hands :)

    MOD EDIT: ENOUGH OF THE ANTI FX AGENDA. CONSIDER THIS A WARNING.
