    I’ve been thinking about buying an FX Bobcat MKII in .30 cal and could use some input from owners out there.  Are there any obvious things to watch for with the Bobcat?  I have quite a few PCP air rifles now and they all have their quirks.  I was hoping to get some information before jumping off the deep end.  Thanks in advance for your help.

    Are you think about buying used? I bought mine used from AOA MK1 in 22 and its amazing. But no issue with mine. I hope you have a compressor. I bet it’s an air hog.

    I wasn’t sure if I would go new or used just yet.  I do have an Airetex 45 which makes life easier because every PCP I have is an air hog.  Thanks for the input.  Keep it coming I can use all that I can get.

    I’ve got a .25 MK2 and I love it. The only upgrades I did was to add a Belitta Huggett Silencer and Atlas Rails. I still prefer it to my Wildcat as it’s more stable for longer range shooting.  I’ve had no problems over 1 year of heavy use they are excellent rifles and very much overlooked.

    Badger farm I shoot a Bobcat MK1 .25 with 34 gr heavies 2.5 years without any problems. I would need bigger page to list all the animals taken with this gun. Just got back from Puerto Rico and put down at least 150 Iguana on this pest trip. This gun has never let me down! I don’t know if the regulated version has any hick ups but I never read any. It is a 100y gun also. Pretty much same gun as the Royale 500 for .25 cal. I know of a used 30 cal for sale also.

    So I only have about 80 round thru a used .30 mk1 bobcat I bought from one of our fine members here on AGN, so far I love it. I have not shot farther than 50 yards with it but I’m impressed, very accurate and it consumes air!, glad I bought a compressor also. I have a w/cat .25 which I have several thousand rounds thru it, the cocking and feel are very similar. I can’t believe that fx did not come out with a .30 wildcat, perhaps the thought the .30 bobcat sales would suffer.

    I have an Airtex 45 as well. Couldn’t ask for a better piece of equipment.

    Are you looking for 30 cal for any specific reason? Just wondering if the 25 (less of an air hog) would do the job for you.

    I just wanted to fill the gap between my small bore up to .25  and my big bore .35 and .45.  I found a really good deal on a Bobcat .30 from the post and it should be here this Saturday.

    Hi BadgerFarm,  Brilliant!! Good on You!  The MKII’s are great rifles.  Just seen a Video from AirArmshuntingSA entitled “Rifle or Bullpup” and it reinforced why I like my Bobcat over my Wildcat.  https://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=em-subs_digest&v=gYaUN4qJ5D4

    Thanks Griffy,  It’s due in tomorrow and I’m about to jump out of my skin waiting for it.  I’ve got a nice Hawke scope waiting for it and the seller was nice enough to throw in several tins of pellets so I should be set.  An FX air rifle has been on my short list for a long time now and here it is on its way.  I was trying to decide between this one and a Vulcan in .25 cal but the design of the FX won out this time.
