    I have been saving up for awhile and with tax returns i am just about ready to purchase another rifle. i am looking for a .25 caliber and think i have i narrowed down to either the seneca sumatra or fx wildcat. loved the way the wildcat looked in aeac review. but i think it was southern gunner on you tube that made the sumatra look amazing and it is a lot less expensive :) the gun will be used for most everything, pesting to hunting to target shooting, with target shooting probably the most abundant. thanks for any insights.

If shooting off a rest you might want to consider the Wildcat more. With the Sumatra you will be picking it up every shot to cock the lever. Unless you have one of those rests with an AR mag pocket designed into it, that might work.

    Wildcats are great accurate. Light got power to.  If your a walk and stalk guy.  WC ALL THE WAY.  the other is more of a bench gun. Imho. Pat

    The Sumatra is a great gun, it’s at the top of the power spectrum in both 22 and 25. It’s not pellet fussy, there is not a shot curve on them. Southern Gunner shot tethered. My .25 rifle drops 200 plus fps over 12 shots. (bought used and gun looses about 600 psi per week stopping at 1400) A friend shoots the .22 with a mixture of power settings and pellets he gets some consistant results. At 43″ with a 10″ Neil Clague LDC it is Kentucky long rifle size. On high power shooting the 44 gr Eungin’s the gun shoots at subsonic .22 pb power. On high power it is impossible to quiet the gun down using  lighter 25 gr pellets. FX is a cutting edge innovative company. I could not justify the Impact when the cost of probe ,mag, and bolt was 1/2 the cost of a used Cricket. FX has the best YouTube shooters using their products, and the liberated one of the nicest, and intelligent people in the air gun industry from New Jersey Ernest Rowe. Their barrel system is quickly becoming the standard for accuracy, it’s exciting to see their new innovations.

I am like you only I can not decide on the compact wild cat or wait on the new Wolverine R.
