    I'm interested in upgrading my current PCP and getting a bullpup design in .22.  I'm honing in on the Vulcan 2 vs. the Wildcat MKII.  From reading reviews, it looks like many considered that the Vulcan had the edge over the original Wildcat.  With improvements in the Vulcan 2 as well as the MKII newer releases though, they both look like great guns and closely matched.  I'm curious what others think based off of experience?

    My buddy has a Vulcan in .22, pellets go in the same hole not ragged at 25 yards, which is what started me on this journey.  I can't speak for the Wildcat as I've never seen one up close.  The Vulcan, build quality and feel are outstanding and the accuracy is awesome as well.

    Had a Vulcan. Sold it. Biggest mistake of my life. FX guns are good. Having owned both a Wildcat and a Vulcan, I would always go back to the Vulcan.It’s an amazing gun.

    I have a vulcan and have my eye on a vulcan 2. I would not part with my vulcan even when I make the move to get a vulcan 2. I have handled the wildcat but not shoot it. Honestly It is the only fx airgun I would consider currently but thats just me. Even with that said there are several others I would pick up first before I got a wildcat. I am not a big fan of fx and their lack of quality control. I will say that the wildcat felt like a toy compared to a vulcan when handled. The vulcan also seems to be much better made overall.

    Thanks everyone for the quick replies so far.  Seems the votes are leaning towards the Vulcan 2, which was my original thought as well.  I appreciate the feedback!

    I read your OP 24 hours ago when it was initially posted. At that point I was reluctant to respond simply because I feel that you can't go wrong with either of the bullpups you're considering — the Vulcan2 or the Wildcat MkII. 

    I have owned the FX Wildcat MkI in .25 caliber for about a year now. I also have an AGT Vulcan Tactic Gen 4 in .22 caliber and a Vulcan2 Tactic in .25 caliber — "semi-bullpups". Frankly, the choice of which gun is better is strictly a matter of personal preference. The Vulcan(s) are heavier than the Wildcat. Consequently, if I were to go hunting, I would choose the Wildcat. For me the Wildcat's trigger was more adjustable — therefore, I prefer it to the Vulcan(s). 

    The Vulcan(s) come with the Picatinny rail standard vs the dovetail rail on the Wildcat. 

    The Vulcan(s) have a slightly better magazine, although the lever action on the Wildcat is smoother. 

    The Vulcan(s) still have — annoying to some — the ping sound when fired. I don't mind it, but the Wildcat's sound is sweeter.

    The Vulcan(s)' stock comes prepared for mounting a bipod, while the Wildcat's stock requires more work to mount the bipod.

    The Vulcan's lever is on the left side of the rifle. But get this, although I'm right-handed, this setup is preferable to me, because I don't have to take my right hand away from the trigger.

    *Now for the important part:

    Both these guns are absolute "TACK DRIVERS" and I can not discern any difference in the accuracy between the two.

    Take your pick of which to buy first. As you will most likely own both in due time.

    PS: I am currently awaiting the arrival of my recently purchased Vulcan2 Bullpup .30 caliber in Laminate. Updates and pics will follow.

    Can't beat the Vulcan. I have the .22 Vulcan and Just bought the Vulcan2 in .25. BOTH are extremely accurate. Both my triggers are set at 4 oz with a real nice first stage pull. A few weeks ago I shot a 50 yard 10 shot group just over .322 with my .25, couldn't believe it. Both Vulcans have a SWFA SS 12×44 scope, awesome scope for the money. If I could figure out how to post pictures I would post it. I have it on TAG.

    I like your taste in airguns and accessories!

    Have you had the pleasure of handling the FX Wildcat?

    Yes I have. My buddy owned one and brought it over for me to test out. My Vulcans outshot his Wildcat all day long. I had a .22 Bobcat, just couldn't get it to shoot to my satisfaction.
