    Kris “what else to add”. Not impressed. Anyone can take 10 shots and eventually hit there target, especially from that distance. That’s not a trick shot . Why did take so many shots? Let me know when you find something better.

    I joined this forum because I was undecided between the two best bullpups currently on the market. These types of forums are strictly the opinion of the person writing them and mine is no different.
    I simply wanted the best and after many months of research and many hours of watching videos I decided to throw my hat into the Vulcan ring. The Vulcan is without competition when you compare true bullpups. There is no other Bullpup on the market that is as powerful as the Vulcan in the 26 inch size. It’s smaller than the Bobcat and Wildcat and more powerful than both. Accuracy was a factor also. The Vulcan has the ability to hit targets at 150 yards.
    I am not putting down the Bobcat or Wildcat and I’m sure they are fine AIRGUN MACHINES. Good luck to all in whatever bullpup you select.

    The .25 vulcan has a 900 fps average with only 27-30 shots. The .25 wildcat has a 915 fps average with 48 shots. I choose the wildcat , more power, better shot count, lighter and I believe costs less.

    I also came down to the choice between the Wildcat and the Vulcan and I ended up with the Vulcan. It has both power and accuracy and it’s fit and finish are top notch also it’s holds a very consistent shoot string and is very accurate way over 100yds. The walnut stock has so much character in its grain pattern and is very quiet I love it’s balance and the bolt on the left hand side allows me to keep my eye to the scope and cycle the bolt. Also it’s completely user friendly when it comes to maintenance if you watch the Ernest YouTube videos and very adjustable. Don’t get me wrong I love FX but the Vulcan had everything I was looking for in a compact accurate powerful gun.

    I believe we can split hairs eternally in the selection of the “best” pcp bullpup.

    Given that both guns perform equally, and have a good performance reputation….only the final selection is left to be made.

    Consider, bullpups are a lot like women…first we check out how well they are built, then their looks, performance, reliability, maintenance requirements, and whether they are readily available for vigorous use, when the need suddenly arises!     

    Pick one, buy it..but don’t look back!!!  You’ll end up owning one of each.

    I own both guns, and I’m currently selling my .25 Wildcat. I got the Wildcat first, and I don’t know if I got a lemon, but I’ve never been able to enjoy that gun. First of all, it shoots very well up to 50 yards, but after that The shots are very inconsistent, I’m talking about 3″ groups at 60 yards. 
    After a couple of months of trying everything to get that gun to shoot longer than 50 yards, I decided to give The Vulcan a chance, and let me tell you that I’m so glad that I did it. The Vulcan is just a joy to shoot, it light, and very, very accurate. Now I have another issue with The Wildcat, The gun leaks air, and can only hold Air up to 100 Bar. If you fill The gun you can use it since The leak is very slow, but if you leave The gun with 200 Bar, it would be holding just 100 The next day. Anyway that has been my experience with both guns, I hope this helps.

    Thanks for your invoice PCP507, it’s another one for the Vulcan ;) and it just comfort me in the choice I made since I launched this topic ^^
    I’m not hesitating anymore between these two superb guns, one just seems to be above the other one in terms of… Well everything ^^ Soi said to myself it was worth waiting a bit and spending the extra bucks on the vulcan =)

    Ok here’s the deal. The guy that made this and sold it to me asked me not to display his personal email or phone number and I posted a picture of the installation directions a few days ago not thinking his phone number was on there and also a picture of this shroud on the “Yellow” classifieds that had his email and he wasn’t to happy. He said i make these shrouds on a one on one customer basis and not mass produced so if you want to contact him then send me your name,email and possibly your phone number and I’ll email your info to him. I’ve done this already for a bunch of members and he’s already contacted some of them as I was told. I took down the photos that had his personal information in it because he emailed me saying he was getting blown up by all kinds of people. It was totally a stupid error on my part. This guy is totally legit and a very smart dude when it comes to Airguns and accessories and was very pleasant to speak with on the phone. So PM me your info and I will forward it to him.

    Ok, back to the subject.  

    I have a Cricket BP and the FX Wildcat.  Beyond the different cocking position I think the Cricket accuracy and quality is right there with the Vulcan.  As far as the quality of my Wildcat it is right there with my Cricket.  The fit, finish, trigger and weight (lack of) are top notch.  Where I seperate the two is accuracy.  On paper my Cricket is considerably more accurate.  I’ve taken small game at 100 yards many times with my BP Cricket.  I wouldn’t attempt this with my Wildcat because as some have complained about, I too get the odd POI shifts after letting the gun sit overnight.  Adjust the scope for the shift then the next day it’s going the other direction (tried multiple scopes).  Once you adjust the scope and keep shooting it stays on target for the day, but as I said the next day it shifts horizontally somewhere else which is really irritating.  As you might have guessed I’m not sold on Smooth Twist yet.  I’ve examined the smooth twist and it looks like a crimped type of barreling because you can see the patrusions of the rifling on the OD of the barrel.  Interesting approach, just not sure it’s as good as traditional rifelling.  Just seems like the barrel has rifelling because it was deformed rather than cut.  Ted seems to hit everything with his FX guns so maybe my barell had a production issue?

    My Wildcat has be realiiable and does not leak at all which is good.  I will continue to seek better accuracy, but I’m using the same JSB pellets my Cricket and Airwolf like and the pellet does not explain the POI shifts which the Cricket and Wolf do not exhibit.  If you need to choose between the Vulcan and the Wildcat you made the better choice which is the Vulcan.

    Thanks for sharing your point of view Scott_mct =)
    I was also torn between the vulcan and cricket.. The two only reason I turned to the vulcan is the bolt placement and how it’s finished.
    I’ve read some people complaining about the cricket not having that sweet finish some other rifles have. And as I’m used to air arms, so British “superiority” in terms of quality of the chosen materials etc… I didn’t wanna take the risk to be disappointed =]
