    I guess I don’t understand airgun marketing. Every body is falling all over them selves to spend 1400.0$ US for an air gun that don’t even come with the barrel liner that they want? So add another125.00 for the X thingy. Or the scope rail you want. I have a funny feeling that a lot of shooters are going to be screaming about problems installing the x liner that everyone seems to be drooling over. Oh by the way Dan Wesson had a barrel liner scream, back in the 70s that had a lot problems with accurcey. And large swings of POI from liner to liner. Every time it was changed for a different liner, or to clean it you had to re zero the sights. These FX liners look really flimsy and just a tiny bit of over torgue, a drop or bump will damage it. Did anyone hear a torgue spec on the liner to get consistency. Just some thing that need thinking about.

    Always love Steve’s videos. And I love FX Airguns and the precision, accuracy and power they produce. Kudos, FX! It would make my day to win this Wildcat!

    “Whensley”like always Steve did a great review . the different barrels sounds like it would be fun to experiment with. can one also change caliber on this one as well ?


    I covered this to some extent in the vid for ya but yes, the X liners will be offered in different calibers too.  For the mk2, .22 and .25 are appropriate.  Since the Crown and Impact are tunable, even smaller and larger caliber X liners can be made to work with them.

    “mag13”Always a pleasure to watch your reviews Steve. BTW, what material is used for the barrel liners, SS? Very fine rifle kit anyone would be thrilled to own, good luck to all.

    I honesty don’t know but it does seem to be made from some sort of stainless alloy.

    “crusher75060”As usual Steve, great review. Very nice looking gun as well.  
    With the JSB 25’s, did the X barrel shoot any better than the ST barrel?  I wonder what some heavier pellets and a little tweaking could do?

    I’m not sure I follow cuz I shot the 25.39gr through both barrels for ya in the vid.  That said, I came away feeling like they’re equally accurate with the JSB.  The X should be more forgiving though if you want to experiment with different pellets & tunes.

    “Somayort”Very good review Steve. What do I need a FX Crown, FX Impact, or Daystate Air Wolf for? The 50 yard group (with the smooth twist barrel) was the best I can remember you shooting. Correct me if I’m wrong. Steve how accurate was the first Gen Wildcat?

    I was getting a POI change of 1-2″ at 50 yards swapping between inserts ($110 ea).  They made an impression of being quite rigid & robust.  They didn’t appear sensitive to varying levels of snuggung up.  If your concerns of not wanting to rezero after removal outweigh all the other benefits, this system isn’t for you.

    “jking”STEVE,
    Great video Steve, nobody does it better. Really impressive 100yd performance not only for a BP but for any PCP period. Three questions that I thought of…
    1. Do you sort the pellets for these reviews, if so what methods do you use?
    2. Did you find any sweet spot as far as the air tube pressure in relation to accuracy?
    3. After removing the liners for cleaning how much re-sighting was needed?
    JK
     

    1) No, never.  The goal is always to portray results that the typical user can achieve.  Of course if when loading a pellet, I see a ding in the skirt, I toss it aside and grab another (as anyone would).

    2) Not tube pressure alone but rather the velocity resulting from tube pressure.  Absolutely… each gun/pellet combo will have a favorite velocity, I always find it, and always shoot my review targets in that window.

    3) 1-2 inches at 50 yards

    Would this gun be left hand friendly?
