FX Wildcat MkII .30 Cal Version Now Shipping
HAM readers saw a “sneak preview” of the new FX Wildcat MkII .30 Cal in our reports from Extreme Benchrest 2018. Now comes the formal announcement from FX Airguns that this new model is in stock just in time for that very special Christmas present!
The FX Wildcat MkII .30 Cal packs both power and phenomenal accuracy – says the manufacturer – due to its 700mm Smooth Twist X barrel. It delivers up to 75Ft/Lbs of muzzle energy using the same barrel and barrel system that is found on the FX Impact X.
That’s a competition-grade 700mm STX barrel housed in the ground-breaking Interchangeable Barrel Liner System. This revolutionary barrel design allows different barrel liners to be easily exchanged on the rifle, allowing shooters to match the barrel to the particular projectile they would like to use.
The new .30 Cal Wildcat MKII also includes the new AMP Regulator. The AMP Reg (short for “Adjustable Match Precision Regulator”) is a newly designed high-performance regulator that is externally adjustable by the user.
FX tells us that this new and improved regulator design results in a higher performing regulator. Tuning can be dialed in to a more precise pressure measurement without spring fatigue or regulator creep working in.
Plus, the AMP regulator can be adjusted both higher and lower with air pressure present. Gone are the days of needing to depressurize your rifle before changing the regulator pressure. This allows the AMP Reg to be externally adjusted within the fixed 300cc aluminum air reservoir by use of a simple Allen key.
This new large caliber FX Wildcat MkII .30 Cal bullpup is a perfect alternative to its big brother the Impact, says FX Airguns. They tell us that it’s beautifully balanced, light weight, powerful and has a smooth cocking sidelever positioned perfectly over one of the most amazing bullpup triggers you will ever have the pleasure of shooting.
Although HAM reviewers have not shot the FX Wildcat MkII .30 Cal yet, we certainly liked the “MkI” version a lot in .22 cal when we tested it, so we can believe the claims!
