New FX Crown MkII Is Launched
Today, FX Airguns has introduced a new, improved version of the Crown. It’s the FX Crown MkII.
This is an inline change (meaning rolling developments that have been added immediately to Crown production). So, existing orders for Crowns from dealers will be fulfilled by FX Airguns with Crown MkIIs. Therefore, customers who may have a Crown on pre-order will now receive a Crown MkII.
The biggest change for the Crown Mark II is an increased plenum size. In fact, the plenum volume has been increased by 28% compared to the previous model.
In addition, there are modifications to the valving on the Crown MkII. FX says the combination of these changes results in a much more powerful rifle that’s fully suited for use with airgun slugs.
In HAM’s May 2020 comprehensive test review of the FX Crown Continuum, that gun scored an almost perfect score of 99%. With these improvements, the Mark II stands to be even better!!!
As a further enhancement for long range shooting, the FX Crown Mark II has the built-in Picatinny scope rail machined with a 20 MOA angle. This canting of the scope base allows for more usable elevation adjustment in the scope when used for shooting at longer distances.
As you would expect from FX Airguns, there’s a wide range of configurations available for the Crown MkII. These include a choice of stock types and barrel lengths.
The different barrel lengths produce slightly different power levels, as you would expect from a PCP air rifle.
In addition to the Minelli-manufactured laminate wood stocks in different colorways, Walnut and black synthetic stocks, there’s two additional choices. One is an adjustable laminated wood stock produced by Norwegian specialist rifle stock manufacturer GRS. Another choice is the forthcoming combination with a Saber Tactical chassis stock, focused on benchrest shooting.
There’s also a Crown MkII VP model. In this case the “VP” stands for Value Priced. This model combines a synthetic stock with Aluminum HPA bottle to achieve its low selling price of $1,399.99.
