New FX Panthera Hunter Air Rifle Available Soon
In December 2022, FX Airguns launched a new dedicated, slug shooting competition gun, the Panthera. Now there’s a new version, the FX Panthera Hunter. And this one’s a pellet-shooter!
The FX Panthera Hunter joins the growing number of compact PCPs that are intended for hunting. Compared to the “Competition” Panthera, it’s more compact, with a shorter barrel. There’s also a HPA bottle in the standard position under the barrel – at least in the basic version.
Pyramyd Air is showing availability for May 26, 2023. So it’s available for pre-order now and will be shipping very soon.
As with other FX air rifles, the Panthera Hunter is to be available in a wide variety of configurations. Calibers start with .177 and go all the way to .30 cal. with a claimed maximum Muzzle Energy of 107 Ft/Lbs despite the short barrel!
The compact Panthera Hunter has an adjustable reversible cheekpiece, a reversible sidelever and an adjustable buttstock. It also uses a a standard AR grip.
Other features include a two-stage adjustable match trigger, an adjustable hammer spring tension power wheel and an externally-adjustable AMP MKII regulator. This allows the owner many options to customize it for different types of shooting.
The Panthera Hunter will also be configurable with two HPA bottles – one forward, the other aft (as with the “competition” Panthera). As you’d expect, this will require an additional accessory kit to achieve.
Other configuration options include a collapsible AR stock kit adapter and an ARCA-compatible forend.
The weight is light at around 6 Lbs 4 Oz, or so for the “bare” gun in regular configuration.
The Street Price starts at $1,699.99.
