The company says that the FX Maverick is purpose-built from the ground up for shooting with with heavier pellets and slugs.
In order to shoot heavier pellets and airgun slugs at optimal speeds for best accuracy at longer distances, the Maverick features the largest plenum yet on an FX rifle as well as the latest FX innovation, dual regulators!
FX explains that the first regulator gives a first stage pressure reduction in preparation for the second regulator. This provides less stress on the second regulator and achieves a more constant output pressure with less standard deviations.
Both AMP Regulators can be adjusted externally and should be adjusted in harmony with each other. Ideally there should be a 30-40 BAR difference between the first and second regulators.
These dual regulators work in tandem with the large 89cc Power Plenum. This large plenum, paired proportionately with the correct porting and valving, allows for a more consistent working pressure to be delivered with each shot.
The Maverick utilizes the same rear power adjuster that was first introduced with the FX Wildcat MkIII. This hammer adjuster allows for both micro and macro adjustments using the same dial. In this way, the Maverick can be fully adjusted in harmony with the Dual AMP Regulators for the chosen caliber and projectile.
Like all modern FX Airguns, the Maverick utilizes FX’s Smooth Twist X (STX) Interchangeable Barrel and Liner System.
All FX Mavericks ship with Superior STX Standard liners perfect for shooting pellets, FX Hybrid Slugs and lighter weight slugs. Additional liners are available to tailor to different projectiles.
In addition, there’s an optional FX Maverick Slug Power Kit. This kit includes a heavier hammer and slug pin probes that allow for even more power and velocities for heavier slugs.
The Maverick has a tactical-style body that allows aftermarket components to be added for further customization. All Mavericks have a 20 MOA angle built-in to the picatinny scope rail. There’s also multiple picatinny accessory rails. They use standard AR grips and feature the newly redesigned rear FX buttpad.
FX says that the Maverick will remind shooters of both the FX Impact and FX Wildcat. A perfect blend of the two rifles…
