The new FX Wildcat MKIII!
SO WHAT DID THEY DO DIFFERENTLY ON THIS LATEST MODEL?
The new FX Wildcat MKIII enhances its legacy as it updates this coveted platform for the modern air gunner. The previous two models were a huge success and were among the most popular selling airguns worldwide. So what did they do differently on this latest model?
The improvements start inside the Wildcat’s main block. The engineering into the new Wildcat block pushes the boundaries of what can be accomplished with precision CNC engineering from FX Airguns. The most significant new power feature is designed around the new rear power adjuster. This power adjuster is a breakthrough as it allows for both micro and macro adjustments using the same dial to the hammer spring. The rear power adjuster has seven presets for your hammer. Still, the actual hammer tension can be adjusted more fully higher or lower using an Allen wrench through a hole found on the adjuster’s 8th position. This allows the Wildcat hammer to be fully adjusted in harmony with the AMP regulator to allow for the full range of adjustability found in other FX rifles like the FX Impact & FX Crown.
Because the FX Impact, Crown, and Dreamline range were so popular with caliber changes, FX Airguns decided that they will bring this system into the new Wildcat version as well. You can now change barrel systems and calibers on the fly like the other FX Airgun range models. Additional barrel kits will be available.
The Wildcat MKIII also includes an upgrade to its magazine system, and now you can enjoy more shots per magazine with the new side shot high capacity magazines. No longer restrained to 8 shots, the Wildcat MKIII now more than doubles its shots using the FX Side-Shot magazine (the same magazines as found on the FX Crown and FX Dreamline).
A new Picatinny scope rail is now standard on the Wildcat MKIII, another new Wildcat feature. This rail makes it easy to swop out your scopes between FX guns and gives you the full range of dialing with your scope. This system works very well with the new Element Optics scope range. It is also worth knowing that as the Maverick, the new Wildcat MKIII rifles and barrel kits will ship with FX’s recently released new Superior STX Barrel Liners. Perfect for shooting heavier pellets and slugs!
The Wildcat MKIII comes in two configurations, Wildcat MKIII Compact and Wildcat MKIII Sniper. All rifles offered in a synthetic stock.
