FX Monsoon availible in the uk?

Postby Corvids on Tue Jan 29, 2013 1:23 pm

as you may well have guessed i am slowly(rapidly)becoming a big FX fan, and some of their cousins.

is this gun availible in the uk?

i am currently sniffing around and asking lots and lots of questions, not just on here but other forums too.
as yet no FX gun, but a variant should be here at the weekend.

Nope.

No semis in the UK.

Johnny,

how would you compare the Monsoon to the Revo?

IMHO the Revo is a way better model, it was the first one out and made to be 100% functional, hence its odd design.

The Monsoon was made to be a less expensive rifle looking like a normal rifle and working as a semi.

It does work fine but it lacks shotcount and its not as rugged as the Revo.

Its a little like comparing the Cyclone (Revo) with the Typhoon (Monsoon).

Johnny thanks for the info.

Currently thinking of getting Monsoon as I already own the Revo to start my FX collection.
But I do love my Revo, cleaned her out last night after 1,000 pellets shot count.

the butt / stock seems to be moving slightly on the air bottle is there any way of correcting this, tried tightening the screw at the top of the butt stock but thatdoesn't seem to help.

Any help will be greatly appreciated

As I recall there is some kind of "collar" you can retrofit to loose the wobble in the inletting of the rear tube.

Give FX a call and ask them about it...
