Again many thanks Polar Wolf. I'm currently in the process of selling my FX Boss but thankfully none of the issues you've highlighted with the Wildcat affect the Boss....and certainly not the quality aspects. This matter really concerns me (and Darryl) and not something I'd expect from FX. The only other model I've had was the Mk1 Verminator and that was superb. Clearly FX know how to engineer a gun but fall down on quality where it counts. Your observations are extremely helpful. Ian.

+1. I have to move on from the Wildcat if the lower, and frankly, tempting price also insinuates a lower-than-expected qualitative result. I'm with you on this one, Ian.

Yes Darryl I'm holding off getting one at the moment. The Impact looks interesting so I'll be following with interest how reviews proceed on that but initially they look good.....but saying that so did the Wildcat's first feedback comments. Ah well the joys of Airguning haha.

Ian, I'm waiting on field reports about the Huben K-1 semi-auto bull pup. It's got two interesting features: the regulator can be adjusted from outside the stock; likewise the power can be adjusted from outside the stock; it has a built-in 19-shot magazine. go to www.MrodAir.com it has an interesting video made by those guys. Drawbacks? 5000 psi max working pressure might be an issue. I found a link to that YouTube video here:

Looks an awesome piece of kit. The shot count of 40 on it's lowest pressure seems poor though and would put me off as that's around my minimum requirement. It's another reason why Polar Wolf's findings of 32 from his .25 Wildcat (apart from the other issues) adds to my disappointment of the gun. When I was getting 48 shots from my Boss which produced 78FPE (albeit with a 500cc bottle) I'd expect more from the lower calibre Wildcat. Thanks for the link.....very interesting. Ian.

Managet to load several pellets in to the barrell of my Wildcat,,it all ended up With Return to dealer,gunsmith. The barrell had expanded and had to be changed. extra cost for me. Terrible,because I had my gun for 1 week when this happened. it has now been With the dealer for almost 2 months! I hope to get it back soon. Well,,on such a gun,you should expect that the barrel didnt expand when loading several pellets into the barrel. Well,what about a safety mechanism tha prevents such accidents?
