The FX Wildcat MKII synthetic delivers a compact, high power, and high accuracy bullpup. Featuring a completely redesigned magazine system for FX, gone are the tricky to load rotary mags, and in their place is a simple 8 round magazine that clicks into place in the breech with two spring-loaded ball bearings on either side of the magazine. The all new Wildcat MKII valve delivers consistent and regulated shots due to the internal regulator. With a full fill of the 230cc, non-removable aluminum air cylinder expect to get approximately 60 full power shots thanks to the regulator (300cc air cylinder in .25 caliber, achieving approximately 50 full power shots). The two-stage match trigger is simply one of the best around. You'd expect triggers like this only on high-end competition grade 10m rifles! It's set at 15oz from the factory and is fully adjustable to tune to your liking.
This FX Wildcat air rifle comes in a soft touch coated synthetic ambidextrous stock. It weighs in at just 6 lbs in .22 cal and 6.5 lbs in .25 cal due to the longer barrel and larger air cylinder. FX spent a lot of time on the finish to the rest of the gun providing a true fingerprint resistant finish. The cocking lever is in a forward position right above the trigger on the right-hand side to provide easy cocking without the need to break your cheek weld and sight line. The actuation is incredibly smooth and the joy of cocking and firing the gun are only superseded by the accuracy.
Like all modern FX air rifles, the FX Wildcat MKII Synthetic features the FX Smooth Twist Barrel Liner. A barrel that is truly innovative, completely rethinking how a barrel can be made. All of this combined clearly shows an exceptional quality and value for an air rifle that will excite the bullpup and tactical fan, while also performing as a full-length gun for the more traditional shooter.

I'm using the fill probe that came with the air rifle and have attached the Air Venturi Male Quick-Disconnect, 1/8" BSPP Female Threads (with Delrin seal inside) to it. The aluminum air cylinder has two openings and I'm using the one that is underneath the cylinder as the fill probe slides in quite easily.
Is the fill probe pushed in all the way? Pushing the fill probe in all the way seems to have an air leak when running the compressor. Is the fill probe suppose to have a washer that prevents the air from leaking out the hole?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Have been using this air compressor on my Umarex Gauntlet for over a year now.
Smooth in every action.
This pcp can and will out shoot it‚€™s shooter. I‚€™ve shot 8 shot groups tighter than reviews of the Wildcat on YouTube.
At 50 yards, I am blown away by its performance.
A silent killer at 59 and 62 yards on two quails. The FX Wildcat is a 5 out of 5 star pcp.
Not so wonderful...instructions, which seem to be more "one size fits all" and the funky little air pressure gauges on the rifle(s). I am always wondering how accurate they are. My only other concern with these rifles are double loading pellets in the barrel. I have not done this, and don't even know if it's possible...and I don't want to try.
Overall these are quiet, highly accurate, fun rifles to own. My few criticisms should not keep you from owning this piece.
I am confident John Mosses Browning himself would slap a 5 star rating on her without pause. And with the highest level of technology and craftsmanship showcased within this rifle I suspect ‚€œQ‚€ would be just a tad bit jealous.
Please see pic for entire ‚€œbundle‚€ that Greg helped me put together. Once again the sevice and equipment was without peer !!!
Is that normal practice?
Anyway the gun is very accurate, but the loudness is loud, nowhere near the Benjamin Maurader I had. It should not be #2 low medium, it almost as loud as a Benjamin nitro piston springer.
POWERFUL, ACCURATE, LIGHT WEIGHT,
THIS IS MY BEST GUN, AND I HAVE HAD 1/2 DOZEN GUNS IN MY TIME.
I NO LONGER HAVE TO EVEN LOOK FOR ANOTHER.
STOP SEARCHING AND
JUST BUY IT!!!!!!! BUY IT, AND DON'T FORGET TO JUST BUY IT!!!!!!!
It was shipped quickly and I received the replacement in about 7 days. The finish is good but the synthetic stock seems a little bit shorter. The remainder of the gun was great and shoots fine. It is more powerful that my other springer 25 calibers and easier to shoot.
It came in a nice cardboard box with foam padding, there is one magazine and a fill adapter included. The manual is in color and seems to be fairly comprehensive.
The cocking lever seems to operate fairly smooth and locks in place. The trigger is awesome best one I felt on an air rifle in sometime. The scope rail is a dovetail not a Picatinny or weaver mount. For another hundred dollars or so you can add that. But at $1,500 retail it probably should have came with it. The air charge adapter as a male threaded end, not a quick release like most air rifles. You have to buy a separate adapter if you want to use this on most hand pumps.
The reason I went with his rifle were the reviews of accuracy, velocity and innovative Barrel design. One big factor was the safety also, not an automatic safety.
I honestly think that FX could have added a few more conveniences to the rifle, picatinny rail, one additional magazine, a more user-friendly air fill adapter.
I haven't shot the rifle yet waiting on my fill adapter. Maybe the accuracy will take away from some of the initial shortcomings. It seems like a great air-gun, but I am a little disappointed FX didn't add a few extras for the price. Also the barrel was pretty dirty- requires cleaning before shooting right out of the box.
I was hoping for a backyard friendly PCP and I think this could be, but isn't as of yet. I have shot only about 100 pellets thru it and it seems very consistent and id definitely well made with fine fit and finish.
I would have given it 5 stars if it was at least as quiet as the marauder.
Very accurate out to 50 yards.
