This FX Wildcat MKII Compact air rifle comes in a soft touch coated synthetic ambidextrous stock. It weighs in at just 6.25 lbs. 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 The actuation is incredibly smooth and the joy of cocking and firing the gun are only superseded by the accuracy.
Another standout feature for this rifle is the accessory rail, which is Picatinny, rather than Dovetail which is found on the full size versions of the Wildcat. The Wildcat MKII features a 500mm standard Smooth Twist barrel housed in FX's new Interchangeable Barrel Liner System. This allows the ability to upgrade to a Smooth Twist X barrel liner. The barrel also includes a 5Ē moderator, which will significantly reduce the report. Despite being a compact, this rifle still retains the performance of the full size version Wildcat MKII .25 cal in terms of velocity and a staggering 47 ft/lbs of energy. 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.

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.
60+ shot count
Easy load mags.
Ergonomic ( even for being a lefty )
