Pre-Orders are Becoming a Way of Life!
To find a high-end air gun in stock is becoming more and more of a miracle. This is because there is no USA manufacturers making them; so that leaves quality foreign manufacturers like Air Arms, Anschutz, Beeman, DayState, Evanix, Feinwerkbau, FX, IZH, RWS, Sam Yang, Sumatra, Walther and Weihrauch (Y-Rock).
Something a lot of people don’t know is that practically all of the countries in the world have power restrictions of approximately 12 foot pounds… about enough power to put a pellet through a piece of cardboard or maybe drop a barn swallow or a small rat.
These foreign manufacturers are tooled up to make these 12 foot pounders for a huge already established European market. At the same time they also have to try to make special high power models for the unrestricted US market. Top that with growing firearm restrictions and the scarcity of live ammunition and you have more and more people world wide turning to air guns. As a result, oversees air gun manufacturers are having great difficulty keeping up with the massive flood of US orders.
Orders are placed by the US distributors and then appear with little or no advance lead time. It does no good to constantly ask dealers for a projected delivery time because they honestly do not know for sure.
The best defense against this growing demand is timing. The “I want it now” mentality can actually work in your favor. Those that are not aware of what is going on will wait for the elusive “bird in hand” and wind up like the punk who forgot his Fortune Cookie. Getting on the front end of the demand curve by paying up front (placing a Pre-Order) will let you outsmart the short supply. Placing a Pre-Order does not guarantee delivery but it does increase your chances because there will be those who will drop out and push you higher up the waiting line. Before you know it, I will be sending you the tracking number and you will have prevailed over the status quo. Timing is everything… It is a simple matter of the law of supply and demand.
The FX Wildcat may be the perfect compact airgun. Beautifully balanced, light weight, smooth cocking, and featuring a trigger that would be exceptional on any rifle, let alone a bullpup. The original Wildcat upon its debut in 2015, quickly became a top selling airgun the world over. Now in 2018 the engineering masters from Sweden bring us the Wildcat MKII.
The MKII builds upon the groundbreaking Wildcat, adding the all new FX Interchangeable Barrel system. This is the system that allows users the ability to exchange barrel liners, and if desired upgrade the FX Smooth Twist barrel liner that comes standard with the MKII, to an upgraded FX Smooth Twist X Barrel. These X Barrel liners are a fully rifled smooth twist barrel, available in varying twist rates and bore specifications that tailor to the vast array of airgun projectile weights and shapes.
This new barrel system lends to a Wildcat that is now much lighter in hand. Other upgrades include an upgraded reloading mechanism, upgraded trigger, and updated airflow that obtains better consistency and shot count.
The rest of the original Wildcat stays perfectly undisturbed. Features include the highly accurate internal air regulator, easy load magazine system, finger print resistant finish on all high-grade aluminum parts, and a fully shrouded barrel. The cocking lever has been perfected to be the smoothest operating side lever possible with only the highest quality materials used. Forward placement of the lever provides quick and soft cocking of the gun with only the slightest of hand movement away from the trigger.
The Wildcat MKII enhancements continues to solidify its status as the perfectly designed and executed bullpup featuring all the performance and accuracy that has established FX Airguns as the finest airgun manufacturer in the world.
