Things I liked:

Tire of your old pcp that shoots good one day then like crap the next, just get this solve the accuracy problem. Yes this is very expensive but is absolutely a tack driver to say the least! Shooting JSB 18.1g from a rest 50 yards i can put them in less than a dime, and at 100 yards in a crosman premier pellet tin. With over 10,000 rounds it still impresses me every time i shoot it and functions as it did the first day i got it home!!!

Things I would have changed:

Stronger or redesigned cockin block pin and linkage, adjustable cheepiece, butt pad options, optional height picatinny scope rail, larger fill port,

What others should know:

Be careful with the cocking mechanism if its hard to cock dont force it, most likely it is the pellet probe hanging on the magazine if it is forced the cocking block pin will break! The sideshot large capacity magazine is a must have!!

What others should know:

This gun after waiting for it came to me broken right out the box not holding any air. For a gun thats over a $2,000 price tag shouldnt come to me like that. After contacting fx support for a fix after a month still no phone call not even a email from them. They lost the reputation in my books same from a few of my friends that was going to buy a few guns from them. Now they looking elsewhere. I have a few pcps that cost no more then $500 that has never gave me any issues even after 3+ years continue use. Take it for a grain of salt if you want to but you can spend half that and get a good quality gun without a over priced price tag for the FX name.

    Things I liked:

    Very high quality and very accurate. Im getting 140 shots per fill in 25 caliber which is awesome! The included suppressor works very well and I do not feel the need to upgrade it. Trigger is incredibly smooth. Love the ability to change calibers from .177 to .357 and the adjustability to shoot pellets or slugs and all different weights.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would extend the bottom pic rail under the bottle instead of having to buy aftermarket. Also should include a *bag rider* on the stock. This should not have to be an aftermarket item and I will be buying both of these items.

    What others should know:

    Medium to high rings are needed as the stock doesnt drop at all. I stated with low but realized after the first shots the scope was too low. I shoot left handed and the magazine does not interfere at all. I thought it would and was wrong.

    Things I liked:

    It's very accurate, good shot count, tunable, light weight and not very loud. Comes in a custom case.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would make the stock adjustable. It has zero adjustments. I would charge the fill port because it is very narrow and difficult to install and remove the service QDC.

    What others should know:

    This rifle came with a air leak and suppressor alignment problems. PA took care of my return and sent me a RAW HM 100x LRT. It is also leaking but between the two I like the accuracy better on the RAW.

    Things I liked:

    Been an avid shooter of firearms and airguns for over 50 years. This is by far my favorite gun I've ever owned. Incredibly accurate right out of the box.

    Things I would have changed:

    Manufacturer should make foster fitting more accessible or supply an extended adapter.

    What others should know:

    The foster fitting is recessed which is a really nice feature for protecting it. Just make sure you have an extended fitting on your fill hose. It is extremely difficult to remove the supplied fitting especially if you have gloves on or have limited dexterity like most of us old duffers. Luckily for me, the customer service rep at Pyramid Air gave me a heads up when I ordered it.

    Things I liked:

    THE TRIGGER. The fit and finish, construction practices and the design. The accuracy is second to none, and since I hunt in my backyard, I love that it is mouse fart quiet. Life is grand. I have been shooting, hunting and competing since I was six years old and I am not Seventy-Seven. This is the finest, most accurate rifle I have ever owned. In fairness, it is also the most expensive rifle I have ever owned. I will NEVER part with this beauty. You will never pull a better trigger.

    Things I would have changed:

    A dear friend and shooting partner asked me this question last week, and my reply was that it was more rifle than I could even imagine. However as I sometimes wax facetious, I would love to have the magazine as the Red Ryder BB gun that I still have. You know, use a funnel and pour in several hundred pellets (BB)s and shoot it all day. Bearing in mind, that with my present 38 shot FX Mag, it is almost as good as the Red Ryder.

    What others should know:

    A long female foster fitting comes with the gun. You WILL need a threaded to male foster to connect this long adapter to your air supply.

    Amazing rifle very smooth solid build its a little pricey but you get what you pay for. 30 cal accuracy is phenomenal Just got rifle other day so have only been able to test at 70 yards in my back yard but I have no doubts this gun will shoot 1 inch groups at 100 150 yards plenty of knockdown power as well

    Things I liked:

    Its everything they say it is. If you like to tinker, it's the airgun for you.

    Things I would have changed:

    I knew going into it that I was still going to buy more expensive bits to add-on, change, upgrade, but it still hurts the wallet...oh, well, just don't look at your totals... Also, for taller, longer-limbed shooters (I'm 6ft4in), the stock pull length was a little short for my comfort on the bench, so an adjustable length buttpad is a great first purchase. I designed and 3D printed my own, adding about 3inches.

    What others should know:

    The harmonic tuner should be one of your next upgrades, it does make a difference, and gives you more trigger time finding the sweet spot. Also, the stock moderator does almost as good a job of cutting the sound as a Donny FL Ronin or Fat Boy 2.0. I bought them both and ran a dB meter (+/- 3 dB via a phone app), so very little difference to the ear. If I were to do it again, I'd put the money elsewhere. Also, the aftermarket moderators are heavier and you will get barrel droop and a POI shift, that's where the tuner really helps (but also adds to further barrel droop). CF liner sleeve was my second best upgrade, particularly for the longer 700mm barrel. Finally, adjustable rings are a must if you plan to shoot far...especially considering barrel droop.

    Things I liked:

    Smooth like a baby's bottom. Just took it out of the box threw a brand new Arken scope on it and was hitting a 2" target from 60-65yards standing without one adjustment. Looking forward to making it into my slug-only gun. I own a bunch of guns so my expectations were high and I'll report back once I get it dialed in the way I like'em. FX needs to up their game with availability.

    Things I would have changed:

    Have barrel options and not the ones that they have in stock without preordering them. So if I wanted a .25cal 700mm slug barrel make that an option. Not a 350.00 add-on. Gladly pay a little more for it. That way I don't have a barrel I'd rarely if ever use. I already have a 30cal but I wanted this gun and didn't want to preorder and wait months. So now another 350 to get it into slugs.

    What others should know:

    Don't buy this as your first PCP, period. Start with a lower-end FX. Make sure when you add on custom parts they actually improve things. Do not tune the gun until you know the steps or you will be in trouble.

    Things I liked:

    I purchased the FX M3 in .25 caliber about 60 days ago. After a couple of tins shot I can say this is easily the most accurate rifle in my collection, period. This includes a 1/2 MOA .270 titanium/carbon fiber barreled powder burner and several other sub MOA powder and air rifles. It will consistently stack pellets in one hole at 50yds. The M3 is light, compact, and easy to tune to any velocity desired. I also installed the carbon fiber barrel liner and this tightened groups measurably. So far so good, quality seems excellent, everything fits and functions like it should, holds air, is very quiet. I may have found the perfect mini-sniper for pest control. The price is high but you get what you pay for.

    Things I liked:

    My first PCP and it would appear I chose a good one. This rifle is AWESOME! At 25 yards I was able to get two 10 shot groups the size of a quarter. With practically ZERO recoil, this rifle is so easy to shoot.

    Things I would have changed:

    Although I didn't have any problems with it, I'm not a big fan of how the magazine pops in and out. I'm sure I will get used to it over time, but it's not exactly intuitive.

    What others should know:

    The shot is a little louder than I thought it would be. I shoot in my back yard which is in an urban environment. I don't think the neighbors will complain, but I thought it would be a little quieter.

    Things I liked:

    Almost Everything, very nice, well manufactured, solid, lots of options, accurate, lots of add on available.

    Things I would have changed:

    A wider clip to accommodate longer slugs would be great. Also this gun like others with circular clips are prone to mis loads that can jamb the slug cockeyed between the clip and barrel. Once this happens and you can't finesse it loose; cutting the clip in half is the only option to clear it. (As far as I can figure) IF it had a slightly loose loading pin with a slightly rounded loading end that would allow pushing the slugs dished end into the barrel even if it is slightly crooked. As it is now; if the slug is on an angle the flat end of the pin catches the inside of the dished end of the slug and trys to force it in. Lead is soft and instead of self centering it attempts to force it in. Come on FX or a add on manufacturer: give us an upgrade please.

    What others should know:

    Great gun, just baby the loading, especially the shorter, stubby slugs.

    Things I liked:

    ACCURACY is unbelievable. . Trigger? Unbelievable. . .smoothest on the market. Cocking . . . .Smooth as silk. Magazine loading. . .easy as Pie. Yeah, I like it all. . .

    Things I would have changed:

    This is going to sour a lot of folks, but This is my first AR style gun. . . My personal opinion is that the AR gun style is pathetic, worthless, cumbersome, ill fitting, and I am totally NOT impressed. With the above said, it is NOT a negative thing on the gun, because a lot of folks like that kind of stock/gun. I just wish it had a normal stock that fit up against me like a real gun. Thus. . .a choice of stock would be nice. I do understand such a choice would be difficult because of how the gun is loaded.

    What others should know:

    No choice.. you had BETTER purchase an extended female air extension to fill it up. If you don't, you will find yourself with very little grip to remove the filler. My fingers are way to big for a normal size female filler attached to this gun. This gun has a floating barrel. . .do NOT touch it when shooting.. . .or forever hold your peace. This gun is quiet. . .extremely quiet. This gun shoots JSB exact at about 860fps for around the best accuracy. Out of the box, this gun was set at 940fps. At 60 yards, that was about a 3 to 3.5 inch CTC. I dialed it down to 860fps, and the accuracy improved to less than 1 inch at 60 yards, and sometimes less than 1/2 inch if I bit my tough just right. Yes, the gun is expensive, but it is well worth the money. Longevity is yet to be seen. I have only put about 3 tins through this gun so far.

    Things I liked:

    The gun has the power, its accurate, the fact that you can adjust the power without going inside the gun. I have the 25 cal with a 600 mm barrel and its quite with the silencer. I can stretch it out to 1100 fps so thats more than enough power.

    Things I would have changed:

    As always "THE PRICE" $2100.00 is pretty steep for a gun but then again hobbies can get to be expensive.

    What others should know:

    Took me some time to figure out this gun, but I also got help from a pyramyd rep. They should tell you that the 1st reg is for power and the 2nd reg is for shot count. The 1st reg will go up and down until the gun settles. I have my 1st reg set @ 160, the 2nd reg set @ 120, valve adjuster on line 4, micro on 3.5 and the hammer spring micro set on 8 and i'm getting 955 avg fps and 3.5 mags before I have to air back up, and I have the 600 mm barrel. For this gun in 25 cal with a 600 mm barrel it will do 1100 fps but I don't need that much power for what I hunt/shoot. Glad to know that I have the extra power though if needed.

    Things I liked:

    Very good gun! I haven't done a lot of tuning yet, just lightened the hammer spring to get the fps lower for H & N 18 grain pellets. seem as though it would be very easy to tune further if you wanted to. It shoots very well for me.

    Things I would have changed:

    A second included magazine would be nice and of course a lower price.

    What others should know:

    This is a very good, accurate rifle. The included hard case is very nice. I have an ATN 5 to 20 X-Sight 4K Pro day/night vision scope on mine. This is a very large scope, which the included hard case can handle, but when you install the ABL laser rangefinder it makes the scope too large to be able to close the lid on the case.

    The ability to quickly change tunes is great. Large capacity magazine. Large shot count per fill.

    Things I would have changed:

    Offer the .177 with a 600mm barrel, not a 500mm barrel in a 600mm shroud.

    What others should know:

    I have the Impact M3 in .177. So far I'm not impressed with the accuracy. Every H&N pellet I have (Baracuda Match, Hunter, Hunter Extreme) and the JSB Beast 16.2 gr. will not group well at 32 yards. All of the previously named pellets are lasers in my .177 AV Avenger. I've wasted 3 tins of Beast trying different speeds/tunes to no avail. I have some JSB Hades, Monster and Monster redesigns on order. If they don't group well then it's a wash for the .177 and pellets. NSA 12.5 gr at 977 fps group about a nickel size 50 yards. Maybe the M3 will be slug only until I can get a caliber change kit in .22 or .25 I posted a head to head match up with my .177 Avenger and the .177 Impact shooting JSB Beast. The Avenger can and does shoot better but aiming for the small red dot was difficult due to lens flare.
