    Things I liked:

    Quality , adjustability , caliber change options , accuracy , availability of after market accessories !

    Things I would have changed:

    My only gripe was the female foster fitting supplied by FX when I purchased my MK II .22 , the one supplied isnt long enough ! I didnt see one on Pyramyd Air but you can purchase a good one on line with Saber Tactical that works great ! FX needs to address this !

    What others should know:

    Expensive yes , if you are serious about a quality PCP with infinite flexibility I would highly recommend it ! Its Tough and one you can take hunting without worries of scratching unlike these other PCPs you only want to look at but are afraid to damage ! Yes I own those pretty ones as well and its always in the back of my mind .

    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:

    Absolutely amazing! As the son of a gunsmith I have been around firearms all of my life. Due to an unfortunate event I can no longer own a firearm. I thought I was out of luck. Until an off hand search sent me to Pyramid Air. I had no idea that air guns were so capable. One of their online experts recommended the FX Impact to me and he was on the money.

    Things I would have changed:

    nothing

    What others should know:

    Out of the box my ,25 caliber shot through 1" of plywood at 50 yards with laser precision. It only took me two adjustments of the scope to shoot a 1/2" group. I have since watched several Youtube videos and have learned that it is set to a very conservative level and has lots more power on tap. Watch some of the videos. The FX Impact is the best of the best.

    Things I liked:

    The FX Impact is all that I hoped it would be. Powerful,laser accurate and most surprisingly quiet. Even though there are no baffles in the moderator, this thing is quiet. I have not found a pellet that it doesn't shoot well. Mine is .25 cal so there aren't many pellets to choose from, but I have tried about 7 different pellets. The magazine works smoothly, is easy to load and install/ remove. The balance of the gun is very even and overall it is light.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing much to improve here. It would be nice if you got 2 magazines.

    What others should know:

    Whatever your normal pellet purchase, double it with this airgun. With 28 in the magazine, the pellets go away in hurry.

    Things I liked:

    The FX Impact X .22 with the 700 mm with a superior barrel is awesome. If you order one, be patient. Other than that, the Impact is so freaking accurate, it's really unbelievable. The FX is also very well made, smooth action and a boat load of power. I have mine set up with 110 psi at the regulator. The power wheel set at 4 and pellet speed is consistent at 940 fps using Exact Jumbo Diablo 15.89 gr or Hades 15.89 gr. At 48', it's going through the same hole!

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing really. The only thing that could be better is the trigger action. The Air Arms S510 SX Xtra FAC has a lighter trigger action so maybe something in between.

    What others should know:

    You will need a (FX) chronograph for fine tuning.

    Things I liked:

    Accuracy, overall design concept and look, magazine capacity, ease of barrel assembly/disassembly, range of barrel caliber interchange

    Things I would have changed:

    Verification that rifle does not leak prior to shipment to customer.

    What others should know:

    Upon pressurizing rifle with air found two leaks. One was at the front of power plenum. Had to disassemble and replace 9x1.5mm o-ring that was damaged. Also had to make sure front of power plenum was seated as far as possible into receiver. Second o-ring is barely captured in receiver tube. Looks to be a dimensional design issue. Second leak was at the tank pressure gauge. Found this to be incomplete solder/braze joint at pressure gauge port. Fixed by peening copper tube outwards. After these two leaks were fixed rifle has held pressure.

    Things I liked:

    I have never shot a more accurate PCP. At .30 caliber it is not that loud. What is loud is the sound of the impact. It is definitely not back yard friendly, unless you surround your backyard with 1/4 inch steel plating. Lol.

    Things I would have changed:

    It would be nice if it came with pellets.

    What others should know:

    Read, read, read the manual. You do not want to lose your warranty.

    Things I liked:

    Very nice high quality air rifle, extremely accurate.

    Things I would have changed:

    One thing that I would change is the fill port. Its hard to release the quick connect.

    Things I liked:

    Supremely accurate, smooth action, great shot count , high capacity magazine (23 rounds in.30 cal) smooth twist x barrel rarely needs cleaning. Its light, it has increadable tunability. Its not uncommon for mine to shoot 5 shots in a row at exact fps The addition of the power plenum allows you to shoot anything from a .177 to the newly released .35 cal with just a quick barrel, and pellet probe change.

    Things I would have changed:

    Fill probe could be a little easier to disconnect from, but its really not that bad. Cant think of much else id want to change.

    What others should know:

    Clean the barrel before you shoot it... Don't panic if its not shooting dime size groups at 50 yards right out of the box... You should be getting good groups right from the factory but it gets better as it breaks in. The action gets smoother the gun settles into its tune, the barrel breaks in etc. The real magic happens when you fine tune it. If you put in the time to fine tune this air gun you will be rewarded with supreme accuracy as long as you do your part, and you have a good scope... Before i bought this i had 2 marauders in .25 cal. I really loved tbem because they were my first pcp airguns, and were way better then anything else id shot at the time, but they had poi issues.. common with that gun. Next gun i bought was a cricket in .25. No more poi shift, and way better shot count but not as accurate as id hoped it would be at long range, and heavy. The impact has no poi shift even when taking barrel off and putting it back on, and it has unmatched accuracy when tuned.

    It is a lot of money, but you get what you pay for. This gun is made incredibly well, and you will not find all the features this gun has on any other gun.

    I expected this rifle to be high quality and accurate based on my research prior to my purchase. However, it has exceeded my expectations in all aspects! Also, the service from Pyramyd Air has been outstanding.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing!

    What others should know:

    FX obviously knows how to produce a great rifle!

    Things I liked:

    .25 600mm - Light, accurate, large magazine that is easy to load. The sidelever is smooth and takes very little effort. The case is better than most "free cases" and will work with a scope. A lot of tuning options.

    Things I would have changed:

    Expensive The fill is so deep, it can require a screw driver to release a standard quick disconnect. They provide a different quick disconnect, but that only works for one fill device. If you have more than one fill device, add a male end on their quick disconnect and use it as an adapter for whatever you fill with. Even with the 600mm, the moderator has to be removed to put it in the case. A slightly longer (1/2") case would let it stay on.

    What others should know:

    If you add the Saber Tactical FX Impact Pump Action Kit, it solves the fill issue. There is an opening inside the trigger guard that makes the connect and disconnect of the fill easy.

    This rifle is all quality from the cocking lever to the trigger pull.

    Things I would have changed:

    A longer picatinny rail for bipod mount especially with the 700mm barrel.

    What others should know:

    With the addition of the new power plenum and interchangeable barrels it does not get any better.

    Things I liked:

    With the new addition of the power plenum we now have power to spare as well as additional shot count. Also the new gauges are much more accurate then before.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing at this time.

    What others should know:

    This is the best platform in a pcp Airgun ever.looking forward for the new 35 cal. Barrels witch will up the games to big bore hunting.

    Very thing from the gun, very smooth, I had nothing more to say because most of airgun owner know that.

    Things I would have changed:

    Price is little bit high, if this price it should come with 580cc bottle, or extra magazine.

  • 4.0 4.0

    5.0 5.0

    Things I liked:

    Quality.

    Things I would have changed:

    The air fill location or the ease of using the air fill location. I would also change scope rail so it could move up and down from front to back so that when you mount the scope you can adjust for short or longer range without adding third party products and spending time figuring all that out.

    What others should know:

    This is not a buy and shoot gun. You will have to invest heavily in an air replacement device, as well as a riser or special scope rings. This is unfortunate as the cost on this gun is very high.

    Modern tech. at it's best. 700mm barrel rifle is shorter than 400mm barrel crown!

    What others should know:

    It seems quieter than the crown.
