Things I liked:

My third FX and im pretty sure this one will be the favorite. FX once again sets the bar high for all other airguns ! Glad I was quick to see and hit the order button before they sold out.

Things I would have changed:

Left Hand Option

What others should know:

Cannot believe how consistent the shot strings are.

Things I liked:

very poor quality control from fx. 20 shots and fasteners on gun were all loose. not a gun for first time pcp purchasers. way to much fiddling with gun to tune so it shoots good. gauges are inaccurate. if you don't have a set of good gauges and a chronograph don't purchase you will be disapointed. dreamline way more user friendly.

Things I would have changed:

better quality control from fx, or purchase from dealer that can set up gun for you. more accurate gauges

What others should know:

could be very frustrating for first time pcp purchaser

    Things I liked:

    This maverick is everything I hoped it would be. Craftsmanship is top notch. I purchased an element scope with this air gun and it is a tack driver. Shot at 50 yards with fx hybrid 44.5 grain slugs in 8 mile winds very little wind drift. I still have to tune it a little more to find that sweet spot but so far sub 1" groups at 50 yards with slus and hadies pellets. I only wish I purchased this a year ago. Going out to 100 yards next range session. Sweet trigger, quieter than my .25 hatsan bullboss. Lots of energy.

    Things I would have changed:

    Price. It's a lot of money. If it was 500$ less I would have purchased it a year ago. I am so glad I finally did. It's a lot to pull out of the wallet but so far I am VERY impressed. For the money I think a couple Allen wrenches should be thrown into the mix.

    What others should know:

    Does not have an anti feed mechanism. You can double feed a pellets or slug. If you do this you'll have to take off the barrel and push slug back into the magazine. However due to the craftsmanship I was able to accomplish this in less than 3 minutes with one Allen wrench (not supplied) with gun.. the pellet initially seated in barrell stayed put and fired without fail into same hole.

    Take a few minutes to tune the regs and adjust the hammer spring. Mine us set at 960fps and is super consistent.

    Things I liked:

    The idea of the gun

    Things I would have changed:

    The gun is built like a toy. Its just not built very well. Feels cheap in the hands. The mags are terrible and made very cheap. Should be 12 dollars for a mag no where near what they ask. The most expensive thing on this gun is the bottle. The barrels are cheap and flimsy the fact you have to buy a bunch of after market stuff just to stiffen the barrel is wrong it should come stock. The cocking handle is cheaply made so be prepared to have to replace it. Most guys are having custom ones made because the factory ones are that bad. The gun has leak issues around the regulators. And creep

    What others should know:

    If your new to airguns dont buy this stay with something built better for the money

    Things I liked:

    Quality construction, ergonomics, this is is hard it's an FX what is there not to like. I have both the Compact and the VP along with this Sniper and I am finding myself really liking the Sniper a little more although the other two have their pluses the Sniper seems to be the way to go for just one rifle. The 20 moa rail on top is a very nice feature also.

    Things I would have changed:

    A longer pic rail on bottom for your bipod would be nice.

    What others should know:

    this could be a one time purchase for someone who doesnt want a safe full of guns.

    Things I liked:

    I waited for this gun for several weeks, not anyone's fault it just was not avaliable. I went on reviews and found out I had to set the two regulators when I got it so I could shoot the heavy .30 caliber pelllets I like to shoot. I reviewed how to do this and thought I had it figured out. So finally I received the gun and before I even shot it I set out to set the two regs. I went by the instructions and opened the second reg so I could read the bar reading on the first. I wanted to increase to `170 bar and the tank was reading 240 so I thought I would be in good shape. As soon as I turned the set screw 1/4 turn it popped the o ring and I lost the screw. Gun is useless! I contacted PA and they said I had to send to FX repair. I was kind of hoping they would just send me another one, but I guess they thought this was operator error, maybe it was but not sure. FX has the gun now and will for probably 3 more weeks before I get it back. Not very satisfied with myself or PA

    What others should know:

    The double reg is probably a good feature, and easier than the tuning the Impact (which I have) but I have that one tuned just right for me. BE CAREFUL on setting double regs, that's all I can say I will re-rate this item once the gun gets back to me and after several months get a chance to enjoy shooting it.

    Things I liked:

    i like the tremondous shot count. at the factory setting and the power wheel set at 1 i got 425 shots at 780fps. the gun is getting more accurate the more i shoot it. it has 5000 rounds thru it now and is way more accurate now than it was out of the box. it will shoot sub 1/2" groups at 50 yards with the 14.3gr crosman dome pellets. and a small plastic pill bottle at 100 yards is childs play. my airgun range goes 150 yds and i have a frying pan at 150 just for fun. i like to hear it ring... dont try to push the crosman pellets over 900 fps, they wont group very well. im shooting them at 880 fps. im wanting to try the JSB pellets but none are avalible right now. OH, mine is a .22.

    Things I would have changed:

    i would like a better cheekpiece, at least adjustable... one thing im not happy about is the scope rail is slightly off, i had 3 scopes on it and i couldnt get enough adjustment out of them to get the gun to zero. FX is suppose to be getting me a new rail some time within the next 2 months. what gripes me is when i called FX the knew instantly what the issue was. if i hadnt all ready waited over 4 months to get this thing i would have sent it back. the girl at P Y didnt know anything about the scope problem, so im disappointed that FX didnt make the dealers aware of the problem. BUT PY did give me the number of FX so i could figure out issue. SO I have shimed the scope using a cut up plastic pop bottle. works good so far. this was a quality control problem at the FX factory. Stuff happens... but i REALLY like the gun now! one more thing READ THE MANUAL!!!!!!! BEFORE SHOOING THE GUN!!!!!!

    What others should know:

    i have reset the regs to 130bar and 100 bar and the power setting wheel at #2. this is a very accurate setting for the 14.3 crosmans shooting 880fps. mIne was set at 120 bar and 90 bar.

    Things I liked:

    OUT OF SIGHT, That is the only way I can put it. Quality and finish are some of the highest lve seen. A remarkable gun out of the box and it delivers everything they said it would. Could not be happer although high dollar I feel I got my monies worth.

    Things I would have changed:

    Wouldn't change anything on the gun as it is easy enough to adapt. However i think your missing a very important aspect of selling such a high quality versatile and interchangeable airgun. To me there needs to be a very detail and comprehensive manual detailing every aspect of interchangeability and tuning. I know I would purchase more options if I were not afraid of screwing something up on a high dollar airgun.

    Very accurate gun I have several FX guns and I keep coming back because of that

    Things I would have changed:

    I got mine after a six month wait and it does not have a 20 moa rail on it kinda afraid to send it back because of the wait time for the next one. If you're going to send these out knowing that they are not correct at least send them with some no limit rings

    Things I liked:

    The rifle so far has performed as expected, I also have a FX impact X MK2 which has set the bar when it comes to accuracy, I am expecting the Maverick to meet or exceed that bar, time will tell.

    Things I would have changed:

    Larger magazine, single shot adapter.

    What others should know:

    Don't mess with the regulators until you have a VERY good understanding of how they function, and how set them up...

    Things I liked:

    The duel regs do offer a constant power which helps greatly still working on different pellets & slugs on which will perform the best in my gun & the ability to set the gun up to your liking.

    Things I would have changed:

    so far nothing

    What others should know:

    be ready to wait a few months to get this gun as with many other airguns the demand is high at this time. I have been using the FX 44 gr pellets & find these are shooting well but have not been able to shoot as much as I would like to check out the overall performance of the gun & to find other ammo that it may also like to shoot.
