The FX Wildcat Compact has been a hugely popular compressed air rifle for years thanks to its compact and lightweight nature.
Due to the bullpup design with the action and magazine in the back of the stock, this rifle maintains an efficient long barrel despite the short package.
Thanks to the wide adjustment range, this rifle is ideal for a large number of uses
The stock is made of a durable synthetic stock with soft coating and makes the Wildcat very ergonomic.
Thanks to the pleasant balance, it is also very agile to use.
The Wildcat MK3
The airguns from FX are well known for their high precision and adjustability.
As the third generation in the Wildcat series, this rifle brings a wide range of features to the table.
- Higher power potential
The MK3 is equipped with an enlarged plenum and optimized airflow.
The plenum is the part that contains the regulated air used for the shot. A larger plenum gives greater power potential and optimizes the rifle for lower regulator pressure.
- Rear Power Adjuster
On the back of the action is now an adjustment wheel for the hammer spring that easily adjusts the power in 8 steps (0-7).
This alows the user to optimize the Wildcat for different ammunition types and use-cases
At position 0, a small Allen key can be inserted into the adjusting wheel to fine-tune the hammer spring pressure at a micro level.
- Adjustable AMP regulator
The regulator ensures that the rifle constantly uses the same pressure with every shot.
As a result, rifles with a regulator are significantly more accurate than models without this part.
The AMP regulator from FX is adjustable in pressure, which means that this rifle can be adjusted for multiple uses in conjunction with the power adjuster.
For example, a higher regulator pressure gives more power, and a lower pressure gives more shots per fill.
- Smooth Twist X borrel system
Like many other FX rifles, the Wildcat MK3 is equipped with the STX barrel system.
These barrels contain interchangeable liners where the pulls and fields are rolled in externally.
Thanks to this system, the barrels and liners with different pitches and lengths can be exchanged for different uses.
By default, this rifle is equipped with the STX Superior liner, which is optimized for pellets and light slugs
- Dual transferport
The transferport is the part that allows the air to enter the barrel when shooting.
By loosening the barrel and rotating it 180 degrees, it can switch between using the smaller "pellet" port, or the larger bride-style "slug" port.
