    I really like the looks of the HW 100 pcp with laminate stock.

  2. M Wolf says:

    I’ve been wanting a bullpup for years, but didn’t want to deal with the idiosyncrasies of the Russian “pups.” I love FX’s designs and adore my Verminator. When I saw the Wildcat, I immediately called AOA and put down a deposit. I can’t wait!

  3. Jim Sower says:

    So, it looks like FX has given up on the Indy Arrow…is that right?

    1. AOA Staff says:

      No. There was a delay in production, but they are supposedly ready now. We have a standing order so, hopefully they will become available very soon.

  4. Jack Sowell says:

    So, any idea of availability of FX Impact and possible list price? Springtime, maybe summer?

    1. AOA Staff says:

      The Impact is estimated as a summer release. Pricing is not yet set.

  5. Frans Herman says:

    Amazing 90 ft/lbs for the FX Wildcat .30. Can not wait!
    What is the length, fill pressure and air capacity?

    1. AOA Staff says:

      No claims for power have been made or confirmed yet. We will know more shortly and post facts when available.
