I too think it is neat that they got it to work, but I would never tolerate that huge monstrosity hanging out the side of the gun.  The ergonomic trade off simply is not worth it to me - I'd rather use multiple mags.  Maybe I could tolerate it for benchrest, or a seated shoot on prairie dogs, but for general shooting is simply would not work for me.

I really do like the mag speed loaders though . . . .

I agree that it is best suited for bench and stationary pest work and in fact this was the maker's intention (more text from them verbatim):

Q - These things are big! how can I use it hunting in the woods?

A - You don't. These are designed for bench rest, precision target and pest control. They are a precision instrument not designed to be dropped or banged around in the woods.


Although there have been others who said to me they would prefer a single large-capacity mag to eliminate carrying around additional magazines when one is out in the brush.

Sheer genius Charlie! Out of the box thinking for sure! I hope he expands his line to other brands.

I agree Randy, and they do seem to be prepping for expansion, initially to other FX guns although unknown if the design will migrate in its present form to other Brands as well.

Please put it out there for RAW's....would luv a higher capacity magazine! They make 2 size breeches...Thank you!!!!

Yes sir, they are indeed reading this thread I assure you  8) 8) 8)

This is what I need... I like shooting hundreds of rounds per sitting.

I'd like to see an even larger one made...

Also, is this going to be professionally made unit? Or 3D printed like the demo is?

Chuck these will be made the same way as their current product offerings, mainly 3D printed and the components then hand-assembled. The finish you see on their current products as well as this 40-shot ultra-magazine will be the same, you can see their main product lines here:

To folks contacting me privately, I'm sorry but they are only offering this to their prior buyers of their products.

Not trying to enable but I'm thinking if you go to their site and buy one of their current items like a single $25 Mag loader, you'd automatically become a prior buyer... ;D

Wow, that's almost enough to make me want to buy an FX Maverick! Totally awesome. Subscribed to the Youtube channel and saved the website to my favorites.

Might have to wait until they come out for the Impact M3 and get some then? Lordy, I'm gonna have to sell some airguns! Dang it!

 ;D ;D ;D ;D Holy cow !!!!

Glad a lot of people like this, I could never put it on a gun  ;D LOL

I rather load 4 mags and take the one second it takes to change it over, not like if I'm in a firefight and need to keep up suppressive fire  ;D ;D LOL

Anyway, can't wait to see pictures start to show up with the yellow monstrosity on the side of guns  ;D ;D ;D ;D

.....don't take my post to seriously, just making fun  ;D ;D ;D

I think it's brilliant idea and hopefully they will be able to make the manufacturing process more efficient so they can lower the cost.  As it sits, it's too rich for my blood!  I can buy 2 FX magazine for $100 and be close enough to 40 shots for my purposes.  If they could get the cost down to around $50-$60 each, I think they'd make a killing!

Guys I just went to their site and it looks like they reduced the price on the initial offering to $119.99 although I don't know if this is a special introduction or regular price or what but when they were beta testing their prototypes I was initially told it would be $140:

Heck of a price but for benchrest that would be nice and especially if tethered. Hopefully they will make other brands someday too.

Hope they make one for the Crossman Sam. Seems like a perfect combo. 10 shots in a semi auto goes by too fast!!

I wonder if a smaller shot count would be desired too, around 20 or so. One thing is that people would love this for speed competitions as changing a mag and the subsequent shot is the hardest part.
