Leaks and Regulator issues mainly leading to shot to shot inconsistency. One barrel issue requiring lapping to correct.
I don't know the personalities involved and don't question anybody's ethics but I remain a bit skeptical as the vendors and distribution model have undergone some changes. It could possibly be that other brands have higher margins or there is a desire to dissuade people away from a competitive vendor (like Utah). In other words I'd need more independent data from dispassionate individuals to fairly judge. Also the internet amplification effect, where a few lemons equate to a massive failure. And negative reviews weigh 10-20x more than positive ones.
For the price of the FX's it seems a person wouldn't have to worry about getting good o rings and a good barrel for that matter. It's unreal they'll sell a gun like that for the price they get for them. I'd expect something like that from the cheap Chinese guns but not the FX for crying out loud.Well you do have a point. I a person puts down hard earned cash and has to deal with “repairs” on a new product, what’s the sense of buying it?Mitch
I'm fairly new to airguns and was thinking about ordering an FX. Probably was going to be the Dreamline. Now I'd like more input to the decision making process. What is out there in the airgun world that is closest to the FX Dreamline/Impact/Crown? I'm not necessarily talking about price range but equivalent accuracy / reliability / owner satisfaction / ability to shoot at multiple power levels / ability to adjust reg output pressure / able to swap barrels to shoot slugs / etc. thanks, Edited to add: I almost forgot. Something that would be able to compete in the Extreme BenchRest competition like the FXs do also? Edited again to add: And win as often as the FXs do.
