This FX Impact M3 Bronze is the successor of the Impact MKII and the always innovative FX Airguns has made sure they stay on top of the game when it comes to accuracy and versatility. The FX Impact is known for its multi-adjustability and made some big improvements.
The three most important points where the Impact has significantly changed are the addition of an extra regulator, the use of a bigger power plenum and a renewed adjustment system for the hammer spring preload. We’ll take you through them:
And these aren’t the only innovations FX has added. The smooth working short action cocking lever with enlarged handle is now ambidextrous and can be mounted both left or right. The match trigger already could be adjusted in blade-angle, but now also can be adjusted for length, making a perfect finger position possible whether you have short or long fingers.
A smart addition is the duel hole transfer port for most calibres. On one side you’ll find a small port with the letter ‘P’ This transfer port with slightly restricted opening is perfect for shooting standard pellets. If you twist the barrel, you’ll find the other transfer port, labelled ‘S’. This enlarged port is meant for shooting slugs or heavy pellets. A metal bridge in the middle of the port prevents projectiles from falling in.
The 20 MOA Weaver/Picatinny scope rail is ideal for those who will shoot at longer distances, as it helps you to keep plenty of adjustment range on your rifle scope. Besides this rail, the FX Impact M3 Bronze also has two Weaver/Picatinny accessory rails on the side and one in front of the trigger housing.
FX kept the power adjuster for the valve and the adjustable skeletonised shoulder piece on the FX Impact M3 Bronze, while also keeping the Smooth Twist X barrel with interchangeable Superior liners. These liners are available in different calibres and different twist ratio’s and lengths. They’re easy to change and the rifling is pressed in from the outside, making for a very smooth bore with a minimum of friction.
The FX Impact M3 Bronze is supplied with an average tuning for universal use. The maximum power as stated in the specifications can be reached using the multiple adjustment options on this air rifle.
