We bring to you… the brand new, seemingly out of nowhere, FX Impact M3, not the MKIII but the M3 (must be a marketing decision). This new arrival is so exciting, bringing things we’ve asked for forever, to things we never knew we needed!
For starters we get something I’ve wanted forever, the ability to have the cocking lever on the right OR the left side. Being able to cock with the left hand with your trigger finger never needing to leave its position, is amazing for those rapid fire, or really any, situation. Along with that new ambidextrous design, they’ve shortened that cocking lever throw roughly 1/2″, so your shots can be that much quicker while still retaining that buttery smooth action.
The M3 now has dual regulators, one for the initial regulation out of the tank and then the main regulator that regulates the air that actually propels your round. You might be asking “why would I need two regulators?” Well the answer to that is pretty simple, and a bit complicated. The main benefit is to save your regulator from wear and tear, the first regulator lowers the initial pressure down for something more manageable for the main regulator to deal with, which was the main reason you couldn’t (or shouldn’t) use a 300 bar bottle on the front of the previous Impacts. The next benefit you might have guessed, is the ability to move from a 250bar tank to a 300 bar tank, more shots per fill!
Gone are the days of A-E 1-5 settings and FX brought in the simplified power settings of 1-16 on a dial, so much simpler. Also gone are the days of having to adjust your hammer spring tension with a 1.5mm Allen key, that would slip around and scratch up that pretty finish. In its place is an innovation that will please anyone planning on tuning their own gun, a thumb adjustable screw!
FX have improved an already near-perfect air-rifle, with the things listed above along with the larger power plenum, genuine WIKA gauges and so many available upgrades that were just not possible on the previous versions. FX will be releasing new upgrades for this M3 soon, like the ability to move your main regulator from the rear, downward facing location, to the right side of the body, angled at 45° behind the trigger, facing the shooter.
