Fx impact sniper edition. Can't get it past 650 fps


Recommended Posts

Hi guys, have any of you lot had any experience with the fx sniper, and low fps count, I've literally spent two nights, and 3 tins of pellets, trying to fine tune this rifle, but just can't seem to get it past the 600 fps mark. 

On a couple of shots, it's gone up to 800, then even over the 1000 fps mark, but that wasn't even when any adjustments had been made. 

So any help or info would be appreciated, I'm thinking maybe a faulty hammer spring or tensioner.

Hello, if it is still under warranty return to shop, the impact had a lot of problems from the start, if out of warranty I would suggest contacting a FX air rifle specialist who would do a complete overhaul, not sure where you are Daz but you could try the company Bruno ( Chris ) used for his P15 ,

Where's he gone, all these replies and help waiting and nothing.

Hello, seems a few posters never reply after getting help and information from PW members, I just did a search on Google as no experience of the FX impact, I think the impact was another rifle put in the shops with out fully testing to eliminate any faults, many HW 110s have gone back to Hull Cartridge,

Wonder how many have been rejected.

It was brand new, and fac, I found out it wasn't a gun issue, more of testing equipment that was at fault. Thanks for taking to time to post a sensible reply.

What reg pressure and calibre also I take it it's fac.

Reg was 140, 22 cal and yes it's fac, sorry, I give up hope on getting any decent feedback after reading the first couple of irrelevant replies. 

Appreciate taking time to post a decent reply though as did several other members.

What power range is it running at with the reg at 140 deejay? I have the same model in .22 and I’ve set the reg at 95 bar and it’s running 22ft lb min to 40ft lb max on the power wheel without touching the air flow. Obviously it will go higher, but shot count is incredible as it is.
