    Default some new airguns from FXA to really look forward to...

    other manufacturers had better sit up and take note...

    That side lever FX is called the Independence (according to the joint designer Ben Taylor of BTAS) & is a pump/PCP hybrid.

    It operates a three stage pump giving 12 shots from 14 pumps with no power curve at 12 fpe. It's also FAC, giving 6 shots at 30fpe from 17 pumps where the law allows.

    No it is not a springer, it is a pcp with a pump included.

    They say it pumps easily due to the leverage and 3 stage pump.

    In my opinion it would have been allot nicer if they had incorporated the pump arm into the stock as an under lever. Very nice idea but I can't imagine having this great big chunk of alloy sticking outta the side. For the effort they clearly put in, I think this is a design flaw that will eat into their sales.... Lets see.

    I hear you Fox, looks way to clunky for my liking. From the side it looks like those army fold up spades you use to cover up your #2 in the bush. I wonder how much dirt it would collect in that gearbox and how much work it is to clean.
    Looking at the device in the open position it resembles those heavy duty jacks the 'manne' fix to their Landy's and Hilux's.
    Will look better if they fit the lever underneath.
