Setting out to develop a true hunting powerhouse, FX Airguns delivers the FX Impact M3 .35 Cal. Retaining all of the adjustability and desirable features of the existing platform and some big new improvements, the Impact M3 .35 Cal brings power and precision together in a marriage made in airgun heaven! Thanks to the upgraded Power Plenum 720, the Impact now ventures into large game hunting territory with authority.
The FX Impact M3 .35 Cal features an 800mm Smooth Twist X Superior barrel liner, set up to deliver stunning performance with larger pellets. Sending pellets downrange at high speeds and generating over 156 FPE (with the FX Slug Power Kit) at the muzzle, the Impact M3 is firmly a part of the medium and large game hunting conversation. Coming standard with a removable 580cc carbon fiber air cylinder capable of a stunning 45 shots per 250 BAR fill, shoot with confidence whether you’re in the field or in a benchrest competition. The premium side shot magazine holds 18 rounds in .35, so you always have lead on tap.
Of course, the beauty of the Impact platform is the ability to change calibers and settings at will. The highly touted dual AMP (Adjustable Match Precision) regulators, micro and macro external hammer spring adjustment, and external valve control adjustment are all at your fingertips on the Impact M3. And because the rifle utilizes the Smooth Twist X liner system, swapping calibers or liners is a breeze. The ergonomics are perfect for shooters of all shapes and sizes, and make the operation of the rifle seamless. And the match grade trigger ensures you have full control over each and every shot, to place them exactly where you desire.
The FX Impact defines what a modern airgun can be. A rifle without limits. It is a once in a generation rifle. A rifle that advances and evolves to push the boundaries of what compressed air can achieve. The Impact M3 once again redefines this high standard with groundbreaking advancements, upgrades, and a sole unwavering focus on creating the most advanced, most accurate, and most capable airgun you’ll ever shoulder.
The improvement within the M3 start with its dual regulators. The 1st regulator pre-reduces the air pressure in preparation for the 2nd regulator. This provides less stress on the 2nd regulator and achieves a more constant output pressure with less standard deviations.
The FX Power Plenum 720 is the new energy source of the Impact M3. This larger diameter plenum and its 72cc volume of compressed air provides both the precise amount of air and the power needed to propel the projectile. This new plenum works in coordination with the M3’s porting and valving to deliver the best power and efficiency available.
One of the most substantial upgrades to the Impact M3 is the user interface to the rifle: The Quick Tune System. This essentially tool-free system encompasses everything a shooter could use to fine tune their rifle’s accuracy, allowing unlimited possibilities. Adjust the air pressure the rifle is using via the dual regulators, how long the valve stays open with the front valve adjuster, and now adjust the strength of the hammer with the completely redesigned micro and macro power adjustments. The Rear Macro Power Wheel is a 16-step power wheel that adjusts the strength of the hammer in increments of 5-15 FPS (depending on caliber and reg pressure). This works in conjunction with the Micro Fine Adjustment. This tunes the hammer strength in incredibly small increments of just 1-2 fps with each click of the barrel roller, all at your fingertips. The combination of these is unrivaled in the airgun world!
As of early 2022, FX Introduced the Impact M3 with the new rear Power Block. The power plenum stages the power capabilities of the FX Impact, the rear block handles that transfer of power much like a car’s carburetor. FX has completely redesigned the rear block and the valve house which allows for better air flow, efficiency, and power potential.
The Power Block will be especially useful for those who desire to shoot heavy slugs. The pressure in the plenum can better translate to the pressure behind the slug upon firing, allowing higher speeds and power. Those shooting heavy slugs are encouraged to add the FX Impact Tungsten Hammer weight to also allow for higher working pressures.
Other improvements are vast and include an ambidextrous short throw cocking lever with enlarged handle, dual transfer ports on most calibers, tightened barrel housing tolerances to provide a tighter fit and better accuracy to the rifle, tightened breech tolerances to house the Side-Shot Magazine, an updated trigger that provides a crisp second stage break while also allowing the trigger post to move forward or back, 20 MOA built into the scope rail, Dual Wika manometers, and an abundance of forthcoming optional accessories.
The FX Impact is firmly seen as the greatest airgun made. The proof is undeniable. Shooters flock to the FX Impact, competition lines are dominated with the presence of this rifle, and shooters continue to expand what an air rifle can do with one rifle; the FX Impact. Why? It performs, it delivers, and it continues to provide the foundation for innovation. The FX Impact M3 advances the claim: the FX Impact M3 is the most advanced, most exciting and most accurate air rifle available.
If you’ve been itching for a big bore that offers true precision without skimping on power, the FX Impact M3 .35 Caliber is the rifle you’ve been waiting for!
