FX Impact Barrel Tensioner Kit 700 mm with front support
Barrel rigidity for slug shooting at 90+ FPE
The advancement of slug shooting and the enhancements to the FX Impact have shooters wanting to use heavier slugs at faster speeds. This requires a more rigid barrel to handle the additional energy and vibrations created by these projectiles. The new FX Tensioned Barrel System adds the firmness needed to let you reach the potential of the FX Impact with heavy slugs, all while maintaining the extreme accuracy everyone expects from an FX Airgun.
Conceived and created by the famed airgun engineer Hein Frommann, who perfected it through a global collaboration with Johan & Fredrik Axelsson (Sweden), Matt Dubber & Roelf Vorster (South Africa) & Ernest Rowe (USA). The result is really showing off the brain trust at FX Airguns.
From a barrel harmonics perspective, the tensioner system reduces the amplitude of barrel movement which results in better accuracy and more consistency. Secondarily the rigidness of the barrel becomes more temperature stable and will further hold zero regardless of conditions and to handle knocks to the barrel during hunting, PRS courses, etc.
For optimal accuracy the tensioned barrel system should be used in unison with the FX Carbon Fibre Barrel Liners Sleeves.
