The FX Maverick is the world’s first Dual AMP regulated airgun. Capable of up to 600 shots at 12ft/lb from a 480cc carbon-fibre bottle, this rifle was purpose built for heavier pellet and slug shooting. The Maverick also features the largest power plenum on an FX rifle. The Dual FX AMP regulator is brilliant in its concept and execution—the first regulator pre-reduces the pressure in preparation for the second regulator, which provides less stress on the second regulator and achieves a more constant output pressure with less standard deviations.
