Barrel Rigidity for Slug Shooting of 90+ FPE

The advancement of slug shooting and the enhancements to the FX Impact have shooters wanting to use heavier slugs at faster speeds. Higher powers require a more rigid barrel to handle these projectiles’ additional energy and vibrations. 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 global collaboration with Johan & Fredrik Axelsson (Sweden), Matt Dubber & Roelf Vorster (South Africa) & Ernest Rowe (USA). The result shows 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 or accidental knocks to the barrel.

The FX Tensioned Barrel System will be sold both as an add-on system that can be used with any existing 700mm STX barrels or sold with a barrel as part of a complete FX Slug Tensioned Barrel Kit. The tensioned barrel system should be used in unison with the FX Carbon Fiber Barrel Liners Sleeves for optimal accuracy.

To push the boundaries of what small-bore slugs can do, FX is introducing an 800mm Slug Tensioned Barrel for the FX Impact. This barrel will allow the FX Impact to shoot heavier slugs at the speeds needed to create a higher BC which will allow the Impact to shoot at further distances.

This barrel has achieved a first in the airgun world, an airgun shooting the same caliber and same grain weight bullet as a standard firearm. The 800mm Slug Tensioned Barrel, when combined with a Power Block and Tungsten hammer weight equipped FX Impact, will shoot a .22
Caliber 40gr slug at speeds of 1030 ft/s. The common weight and speed shot by many professional .22LR competition shooters.

All FX Tensioned Barrels allow the shooter to use a moderator. 1/2” UNF threads come standard on all but the .35 Calibers, which use an M18x1 thread. 

Note: The tensioned barrel is not really needed for pellet shooters because pellet shooting uses much less pressure and produces less movement to the barrel. The existing STX barrels are more than rigid enough to cater to standard pellets and their associated speeds (except for the .35 caliber that does benefit from it).
