Woody’s have just received a batch of the new double-action MCX “Virtus” PCP rifle, the latest product from Sig and their first pre-charged pneumatic airgun, the perfect tool for target shooting and pest control.
Following the success of the CO2-powered MCX and MPX, the “Virtus” breathes fresh air into the old CO2 MCX model. The “Virtus” features Sig’s patented 30-round rapid pellet magazine, which feeds 30 .22 rounds and features that slick MCX styling based on the AR-15, with a rear-mounted PCP tank for better balance and accuracy and the capacity, to deliver more than 150 shots per fill. The rifle also features flip-up front and rear sights. This new breed of MCX, unlike its CO2 counterpart, will deliver a power level of up to 11 ft/lb kinetic energy.
The “Virtus’ trigger mechanism has been changed which means that in order for a second shot to be taken, you need to push the trigger forward.
Sig Sauer have chosen to modify the Sig Sauer “Virtus” PCP in order to reduce the rate of fire. Whilst this is not technically a legal requirement, Sig have chosen to make this decision and stand by it.
This still allows for fun shooting whilst slowing down the rate of fire at the same time as ensuring that this rifle does not breach the spirit of the law.

Woody’s have managed to get our hands on one of the scarcely popular “Impact” MK 2’s in .177 calibre which will give 180 shots when filled, supplied with a 38 shot mag and is finished in a stainless steel.
The FX Impact is one of the most technically advanced air rifles that FX has ever produced to provide the shooter with maximum flexibility and accuracy like never before. The frame of the Impact is made from lightweight and strong aluminium which is finished in a silver stainless finish which is hard wearing and looks great. The grip comes from Hogue and is a standard AR15 part which allows you to customize the rifle with other similar grips. The rear butt pad is height adjustable and several weaver mounts are built around the rifle to allow accessories such as bipods and lasers to be added. The loading system is via a side lever action which is located just above the trigger for quick and smooth reloading each time, with a lever safety just below the lever which is easily accessed and operated. The trigger has been specially designed so that it doesn’t rely on rods and linkages to operate which makes it smooth and predictable. The rifle is fitted with a regulator which can be adjusted externally which is why the gun is fitted with 2 pressure gauges, one for the 480cc weight saving carbon fiber air bottle and one for the air tube from the cylinder to the barrel. The Impact MK2 now incorporates the new FX Smooth Twist X Barrel which is a fully rifled barrel liner. FX’s proprietary process of imparting the inner rifling of the barrel from the outside of the steel tubing, is an outstanding upgrade in airgun accuracy. This Smooth Twist X Barrel is housed in the Interchangeable Barrel Liner System allowing the shooter to swap and change barrel liners of various twist rates, bore specifications and more; all to tailor the barrel to different projectile sizes. The breech and barrel assembly also incorporate a quick-change system that allows for any of the calibers (.177, .22, .25) to be used. All that is required is an extra barrel and pellet probe for each caliber. The gun is currently available in .177 caliber with full twist rifling.
