I've been talking to FX about some improvements they could do, to make it easier to line up. I was telling them,that I was having issues with it registering and asking if it would be safe to mount on a frame of a 9mm?

Well they informed me that they are working on a firearm chrony.

So I could only assume it would be alum housing and able to do more than 1300 fps. I hope it Is fair priced.

Because Shooting Chrony busines is no more, they seemed to went out of business. Such a shame.

According to people that been trying to contact them, their phone doesn't work, website is gone, And BBB says it is no longer in business.

I like the FX for the sake and ease of use. But I couldn't even get it to register with subsonic 22LR. I wish the FX just had 1 setting.

I'm guessing constantly monitoring/scanning for the full range of speed would either take too much CPU, or drain the batteries too fast.

to me

​Have no price indication yet, but i would think they will be set at the same price.


It probably end up being the cheapest firearm radar chronograph on the market.

I went to the indoor range and played with the settings. I was able to have 10 shots register with my 9mm loads.

4.5 grn W231, 124gn Campro fired from a 4.7" barrel. Avg 1070 FPS. With a SD of 20. Low 1044 Hi 1111

So, still the same FX Chrony but just changes made to the settings?

What that about?

I assume that it would be programed for higher velocities, a alum housing and the smoke wouldn't be effected.

Because I think that is why It's not really registering with my PB, as easy as my airguns.
