FX Dreamline question?
« on: February 11, 2019, 11:37:56 PM »
I know I don't see a lot or maybe nothing about FX airguns on here but there has to be some folks in GTA that buy and shoot them. Anyway I was wondering if anyone has bought any configuration of the Dreamline that has been out for a little while now.

  I like the price of them and I think one would fill a nice nitch in my airgun arsenal.  I am waiting for the tactical version to come out. I was hoping that if someone bought one, that they might be willing to share their thoughts and insights on it.  Also hoping I could ask question about different things I see on the airgun and such.

Thanks Bill C!

They are expected to start shipping later this month. I think we will all know when they do; won't take much prodding.  ;)

FX had really done a great job bringing new products to market. I really like the Dreamliner group. I hope to shoot some soon

I was on the Utah Airguns site last week and had put a Classic Dreamline in my cart just to see what shipping would cost.  I left it there and that evening I received a call from them saying they had some of the Classics in stock, but only the laminate and walnut stocks.  The one I had in my cart with synthetic.  I was out to dinner with friends, so I was unable to take the call, but followed up with an e-mail the next day asking about availability of the barrel kits for them.  I have not heard back, so they must be really busy, or forgot about me...

I am interested in learning more about the swappable barrel kits.  I think it would be great to have both .25 and .22 and be able to swap between the two...

 I want to swap barrels also.  At first just in same cal. with the X barrel and slug liners when out.  I hope someone will do some shooting and tell what the different FPS & FPE with the cal. dial.  For instance you have a 22 cal and what happens when you shoot it on the 25 cal or 30 cal setting.

I don't know about the Dreamline, but I have read reviews of the Crown where it was shooting the same speed with the .22 and .25 barrels.  If I remember correctly, both were shooting at around 925 fps, but I don't recall which pellets were being used.

  That would be great.  I thought I heard or read that the ports were smaller on the dreamline but not real sure. On AAC review he was shooting 18 gr JSB at around 870 fps. Not sure what all adjustments he had done to it!

I did some price comparisons on the Black Pepper Laminate Classic Dreamline.  It appears to be available at Utah Airguns, PA/AGD, and KRALE.  KRALE does not offer theDonnyFL Moderator Option, but I added the $99.99 for a TANTO, which it appears is what is being included at PA/AGD and offered for $79.99 at Utah Airguns.  All these prices are shipped to the FL Panhandle:

Utah Airguns:  $1,362.98

PyramydAir:  $1,329.99

KRALE:  $1,116.45 + LDC ( $99.00) = $1,215.45

At this point, it appears Utah Airguns is the only folks who are actually receiving and shipping these air rifles.

Precision Airguns and Supplies has .22 cal Walnut & Grey Laminates in stock. Krale wouldn't ship FX products to US when AoA had them, they may now, not sure.

They will be out next month and i like everything I see!!!

Anyone purchased from KRALE?  Seems odd that they can offer these for less (plus less cost for shipping) than any of the US vendors. 

Ordering a base synthetic stock Dreamline from the following vendors:

Utah Airguns:  $1,032.99

PA/AGD:  $1,079.99

KRALE:     $879.14

The orders from Utah Airguns and KRALE do not include the DonnyFL Moderator option or any other options, just the air rifle, shipping and in the case of KRALE a credit card fee.  I read that PA/AGD is providing the DonnyFL moderator as included on the Dreamline, but I also read they are permanently attached at the factory.  I'm not so sure I'd want it permanently attached in the event I want to remove it or use a different, larger moderator. 

It seems the savings going through KRALE is pretty substantial.  Just curious if I'm missing something, like having to pay customs or something when it arrives.  Can anyone help enlighten me as to how this works when purchasing from KRALE?  Thanks...

Krale seems to be a very viable option their customer service by all accounts is excellent and most members seem to receive their rifles well packaged and usually in under 7 days. Full disclosure I have not purchased from them but enough other members have and I only remember 1 or 2 occasions where customs was an issue and the rifle was held up in limbo for some silly reason. I would not hesitate to buy from them if a rifle that I wanted was only available through them for whatever the reason.

I too would only buy from them "IF" the AG I wanted was not offered from one of our dealers. One of our members did just that. A HW 10 that was not avaliable with the carbine option here.




The reason being, I want dealer warranty  support. If I have an issue, which is always possible with a new gun, especially a new platform, I want to be able to pick up the phone and talk to someone knowledgeable on the platform, NOW. LOL


That, and I support our dealers.

I had and Dream Pup on order from Utah Airguns.  After finding out that the Dream lite and classic would be coming out first and he was not sure when they would get the Dream pup in,  I desided to get the Impact X instead.  I also was able to get a slug barrel for it.  After added up the cost to get the dream line I wanted (Dream pup with 600mm .22 slug barrel) buying a case and waiting. I desided that I was too close to the cost of an impact to not get the impact.   Came in the mail yesterday.
