Things I liked: The weight or lack of it I should say. My other rifle is a Hatsan Hercules Bully (10+lbs.) and the FX Dreamline Classic feels like a feather in comparison. The accuracy. Amazing! My bully is regulated and tuned and shoots 1/4" 5 shot groups at 35yds., but the FX is shooting 1-hole at the same distance. I am shooting .22 JSB Hades Low noise. DonnyFL moderator does a great job. I have a DonnyFL on my bully too. Cudos to FX for partnering with DonnyFL on the Dreamline.

Things I would have changed: Get rid of the fill probe! Other lower level airgun manufacturers are providing much cheaper guns with male foster quick connects, c'mon FX listen to your customers. No one likes using a fill probe.

What others should know: Shoot a tin of pellets before passing judgment. My first 10 shots left me feeling like my rifle had skipped the factory QC step. I set an email to PA asking if I could return it for a proper tune. They encouraged me to shoot it more to allow the regulator to settle-in. I set it at low power and followed this advice and the gun started shooting consistently by the time I needed to refill. By the time I shot a full tin of lead I was used to the trigger and now both the gun and me are settled-in. If this is your first FX be careful with the factory trigger setting. At first I was not happy with the lightness of the second stage. I stuck with and now love it. It is silky smooth and second stage is light but consistent and breaks crisply.

Things I liked: Accuracy. The rifle is boring at 50 yards. Seriously, I got bored at 50. 75 and 100 yards for targets is now the norm.

Things I would have changed: The fill probe. Also, the fill probe. Did I mention the fill probe...

What others should know: I gave 5 stars for value for money even though you can purchase a Savage 6.5 creedmoor for less. But if you like air guns then spend it on the front end. You can easily spend the same making a Marauder this accurate.

    Things I liked: Love the rifle the most accurate air rifle I own best you can buy for the money. Just can't say enough about the accuracy!!! That feel of the stock feels good. And a outstanding trigger. The large magazine is a plus .

    Things I would have changed: Things I would change it would come with a rail for a bipod and a barrel band.

    What others should know: If you looking for a very good air rifle FX DREAMLINE is the way to go you want be disappointed !
