    Thanks for the replies. Nothing in the Hawke manual about this (good suggestion, shoot44) but the Hawke website says that the reticles are good at 10x even on the pages specific to the 2-7x scopes. Strelok specifies 10x for the Hawke mil dot but not the SWFA. Couldn't find a manual for the SWFA. I'm guessing that the SWFA's are sized for the specific fixed power like you say, Raden1942. And, the Hawkes are scaled for 10x even though they only go up to 7x. And, it's really not that big a deal. You can get your dope either way and you can always go to 5x for true double mil dot. Might even be a plus for the Hawke since the wire thickness would be a little thin at 7x and under. I have a couple 2-7xHawkes on powder burners – sweet scopes but they are the duplex reticles so I can't test it and my 3-9x is just to close to 10x for me to test that. So, I'll let you guys know if I get one what the deal is.

    Ted is one cool dude. And, I bet he's single-handedly sold more high-end air rifles (of all brands) than anyone else in history – simply by showing us how FUN they are. He built this forum so we can talk airguns. He's funny, personable, smart and can shoot like nobody's business. Ted made airguns cool again. I don't think you can really overestimate his influence on this hobby/industry. And, he's cool (did I mention that?) in his hoodie w/ white terminator shades – who doesn't like Ted? Yeah, there were guys shooting nice guns but NOTHING like this. I remember when he was the only guy out there making videos like that – making crazy shots with the Edgun in slo mo with a scope cam, holding over six dots, three into the wind. It was really mind blowing to stumble on to his website back then. There was no Extreme Benchrest, no plethora of airgun hunting videos, no amazing selection of readily available high end pcp's – just this crazy kid with a really cool air rifle doing amazing things with it. There was nothing else like it. There still isn't which is probably why half a million people subscribe to his channel (that's the entire population of a major US city). I wonder if the NSA could run some kind of analysis and figure out just exactly how many smiles over the past 10 years on this planet are directly linked to Ted? Quite a few of mine are.

    guys someone explain me. ted said that dream pup and dream lite have hammer spring control knob. what about dream classic? cant we control hammer spring tension?

    I think you have to remove the stock on the classic to adjust and may need a tool.

    Ted can't catch a break! Darn that shoulder looks painful. Ted, take it easy buddy, definitely stay off that twitterface. I love the fact that you dig the Dreamlite cuz I'm getting close to replacing my beloved disco/hawke/tko setup that you recommended for new guys on the old channel way back when and I leaning hard toward the Hockey Stick. Peace

    Sweet rifle! My buddy had one in grade school – I was jealous.

    I'd call Mac-1 and/or Baker air guns.

    Fantastic. I love Giles' reviews. I wonder if an in-shroud moderator is available?

    Cool, thanks Deke. Do you know about the .25 or can you point me where to find that out?

    I NEED a Dreamline Lite. I think of it as "The Hockey Stick" because in one of Chuck's posts a while back he referred to the Dreamline's "hokey stock configurations" but I read "hockey stick configuration" and it does look like a hockey stick. Eventually realized my mistake but I still think of it as The Hockey Stick. If Ted gets to name the compact Wildcat "The War Cat" then I think Chuck and I should be able to name the Dreamline Lite. Right?! Anyway, out after snowshoe bunnies on skis last weekend with the disco in a biathlon sling, I broke the TKO in half – time to get off my butt and buy the Dreamline. I might hesitate before taking it backcountry skiing for bunnies, but only for a second! Do we know what the Hockey Stick weighs yet?

    Sooo, just watched Matt Dubber's video on the Aeron stock for the Streamline then came across this:

    https://sureshot-airguns.co.uk/aeronfx-streamline-stx/

    Somebody is making Streamlines with STX changeable barrel liners.

    I hear you, Chuck – they're not making my gun yet either (But, the streamline is very close). Give them some credit, though. Most of your complaints can be answered by an impact. Get one of those double bottle .30's. If the skeletonized franken gun version of the dreamline gets it down closer to 5lbs in .25, I'll duct tape on some closed cell foam, get a clamp-on sling swivel for the tube and be in heaven. My disco's a couple years old and I'll bet there are darn few airguns that have seen as many miles or vertical feet on foot as that beautiful little gun. If she was a .25 and shot dimes instead of quarters at 50 and had an integral moderator but didn't gain an ounce (I couldn't care less about a bipod and, I rarely shoot more than three shots per outing.) We all want something a little different.

    Every time I think about the Disco I'm a little ashamed of looking at a streamline. The disco is just such a fantastic gun. And, we've been through so much together.

    Cheer up,my friend – maybe they'll build your gun next!

    I probably won't. But, boy oh boy do I want to! Guessing there won't be alot of bugs given the simple design. I don't remember reports of bugs with the Streamline from the first guys to get them. Maybe different with the bullpup chassis but, these are the "base models", maybe the one that looks like the Streamline? I bet that long skeletonized version is feathery! If they had hard numbers on weight and price, I'd be sorely tempted!

    Trust me when I tell you to forget about spending money on the X Barrel system…better you spend it on a good scope for the Streamline your dreaming of. 

    Chuck

    Trying to decide what's more important to me, less weight or more features/capability scope-wise. Thanks for sharing all your experiments with us, Chuck!

    I'm also waiting for the Dreamline, but we'll see how it goes.

    Should be an amazing rig.
