    I think that's the smallest Impact I ever saw 

    15 inch barrel and Ronnin silencer

    Very quiet – I mean quiet for any airgun but for .30 it is absolutely amazing

    Not as powerful as Vulcan 2 but has way better shot count 

    A bit awkward shot count display 

    All electronic platform Daystate airguns have 10-shot magazine (.177 .22 .25) after last shot, gun vibrates and blinks red light to let you know your magazine is empty

    Pulsar .30 has 5 shot magazine, Daystate was too lazy to re-program and it still has 10-shot count gauge on the display

    It means after first 5 shots nothing happens – it still shows 5 shot left (I'm so used to that feature – it will vibrate after last shot) That was an unpleasant surprise from Daystate

    Other than that accurate and smooth, as expected from Daystate

    We are talking to guy in Russia to see how fast he would be able to make those dies and how much it would cost if we will ask to make our orders priority

    I just need to know how many people would be interested in that?

    I got chronograph from Russia, it took a bit more than two weeks from middle of Russia to East Coast 

    Dies should be not a problem to ship, I would guess it can easily be labeled as "bicycle parts" or something like that

    vadimas didn't make those dies by himself

    he ordered those from Russia.

    Guy in Russia is making those dies, but usually waiting time is a few months

    he is making very good quality dies but he is really busy

    if you need more info you can ask here, I speak Lithuanian and can ask Vadimas directly 

    he did a lot of tuning on his Impact, I saw few of his videos shooting crows from 150-200m with those .22 slugs, very impressive

    Only one good squirrel – is a dead squirrel 

    I live in deep suburbs and they cause enormous damage – chew wires, damage fruit trees and etc. etc.

    For me hunting them down is personal

    Last October huge oak branch fell from the top of the tree and crashed 3 top of the line carbon fiber racing kayaks

    it's more than $13000 in damage 

    Only when branch fell, I realized squirrels had a nest, they chewed big cavity inside of that branch and finally, branch snapped exactly at that point

    At least in US all Dreamline models are shipped with standard 1/2 inch thread

    Most already with Donny FL silencers

    Not sure about NZ

    As you can see in a second picture shroud at the end has thread with cap, it covers standard 1/2 in. thread

    It’s not cheap at all. Especially if you looking at Compact model

    l was looking for conversion kit from Dream-Lite to Compact

    Stock mount + scope rail kit – 130$

    Hinge for foldable AR-style stock – 100$

    AR-style stock – 49$

    If you have Dream-Light with tube you’ll need a bottle adapter, another – 125$ 

    and carbon bottle 300$

    If you have compact with 380mm Crown barrel with larger diameter shroud like in Nutcracker picture standard 61mm carbon bottle doesn’t fit. You need to get Chinese smaller 220cc bottle or you have to get smaller diameter shroud like Dream-Pup has, but that comes only in 500mm .17 and .22 – 600mm in .25 and .30 cal

    However in some pararell universe it does exist- 380mm skinny shroud. For some reason so far I didn’t find who has that in stock and how to order that. I would like to get compact but with carbon bottle. You can get carbon bottle but it comes with long barrel or you can get short barrel but it comes with skinny aluminum tank

    Thats picture of unicorn Compact – with short 380mm barrel and skinny shroud, on that configuration you can use standard 61mm carbon tank

    Hercules Bully was the last straw after which I decided, I would never look at Hatsan or any other Turkish airgun or anything in that price range

    I was looking for something in .35 cal., Hatsan Bully looks good on paper – powerful, multishot with carbon tank…

    First of all, it's huge and heavy, it feels and looks like some Turkish factory decided to stop building tanks and switched to airguns, but only tools they had – sledgehammer, chisel and 50 ton press.

    Out of the box fill probe door was not opening completely and cutting fill probe o-ring with sharp edge

    lever which rotates magazine had sharp edge and was cutting a deep groove into magazine

    To say it was loud – it's an understatement, it was like a cannon…

    Fortunately, I had a chance to return that back

    I have no doubts you can disassemble that gun, file all sharp edges, polish internals, change springs – I have no time for that

    to pay gun-smith it would cost a few hundred $$, and suddenly it's not cheap anymore 

    It's already in Vulcan or FX Dreamline territory but any Vulcan or FX would blow Hatsan out of the water any day or night

    It's just my 2c

    I was trying to save some money and was buying "cheap" guns – ended up paying way more 

    It doesn't matter how much you'll spend tuning Hatsan – it will never be same as Daystate or FX

    If you, by any means have funds, go for somethig better than Hatsan or Umarex. I was trying to save and ended up wasting more money on Hatsan Evanix Hammerli than l would spend if I would buy higher end guns. Finally I bought couple of Daystate Pulsar, Brocock Bantam and never looked back. 

    I had Vulcan 2 in .30 – very powerful and accurate. You can get used one for around 1000-1200. Hard to beat quality/price on Vulcan. I love my Pulsar in .30 but it’s different price range

    The problem with raccoons they usually attack my garden around 2-4 am

    I can't sit and wait half of the night, one small cheap thing helped me to take a lot of them down:

    https://www.harborfreight.com/wireless-driveway-alert-system-93068.html

    Costs just $15, works from one set of batteries for at least a year

    Detects animals as small as a squirrel 

    Just place on the tree, where they usually come from and go home

    as soon as any of those bastards enter your territory you'll be alerted

    Wait a moment…

    What kind of tank is that???
    you have short 380mm barrel and carbon tank

    I'm looking at the Dreamline for almost 2 months, I never saw that configuration

    Is that 300cc carbon tank?

    Where did you get that Dreamline??

    "i see in youtub"

    Sorry to break your dreams, next time you should do a little bit more research or even ask here "what are the real-life numbers for such and such air-gun?"

    usually, you can get real feedback pretty fast.

    Please don't blindly trust advertisement video, it was not even review, it was short manufacturers video.

    As it was mentioned before, it's just 300cc tube, it's not even carbon 480cc tank

    you can't expect too much from that amount of air unless you crank down power to the minimum

    It hit like a hammer. It fell dead on a spot. Just few drops of blood. 25 gr Polymags are pretty good at that, no pass through

    I hope they would make semi-auto but is really unlikely. I doubt they would do that because of all limitations they have in England. Unless they do that for biggest marker – USA

    … The Dreamline and Crown magazines are interchangeable, but I don't think the barrel are and the probes definitely aren't interchangeable.  

    Crown barrel is the same as Dreamline, only limiting factor is shroud

    Crown is using bigger diameter shroud, it can be mounted on Dream-Tac with a skinny aluminum tank, but can't be mounted on Classic because of the shroud size, not because of the brass port, even Impact has the same brass port

    I have two Pulsars .25 and .30 HP

    Even .30 is surprisingly quiet without a silencer, with short 4-inch moderator – it's just pfff

    Yes, Vulcan 2 is cheaper but couple things I hated and traded my Vulcan 2 for Pulsar .30 HP

    Daystate magazines are head and shoulders above Vulcan – it's finicky to load, but the worst thing you never know how many shots you have left, you cant see pellets in any way, when magazine is in the gun, Pulsar – you always know exact shot count, your gun is loaded or not and you can't double feed, it's impossible, it cycles only once per shot, loading magazine it's just way easier than Vulcan.

    Another thing I hate – it's not quick-release, it has probe, I have 3 carbon tanks, other guns have QR, you always have to look for that misplaced probe, also it has a pressure gauge in front of the tube, it means if you want to check pressure – you need to look at the barrel, especially if it's loaded – I just didn't like that. Pulsar has display on the side 

    If you need to adjust power on Vulcan you need tools, Pulsar – it takes a few seconds, open menu and adjust power level.

    Also some very neat features, you made last shot in the magazine – it vibrates, no more pellets left, low pressure – it blinks red. It has build-in laser, love that, especially at night or when I need to find target fast.

    Only one thing I would change – cocking lever is in the back, Vulcan has in the middle right above the trigger, ohh BTW trigger – I would say Pulsar has the smoothest trigger I ever saw, you can adjust in any way you like and it's electronic. Also, it's not a light rifle with a scope and flashlight, you definitely feel that in your hands

    I have .25 for two years already, not a single problem, only one problem I have – I have to buy more and more pellets and go to diving shop to refill air more and more often
