    I got it from PA. It is very light. It feels like a fishing rod to me for some reason. The stock is slender and feels good when I shoulder it. I mounted a hawke vantage 4-16×44 scope on Sportsmatch hi mounts. Eye-scope alignment is spot on. No straining whatsoever. It feels natural.  I was worried scope would be to high because of the mounts but no. Only issue is the turret/focus knob housing will not fit directly above the magazine. 

    I have it set at high power and it is very quiet with the small DonnyFL mod. The mod is fixed onto the shroud btw. I don’t know for sure, but I believe it is red loctited. If I want to remove it in the future, I will use my heat gun. I’ve removed mod on guns that were fastened in this manner before. However, it is perfect as is. It measures at a tad under 43 inches. 

    Fit and finish is perfect. If you have a DonnyFL mod, that will the finish to expect from the Dreamline. 

    I am waiting for a fitting to pump up the gun so I was only able to shoot it with the air it came with. I sighted it in at about 10 yards (indoors). Not a real accuracy test but at least I got a chance to shoot her. It’s stack 18 jsbs. Oh yeah, I got the .22 cal. 

    I am very satisfied. This is my first fx in about 2-3 years. I had an impact and was not happy with the consistency. I hope the simple design lends its self to a more consistent shooter. When I get my fitting, I will run it through the chrony and post data. 

    Here are some pics

    I filled her up and ran five shots through the chrony using jsb .22 18.1 pellets. As advertised, it’s shooting at 32 fps. And it is very quiet. Like no mechanical noise. It feels and sounds like I’m shooting a gun shooting at a much, much lower power. 

    The one negative is cosmetic. The walnut stock is coated in stain residue. Not much but enough to be obvious after wiping it down with an alcohol soaked rag. I would have liked the stock in its natural state so I can finish it with my favorite oil. Not a big deal but worth mentioning. I plan on removing the residue and oiling. Should come nice. 

    So far, I’m very satisfied. Good job fx!

    Thank you for the review. Nice rifle! Can't wait to hear future results and if anyone shoots a .25 cal, it would be great to hear about that!

    Hi,

    l use rag soaked in denatured alcohol. It cleans the stain that did not soak into the wood. The color is maintained and with a light sanding with extra fine sandpaper (1000 grit or above) it will be ready to accept a finish oil.  I use minwax tung oil finish. Now that I know it shoots, I’m going to start the stock today after work. I’ll post pics soon.

    One other important detail. I also mask off the checkering before sanding so I don’t accidentally knock off any of the sharp checkered edges.

    Beautiful gun!

    I was going to order the pepper but i already have two guns with lam stocks. If they offer lam stocks in the future, I might pick one up.

    Thanks guys!

    here is a pic I took with a couple coats of minwax tung oil. It has nice sheen and it’s smooth as silk.. not the greatest of walnut but it feels good when shouldered.

    Broozer,thankyou for your reply. That helps alot. Just might start that project when I get home from work in the morning. With the temps around 35- 45 degrees how long should I let it hang and dry after applying a coat ? Still on the chilly side and quite damp and very windy here in Ohio.The yard can only be described as a bogg it's so saturated. Pls keep the posts with pics coming,thx again.

    Hey,

    i just finished applying a second coat after letting the first overnight. I happy with the finish now. 

    It is about 70 degrees here and it will dry in 24 hours but I let it hang with no handling for two to three days.  

    The cool thing about minwax is that you apply it until the wood soaks it up and wipe off the what doesn’t. I then grab a soft rag and buff the stock. After that, it is  dry to the touch. The drying time is to allow the polymers to dry and lock the oil in the wood. If the oil dries before you get to wipe it off, just recoAt it. 

    Hope this helps you,

    Gabe

    I finished my stock. Compared to when I got it and now, the stock is much lighter. It is at its natural state. I think FX just dipped them in stain and didn’t bother to remove all the stain. IDk for sure of course. Anyways, I’m happy with what I did to mine. 

    Thanks for following this thread.
