    “T3PRanch”To speak to what I have seen over several years with FX is this: The USA would seem to be their biggest market and business serves their biggest market “first”. When it is “satisfied” they move to secondary markets. FX is more innovative with their product offerings and increasingly gets them to market quicker and quicker after initially revealing the product at Shot or IWA. They are a learning and adaptive company both in design and manufacturing. Ramping up to the demand that they have experienced in the last 2 or 3 years is a difficult path for any manufacturer but FX seems to be getting more and more right with fewer “bumps in the road” than in past years.
    The bottom line is that their products are coming to dealers in their major market/s quicker and with fewer issues each passing year.
    Just my 2 zinc cents!

No doubt, they have advanced a lot and are improving.   Hoping to find a balance as a manufacturer (able to meet demand) vs. an innovator (of new products/technologies).

    This is certainly a very interesting concept, and should be a fine rifle. The option of switching from a conventional format to a bullpup appeals to me, and should be more financially doable than two separate rifles. This rifle may become the 10/22of airguns.

    Boy I hope this isn’t a couple years out. I’m just about ready for a streamline or wildcat mk2. I can wait a few months but not a few years. Patience is not one of my virtues

    I am purely interested in WFTF open class.  Top notch European open class FT rifles start at $2,500 and quickly go north.  I have my eye on the AA FTP950.  The pictures in the videos for the FT Dreamline shows me a top notch FT stock.  So if the Dreamline starts at $1K and the FT stock is less than $1K then I assume the Dreamline FT version will be at a price point below $2K?  If so, then I will patiently wait the 2 years that it will probably take for the FT Dreamline to be available.  If not, I will jump on the AA FTP 950.

    On another note.  It is a pity that we don’t have a world class FT rifle made in America that is at a price point below the Europeans.  The only World class rifle we have in America is a semi custom production model from Thomas that starts at $4K (and Thomas markets this as a bargain????????)  

    Understandably, the WFTF market is a small one.  If someone could sell a world class FT stock for a Crosman Marauder (since a Marauder can easily be tuned for world class FT accuracy with a LW barrel) then we would have something!! 

    But once again, the Europeans are clearly superior manufacturing world class FT rifles at a price point well below the American suppliers.

     The Impact still looks way better and is a bull-pup configuration without the rear linkage required in other pups, by using a separate small regulated air reservoir behind the handle going back to the chamber. (more complex and costly)  The big carbon bottle is going to be lighter and provide more shots too.  I am wondering if the Dreamline magazine will hold 16 or more shots like the Impact does?  I might be interested in the bulpup design if they move the cocking lever forward like the Wildcat, but get more than the wildcat’s 8 shot mag…..could wind up being a cheaper version of the Wildcat with more shots.
