    FX Airguns is pleased to introduce two very exciting items for the FX Dreamline series of air rifles:

    The FX Dreamline is considered a breakthrough achievement from FX. Offering a high-performance air rifle at a fraction of the cost compared to other high-end air rifles (all using the championship winning FX Smooth Twist X barrel). FX now adds the Dreamline Power Plenum and has blown all expectations out of the water! The Dreamline Power Plenum adds the necessary speed and power to make the worlds most adaptable airgun, even more versatile.

    The Dreamline Power Plenum adds 17cc of plenum space to the existing Dreamline plenum with outstanding results. Speed increases of up to 130 fps are now possible depending on the caliber and weight. For example a 500mm Dreamline in .22 caliber previously shot the 22 grain FX Hybrid Slugs at 780fps. With the Power Plenum installed the same Dreamline now achieves 910fps (and that's before any porting or other power mods). A .30 caliber Dreamline with the Power Plenum installed now shoots the 44gr JSBs pellets up to 910fps (previously only reaching 830fps). This massive increase in power makes it possible for the Dreamline to move heavier projectiles at their optimal speed and achieve even better accuracy.

    The Dreamline Power Plenum also reduces the amount of regulator pressure used to shoot standard pellets commonly used by airgunners. The lower regulator pressure allows for a more efficient rifle which increases the shot count of the rifle.

    The Dreamline Power Plenum is a simple screw on adapter that can be added to both the standard Dreamline and the Dreamline Bottle versions of rifles. The Power Plenum is perfectly simple in its design; any Dreamline owner can with ease upgrade their rifle in minutes without fear of damaging their rifle and without the need of technical knowledge. Simply de-gas the airgun, unscrew the air cylinder (and bottle adapter for bottle guns), screw on the Power Plenum, screw back on the air cylinder (or bottle adapter & bottle for bottle guns), and refill the rifle with air. It’s that simple.

    The Dreamline Power Plenum starts to ship to US based dealers the first week of February. For international FX customers, please check with your local FX dealer for estimated availability.

    The Dreamline continues to show why it’s the most versatile airgun on the market. Not only is it a gun with multiple configurations and models you can convert to, but now you can convert any Dreamline into an arrow shooting rifle in just minutes!

    The Dreamline Arrow Barrel is a free-floating barrel that allows the hollow carbon fiber arrows to slide over the barrel. The air propels the shaft from the front of the arrow when fired which allows unheard of accuracy at distances up to 70+ yards. With the FX Dreamline you can achieve velocities up to 270 FPS and 50 ft lbs of kinetic energy. This allows hunters to safely hunt up to deer sized game humanely. Though the FX arrows are accurate up to 70 yards, it is recommended to hunt at ranges up to 50 yards to ensure ethical hunting and retained kinetic energy.

    Shot count varies depending on the model of Dreamline, but closely follows the shot count obtained by the .30 caliber Dreamline. Due to the adjustable nature of all FX Dreamline rifles, the power can be lowered to cater to the specific hunting situation or for target practice. All without sacrificing any of the phenomenal accuracy you will achieve.

    The FX Arrow Barrel Kit comes with four full length arrows. These arrows come with premium field tip points, but broadheads can be attached. Additional FX Arrows are sold separately. It should be noted that arrow barrel kits are also available for the FX Crown and are nearly identical (with the only difference being the firing probe for each rifle).

    With the FX Dreamline Arrow Barrel Kit, the FX Dreamline can become a multi-purpose rifle at a fraction of the cost of owning a dedicated arrow hunting PCP air rifle. The Dreamline Arrow Kit is available immediately for dealers to order from FX USA and retails for just $199.99. The versatility and functionality of the FX Dreamline continues to expand!

    Thanks FX for another improvement for the Dreamline and your rifles performance. How much overall length does it add to the air cylinder. It looks like very little and would not interfere with the moderators on 500 mm barrels. Also the suggest price for the part. Thanks Bill

    If you add the Power Plenum to a .177 or .22 Dreamline Classic with the 500mm barrel, can you still attach the LDC to the barrel?

    Dreamline Power Plenum in the US retails for $30.

    Current shroud on the Dreamline Compacts will not work with a DL Power Plenum, but an updated shroud is in production (and available soon as a part from FXUSA for those wanting to update)

    All but the early first Dreamline 500mm barrels will allow a moderator to be added even with the DL Power Plenum installed. Some of the first Dreamline 500mm had a larger air cylinder, but a majority have the space. The Dreamline Power Plenum adds just over 1" of length.

    Hope this helps clarify!

    How is that supposed to fit the impact?  Looks like it might fit the Crown and Boss but the impact would have the reloading block running over the arrow fletches.  Also the nub that butts up against the action on dreamline wouldn't fit inside the reloading block on impact.  Thats what I see from looking at it anyways.

    There is no need for fletching with this type of arrow barrel pushing air inside the arrow.

    I would shoot arrows without fletching as i do with my crossbow and with same accuracy.

    I index my crossbow arrows in way there is no bending from the crossbow string.

    So that is why I am asking this question.

    Sam Wood did a video of the Impact arrow barrel. The arrow goes inside a tube. I don't know any more than that.

    Do you have the link for this video ?

    Looking at this power planum and its design gives you the opportunity to stack them. Would this give you any added benefit if you stack to of them and add 2×17 CC?

    Maybe this is a stupid question… and is there an optimal size of the power planum per caliber?

     

    Edit: i found on GTA that there is a calculation and that the relationship between FPE & Regulator pressure and the volume. So that raises the question for what caliber and FPE this 17CC is optimised.

    @fx-usa how do you know if you have an early dreamline model? Is there a specific cut off like past a certain serial number? I got my .22 dl classic from PA in early april, would I be able to put on the power plenum and use a moderator? If not, what would have to be done in order to be able to use a moderator?

    FX/Jonathan another question if you would. What would be the approximate regulator pressure that FX used in .22 caliber to get the 22 grain Hybrid slugs going at 900 fps. Also the hammer spacing and setting. Since a lot of people will be getting the power plenum having a ball park idea of the settings would be helpful. My plan would be to use slugs in the 17.5 to 23 grain range and pellets 16 to 21 grains. Thanks Bill

    These (FX) air- arrows not really for target shooting but more for enthusiast hunters.

    For target shooting (where multiple arrows shot in a single target) all arrows need a rear collet or anything like a ring to protect the shaft rear wall from splitting or robin-hooding, otherwise these will be a single use only target arrows. Also cannot shoot them from a arrow barel ( "the arrow goes inside a tube") because still need fletching and more precise for higher velocities and longer distances. The rear collet also the fletching is playing big mathemathics with a flying arrow, these features are not only for cosmetics. Somebody sad earlier shooting arrows without fletching from a crossbow…it is not like that…yes maybe 20-30 meters far and not much POI accuracy no matter how you twist the string you may get it by coincidence only. 

    I don't really see a high usage other then for hunting maybe where shooting a single arrow into a single target.

     

    Edit:

    I would try that arrow tube for my own sport, but I know archery well and I know what these arrows need redesigning. Who never been exposed better read first about arrows preparation.

    The bow and crossbow champions always fine tune their arrows bare shaft.

    Fletching is there for arrow flight correction and nothing else.

    I can garantie you that my crossbow arrows without fletching are as accurate as the same arrows set with fletchings up to 100 yards.

    The most important with any arrows is not the fletching anymore. 

    The FOC and the arrow indexations are the key for the top best POI you can get with an arrow shot from a crossbow , a bow or an air rifle.

    Send me a arrow barrel for my Impact , not the one you have test with some guys but the same design that you use with arrow set over a tube,,,not inside the tube.

    I am willing to produce a video showing you how to index an arrow and hit the same POI and any distance from 10 up to 100 yards without any fletchiing.

    Also when I look at the arrow fletching you provide for FX airgun arrows ,,,the fletching are way too long and big for nothing. Why dont you use much more low and tiny fletching for more precision and better balance FOC. 

    If you want to learn more private me.
