First Look At The FX DreamLite Air Rifle
The new FX DreamLite air rifle has arrived at the HAM offices. We were excited to see a production model of this latest airgun from the Swedish company – and we’re sure you will be, too!
The first thing you notice about the FX Dreamlite is that it’s LIGHT! Just about 6 Lbs without magazine, scope or accessories.
The next thing you notice is that the rotary magazine sits really high above the top of the breech. This leads to a hunt for high scope rings. Obviously the requirement is to achieve clearance between the bottom of the scope and the top of the magazine.
Having installed the scope, we can then admire the new air rifle.
The FX Dreamline looks long, simple and skinny in the Dreamlite configuration. Exactly what the manufacturer intended!
Indeed, if you compare the FX Dreamlite to the Impact, the older gun looks really quite tubby.
Highlights of the new FX Dreamlite include the adjustable hammer spring adjuster…
… together with the selectable transfer port to accompany the change of calibers many owners will want to make.
Of course, there’s also the highly-adjustable FX match-grade trigger!
The regulator pressure is indicated by the pressure gauge on the side of the receiver (we saw it above). Fill pressure is shown by the gauge in the front of the air tube of the FX Dreamlite. There’s a screw thread at the front of the shroud, with a small cover ring. When unscrewed, this allows a moderator to be fitted.
FX is offering a special moderator manufactured by DONNYFL as a dealer option on the Dream-Lite, Dream-Pup and Dream-Classic models.
Of course, customization is a key benefit of the entire FX Dreamline range. So, first, we added a UTG rubber armored bipod to the picatinny rail ahead of the trigger guard.
Then, with the assistance of a 5 mm Allen (hex) wrench, we popped off the Houge pistol grip from the FX Dreamlite. It was replaced it with a flat dark earth UTG Pro AR15 grip. Just for a personal touch and because we could!
That knob on top of the gun above the hammer spring adjuster looks very much like the locking device for the slender buttstock. There’s another thing to explore in future. But first we need to start shooting the Dreamlite for its comprehensive HAM test report.
