FX Dreamline Stars Among Many New Airguns At 2018 IWA Show

As you arrive at the 2018 IWA OutdoorClassics Show in the drizzle, there’s at least no doubt from the signage that you’ve come to the right place! There’s so many new airguns to see that it’s tough to know where to start. But the new FX Dreamline is certainly one that will take many people’s fancy…

Even before the show opens, there’s a “new products” display that makes it clear things are changing fast in the airgun world. As part of this, Turkish manufacturer Kral Arms was showing the new Kral Re-Volt. Here we have an electrically-powered semi-auto air rifle available in .177, .22 cal and .25 caliber. Interesting!

More to come on Kral in the next few days…

Yesterday, HAM announced the new Brocock Commander HR, the newest model in the British company’s growing range of PCP air rifles. Today we saw it for the first time. Shane Kellar of Airguns of Arizona was really excited about this new gun and can’t wait to buy one himself!

The gun Shane’s holding has a practical Cerakote finish and carbon fiber tank. There’s a built-in Huma regulator and – for the  US market, at least, a practical folding stock, as Shane demonstrates below.

While at the Daystate booth, Robert Buchanan from Airguns of Arizona showed us the new walnut-stocked Daystate Red Wolf (below). We first saw this with the stunning red and black laminate stock at the SHOT Show. But the walnut version gives a completely different appearance and personality to the new design.

Or rather, it would be better to describe the FX Dreamline as a rifle system, father than just an air rifle. It’s a new modular airgun concept which is based on a receiver looking similar to that of the FX Impact. The big difference with the FX Dreamline in that the gun can be configured in a huge number of different ways…

There’s interchangeable calibers, stocks, SmoothTwist X barrels and even a bullpup configuration, all of which can be chosen by the customer. Fredrik told me that the FX Dreamline is designed for it to be easy for the owner to change the gun from one configuration to another.

The FX Dreamline can look the gun Fredrik’s holding above. Or it can look like this…

And there’s more choices for you, but the receiver stays the same, complete with the power adjustment features that you find on the Crown and Impact.
