My review of the .25 FX Streamline
« on: September 26, 2018, 02:23:33 PM »
I received my FX Streamline a little more than a week ago and all I can say is 'wow, wow, wow!'' To say it is an improvement my Armada is understatement. Don't get me wrong, I like the Armada but there's no comparison with regards to accuracy and consistency. The Streamline is reg'd and the Armada is not for starters so right there it sets itself apart. The cocking lever is so easy and smooth you wonder if it's even working. The magazines fit perfect and tight and they're aluminum. I haven't run it through the chrony yet...been busy setting tile, deer hunting, and salmon fishing. I have however put it through the paces at extreme range. I've been a little lazy to check the group sizes down range, but I'm on steel from 50 to 175 yards. 50 yards is touching holes as it should be, and I'm hitting a 4x6 piece of steel on every shot at 150 and a 6x10 at 175. No excuse for not taking the walk to look at the groups other than I'm usually in my flip flops or pajamas. Just can't resist sending a few pellets down range.

I could hit 150 fairly consistently with the Armada but not 175. I'm really, really impressed with this gun. The light weight is amazing too. The Armada is just a twitch over 10 lbs. with the scope and it's a beast to shoot off hand. I don't know the exact weight of the Streamline & Hawke scope but it sure is comfortable. I would give it 9.5 out of 10. The only reason to not give it a ten is because it doesn't have sling studs which I think it should. Small potatoes.

I'm sure there are other guns that perform equally as well, but maybe not for the price. I would expect that performance from a $2000.00 gun, but being as how this one is $1000.00 I'm tickled pink with it.

I would also give a thumb's up to Utah Airguns. The customer service was great, they asked me the right questions, tuned my gun exactly the way I preferred, and made sure that I had everything I needed/wanted in one stop.

Well sir, you'll soon be shooting in the wind as well!

Speaking only for myself... I came close to buying an FX a few of years ago. I was a bit taken back by all of the trigger issues they were having at the time. But once I got the Cobra with its Timney Calvin Elite trigger, I was hooked.

I have an Omega compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your portable tank as a courtesy.

they are great little guns i just kinda wish i had bought mine in 177. Damn you US market that gobbles up all the Fx rifles.

That said, I shoot my streamline way more than my crown. The crown is serious business while the streamline gets a lot of "pyjama" shots like you said.
