I did just saw this debut too! Really promising rifle! 50+ shot with Singel fill and I not sure I hear this right or not, but he said this is 50 ft.lb gun in 22 :shock: That is a lot of energy from a 22. If using regular 14.6 pellet, it need travel over 1200 ft/sec! That was some :twisted: . If the price is right, I definitely save up my money for it 8)

50fpe in .22" is most likely coming from a JSB Monster, weighing 25.39gr and travelling at just over 940fps. That's a pretty ideal velocity for avoiding transonic instability while keeping trajectory fairly flat at hunting ranges. No one seriously interested in hitting targets consistently would use a lighter pellet at 1200fps, it just wouldn't work at the distances these guys were shooting pigeons.

Looks like a fairly slick rifle. Good to see FX not resting in their efforts to develop a full line of air rifles.

That makes more sense with JAS Monster! Completely forgot have such pellet. For sure when light pellet travel that fast, it will not able to stabilize.

I've decided the streamline will be my first pcp rifle. Has everything I want in an pcp. Anyone have any idea when the streamline will be offered in Canada? I guess I could ask airsource.

Just got a message back from Airgun Source today because I inquired about the same gun and they are saying it should be scheduled to arrive in a few weeks

Finally there are more information on the gun. Both FX and AOA website has it

http://www.fxairguns.com/rifle/the-streamline/

https://www.airgunsofarizona.com/FXStre ... eSynthetic

Look like it will not reach 50 ft/lbs in 22 but in 25 is close to it.
It also have optional laminate stock, it sure looks gorgeous IMO.
The weight on the synthetic stock is very light 5.8 lbs !!
cannot wait until i get my hands on it !!

This is a shrouded rifle is it? Will it be allowed in Canada say directly from the US or will the Canadian model be modified?

Thanks for the comments.

Heck, my 1077 has a barrel shroud and is sold at CT.
