Hello folks, just looking to get some honest opinions on what would be a good next pcp airgun to get, I got a disco last year in .22 and had so much fun, when I seen a .177 disco on here for sale I jumped on the chance to get it, but now I'm looking at getting something with a magazine and a higher shot count and preferably in .22 and would like a little input from some fellow shooters, some airguns I was looking towards are the air arms s510 or s410 TDR( because of portability), daystate huntsman regal xl, and the fx streamline, which is one I wanted as soon as I seen the first pics but was disappointed that they removed the shroud, also would it be a better choice to buy a fx Royale or bite the bullet and get a fx impact, any help will be appreciated.

Thanks,
Sheldon

Any of the high end PCP's would suffice.

You've got to decide
- which features are important to you
- what are you going to use it for
- what's your budget

I've lusted of the the 410TDR for a long time... but it's not regulated, and it bugs me that I'd need to keep track of the "range" of good shots... There's no quick/repeatable way to adjust the power.

The Streamline is a whole lot of bang for the $$.

If you're going to bite the bu$$et, have you looked at Steyr's?

They may re-introduce shrouded FX Streamlines in the near future, they were only removed in order to speed up deliveries to Canada. You can always call AirgunSource and ask Travis on what their latest plans are.

They also may be introducing a separate shroud that can be purchased. I'm thinking of just doing a custom carbon fiber tube for mine.

I've either personally shot or seen all of those rifles in action, and they're all very nice. I went with the Streamline and I have no regrets. For me, it's perfect. Repeatable adjustable power is important to me (medium power is perfect for HFT), and I really do love the idea of having a regulated airgun. The shot count is outstanding, and it is every bit as accurate as any air rifle that I've shot. The weight at 5.7 lbs is yet another big factor that I'm still getting used to.

You really can't go wrong with any of those. If you're trying to pick the best suited one, it all depends on what your needs are.

Thanks guys for the time to give a little input, I generally try to get as much info as possible when buying things like this because I don't have the opportunity to handle this gear where I live, I already messaged airgun source and the Streamlines are suppose to be back in stock in late July to early August, with the shroud and in laminate so I will probably just wait till I can get one of the them because of a flatter shot string, again thanks guys for the input.

Good news from AGS and a great choice for you. Ask them about pre-ordering so you're not disappointed.
