First Time In The Shop

Who is the odd man out in this picture?  First time for us to get a Daystate Wolf in with a 400cc bottle.
Daystate's Air Wolfs have always balanced well with a 500cc bottle, but I've always wondered what  a Daystate Air Wolf would feel like with a 400cc instead of a 500cc bottle. Depending on stock density, which varies, the guns with the 400cc bottle are approximately 6 - 10 oz. lighter than their counter part with the 500cc bottles. Did not take guns out of stocks and no not have action only weight differences.  Was actually amazed to see such a difference in the stock density variation.  Having less weight extended out past your hand grip area, the guns do feel noticeably lighter.

These are 12 ft/lb guns and can't see ever having enough time to make a dedicated shot string, but I have heard 400- 500 rounds is achievable on a single fill.  Rifle at high power shoots @ 800 with 7.9 JSB, power level 2 (low power) shoots @ 780 with 7.9 JSB.  Looks like Daystate is looking to maintain just under 12 ft/lb and accommodate various pellet weight.  Factory shroud at 12 ft/lb is very effective in minimizing the rifles report.  Very Limited Availability - $1,869.00

Tactical Air Wolf's x Two

Set up a couple of Wolf's this week. Amazing how identical these guns can be.  Both guns were .22cal Tactical, the only real difference in these guns were that one had a left hand bolt.  They shot at 29.6 ft/lb with 18g JSB and right at 38 ft/lb with H&N Barracuda's.  Fired 30-40 shots with each gun to get it on paper and make sure they were grouping, no clipping issues ect.  I've heard of customers getting over 200 shots on the lower power setting and 100+ shots on the higher power setting.  

Both customers upgraded to Huggett Shroud System. The Huggett Shroud Systems makes the rifle very quite, and even more enjoyable to shoot.  It adds less than an inch in length and the smaller diameter under scope creates no clearance issues that larger shrouds can sometimes cause.   Huggett Shroud System is available for Daystate Rangers, Daystate MK4's and Daystate Huntsman. Huggett Shroud System is an optional $350.00 when purchased on rifle and $375.00 when purchased as an after market item.

Even with the gusty wind conditions both were doing a dime @ 50 yards

Daystate is really on a roll these days!

The First of the Theoben XP's have Arrived

Just a quick post as I'm on my way down to Tennessee for David Slades Shoot this weekend, but wanted to let you know the XP's look Beautiful!  These are the first guns produced with the Theoben USA logo on the receiver.  The style and feel of these hand rubbed oil finished stocks is very nice indeed. Currently, rifles that are arriving are committed to Pre-Orders, however once the Pre Orders have been fulfilled, we would be happy to help you  put one of these classic guns in your collection.
