What we believe to be the finest and most powerful airguns in the world.
Daystate pioneered the modern precharged pneumatic airgun over 30 years ago and is still the market leader in design and innovation.
We hope you like what you see.
Production is well underway on the new Daystate Renegade, after a delay caused by a design change earlier in the year.
While 12 foot pounds rifles are being assembled, some further development has been possible on the export and FAC versions. Power has been dropped from 35 to 33 ft/lbs for production reasons, but consequently the rifle is sweeter to shoot and shot-count has improved to 60 shots in .22 and .25 calibre. A high power .177 version is being produced and will do 80 shots per charge, while the .177 and .22 calibre rifles in 12 foot pounds for the UK market, will produce 200 and 220 shots respectively.
The first rifle will be in UK gun shops before the end of June.

The Country Way Gun Shop in West Malling, just outside Maidstone in Kent is one of Daystates best stocked gun shops in the south of England.
The Countryway Gun Shop pride themselves in stocking everything and are firm believers of the principle ‘if you don’t have it you can’t sell it’.

The Countryway Gun Shop is just yards from the M20 and has ample free parking.
Apologies to everyone waiting for Renegade as first deliveries have been delayed until the first week of July.
Originally intended for the beginning of June, the Renegade project was delayed when a key component design change became necessary. This sort of thing can happen in any new rifle but unfortunately in this case it caused a 4 week delay and it has proven impossible to catch up.
We will keep you updated here and on social media as an further information becomes available.

A great success with over 20,000 people visiting over 2 days.
The event, intended to rival the Coventry based British Shooting Show earlier in the year is sure to now become a regular event for the shooting community.

Steve Youngs is a good shot and enjoys a challenge, so when he elected to take part in Hunter Field Target (HFT) he decided to use his trusty .22 Daystate Air Ranger. Now these competitions are hard enough, but at sub 12 foot pounds a .22 calibre has twice the drop of a .177 so it takes a brave and skilled hand to drive it.
Steve is such a shooter and came a credible 2nd place in this year’s World Hunter Field Target competition; only narrowly missing a first due to a technical issue.

It may share a resemblance to Daystate's beautifully styled Pulsar flagship precharged pneumatic. but the all-new Renegade is distinguishable by a secret hidden deep within its synthetic stock: its precharged action is mechanically-driven!
In place of an electronic GCU [Gun Control Unit] and map-compensated firing cycle, the heart of the Renegade beats around the mechanical Harper-patented Slngshot Hammer system. as fitted to its popular Wolverine and Regal siblings. The result is an all-new rifle that shares many of the features equipped on the revolutionary Pulsar, but without all the computerised complexity and expense.
Yet the Renegade is itself not devoid of ground-breaking features, not least it's Hybrid Trigger Unit [HTU). Historically, the bullpup design has delivered limitations with the trigger release due to the more forward location requiring inefficient levers that are detrimental to a good feel. With the electronic Pulsar, this problem was overcome. And Daystate has now extended its know-how to develop a hybrid electronic/mechanical trigger for the Renegade - the first system of its kind to be seen on a high-powered PCP air rifle, and marking an end to the age-old problem of a poor trigger let-off for mechanically-dnven bullpups.
Daystate Renegade - Launched at the British Shooting Show
Powered by a single, readily available PP3 type 9-volt battery, the HTU simply transfers the trigger's movement via a wire to a small solenoid which, instantaneously, releases the normally-functioning sears toward the rear of the Renegade's action. In essence, it's an electronic, fly-by-wire system that brings the best of both worlds to the bullpup configuration.
As the first shooting event of the year, the British shooting show is the eagerly awaited start to the air gunners shooting season with most – if not all gun companies exhibiting.
Daystate will be there, and launching its Big Secret – a new rifle for 2016.
Want to see it first? – then we will see you at the British Shooting Show 12-14 February at Stoneleigh Park Coventry.

Daystate were visited by Hard Air Magazine supremo Steven Archer earlier this year, here is his report on the visit.
Daystate displayed at the annual Tackle and Gun (trade) show this month, alongside its sister companies Brocock and MTC optics.
A big hit was the forthcoming Pulsar Synthetic (shown above). Look out for our new Pulsar – in the shops now!
This year the company had a superb new stand to show off some great new products, including the new synthetic stock version of the Pulsar.
Priced at £1599, the new version hits the shops later next month.
Daystate also displayed some new corporate clothing, watch this space for pics and more details.
Every Pulsar is tested after completion for at least an extra 200 shots, but the tester decided to stretch things, and produced this 300 shot group from a single charge!
Group was at 25 metres and used the new Rangemaster Keiser pellets.
This is Gareth Egarr, our newest member of the admin team at the Daystate owners club, seen here helping out at the Emmett & Stone open day.
Gareth became an instant admirer of the Pulsar!
Our man in South Africa, Wyan Schoonwinkel, has returned from the World Field Target Championships in beautiful Lithuania.
Wyan was shooting Pulsar No. 10 – one of the early build-up rifles. Wyan reports that the rifle was comfortable, consistent and very easy to shoot and he preferred it over his Grand Prix rifle. Grouping wise he was able to get 5 shots into a 5p circle at 50 metres. The Pulsar stock has been developed as a hunting rifle, so for FT Wyan added a knee support and butt hook and he will be developing these features on the rifle with Daystates help over the coming months.
If you are is SA keep a look out for Wyan and ask to have a go!
Over the past few months, Daystate has been hard at work quietly developing a new pellet in conjunction with the German pellet manufacturer H&N. H&N produce many of the world’s best pellets and have many world championship match wins to their credit. The new Pellet is based on the popular H&N Field Target Trophy, but the pellets have been specially selected to suit the Daystate special Walther barrels.
Branded under the Rangemaster label the new pellets are titled the Kaiser series and come in screw-top tins of 500.
Prices are as follows:
The Kaiser Series pellets are available in all good gun shops.

303 long range hot’s up!.
This time from a Wolverine 303 shooter in Italy. Giuseppe Scaglione shot an officially judged 18 mm group at a 100m on an open air range.
Great shooting Giuseppe!
Take a look at this 5-shot 110 yard group - courtesy of Ingrid van Gemert from the Netherlands!
Ingrid shoots in a 100 metre (110 yards) competition at her local club and last week shot a 12 mm group with her Wolverine 303. The score was 55 points, the highest ever achieved with a big bore rifle.
Stunning shooting Ingrid!
