Daystate's fabulous Wolverine 303 big bore sporting rifle gets a carbon fibre air bottle !
Its (nearly) spring again! At least that’s what it felt like at the British Shooting Show at Stoneleigh, near Coventry, England at the weekend.
The show now in its 6th year was so oversubscribed in 2013 that for the first time the show was extended to a full three days during which time there were over 30,000 visitors. The Daystate stand was crowded for the whole period with shooters keen to take a look at the three Wolverine versions as well as the Huntsman Regal.
Pictures taken before things went too mad each day.

Launched at the British Shooting Show, Daystate are pleased to announce the long-anticipated 12 foot pounds cylinder version of the Daystate Wolverine. Available in .177 and .22 calibres and can also be produced in a 30 foot pound (42 Joule) variant.
Distinctive on the new version is the fore-end piece, made from high performance PA66 (ballistic) polyester. The fore-end also incorporates a 23mm picatinny rail for accessories such as an optional tactical bipod and sling swivel - which are also available from Daystate.
The Wolverine C type features a (200cc) aluminium air tube which is a shortened version of the 300cc tube used on the Wolverine 303. The longer 303 length tube can also be specified as an optional extra if a higher shot count is preferred.
The new Wolverine will join its other Wolverine stable mates, the 303, High Power and the B (bottle) type.
The Wolverine C Type in shop date is April 2014.

A superb hunting rifle, with power accuracy and performance good enough to take target shooting.
Main features include:
Airgun enthusiasts came from all regions of Russia to view and handle the Daystate range along with Breda and Marocchi Shotguns.
Stefano from Daystate stated the show to be a great success with a lot of interest shown in all the groups' products, and in particular the Daystate Wolverine 303.
Combining classic British design with modern machining and engineering techniques is a common theme at both Daystate and Boxall & Edmiston, so when Daystate wanted to make a Limited Edition rifle with the classic good looks of the finest bespoke English guns, it needed to look no further than the top British shotgun maker.
Boxall & Edmiston is a shotgun company with traditional, uncompromising production values that also takes full advantage of new machining and laser engraving technologies. Innovation and keen pricing are parts of the equation, too Boxall & Edmiston are still able to price their beautiful, highly desirable pieces around the £20,000 mark.
Daystate has been using the expertise of co-director Peter Boxall for many years. Peter’s past experiences at Jaguar cars and as the Technical Director of Holland & Holland gives him the credentials of knowing more than a little about gun design and has an acknowledged talent for combining good design with quality engineering.
More than a year in planning, the Turkish walnut used in the new Daystate’s stock has been carefully selected and put aside by Italian stock partners, Minelli. The beautiful, laser-etched scrollwork on the breech, - designed and implemented at Boxall & Edmiston - takes half a day per block to complete. Even the serial number disc inlay on the dust-cap is hand tooled and made from Sterling silver.
This B&E limited edition PCP is based on Daystates latest Huntsman Regal the new highly popular PCP which offers a state-of-the-art lightweight rifle fitted with Daystate’s latest Titanium valve system, enhanced shot count and classic hunting rifle lines.

Options & Prices
Daystate have been supplying pellets for many years now and have amassed a lot of experience in the difference between a good pellet and a great pellet, we believes the Rangemaster Sovereign pellet (made by JSB), is a great pellet. For many years JSB has been the No. 1 choice for FT and HFT shooters who demand the best accuracy and consistency.
A slightly different approach has been taken with this pellet to many other companies who buy JSB pellets, for a start Daystate supplied JSB with special test rigs that can be fitted with our latest Lothar Walther barrels. Then Daystate let the pellet experts do their job, to select a pellet that is optimised for Walther barrels without the shooter having to worry about selecting from a range of pellet heads sizes, something that causes confusion and in most cases not something the shooter is willing to do. So we have concentrated on supplying a general airgun pellet, but made to indoor match quality.
Picture shows Tony handing it over to Lloyd. The main batch of Regals are due into BAR at the end of the month.
The Huntsman Regal – a new mix of traditional design and the very latest technology.
In its first major redesign since its introduction in 2008, the Huntsman Regal introduces many new features;
The Huntsman is a famous name for Daystate with the original Huntsman going back to the formation of the company 35 years ago.
The Huntsman Classic launched in 2008, has received many upgrades over the last 5 years. Now the Huntsman Regal takes this a stage further with a new air tube assembly - allowing use of the latest materials that save weight, aid serviceability and comply with forthcoming pressure cylinder testing requirements. The introduction of the Harper Micro valve on the classic back in 2008 improved shot count by 40%, now the Regal has a valve made in weight saving Titanium, improving efficiency even further.
Hunting rifles need to be quiet, the Regal retains a full-length reflex moderator and is further fitted with an adaptor to take an additional silencer should one be needed. The package includes an on-board pressure gauge, 10 shot magazine and filling connector.

Robert Buchanan is the owner of Airguns of Arizona, who are the importers of Daystate for the USA and the Wolverine 303 was famously developed expressly for the USA. Robert played no little part in demanding a special high power airgun for the US market, so it is great to see Robert hunting with the rifle which he was instrumental in having developed.
Here he is with an 80 yard Jack rabbit – good shooting Robert!
