Features and Specifications of the Huntsman Regal

The Huntsman Regal combines all the elements of a fine, traditional sporting air rifle in a lightweight, compact design that’s a joy to shoulder, whether you’re out in the hunting field or on the competition range.

Classic English styling complements beautifully-carved, Italian-crafted walnut woodwork which cradles a solidly engineered - yet remarkably lightweight - action. Despite its diminutive size, the Huntsman contains all the features airgun shooters have come to expect from a rifle that carries the famous Daystate logo.

Courtesy of its Harper patent slingshot hammer and titan valve system, the Huntsman is capable of performance levels which have never hitherto been achievable on a mechanically-driven PCP. This results in a much greater shot-count and even more efficient power delivery, with high- power versions of the Regal capable of a muzzle energies up to a 30 ft/lbs and Regal XL up to a staggering 40 ft/lbs.

Utilising some of the most advanced stock-making techniques available, the Huntsman incorporates a unique marriage of wood and metal, whereby its one-piece steel action is seated far lower than usual in the stock in order to mimic the handling and feel of a traditional hunting rifle.

Nothing has been left to chance on the Huntsman, from its fully-shrouded match-grade barrel to its solid breech block, which comes fitted with Daystate’s proven 10-shot rotary magazine. If you prefer not to auto-load, this can instantly be replaced with an optional single-shot tray that allows direct-to-barrel loading. The rifle has been fitted with a pressure gauge to clearly indicate the remaining air status, and re-charging is a quick and easy operation courtesy of the standard snap-fit filling system, neatly concealed behind a pull-off protective cover.

I have bought a Daystate Huntsman Regal, it is about twelve months old. Having owned other manufacturer's in the past, this was the rifle I always wanted. All I wanted to say is that I absolutely love it and the finish quality along with the accuracy is fantastic. Please pass on my congratulations and thanks to all concerned in the process from design to manufacture. Not sure if I will ever need to buy another rifle !

Best regards to you all, Stuart

I bought my first "Huntsman" back in 1986, and have enjoyed using it. The outlet that I have just bought my new Huntsman Regal (0.177) through (Glasgow Fieldsports, two helpful guys named Brian and Tom) are also overseeing the service of my "old" Huntsman with yourselves. This newer rifle, like my older version is an absolute "beast" to hold, shoulder and fire. I know I will have as much enjoyment with both rifles. So just a simple "thanks" says it all from me.

Buying Experience:

George Bates have been fantastic, extremely helpful and a pleasure to deal with, I had decided on the Daystate Huntsman Regal with XL air tube and silencer before entering the shop. I believe Dan was the name of the sales person who dealt with me and he was both knowledgeable and professional, and confirmed what I had heard about Daystate as a company, with an excellent reputation. I think he told me that he also owned a Daystate, so you can not get a better recommendation than that.

I recently bought my first Daystate rifle (.20 huntsman regal) and I wanted to say how pleased I am with it. I have rifles made by other UK manufacturers but the Regal is my favourite. I also wanted to thank you for the quick delivery of my free daystate rifle case it's a beauty. My final thanks go to Keens tackle and guns in Aberkenfig, Bridgend their help and advise was much appreciated in helping me decide on the .20 version. Later in the year I think i'll treat myself to a Wolverine C type!

Just wanted to say how happy I am with my new rifle. I’ve spent many an afternoon playing in the garden and stalking the local pigeon population. Whilst I weighed up various options prior to buying, the Huntsman’s aesthetics and slick bolt action took it for me…. if it feels comfortable in the hand and easy to use, you’re more likely to pick it up and use it! Again, thanks for the help and keep doing what you do! Steve

I now understand why people pay so much for air rifles. I've just purchased a Daystate Huntsman Regal and I wanted to say how impressed and amazed I am by the quality and the performance of this's the first time I've spent this kind of money on a rifle and I truly feel I've had true value for money. Never did I think I would be getting less than 1 inch groups at 40 yards. I look forward to being a long term customer. Many thanks, Jon Bailey.
