Developed over an unprecedented 7-year development program, the Wolverine is all-new and incorporates many new design and safety features, while retaining Daystate’s core principles:
"A superb hunting rifle, with power accuracy and performance good enough to take target shooting."
The Wolverine is the end-product of a team of British and Italian designers and engineers who have combined 30 years of airgun and 60 years of shotgun technologies to create a new generation of Airguns that will ensure Daystate’s position as Manufacturer of the finest Airguns in the world.
The Wolverine core design is to be used in several new models. At present we have the following models available with more being released in the future.
Daystate develop the big bore sporting rifle in response to great demand from airgun hunters world wide.
Enter the 0.303 calibre Wolverine
In addition to packing a 303 calibre punch the multishot wolverine is also unique in featuring gun handling and safety’s that will be more familiar to firearm shooters such as a bolt open safety a resettable safety catch plus a pressure system that prevents the rifle chambering more than one bullet at a time.
Why a Daystate big bore air rifle ?
Airgun hunters have for a long time, enjoyed the benefits of using an air rifle to take small game, and for pest control.
Airguns are unique, with low cost of ammunition, the potential for lower power outputs than firearms making them safer within buildings and hazardous locations, and less environmental impact (noise).
Until now, airgun hunters wishing to hunt for medium sized game have had to change to full bore rifles or shotguns.
With the introduction of the Wolverine 303 there is now an airgun alternative !
Featuring a new specially designed .303 airgun bullet, the Wolverine 303 with its 5 shot rotary magazine and muzzle energy of up to 120 ft lbs is more than capable of taking larger game species at sensible airgun ranges.
The Wolverine "B" Type encompasses all the new design features of the "303" but in the more usual airgun calibres of 0.177 and 0.22. It also utilises the 400cc or 500cc bottle type air reservoir giving high shot capacity when set at 12 ft/lbs muzzle energy (up to 350 shots in 0.22 with 500cc bottle)
The "C" Type is the 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) variants.
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. The rifle is pictured with 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.
