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 Daystate Wolverine 2 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 100 ft lbs is more than capable of taking larger game species at sensible airgun ranges.
If you select ‘Zeroed & Accuracy Tested’ your gun & scope combination (or gun only if it has ‘open’ sights with no scope specified) will be set up with the correct eye relief, zeroed at 30yds on our air rifle range with various pellets and then supplied with a ‘Test Fire & Accuracy’ certificate which you will find in the box.
This means when you open the box the gun is ready to go with no zeroing hassle – it’s a no-cost option that will save you time and get you shooting sooner.
Almost every part of the Daystate Wolverine 303 rifle has seen some small and subtle improvements over what has already proven to be a successful and reliable design. A new core valve assembly taken from the Pulsar and Renegade, which improves airflow for a much larger shot count as well as making the rifle easier to service. Changes to the breech block design gives a more family look - quite like the design used on the highly popular Daystate Pulsar. A completely new stock from stock maestro Gary Canes’ Techwood Design studio, surely the most famous airgun stock designer in the world - being the chief architect here, with some further input from the chief designer of Minelli. While they were about it the 3D butt pad used on the Pulsar was incorporated to add a new level of adjustability.
The latest Daystate Wolverine 2 Hilite is slightly shorter than the original version and the centre of gravity moved rearwards for a better balance. Here, Daystate are making an already good design better as well as easier to shoot. Improvements incorporated into the latest batches of the match-grade German Walther barrel are included in the new rifle, with Daystates’ Tony Belas joking that barrel costs of their high end rifles are getting close to the total manufacturing cost of some of the more eastern airgun manufacturers. Accuracy on a Daystate rifle is always a given, but the Company are keen to build on this wherever possible.
In all a superb upgrade to a gun that was already a delight to shoot.
