“scrane”Daystate’s brand promise and brand delivery have been diverging for quite a few years. Hopefully Ataman can bring them back on track.


Why do you say that? 

I had a huntsmen for a while and was impressed with the quality. I only sold it because I had too many air guns and it wasn’t getting any use. Some of the strings I’ve seen on this site for the Wolverine have been impressive too. I can’t fault the fit and finish of any of their current models (even though most are not my taste). 

How is their quality now worse than it used to be? 

The only thing I would say about Daystate guns is that I think they should put more effort into their 25 cal versions. It seems like most of their proprietary valve technology (which they advertise as a differentiator) is limited to their 22 and .177 guns while their 25 cal guns are a little under-powered and have limited shot-count. Given the huge increase in popularity of 25 cal guns here, I think they could do better but other than that, I think they look the part. 

I never look look at a Daystate next to another brand and wonder why it is more expensive. I have seen a few of their older models and I can only see an improvement with the latest generation.
