    Alpha Wolf is the second ‘future-proof’ PCP that Daystate has developed, and its launch places it alongside the highly acclaimed Delta Wolf in their current line-up of world-leading, user-programmable electronic air rifles.


    The British company’s investment into computerized airguns means its rolling development program can easily incorporate today’s latest performance improvements as well as tomorrow’s – and the Alpha Wolf takes things a step further by offering all this in a stylish, new sporter package. In short, the world’s most advanced air rifle is still the most advanced air rifle… and it’s now available in two formats!


    While still complementing its Delta Wolf bullpup sibling, Alpha Wolf’s individuality is immediately obvious courtesy of a beautifully sculpted, red laminate skeleton stock with extended forend and new-look Picatinny optic rail – still movable fore-and-aft to cater for any day and NV scope configuration – that is fitted with an anti-cant bubble.


    Elsewhere, the Alpha Wolf maintains the high-end features first seen on the Delta Wolf: on-board chronograph, quick-and-easy barrel changes, touch-screen programming and Windows platform synchronization courtesy of an optional plug-in ‘dongle’, electronic air regulation, double-magazine system, A.R.T barrel, adjustable cheek and butt pad, fully-adjustable trigger and blade, carbon-fiber bottle and multiple accessory rails. It has also been designed to accept a host third-party options and upgrades, such as those from Precision Rifle Systems.

    I doubt I will live long enough to justify the cost and I doubt I will live long enough for the price to become justifiable.

    Don't get me wrong, I love the innovations Daystate is bringing.

    However, for 99%+ of the people who shoot air guns, these are simply so far out of range in price that it is ridiculous. Yes, 99%+.

    Well, then again, maybe there ARE more Millionaires and Billionaires these days. (chuckle)

    Oh, and I am not picking on Daystate. FX and plenty of others have priced their guns out of range of the majority of airgun shooters.

      I thought you were complaining about a $2900 price...that is nothing new. But checked the price...and it's $3599!? Forget about it...

      That's a lot of $$$$. But not if you compare it to a fully loaded Impact with similar features.

      M3 $2200 + bottom rail $160 + adjustable top Rail $250 + adjustable cheek $60 + ambi cocking $125 + chronograph $200 = $2995 and if you want to fix that flimsy barrel add $400 for a barrel tensioner.

      I don't own an impact but my friend does. He spent long hours and hundreds of pellets tuning for 1 specific pellet. Once he got it he said he'll never change the pellet or weight again because it's such a PITA. So in that regard I think Daystate has them beat because the computer allows the user to repeatably change between pellet or slug and different weights.

      JMHO because I can't afford either of them!
       
      Many Delta wolf owners had issues with their 3400 air rifles. Maybe this 4000 alpha wolf will have these issues resolved. My thought is not to be the first group of owners in a new model...and see how it performs in the real world. But for 4000 it should perform flawless, just what you would expect for a air rifle of its claims and price...we will see.
       
      Well, in all fairness, the new Alpha Wolf is $3,600. The Delta Wolf is $3,400, and the initial batch over a year ago were $3,000. I had one of the first ones (.25 cal.) and it did have growing pains, but AoA/Daystate made it right by a redesign of the chrony circuit board holder/air stripper (was hard plastic, now aluminum) and updating (via flash BIOS) the Gun Control Unit (GCU), plus other minor upgrades. When my gun was at AoA, they also replaced the cocking arm bushings since I had beat the poop out of mine practicing last year for the Speed event at RMAC. The brass bushings were both split (but the cocking still functioned perfectly), and they were replaced with stainless steel.

      The .25 barrels have been very good right from the start (A.R.T. LW barrel) and my gun is good enough now that I have the confidence necessary to shoot it at RMAC next month. If I didn't think I could win with White Fang at 100Y BR, I wouldn't be shooting it and instead shoot my .22 Red Wolf HP (Bleu). Mechanically and electrically, the Alpha Wolf and Delta Wolf are identical. The Alpha has an upgraded scope rail and nice red laminate stock. That's it. Daystate will also be offering an upgrade kit to transform your Delta Wolf into an Alpha Wolf, and its half price for those that already own a Delta Wolf. FYI, I'm going to keep my Delta just like it is, I like the Ergo vertical grip too much to change.

      FYI for those interested, I bought a custom adaptor for my .25 Delta Wolf that allowed use of a 600mm FX STX barrel system. I used a 15mm OD, 14mm ID brass tube for shimming to proper diameter to fit snugly in breech of DW. I've tried the Superior, Superior Heavy, and Slug A liners at commonly accepted speeds with .25 Heavy pellets. None of the STX liners were more accurate than the stock LW A.R.T barrel that comes with the Delta Wolf, plus I had to forego use of the chrono to use them. Additionally, the STX liner system was significantly more "floppy" than the solid LW barrel and needed more testing to get harmonics just right. 
       
      What daystate failed to tell all of us mugs that bought the DeltaWolf in the uk under the 12lb law was 90% of the software is disabled and what’s really annoying is that if you buy a barrel kit in a different caliber the guns on board system does not know and you the shooter can not do bugger all about it. What’s worse is when you change calibers back it scrambles the electric brain I massively regret buying one.

        The first few iterations of the Delta did indeed have unforeseen issues. Software and Hardware have been in a constant state of upgrading and improving. The Latest versions of the rifle are vastly improved and solid. I cannot speak for the UK market as the 12 ft lb law does not apply to our market however I know that has also been addressed. The Delta and Alpha rifles USA imported are something to behold in the Industry. Nothing comes close to the flexibility and technology. The most exciting for me is that all rifles can be updated and upgraded to the latest specifications. No one gets hurt.
