    I’m considering a Daystate Airwolf MCT and would like some input from current and previous owners. 

    What did you like? 
    What did you not like?
    Would you buy it again? 
    Available upgrades and are they worth it?

    I’ve always thought of Daystate as having very high quality and consistency with the rifles they produce. Not to mention the beautiful stocks they all seem to have! 
    Every time I get close to owning one, something else comes along and I end up spending my money on it instead of buying a Daystate. Well, I’m close again and the MCT extreme has caught my eye.

    I have  an air wolf now the past 6 years…….trigger…sickly good its its that good
    can load the gun from right or left with ither mag or single shot tray.
    fast shot cycle.. seems like lighting. lock time is so fast.
    super high shot count. i can fire 500 pellets from mine on one charge at 15 foot pounds.
    stock is great for different positions. you will like it.
    ​got both high and low powers. u will love that too.
    the bolt is effortless. yes u will love that too.
    and of course the is screen is wonderful… whats not to like.
    mines in 177. im getting almost 20fp on high with heavy pellets
    12.5 on low with light pellets.
    ​I’m getting 10 shots groups the size of my little finger nail at 50 yards.

    I have an AirWolf MCT and it is my hands down favourite gun. 

    Mine is chambered in 25 and I am getting 85 shots on a fill.

    The bolt is effortless. 

    It is dead accurate even without any silencing aids, it is very quiet.  I can manage 0.5 inch 50 yard groups all day long with a good rest Setup. 

    There are no words to describe the electronic trigger. It is just superb. 

    Fit and finish are superb. Feel free to PM me your cell number and I’ll text you some pics. Daystate really knows good wood. :)

    I’d say go for it.

    I have the .22 stnd. One of my favorite guns to shoot. They stock just fits me right. The trigger is about the best you can get. What really made the gun shine was the Heliboard upgrade. You can just fine tune it with a push of a button. This should have been factory with the Air Wolf
    The only thing besides the high price of a new gun that suffers a bit is……. It still has a shot curve. It is not as pronounced as some of the other Daystates but it is still there. It does not bother me personally because I shoot tethered off the bench.

    Don’t you have a crown? Never had a wolf.. but my huntsman xl I had was a gem. Can only imagine what the wolf is like.. just needs a regulator if you ask me..

    I had to look up the “MCT Extreme” That appears to be the .25 version. I have the Tactical model. I really like the gun.
    As stated above the trigger, being basically a switch has little lock time.
    In .25 the “heliboard” board wont help you. I talked with the guy and he said he could get me to about 890-900 fps with a shot count of maybe 18
    But I understand the boys at AoA can make adjustments to.
    To Dirtes point?
    The curve comes from where the sweet spot is. Mine is at 215 bar or so.  I get 1.04 or shots per bar from there. 255 to 245 fps with 25 weighed ammo.
    Anything above that pressure is a waste of lead.
    Depending on the ambient? I get 50 to 65 shots before she falls of the cliff at 148-145. 
    I am going to school on this gun. It is my education into high end guns.
    Bottom line Tom? 
    Its built to shoot 25. grain ammo really well 
    There’s not much to tinker with.

    Hi Tom
    I had the Airwolf Extreme, It was a very nice gun and as for the things I liked about it, to many to list and pretty much everything that has been said…
    So, I’ll tell you what I did not like about the Airwolf Extreme
    first, it DID NOT Like any suppressor, with the suppressor on the groups opened up from 1/4 of an inch CTC at 50 yards to 3/4 of an inch.
    and I know a few people that had the same issue with there Extreme 
    the second thing was not that much of an issue but low power was less than 25 FPE.
    the third thing, even with the carbon fiber bottle the extra weight from the longer barrel made it front heavy compared to the standard Airwolf
    also the longer barrel made it a little more of a hassle to carry it through the woods and brush.
    as far as shot count, mine got a respectable 115 shots per fill @ 46 FPE 
    I did shoot it in the 2016 Extreme Benchrest shoot and came in 14th in the pro-class, so it is a nice gun and can perform very well
    I sold mine because it only had an extra 8 FPE over my standard .22 airwolf @ 38 FPE and I did not think it was worth the extra weight
    In my honest opinion I’d get the standard Airwolf in .22
    well, thats my 2 cents anyway

    I’ve had one for about a year, actually thought about selling because I wasn’t shooting it much. 
    Decided it’s just too nice to ever part with – it really is that good.

    Thanks for all the responses guys! It’s really helpful! :) 

    Instead of quoting you all one by one….
    @aa_limited Those are all the rumors I’ve heard about these. It’s good to hear that your experiencing them in the real world. 

    @NL_Law I appreciate the offer, shot count info, and pretty much backing up what aa had to say about it. Really good to hear. 

    @dirte Hey bud, thanks for chiming in! I’m curious about the heli board upgrade. Other than push button fine tuning, did you notice and other performance differences simply by upgrading the board?

    @deutschksk Yes, I do own a Crown. I agree. One of the components of my “Dream Daystate” build has a regulator as a critical component. Your experience with the Huntsman XL speaks to the build quality that the Daystate name carries. 

    @skip-in-wv Thank you. However, I no longer shoot 177. 

    @2d1c Thanks for sharing. You have a different perspective than others and it’s always good to get as many points of view as possible.

    @mark404 Great information! I’m a very picky person when it comes to my rifles. Nice shooting too. You and I would be a great 75/100 match. I came in 14th last year and 13th this year. 

    @delladog You’ve definitely got a looker there! Congrats! I think you would have kicked yourself if you had parted with it.

    So… Are there any common problems that come to mind with the Daystate line or this rifle in particular? 

    I’m a little surprised to see such a big difference in shot count from one shooter to the next. But, I can only imagine it’s how particular the shooter is as well as the distances they are shooting at. I’d probably be lined up with @2d1c for competitive shooting. 
    I count on all of my current rifles to give me 40 shots per fill. Some will give many more, some are basically maxed out at 40. But, they all give me 40, and I’m happy with that.

    It seems to me like you are all basically of the same opinion, “Buy it, you’ll like it.”

    I have had a 22 cal Airwolf for about a year.  I have swapped out the cpu board for one of Jack’s.  It has 12 power settings, you can tweak each with 20 different sub settings, plus you can change the capacitor voltage and then you can tweak each of the 12 settings by a factor of .95 to 1.05 in .01 increments.  That’s 2400 settings not counting the capacitor voltage change.  The display also shows remaining shots. Right now I am at 204 bar and have 220 shots remaining at 1.03 times power setting 7 shooting a 14.3 crossman at 840 f/sec.

    He also has an extreme version of the board that will get 50 ftlbs in 0.22 from 250 bars-220 bars with a 29 grain pellet and 10 equal shots.  While these tanks are tested, supposedly to at least 1.5 times I don’t fill past 230 bar.  By example,

    If you fill up to 230 bar at 41 deg Fahrenheit and the temp rises to 77 deg Fahrenheit your bottle pressure will be 246.5 bar, at 85 degrees it is 250 bar.

    it says max bar on mine fill to 230. but when I chroneyed mine I now fill to 190 and I can shoot down to 80 with really no curve in fps .
    ​I never fill to 230 any more.

    but it you wont regret it!

    I’ll break out my .25 this weekend and start at 230 bar then work my way down to where I’m loosing velocity. I’ll post the results on here.

    My humble opinion: buy one!, a friend of mine has one in .22, it’s beautiful, accurate, & consistent, I’ve shot it and really like it, I still like my RAW’s better… but I’m aliitle biased!

    nomo. I love both my raw 177 and my air wolf 177.. overall my raw blows away my air wolf in the accuracy dept.
    ​then again the raw bm50o was made too.

    ​my air wolf is not too shabby thou with lots of 10 shot groups the size of my pinkie fingernail at 50 yards

    I agree!, I consider my RAW’s more of target style guns, that’s mainly what I use them for, (unfortunately  not sanctioned events yet), but I really would consider one if I wanted a accurate do all gun, although the wood might be to nice for field work if your clumsy like me!

When I did the upgrade, I was able to tighten up my groups. It also gives me the option to shoot different grain pellets at their optimal speed. Like I said…. I have a standard .22 and I get a crazy amount of shots per fill.

    It makes the most efficient use of your air of any gun made.
