    I have a RAW HM 1000X with LW classic barrel in .25 cal, I don’t  know what to do if sell my RAW and buy a Daystate wolverine R HP .25 also, or buy a LW polygonal barrel from martin at RAW… i want the same caliber, but more energy and without loosing accuracy at long distances…. I need your help to decide, ACCURACY is my priority.

    Stay with the RAW!, call SPAW, he will take care of you! He is a advertiser on this forum.

    I say do either daystate or RAW, upgrade current rifle to polygonal lothar Walther, then get a second rifle in.30 since you are looking for energy and accuracy. If you've never shot a.30, it will be a great experience and will diversify your arsenal.

    Well the D.S look nice ive never held one.you may want to think about. Having the rifle redone. To a 30 cal .the reg setting is almost the same as a 25 .cal upgrade to 30 and 25 cal polygon barrels SMH77 does the swap over i. Less than 5 minutes this this would give you the power. And accuracy you desire.Martin just came out with a hi power 22 cal upgrade 50 fpe. Maybe if u like the smaller caliber s. He can di this with a 25 and 22 barrels good luck HYNZIE give SMH77 A PM hes a wealth of knowledge

    my raw with both poly and lw barrels is the most consistently accurate air gun iver ever shot. my raw is a 500bm mk2

    I do own a daystate air wolf in the same cal.. but over all the raw is more accurate and consistant in doing so.

    if you want accuracy I think raw is the way to go for accuracy. thou the air wolf sure looks nice and  feels good in the hands

    and as well my poly barrel in my raw at long range  seems to be more accurate than my lw barrel.

    just wanted to let you know that…. seems the poly barrel is more consistant in the wind… hope this helps in your decision

    Well … many good points have been made. I recently acquired a Daystate Wolverine R in .22 (two months old) and I own a RAW HM1000X in .25. Bought it new about 2 years ago.

    Both are exceptional rifles and both are very accurate and fun to shoot and to date I have put about 500 rounds through the Wolverine, as for the RAW I have owned it so long I would imagine it has about 1,000+ shots easy through it.

    I find the more "traditional" stock on the RAW more appealing than the stock on the Daystate. The one on the Wolverine is comfortable and affords a good cheek weld and eye position. 

    Side by side it is a hard call. Take it from someone who just sold two rifles. You will take a loss possibly if you sell. The market is weird right now. I shot both rifles yesterday. Both performed quite well. The RAW gets you two more shots per magazine and the magazines are less expensive.  The Daystate seems like more of a refined machine with the edge towards being more technologically advanced. But that is just my opinion. The RAW may be "older" technology, however, it simply works!

    I like the idea of keeping the RAW and modifying it…

    kdog you seem to think like I do too.. I have the raw bm500 177 with lrt stock and the daystate airwolf.. both amazing guns for different reasons.

    my air wolf has about 20k shots throught  it in 6 years.

    my raw bm500 in 1 year has 2k shots

    RAW all the way, if Martin is still personally involved with gun production. After that, all bets are off.
