    Good day all. i ordered a Daystate Renegade from airgunsofarizona as they were out of FX Wildcats but it's a pain to find an reviews of the gun. Does anyone have any photos of the groups the gun can accomplish at 50 yards out to 100.? id grateful appreciate that. just want to see its level of consistency over the 60 claimed shots, thanks guys.

    I can only show you groups at 25 yards, hopefully someone can give you more info. I had some issues with mine, but I can say when it's shooting right it's pretty consistent out to 60+ rounds. It is a heavy bull-pup, with the scope it's almost 10 lbs. Mine seems to like JSB 18's.  I like the gun, but it is much different than my Wildcat.

    With all due respect, why are you seeking to base a gun’s accuracy by referring to someone else’s group or a review that provides it?  I can tell you this in all my years of shooting several airguns: even the cheaper ones are just as capable of shooting to the shooter’s ability.  The accuracy of an airgun is dependent on the skill of the shooter.  That was a lesson I learned some time ago, and I continue to realize it more and more.   

    Cheers!

    I for one do not believe that all guns are just as capable in accuracy as every other gun.  Yes, the shooter is the MAJOR component in accuracy but if I took my 4 different PCP's and shot them all under perfect conditions on the same day they would not all shoot the same size groups.  If accuracy is just the shooter, why shoot groups in reviews at all?  If I have completely misinterpreted, misread or just plain missed the point please set me straight.

    I have the standard .22 Renegade and the .25 HP Renegade. They both are awesome guns and the triggers can be adjusted down to a hair (2-3 oz) if you want. I have shot well over 10k thru the .22 and about 5k thru the .25.  Had a magazine indexing pin break on the .22 but AOA had it back to me in two weeks. Only complaints I have are on the weight, they are a heavy BP compared to the Wildcat. Other complaint is on the recoil of the .25 HP, now I know pushing a 34gr pellet at over 900fps should give you some recoil but mine jumps like a 22LR. Compared to my WC Compact in .25 its night and day. My last issue I have is with Daystate and the cases they send with the HP. It's so narrow it wont hold a gun with a scope mounted. My standard Renegade came with the same design case but much wider and would accept any scope on the gun. The HP not so much, so why add the dollars to the cost if it's useless? Those 3 issues are all I have to complain about. The Renegade will shoot and shoot far too. My farthest shot with the .25 is 165 yards on a golf ball. The .22 will perform easily to 100 yards on starlings and provide easily 70 + shots. The nice part is I can use my renegade mags in my Redwolf so I didn't need to spend more money. Daystate makes a fine PCP IMO. My Renegades have sat for a few weeks with a new RedWolf and FX Compact arriving in June. Last thing don't go cheap on the 9volt batteries, a good Energizer battery will give you over 8k shots.

    Hookster just reminded me of something.

    First thing to do when you get the Renegade is replace the junk 9 volt battery they provide, with a good one. They claim it will last for 17000 shots. Mine lasted less than a month, fortunately I was at home when it failed. It's easy to replace but you don't want be removing the stock when you're in the field.

    I pack a spare in my case as well. Trust me it wont fail when you want it to. I was in a hunting shack and glad I had my case. Easy fix if you are prepared.
