    I see on the Daystate site that you can get their Wolverines in 25 cal & 50 FT LBs.  Does anyone have one?

    I just looked on their site that you provided as well as AOA’s site and I don’t see a .25 Wolverine. They have the 60 fpe .22 Is that what you meant?

    Oh I see it now thanks! I went straight to the Wolverine page and they are not listed there. Must not be out yet. I’m surprised they haven’t made a .25 before now.

    I want them to release the .223 Wolverine in 80fpe like they did with the Air Ranger. That was an awesome rifle. These HL’s would do even better.

    50fpe in .25 cal is not a lot by today’s standards, unless the rifle is regulated. These Wolverine HI-Lite’s are really awesome guns, such a great build quality, wow. I try not to look at them so I don’t hit that buy now button :)

    p.s. The way I look at this Wolverine platform is that they have a potential to turn these rifles into a Beaumont type of muzzle energy air guns if they want to, at least the .303 version. Right now at 100fpe it is sorta not reaching it’s full potential. But I am sure they wanted to release something that would or could sell in Europe also.

    I’m waiting to see the shot count on the .25 Wolverine. If it’s close to what the Royale 500 gives, the FX may have some competition!

    I posted earlier on this forum that I was trying to decide on a .25. I was considering FX Royal 500, RAW HM1000x, or the Daystate Airwolf MCT Extreme. I was concerned about weight and length. Some here provided some appreciated advice about those things.  I reported that I ordered the Air Wolf (which I did on Dec. 29).  The rifle arrived yesterday.  It was beautiful. It looked deadly. It was heavy and long. Nothing at all wrong with this rifle but I couldn’t love it, mainly because of the 48″ length, and for $2,600 I needed to. 

    So, I didn’t even turn the gun on (key). I called AoA. They were unbelievably understanding!  I was ready to swear off on-line ordering of anything like this again but AoA gets it.

    The rifle is on its way back to Arizona as I write this.  My replacement will be the five inches and 1.5 pound lighter Daystate Wolverine B Hi-Lite in .25.  Saved after spending another $90 on return and new shipping charges, about $400 to boot.

    I’m going to miss the opportunity to experience the electric trigger and data feature of the MCT. However, I also realize it won’t take me long at all to know the shot count and sweet spot for this rifle. The trigger on all these PCPs seem to be great, much better than I’m used to with  my rim and centerfires.  The electronics would have probably gotten old and unneeded pretty quick?

    Yeah, if you are going to pack it around 1.5 pounds is a lot.  Not counting the length.  I really like the looks of it and the weight, may get one myself.  Me being odd as I am, would rather have it without the moderator, just the shroud.   For looks I would rather have a efficient full length shroud versus a  shroud with a moderator.  I think those moderators on this model are epoxied somehow.

     Last summer someone commented on AGN  that the AirWolf Extreme was not a woods walker–more for the bench. T. Belas has said all Daystates are hunting guns–but maybe not in this case. Wonder what the shot count would be?  Would be interested in a review. Not that I plan on buying one. Just an obsessive viewer of reviews.

    I bought the Air Wolf Extreme on December 20y and received it about 10 days later.  It was exactly as described on the AoA website. Beautiful and the electronics too me are so cool.  But, as I feared it was just too unwieldy for me. Too long and too heavy. I could not see myself packing in the squirrel woods. I sent it back to AoA the next day.  The folks at AoA were terrific!  So, it cost me $90 to get my hands on the rifle (too and from shipping of $45 each way .. a lot cheaper than flying to Phoenix).  

    I exchanged it for the Wolverine B Hi-Lite in .25. The Wolverine is at least 1 pound lighter and about 4″ shorter.  I’m going to miss the electronics and I might find in the end that anything longer than 40″ is m ore than I want?  

    I’m wondering if I should have exchanged the extreme for the Air Wolf MCT in .22?  I was hung up on wanting a .25 (I have two, .22 PCPs) and I know the squirrels don’t need that much “attention”.

    How is it shooting, at what velocity and have you checked the accuracy

    Yes, would like to hear or see how yours is doing as well. .
    hsnmz, here is another thread. I have been posting how mine is fairing & bowwild has posting velocity chart & curve.

    I posted some information about my Wolverine B Hi-Lite on this thread:  
    http://airgunnation.dev/topic/daystate-wolverine-25/

    I filled it to about 225 Bar and with my ProChrony got the following 39 shots. 
    #1. 848,856,853,850,851,844,852,846,843,840,836,840, 839,835,836,828,829,826,823,820,282,814, 813,806,809,805,802,  #32. 800, 793,794,788, 783,778, 775, 772.
    The pellet was Barracuda 31 grain.

    Have you shot any groups yet?  Have you tried 25 grain jsbs? That is the only ones I tried so far that shoot good.  My groups tighten up most when it falls to around 880 down to 850. You can’t see it @ 25 yards , but is apparent @ 50 …I have shot over 1000 pellets though mine in the last few days.  I am almost out, ordered more from Jims Precision Air guns, that it who I bought mine from. I really like dealing with him.  He put sling swivel studs on mine, I was afraid of messing up the stock. I try to shoot between the wind.  The wind seems to affect this set up  more then my .22s.  They shoot faster 950-1000.  However  thought the heavier pellet, would be less affected.  Oh well keep us posted.

    @bowwild and @nutcracker saw your posts. Beautiful guns and really impressive looking strings. The first 32 shots are very tight in variation. How much does the gun weigh ?

    Have fun guys

    Electronics for a gun like the pulsar seems extremely overated. I dont think it is neccessary as manual switches could change the power from low med high. Also having to worry about replacing the battery and stuff is another huge pain. Shot count and most other stuff is shown on the manual pressure guage near the air resevoir. No need for them fancy electronics :/. Just my opinion on electronic guns. Unless it is auto calculating pellet drop at range then you can do without. Then again id expect that on a scope, not a gun.

    I’d be happy to be convinced I don’t “need” an MCT (electronic Daystate) … that would save me a bunch of money!  I’ll keep reading posts about the subject as I find them on this and a couple of other airgun forums.

    The MCT guns are nice. The electronics are solid. IMO, they are a bit under powered in .25. They are a bit loud in stock form as well, unless they come with an additional mod now. The .25 Wolverine you have is great and looks to come with a hugget shroud. I would shoot the 25.4 Kings. I would fill to 230 bar and shoot three mags then fill up again. It looks like a very solid platform and has good power. If you desire a similar rifle in .25 with great power and very consistent regulated shot to shot consistency, the RAW HM1000 is a top notch contender.
