    Hi ! Im thinking to buy a new airgun (I currently own a Kral puncher jumbo .22 with a FFP Discovery optics) and i dont know what would it be the best option: the Crown synthetic or the Wolverine HP R ? .22 or .25 ? slugs ?

    The intended use is to do some target shooting under 100 yds with some wind and small game hunting without the need of recharging air. Lighter weight its appreciated.

    Thanks for the insight.

    Both are good. The Crown has a higher capacity mag, which isnt always talked about during comparisons. For hunting it makes little difference but on the bench it made a big difference to me.

    Wolverine is available in left hand and it comes with an L/W polygonal barrel.

    Owned both… still own the Wolverine R in .22 cal. Mines had well over 3,000. Pellets through it.  Dependable, accurate, efficient.

    The Wolverine R is a fine quality high end gun, the stock, finish and dependability is no contest. Old world craftsmanship meets modern components.

    I have had both, the bottle capacity is the same, if you want traditional feel and quality and a gun that shoots straight out of the box without any fuss it's the Wolverine.

    If you want some versatility and like to fiddle the Crown is a good gun.

    I understand the FX is significantly lighter?  True or not?   That might be a consideration for some .

    The FX is more "adjustable" than the Wolverine if you feel that adjustments are needed with your style of shooting.

    The Woverine R (I have one) uses a sling shot type hammer that eliminates bounce completely and provides a very high shot count per fill.  Add the LW barrel and the quality build and you got yourself a fantastic shooting gun.

    More FX's are sold so you hear about more problems with them as well.  The odds are stacked against volume.

    The "R" in the Wolverine is a designed for Daystate Huma regulator and it has NO creep what so ever which seems to be an occurrence with some FX regulators.

    The major importer of Daystate products is Air Guns of Arizona.  They have numerous videos showing maintenance and repair of the Daystate line and are good at answering questions you may have about the gun via e-Mail.

    The Wolverine costs more, but you already know that.

    I know this one wasn't on your list, but you might consider the FX Royale 400 in .22. If easy adjustability isn't high on your list, the Royale is a great rifle. The original Smooth Twist barrel seems to never need cleaning, high shot count, my POI never changes, light and very accurate. HS adjusts via the traditional nut in the rear, and the reg has to be removed for adjustment, but neither should need attention after initial setup. I consider the Royale the best value available in a high end PCP. (Full disclosure, I replaced the FX reg with a Huma). I owned both a Crown and Wolverine R, and both are very good rifles.

    I have tried both and bought the Wolverine R based predominantly on fit and a little on looks. I am 6ft 4 and found the Crown just too small. Admittedly the Wolverine weighs more but there is not a significant difference and the gun just fits me which is giving me great results out in the fields. I do sometimes wonder about the Crown as it is much easier to tweak, however once my guns are set up I tend to leave them alone. At the end of the day both great guns so you won't go far wrong with either.

    100% agree with this.

    I never owned a Wolverine, but almost bought a Wolverine 2. I have the Crown and I can say that I never expected to be able to get the huge range of power as I can get with it. I've had it as low as 14FPE and as high as 74FPE in .22.

    Also, the Continuum package is absolutely like getting two rifles for the price of one.

    to me the daystate  are more aesthetically pleasing. more curvy while fx is more clinical. cold looking if that makes sense.
