    Dang! Double Duty Daystates!

    AoA and Flintsack?

    Both AOA.

    I really love my Red Wolf, and I don't harbor the stigma about electronics in airguns as some do.  I love the Red Wolf trigger, action (ultra fast lock time), its ergonomic adjustability, its shot count and how quiet it shoots.  But most of all, I like how the gun makes me a better shooter than I am.  So it was a fairly easy process to talk myself into buying a Pulsar, especially how they are currently discounted.

    However I couldn't get myself to stop thinking about the Wolverines.  Such beautiful lines, and although mechanical, still supposed to have a wonderful trigger.

    It took me a while and I went round-and-round, but I finally decided it would be the Pulsar HP with the Saxon edition stock – if they still had one in stock (was a bit of a question when I got AOA on the phone, but they checked physical inventory and had at least 1 left.)

    Finally – decision made, new gun bought.

    Until the next day when a Wolverine R shows up in AOA's used gun section.  D'oh!!!

    Would have preferred the Forrester stock (in both guns actually), but they were OOS in the Pulsars and would have cost $500 more than the used price of the Wolverine R I bought.  What the He11, its only money after all.

    AOA got them all checked out and shipped last week, and they got to my doorstep this evening.  I actually really like the wood on both guns.  Scopes on them as of tonight, and sighting in starts tomorrow.  Surprised that the Pulsar doesn't feel at all as heavy as some make it out to be.  The grip on the Wolverine was supposed to be rather large, and it feels great in my big mitts.

    Glad the wife is out of town when those long gun boxes hit the front porch!

    VERY nice shooters ya got there!!  I am finding myself turning to DayState more and more….

    I am in awe of my Red Wolf .22 HP as you said "makes me a better shooter than I am"…

    Currently I have 2 .22 Red Wolf HP, .25 Red Wolf HP, .303 hi-lite, Pulsar .25 (non HP) and a .22 Wolverine HP R coming soon…..They just do everything well is best I can describe it.

    I still shoot my FX guns and have quite a collection of those and others but when I pick up one if my DayState guns I know they are gonna put that pellet right where I want it time and time again….

    Enjoy!!!!

    Kind of spent my afternoon chasing my tail on zeroing and accuracy testing.  In the end I'm going to do all of the accuracy testing over again as I was attempting to use Daystate Soverign 8.44's.  They are made by JSB so should be just as good, right?  Well, no, not in these guns.  Will work with JSBs exclusively tomorrow and see what I get.

    That used Wolverine is going to be a great shooter!  Love the trigger.

    Expected that I would also love the trigger on the Pulsar, and I really do.  But that little momma is LOUD.  Only backyard friendly on Hi and Med with a Sumo.  Tolerable without a silencer on Lo only, but that seemed to give plenty of power for 25 yard work.

    What a pleasure these guns will be with the right pellets!

    What a mess getting things set up today, and getting used to the new toys:

    My .22 Pulsar spends most if its time in the back yard on low power. With a Donny Tatsu it’s just a whisper and still accurate with plenty of power for plinking and reactive targets. And as a bonus, you get tons of shots on a fill.

    WOW – I really like my new-to-me Wolverine.  Went out and repeated accuracy testing (25 yards, no wind) with JSB 8.44 pellets, and what a difference from my initial outing with the gun.  Even all coffee'd up I was really happy with my results.  I've only been shooting off the bench for a couple of months and still have plenty of inconsistencies in my technique but the gun made me look better than I am.  Any of the real inconsistencies in the groups with the JSBs were definitely my own fault.

    I started out off bags, which is actually not that comfortable for me.  My bags are too low, so I am laying on the gun.  After some zeroing and groups I attached the Saber Tactical pic rail to the bottle and shot off a bipod and rear bag.  Much taller off the table and more comfortable for me.

    It looks like the magazine I got with the gun is pretty reasonably accurate, which is a big plus to me for a Daystate (my CARM mags are still in the mail).

    Gun shot great with JSB 8.44 Diabolos.  At the end tried Daystate Kaisers (8.64) and Sovereigns (8.44).  It hated the Kaisers and didn't like the Sovereigns much better.  Both of those pellets really fed into the breech much more easily than the JSBs (the Kaisers had virtually no resistance loading).

    Shot 110 rounds and the bottle only went from about 240 Bar down to 185 Bar, so was still on the reg (reg set to 150 Bar).  Looks like I should be able to easily get 125+ shots per fill.  I love bottle guns!

    Here is this morning's 'work' with the Wolverine:

    Used Daystates for sale:

    If the 5 year warranty was not properly transfered (by sending the gun in for a warrantry transfer inspection), from the original owner to the next owner: your 1 year old used Daystate will cost you a few bucks to have repaired should anything go wrong. 

    Don't let people tell you thier used Daystates for sale are covered under warranty. THEY ARE NOT! 

    Daystates are like Ferrari's, Porsche's, Mercedes:  the best thing going when they are running right….you know the rest. 

    Even the best airguns are not immune to needing repair and maintenace/service.
