    A couple pictures of the new Daystate Wolverine .22. I always wanted a Daystate to add to my collection. Something about them has always caught my eye. Wood on them is just beautiful. Ya…. I know it does not have a regulator, but I generally shoot off my bench tethered. After watching the Shot Show video (AEAC & AOA) at the Daystate booth, I decided to inquire about when it would be in the US. AOA said we have them in now. Caught me off guard actually not being on their website. I actually thought that they would arrive in a couple months. What made me pull the trigger on the purchase was the thought maybe they would sell out fast being an upgraded model. The other thing was, when I inquired about the moderator, they stated it came with a Hugget. From the AOA shot show video Tony Belas said that they would come to the US with the carbon fiber Daystate Reflex moderator. Maybe in the future they will??? I would have paid to upgrade to a Hugget but at this point I didn’t have to.

    I ran 3 pellets through it so far to see how quiet it was. It is quiet, but no more than my FX Royale .22. Has a twangier sound from the receiver. I think the barrel noise would have been quieter than the FX. The bolt was surprising harder to cock than expected. I think for bench shooting, it will pull it off target when cocking. As for scope I put an Athlon Argos 8-34X56 on it with BKL 301 rings.

    If you buy rifles on a regular basis, I would recommend the Wheeler scope mounting kit with torque wrench. It makes it a pleasure to mount a scope.

    Now all I need to do is shoot it. I have ton of home projects I’m trying to complete. Trying hurry so I have all late spring and summer to play. This was kind of my reward for doing them.

OAL – 44 3/4 inches
    Weight that Daystate claims, I didn’t weigh myself – 7-8 pounds.

    Anybody knows what this is? It came in a bag with the gun. I’m guessing it goes on the end of the factory shroud without a moderator?

    It’s for help connecting the fill fitting for those with big fingers.  My brocock bantam has one.  My fingers are small and I don’t need it

    Giles talks about them on the bantam  videos

    Congratulations! She’s a beaut! 

    My buddy DOUGER had a Regal once that was great in every respect, except the cocking effort. It was at least double that of my Compatto.

    I wonder if they did that on purpose: short stroke under high spring pressure = shorter lock time and higher accuracy?

    How much did the scope mounting kit go for?

    Great Looking set up with the scope. I’ve been admiring and researching the Wolverine. I’m interested in hearing your impressions after you’ve had a chance to shoot it for awhile. Have fun!

    Dirte,

    This is a true story.  I’d been looking for a new rifle in 177, but the FX streamlines were sold out.  AoA steered me to the Daystate Wolverines, 1 gen at close-out prices, but they only had .22 cal.  I went ahead and placed the order and all would have been fine.  The next day I got a notice that my credit card was kicked out due to the fraud department, the charge was not consistent with normal spending and geographic location.

    I called AoA back and had cold feet about the Wolverine due to overlap with my other .22 PCP, and opted for a Bantam in 177 instead.  This time, the CC company had been notified prior to the charge and there was no problem.

    A Wolverine may still be in the future, they look amazing.

    The usual delicious wood from Daystate. It really looks smart. 

    Have they changed the stock shape a little? The grip looks to be at more of an angle. 

    The bolt will feel stiff if you are used to side-lever guns. You don’t get the same leverage with a bolt-action but it should loosen up a little over time.

    That is one fine looking rifle and one of the best looking stocks I have ever seen.
