    Still trying to figure out which path to go for picking my airgun.

    After shot show…. I saw the video on the daystae woverine 2 r.  I know there isn’t a lot of info on it right now, but I wondering what your initial thoughts are on it?

    I’m looking at the fx crown as my comparison.   (Since I’m in Canada, I have a limited selection of airguns, ie, no bullpups allowed)

    Cheers

    It looks very promising, I agree we need more info. I like all the features that I’ve seen so far, but would like to see an adjustable cheek piece. I’m a lefty. The ambidextrous stock and the ability to change the side the cocking lever are also major pluses for me.

    I like the Wolverine 2R with the exception of the 2 micro gauges next to each other.  I would rather they had put the regulator pressure gauge on the bottom of the stock instead of two together. It detracts from  the looks of an otherwise very nice rifle.  What I do like is the Huma regulator being included in the design and FINALLY Daystate has incorporated side lever action into the Air Wolf and Wolverine.  They are only about 8 years behind the competition in incorporating this feature into their full length rifles.  I’m a lefty too so I do appreciate the reversible side lever and the ambidextrous stock design.  I have had excellent reliability from the Daystate rifles I’ve owned over the years.  I have friends who have had poor reliability out of their FX rifles primarily from frequent leaking issues.  I’ve had excellent performance from an FX Streamline. I’ve had good  experience with an Impact after Ermest Rowe repaired the leaking regulator.  I’d probably choose a Wolverine 2R over a Crown if I was given one.  My Wolverine SE .22 calber has been a stellar performer and gets lots of positive comments when it’s at the shooting range.

    I like that FX is undoubtedly very innovative. Always pushing the envelope a little further down the line. Disclaimer: I have never owned one, but I spend a lot of time reading and learning from all of you. Lots of folk complain about them and leaks and issues etc. The ones who love them, LOVE them and there are almost no other. 

    Daystate really does not lack in the innovation department. If you look at what they do with the Pulsar, Red Wolf, etc, you can see this to be true. This tech may not be for you, maybe you prefer a regulator, but it does not take away from the innovation. They exude quality build, they contract the best in the industry to make their stocks, and have the best guarantee out there (for whatever it’s worth) Their Harper valve works very well, add a Regulator to it and you may have the best of both worlds. 

    The W2R for me is probably the way to go. I want to see what it looks like with the traditional Walnut stock. I don’t like that very shiny finish on the laminates and hate the finish on the Red Wolf. Also, the lack of information is pretty bad. There is almost nothing on their website as of yet, and AoA’s website, to me, is always lacking. Hopefully will get more info in the days to come. I would not buy a W2R until I see some reviews.  

    Edit: ….for me I would love to see this Daystate W2R “type C” as I don’t really like bottles. I know, I know, shot count. I don’t care so much about that. I prefer a tube with a built in rail.

     I’m another lefty just chiming in on the conversation . I am also interested in purchasing a Wolverine R , but need to first see a review or two before making my final decision .  Was also considering the new Air Arms ultimate sporter XS ,but cannot find any reviews on it either .

    Here a Lefty too, i’ve own several air rifles, the RAW hm1000 in .22 its my favorite air rifle sporter laminated gray stock right lever, also own a vulcan and it´s a really good ambi rifle, you could get the tactical version wich i belive is in the carabine air rifle lenght category and maybe its permited in Canada, those are really good rifles, i’ve also used to own an FX Crown .25 Cal walnut stock from the first shippment that get to the US, and actually get it at a really good price from my airgun dealer it is super light and a easy all day carry for hunting, super precise shooter, but a friend get to my price and had to let it go, there are some days that i regret from this,

    Now i have my eyes in the Wolverine 2 R as well and i think that if the stock is similar to the crown we shouldn’t need the adjustable cheek piece as it should shouldered just fine even with high rings and a 56 objective scope, like the crown used to, the regulator and sidelever is just what i’ve been waiting for getting a daystate, after all most of us dont need a lot of adjustments on our rifles once we get them working as we like.

    Cheers from Mexico

     So hopefully next change for my fellow lefties is , possibly a quality rifle scope where they swap the side turret and parallax wheel for us . Wouldn’t that be nice?

    Just wish it had a bottom rail. With such a high price point on these guns and yet you have to drill into a stock is crazy. The options to keep the stock clean if you didn’t want to use the rail exist too. Sometimes this market makes me want to start my own PCP company and design a gun that has features we all want. I think an industry slam dunk is just hanging out there and the company that actually listens to it’s customers and reads some of these posts could make a lot of money.

    I agree.  I would like a bipod also.  I would have loved to see a rail on the bottom :(  

    I’m looking forward to some reviews of the W2R when it comes out.

Yea it does!!

    I sometimes take Dextrose and can count as well.

    With regards innovation, well that’s not really fair to slate Daystate. I 100% agree that they needed to step into the regulated market, but:
    – They believed that the Harper Slingshot negated the need for a regulator in their sub12 ft/lb models.
    – Their magazine design doesn’t allow you to multi-load.
    – Didn’t they first introduce magnetic components into their guns?

    To me, there’s 7 innovations already.  ;)

    Amazing rifle mine is most definitely better that my other Daystate rifle and dare I say it my Crown.
    As with all rifles some like them some do not it’s up to you what and when you buy.

    I have had mine for a month or more now and the best way to describe it is fantastic.

    This is my second PCP with the Gauntlet being the first.  It took a lot of work to get the Gauntlet stabilized and as accurate as many others on this site and others claimed theirs was.  I was suffering from drastic POI shifts.

    The |Wolverine is spot on every time I pick it up.  If I miss the target at 40 yards by more than 1/4 inch, I can tell that there is a hidden wind blowing.  When conditions are right, it repeatedly shoots one hole at 40 yards.  It is almost boring.

    The shot count is very high also and the pressure gauge shows you when you are coming off the regulator and it is time for a refill.

    If I had to choose between the two brands? Daystate all the way. Unless we’re talking Impact Vs Pulsar (the ugliest airgun..ever) But seriously, Daystate is finally bringing the fight to FX. In the high end rifle segment, I think they’re about to take the lead. Wolverine R Vs Crown? No brainer (IMO)

    Do the Wolverines have adjustable power?

    “Glem.Chally”Do the Wolverines have adjustable power?

    Not by the simple turn of a screw or knob like some of the FX guns and that is something I thought about before purchase.  Then, as a result of “thinking,” I asked me, “just how often are you going to change power, which effects POI, accuracy, pellet choice and all that goes with it?  My answer to me was, “about never,” but that’s just me.  I am happy with my 900 FPS I am getting with the H&N Barracudas I use and the one hole groups.

    It is like the person that buys a new golf driver that is multi-adjustable for loft, face position, with movable weights on the club to promote draw or fade and then sets everything to mid point neutral and plays it that way.
  All  those fancy adjustments don’t do a thing for him.  So too, the FX tinker knobs would go to waste for me so I went Daystate and will never look back.

    Don’t get me wrong, I am generally Mr. Tinker himself, but in this case, perfection doesn’t need a tink.

    @springrrrr does that mean you find the pellet that the guns shoots well, and never change unless you can’t get it any longer?  Do you make any adjustments for that first round of selecting the pellet?  For pesting, I am using either H&N Baracuda Green or the GTO Predator in .22, and with my springer there is a significant POI shift.  The only adjustment I will make when switching between pellets is a few clicks down on my scope :0)

    That wolverine looks really good, love the lever action and finally……a regulator. It is on my “To buy list’ but I think you should check out RAW HM1000x in thumbhole stock or LRT long range target stock as RAW makes some incredible rifle. Accurate and powerful guns and made in the good US of A. 

    Also, i do have the FX Crown in blue laminate .22, and it shoots smoooooooth. Very nice gun, will never sell it and love everything about it. I have 0 issues with it along with my two Impacts which i also have No issues since i got them and love them dearly. Hope this helps your answer some what
