1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

Anyone bought a Daystate Wolverine B yet?

    Some will know that I'm hardly the world's biggest Daystate fan; for a host of reasons of which I'll happily enlighten you if poked hard enough :p

    That said from the (relatively) little I've seen of it, the new Wolverine B looks like quite a promising proposition when compared to the outgoing Air Ranger - it's certainly the only Daystate I've found of interest for a very long time.

    In light of this (and the tenacity of the perpetual Daystate publicity machine) I'm a little surprised than none have popped up on the board yet. Has anyone bought one, does anyone know someone who has one, or is anyone considering one? Not that I'm thinking about it, but I'd be interested to hear some opinions and see how the new rifles are proving in use :)

    I dont own one but did put about 100 pellets through one . My opinion comparing it to my ranger is ....the wolverine does have a better bolt .feels abit lighter and maybe a little bit better balanced but doesnt feel the same quality as a ranger but cant say why ....as for accuracy theres nothing in em atb

    I've considered getting one but I've spent quite a bit on getting my R10 sorted (blueprint, LW barrel, huub shroud) so I'm not sure if I can justify it yet. It will be my next gun I think.

    i have one in .177,I've also had .177/.22 air rangers and mk4is daystates and i think the wolverine is the best of them all,it feels light when shouldered because great balance,new bolt is silky smooth,the fact you cant now put two pellets in the barrel is a lot better,the stock detailing is second to none,only downside is no sling studs so added them and the shroud with silencer is very long so got mine cut down 120mm but its the best rifle I've owned,get one.

    Thanks for the thoughts :)

    Perhaps the time of year (and subsequent lack of money) is keeping uptake on the low side..

    Shouldered one other day at BAR. Was considering trading the Huntsman in for a Regal as it is better balanced. The Wolverine B though was in a different league of balance. Feels a couple of pounds lighter (it isn't) through fantastic balancing. Ideal for moi with a buggered left shoulder.

    BUT it's another £300 so will have to wait a wee while longer. :eek:(

    One of the guys at the range has one, he seems very impressed with it so far too, nice and accurate as you'd hope really! I've handled it but not shot it, balance is nice though and it all looked very nicely made and presented. It's got a different magazine to the other Daystates because the indexing system on the rifle itself is all new, hopefully they won't be such a PITA as the old type but I don't know! The Wolverine in question wasn't very loud with no moderator on it (it has a nice wide shroud on it), and they are meant to be very quiet with the new Airstream moderator on them too.

    It is a reflex type, yes. I think it only adds 2-3 inches to the overall length of the rifle once it's screwed on. I think it's the Airstream Mk.6, which I've heard is much more effective than its predecessor, the Mk.5.

    Hi, want to fit a sling stud on my Wolverine B. where did you fit the front sling stud? Or rather how far from the front of the end of the stock did you put it?
    Its quite thin where the stock is crafted around the buddy bottle.
    thanks.

    Tried one before buying a mk4 and it wasn't for me. I would suggest trying before buying :)

    Mine is five months old now, must say I'm over the moon with it, it's .177 very quiet and super accurate, was very lucky with the stock when my rfd ordered it, Daystate had two on the shelf so he had both, when they arrived both had select stocks and so I had the pick.
    Pellet wise it loves AA field 4.52 JSB exact 4.52 and JSB express 4.52s, it has also consistently been stable at 11.1 since I've owned it and it's used every week, does over 200 shots per fill, so very happy all round.
    Atb.
    Edit. Also like to add there is no dedicacted single shot mag available yet, rowan have had one on the drawing board for ages, but the std air ranger mag fits because it has a recess underneath, meaning the indexing pin don't foul, what me and a guy at our range did was to add another magnet to the mag on the side 1.5x6mm this makes it hold firm but still floats enough to eliminate any damage to the pellet skirt, this means when the bolt is pulled back you just touch the mag and it flicks out.

    Have you seen the smooth shooting Westy tray, I bought the Daystate single shot tray (whitch you have to take the locating pins out of) it was ok done the job but then saw the Westy tray and its far superior to the daystate tray.
