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.

    Been looking at buying a new air rifle for a while and as you do my budget has crept up, iv checked with the wife and she's cool about spending the extra cash ,so think I'm gonna go balls out looking at a redwolf looking at the forum members people seem to be happy with there purchase my question is,with the electronics do they require any special above and beyond normal maintainance and can u send it to your local rfd for service and repair or does it have to go back to daystate and cost implications

    Depends what is wrong with it in short

    I’ve got 3 redwolfs and have never had an issue, but if you ever did have one if it’s a seal etc then any one can fix that etc.

    If something happens with the electronics then it would generally have to go to a specialist or back to Daystate

    That said it would be very unusual for much to go wrong with the electronics.

    As for Maintenance, no nothing special just keep batteries topped up and air in the cylinder and you’re good to go!

    Had my redwolf for over a year and not one problem.
    Just clean and look after like any other rifle.
    Charge the battery once a month to keep it healthy.
    Just a brilliant and very accurate air rifle.
    Enjoy the best trigger ever!

    We have four in the family collection and have had no problems with them apart from a duff batterie. The only thing that you would need to keep an eye on is the stock they do tend to scratch in the field if you are not careful unless you get the Walnut stock or Safari stock which is awesome. The are laser accurate and have good shot counts. Here are mine minus the Walnut it’s out with my lad.

    Personally, I wouldn’t touch a Daystate with a barge pole,
    I once bought a mk3 and it was absolutely the most un-accurate rifle I’ve ever owned in 50 years of shooting,
    And the after sales service was terrible, they kept telling me there’s nothing wrong with it
    Despite shooting 2inch groups at 25yards

    They've got a used Bluewolf in Solware for, I think, £1600 I spied the other day.
    Looks clean as well.

    As far as "special requirements" as long as you dont go swimming with it you will be fine!

    Rarely if ever do they go back with electronics issues, batteries have to be legally shipped with no charge and this can muck LIPO's up occasionally, rough handling and you can snap the battery lead connection but it's a two minute fix.

    They are pulled up on leaks, but as usual it's blown way out of proportion as the number that have leaked can be counted on one hand!

    You will love the REDWOLF, it's the top of the tree in aesthetics and an incredible performer.

    The trigger is Marmite! Personally I don't like it at all and it will be the reason I put mine up for sale very soon now. On the other hand a lot of people love it. It's good idea to give it a try before you commit yourself.

    On the plus side, I find it light and well balanced and personally I've not come across a gun capable of shooting better groups, although I've found quite a few which - for me - are just as good, like either of my Steyrs and my HW100 . The thing I like best is that it's pretty well one fill of air = one tin of pellets.

    Just buy one :D

    I've had three, still have two, and they are the best rifles I've ever had. No issues at all.

    They are very accurate, the target below was with difference sizes of JSBs just to see what it preferred, all 5 shot groups at 30m - just brilliant, not pellet fussy at all.

    I've heard of a few people breaking the electrical cable that attaches the battery on removal - I put some tape over the battery at the top to form a tab to pull it out so I didn't have this problem, I only charge it a few times a year with several thousand shots in between charges. The electronics are pretty bullet proof, and all the other bits are just like a normal gun, so any competent gunsmith can do seals etc. although Staffordshire Custom Rifles deal with most peoples issues at around half the price of Daystate.

    Try and have a go of one for fit and feel, I'm quite far from you, but if you were over my way I'd be happy to let you try one :thumb:

    I really like mine.
    As for pellets, mine likes JSB Exacts 8.44 and JSB Heavies.
    I see you're in Leeds so you have Redbeck's around the corner who I bought mine from and they are authorized to work on Daystates and the last time I was in there they were quoting £70 for a service. Mine developed a very small leak which they told me was the Harper valve and they replaced the valve on site under warranty.
    At around £2,000 it is a considered purchase so I would see if you can have a go of one before you part with your hard earned money. I tried a Hi-Lite with the carbon bottle that someone at the club had just bought and it felt so well balanced to me that I decided there and then I was going to buy one.
    Enjoy.:)

    I unexpectedly had the chance to buy a MK4IS, thought an electronic rifle would be totally unnecessary but now I have it I think it's great.
    It's a 2013 rifle and is still on the original battery and has never given any trouble for the original owner or myself.

    I'd start with .177 pellets and see how you go, I'd probably stick with .177 pellets as others my be a bit tight and rob power.
    Try all the usual pellets you can actually buy as some you might not get more of the same batch if it likes them.

    I brought mine about six months ago new from The Airgun Centre partly because of the lifetime warranty and partly because of the interest free credit :) after all it’s a considered purchase,I believe new ones come with a 3 year warranty anyway.
    I love it best rifle I’ve owned it felt right straight away it made me sell my Steyr Hunting five and I’ve just ordered a new scope for it ,I use JSB’s 8.44 not because of any testing but that’s my standard pellet and they would take some beating.
    Only advice I would give is make sure that it’s got the latest firmware/circuit board.
    I found this guy very good at explaining the difference’s as he’s had both.
