    Hi all / anyone owned a Daystate before? They seem pretty expensive! Is the build quality / accuracy up there with AA/BSA or better?
    In particular, can anyone comment on the X2 Sports?
    thanks gents

    having had a few daystates i would not recomment them to any one poor regulators breech scope mounting poor usually have to shim most scopes out and had cross over problems with them in the past spend more time at the factory getting repaired than getting used terribly expensive they need that expense to cover the overheads for repair and postage to and from the factory if you are thinking of getting a x2 sport i would rather have a bsa or airarms400

    having owned most pcp on the market i allways seem to go full circle and end up with a rapid at the moment i own a 177 s type which is the best air rifle i have had why not try getting a new 2007 mk1 rapid 177 dont think you would regret it

    Thanks TC

    Funny you should say that, I've just been reading an article on the new RapidMK1 in the July issue of Airgun World / seems well rated. What's the overall Theoben build quality like? And again you rate 177 LoL!

    in airgun world/ airgunner every rifle gets over 90% dont belive what they say............but rapids do have excellent build quality,accuracy and consistency even if they are a little costly
