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.

    I will start this review by saying ive had this rifle for a fair amount of time now, not sure exactly how long but its definitely been over 1 year.

    My Airwolf Tactical or (AWT for short) was originally 22 cal, for the best part of a year before i packed it up and sent it off to daystate for a calibre conversion.

    Now 20 cal in current form, i have some history with daystate rifles and over the years ive owned a fair few, before the airwolf I had a Mk4is in 177 cal which i had many good trips out (hunting) with the Mk4is, it never missed a beat!

    The AWT is basically a mk4is with a bottle (more shots) allot more infact, before the rifle was converted it would produce over 400 shots and now in 20 calibre it will do over 380 shots.

    Handling is perfect for me, it actually fits me better than my old mk4, not really sure why this is bit everything just feels right, very well balanced and it doesnt actually feel as heavy as it is on paper, i actually preferred after taking out my rapid one night and then the wolf the night after i deffiantly warmed more towards the AWT, i found it alot more easyier to use and i think this is probably due to the fact that the rifle fits me a fair bit better.

    The tactical stock is good and bad, shape wise, fit, balance inc the action all feels perfect, the rubberised stock is actually wood with rubber coating, i find it very comfy, warm to touch all the time including the coldest days which is really nice thing, its also very grippy and doesnt loose any real advantages in this area when it is wet, it does have one major draw back, and that is durability, if you happen to give it a good knock whislt out you are certain to chip/damage the rubber finish! This reveals the plain beech underneath, i have one slight blemish and the rifle gets worked hard so maybe the finish isnt as flimsy as i make out but its not bombproof either, the other downside is its not near as easy to repair ad say if you bumped a walnut stock, keeping in mind that this is a pure tool in my eyes and looks dont really play and real part then i over look the battle scars aslong as the rifle is performing how it should.

    Over all build quality (BQ) is really very good, nothing really stands out as flimsy in my mind everything is made to a high quality and to last, mine is fitted with Rowan trigger and a Huggett so these have basically made me forget about the standard factory fitted parts (fac shroud +trigger) that come fitted, not that there is anything wrong with these but the upgrades are well "upgrades and are a significant improvement over the factory standard parts.

    Ive not had any problems so far, this is including the time before the conversion (22) and after now 20 cal, and ive had the AWT out in in alkinds of weather including very heavy rain, once it was covered in thick mud and soaking wet but i didnt experience any problems, same with my Mk4is, the electronics have been" bang on" and never missed a beat, the only thing that i forget to do sometimes is recharge the battery once a month sometimes.

    The trigger, acurracy is phenomenal, before and after the conversion, same goes for my old Mk4is to, my AWT is a one hole machine and im hitting paintball sized targets at 70Y with ease (JSB) magazines are fine ive never had a problem with them they work and thats what you want, i maybe lucky but after owning maybe 8,9 daystate made rifles over the years i cant even remember a single jam, and daystate have been improving them gradually over the years.

    This is now my main rifle in that i mean it has basically seen off alot of other airguns ive owned! I tend to gravitate to one pcp and have found from hunting and extensive trips out that nothing can really live with my wolf, its pin point, solid and well balanced and i hardly ever have to fill it with air because it is so consistant, its a tool a great alrounder!

    I have just treated it to a new scope (well deserved) AK Lightstream, i will pop a few pics up here once i get the scope on it and out in the field.

    Id fully recommend a Daystate Airwolf Tactical to anyone it really is an excellent alrounder in my eyes, just as useful on the range slinging lead aswell as in the field controlling vermin there is nothing this rifle isnt capable of!
