Daystate builds the finest, most advanced air rifles in the world today

Western Shooting Supplies are please to announce that they now stock the Daystate range of air rifles offering probably the highest quality rifle in the UK today.

Daystate develop the big bore sporting air rifle in response to great demand from airgun hunters world wide.

Enter the new Wolverine 303 -

Airgun hunters have for a long time, enjoyed the benefits of using an air rifle to take small game, and for pest control.

Airguns are unique, with low cost of ammunition, the potential for lower power outputs than firearms making them safer within buildings and hazardous locations, and less environmental impact (noise).

Until now, airgun hunters wishing to hunt for medium sized game have had to change to full bore rifles or shotguns.

With the introduction of the Wolverine 303 there is now an airgun alternative !

Featuring a new specially designed .303 airgun bullet, the Wolverine 303 with its 5 shot rotary magazine and muzzle energy of up to 120 ft lbs is more than capable of taking larger game species at sensible airgun ranges.


£1400, rifle only.

 

Huntsman Classic

The Huntsman Classic combines all the elements of a fine, traditional sporting air rifle in a lightweight, compact design that's a joy to shoulder, whether you're out in the hunting field or on the competition range.

Classic English styling complements beautifully-carved, Italian-crafted walnut woodwork which cradles a solidly engineered - yet remarkably lightweight - action. Despite its diminutive size, the Huntsman contains all the features airgun shooters have come to expect from a rifle that carries the famous Daystate logo.

Courtesy of its Harper patent slingshot hammer and valve system, the Huntsman is capable of performance levels which have never hitherto been achievable on a mechanically-driven PCP. This results in a much greater shot-count and even more efficient power delivery, with high- power versions of the Classic capable of a muzzle energies up to a staggering 30 ft/lbs.

Utilising some of the most advanced stock-making techniques available, the Huntsman incorporates a unique marriage of wood and metal, whereby its one-piece steel action is seated far lower than usual in the stock in order to mimic the handling and feel of a traditional hunting rifle.

Nothing has been left to chance on the Huntsman, from its fully-shrouded match-grade barrel to its solid breech block, which comes fitted with Daystate's proven 10-shot rotary magazine. If you prefer not to auto-load, this can instantly be replaced with an optional single-shot tray that allows direct-to-barrel loading. The rifle has been fitted with a pressure gauge to clearly indicate the remaining air status, and re-charging is a quick and easy operation courtesy of the standard snap-fit filling system, neatly concealed behind a pull-off protective cover.

Air Ranger

Designed to be a 'supergun' amongst sporting air rifles, the Air Ranger and its extra-high power stablemate, the Air Ranger 80, bring a whole new dimension to mechanically-driven PCPs. Now you can shoot well beyond your normal limits.

Capable of muzzle energies from 12 ft/lbs, High Power versions can be factory set up to 60-plus ft/lbs in .22 calibre and an awesome 80 ft/lbs in .25 (Air Ranger 80), Daystate is able to present a new breed of highly accurate pneumatic for the hunter; one that delivers extreme power that's unrivalled by any other air rifle, and which allows you to shoot at ranges normally associated with smallbore firearms.

The Air Ranger's 400cc (12 ft/lbs version) or 500cc fixed power source combines with the high efficiency of the Slingshot hammer and valve system to return a vast number of shots per quick-fill charge, making the Air Ranger all the airgun you will ever need.

It sports all the features that have become the hallmark of Daystate's PCP rifles - bolt-action loading, the low-profile 10-shot auto-indexing magazine, an on-board air gauge, a fail-safe rotary safety catch and fully-adjustable trigger that gives a superbly crisp let-off, even at the highest power.

But despite the Air Ranger being a first choice as the ultimate hunting rifle, the designers have been able to created in the Air Ranger much of the beauty and style of the finest sporting air rifles. Dressed in the finest walnut thumbhole stock (crafted in Italy by Minelli), it's adorned by an ambidextrous cheek-piece and classy capped grip - a perfect handle for harnessing the rifle's performance and affording you a level of long-distance accuracy that takes your breath away.

Airguns and the law

Although air weapons, with very few exceptions as outlined above, are not required to be kept on a firearm certificate, they are still classed as firearms and fall under the control of the firearms legislation.

As an airgun shooter, you must make sure that you know the law and keep within it. If you don't, you could find yourself in court facing charges with sanctions ranging from heavy fines right up to life imprisonment. The following is a list of the laws by which you must abide and you might be surprised at just how long it is:

• It is an offence to sell or make a gift of an air weapon to a person under eighteen years of age.

• It is an offence for anyone under eighteen to carry an air weapon unless - they are under the supervision of a person aged twenty one or more or they are on private land and have permission from the occupier or they are shooting as a member of an approved club or they are shooting at a shooting gallery for miniature rifles.

• It is an offence for a person under eighteen shooting unsupervised on private land to allow any pellets to cross the boundaries of the property.

• It is an offence for any person, regardless of age, to be in possession of an air weapon in a public place without a reasonable excuse. A reasonable excuse might be carrying a gun to and from a target shooting club or to and from land on which you have permission to shoot. It would also include taking a gun to and from a gunsmith for repair or service or taking a new gun home from the dealer.

• It is an offence to trespass with an air weapon, be that in a building or on land.

• It is an offence to have an air weapon if you are a person prohibited from possessing a firearm by section 21 of the 1968 Act. This section prohibits anyone who has been sentenced to a custodial sentence of between three months and three years from possessing an air weapon or other firearm for five years from the date of release. Anyone sentenced to three years or more is prohibited for life.

• It is an offence to fire your gun within fifty feet (fifteen metres) of the centre of a public road in such a way as to endanger or impede any road user.

• It is an offence to shoot protected wild birds or animals. When live quarry shooting, it is your responsibility to make sure that you only shoot legal quarry.

• It is an offence to shoot pet animals. Besides being abhorrent to most people, this is, above all others, the offence that gives all air weapon shooters a bad name.

• It is an offence to have an air weapon with intent to damage property.

• It is an offence to have an air weapon with intent to endanger life.

This may seem a long and onerous list, but it is all no more than common sense. If you use your gun safely and responsibly, you will be in no danger of committing an offence.

In Conclusion

You should always remember that airguns are capable of inflicting severe injuries and even of killing people. Irresponsible owners have given airgun shooters a bad name by breaking windows, shooting pets and protected wild birds and even sniping at people. You can do your bit to help change this perception by using your gun in a way that demonstrates that air weapon shooters are, in the main, responsible people who pose no threat to anyone. Always follow the guidelines set out in this information.
