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.

The Air Wolf MCT... the ultimate in high-tech hunting air rifles that features the very latest in on-board refinements to make it easier than ever to achieve great shooting results.
This latest version of Daystate's highly popular hunting and Hunter Field Target competition rifle now contains significant upgrades on former Air Wolf models. It includes Daystate's patented Map Compensated Technology (MCT) as well as a new LCD information screen to keep you informed on the exact status of your rifle. Battery power for the electrical system is delivered courtesy of a Ni-MH (Nickel-metal Hydride) rechargeable battery that provides enough power for thousands of shots. (Battery charger supplied.)
Internally, the Air Wolf MCT now features a new Harper Patent valve system for increased efficiency as well as a market-leading shot capacity. This also provides the potential for high power if required. Combined with the full length, sound-moderating barrel shroud, the patented electronic system makes the Air Wolf MCT a near-silent rifle to shoot in the field. Supplied as standard in Carbine length - complete with a threaded adaptor to suit Daystate's Airstream IV carbon fibre Reflex silencer - the Air Wolf is also available in a full-length Rifle model, as well as a high-power version.
The ambidextrous thumbhole stock fitted to the Air Wolf is made in Italy by world renowned stockmaker, Minelli, and incorporates only the finest, selected Turkish walnut.
Also available in some countries is the Air Wolf MVT model. This features an on-board chronoscope and is programmed to allow the shooter to dial in the exact velocity required (upwards from 400 feet per second), adding another dimension of adjustability when required.

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.
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.
