Introducing the Daystate Wolverine Forester.
The next generation of Daystate Wolverine PCPs are now here, and among them is the Daystate Wolverine Forester in a striking green laminate, very similar to the Pulsar green laminate. The Wolverine 2 series are stamping their presence within the air gun fraternity with the wide range on offer and multiple calibres as well.
The Daystate Wolverine R C Type.
The traditional Wolverine R C type has been available in Walnut up until recently. At the time of writing this I have yet to see one, though I have sold several Wolverine C Type 12 Fpe PCPs in the past (as below), this addition of a Forest Laminate will breath new life into this stalwart air rifle.
The Daystate Wolverine R B Type.
This Wolverine is very similar to the Wolverine R HiLite with the only difference being the HiLite has a 480cc carbon wrapped bottle. The Wolverine R B Type has the choice of the 400 or 500cc air reservoir but apart from that, these two are identical in length and both have the same barrel. Weight is different by the use of the HiLite air reservoir.
In calibres, the Wolverine R B Type offers .177, .22 and .25 cal only. If you want the .303 cal then you will need to buy the Wolverine R HP HiLite as that PCP has the extra power needed for that heavy pellet. Talking pellets, this PCP air rifle can deliver 600 shots in 12 Fpe or 150 shots in 30 Fpe, using .22 calibre. We carry Daystate Emperor .303 pellets as well as the smaller calibres in stock, all of them work very well in these air rifles.
The Daystate Wolverine R HiLite.
The third Wolverine in this line up uses a 480cc HiLite air reservoir exclusively and boasts 100 shots in .25 calibre, which by any standard is a great shot count. Due to the 480cc cylinder being marginally smaller than the optional 500cc cylinder of the R B Type Wolverine, shot count is slightly less at 130 shots at 30 Fpe in .22 cal.
Like the predecessor, the Wolverine R HiLite is only available in .177, .22 and .25 calibres.
The Wolverine R HP HiLite.
This Wolverine is easily identified due to the use of a longer barrel required to step up the power for the .303 pellets and other calibres. Power levels are up in all 4 calibres, with .177 now delivering 30 Fpe, .22 at 45 Fpe, .25 at 50 Fpe and the big daddy 303 at 60 Fpe with a shot count of 55 shots.
The aesthetics closely resemble that of the Daystate Red Wolf and come in less costly which should appeal to those with a tight budget. The stocks are ambidextrous and the side lever can be ordered on the left side for you ‘lefties’ out there. Their magazines are still magnetically locked and come in 10 shot with the exception of the .303 that comes in 5 shot mags. Essentially, all 4 Wolverine PCP air rifle models use many of the same components that aid in controlling the price made possible by the economies of scale in production.
Summary of the Wolverine PCP air rifles.
In my opinion, the Daystate Wolverine falls midway between the budget priced Huntsman and the much appraised Red Wolf series. This fact alone should see the lions share of the market buying Wolverines as there is little to pick in accuracy when up against the Red Wolf. Both models have exceptional finishes in laminates and that makes coming to a decision of which one to purchase, being dictated only by cost.
When looking at buying a Daystate (or any other air rifle), you are best asking us to give you a package price that includes scope, mounts, air compressor, fittings, gun slip, cleaning kit and 1000 pellets. The discount will make it worth it.
If you do not like electronics like we have in the Red Wolf then the Wolverine is your obvious choice. These PCPs are now fitted with the Huma regulator that can be adjusted to suit your shooting style or to accomodate a specific pellet. What-ever the choice, the Wolverine will not embarrass you in competition, even up against the Red Wolf. With the Wolverine being a Daystate, we provide you with a comprehensive Pellet Test Sheets prior to delivery to fine tune anything that becomes apparent.
