What was probably the first proper Hunter Field target event in Italy took place last weekend and it was sponsored by Daystate!
Taking place at Lazzate near Milan, the event was organised by Daystates Italian importer Armeria Ratti and the Lombardia Field Target Club.
Attending was popular TV journalist Davide Mengacci who chose to shoot his customised Daystate MK4 in the match (see picture).
The match winner walked away with a Huntsman Regal prize donated by Daystates Stefano Gervasoni and Elisabeth Ratti from Armeria Ratti

Daystate's General Manager Joff Haigh is getting the hang of this HFT thing, with a score of 55 x 60 at the weekend.
That was enough to win him first place in the 4th round of the Loughborough Open Championship.
Seen here demonstrating his new Daystate Griffin, and er, his watch.
It will take place close to Milan, with the partnership of our Italian dealer, Armeria Ratti, and a well known Italian TV anchorman, Mr. Davide Mengacci (pictured below).
On 16th October, at the “Lombardia Field Target” FT shooting range, there will be a range of Daystate air rifles available for test and a HFT competition, which will be the first HFT event in Italy. A Daystate Huntsman .177 will be given as prize to a lucky shooter from Daystate Ltd!
This will be possible thanks to the important help of Lombardia Field Target Association and its President, Mr. Matteo Landenna, Daystate Ltd and Armeria Ratti
The Tsar continues Daystates rich legacy of match-winning Field Target rifle - for shooters who compete at the highest national and international levels.
Some sports demand an uncompromising approach for success. The new Tsar has been designed and built without compromise to perform in the high standards required on today's outdoor target competition circuit - a sport where less than the width of a pellet at 50 metres can make the difference between bringing home the silverware - or not.
Regulated for optimal 12-foot pound performance and shot to shot consistency, the Tsar has been developed to be a trophy winner from the start.
Launch of the Tsar at the Tackle & Gun Trade Fair

The Griffin is Daystate’s first fully mechanical target rifle for a number of years. The original Griffin SE responds to popular demand for a more target focused version of our Regal, which can also be used in the field with its 10 shot magazine. Now the production version uses lessons learned for the SE to produce an equally stunning looking rifle but with some useful enhancements such as a quieter Huggett moderator as standard and a quick adjustable palm rest.
Price is £1,500.00* From your local Daystate dealer.

Simon from Daystate attended the Braces of Bristol open day Saturday 2nd July 2016. This was Braces third successive annual day where members of the public may attend their exclusive grounds free of charge and try an array of rifles and shotguns provided by Braces.
Daystate took the opportunity to attend with an array of their own rifles and where the only manufacturer to do so, consequently exclusivity. It was also the first public outing for the production Renegade giving the public an opportunity to shoot, and of which drew a lot of attention.
Braces provided Daystate with their own fully covered 75 yd static freshly painted range ensuring a captive audience. All rifles performed admirably, albeit the public focus was on the Renegade as was expected. One gentleman travelled over 5 hours round trip just to shoot the Renegade before placing his order.
Steve Youngs is a good shot and enjoys a challenge, so when he elected to take part in Hunter Field Target (HFT) he decided to use his trusty .22 Daystate Air Ranger. Now these competitions are hard enough, but at sub 12 foot pounds a .22 calibre has twice the drop of a .177 so it takes a brave and skilled hand to drive it.
Steve is such a shooter and came a credible 2nd place in this year’s World Hunter Field Target competition; only narrowly missing a first due to a technical issue.

It may share a resemblance to Daystate's beautifully styled Pulsar flagship precharged pneumatic. but the all-new Renegade is distinguishable by a secret hidden deep within its synthetic stock: its precharged action is mechanically-driven!
In place of an electronic GCU [Gun Control Unit] and map-compensated firing cycle, the heart of the Renegade beats around the mechanical Harper-patented Slngshot Hammer system. as fitted to its popular Wolverine and Regal siblings. The result is an all-new rifle that shares many of the features equipped on the revolutionary Pulsar, but without all the computerised complexity and expense.
Yet the Renegade is itself not devoid of ground-breaking features, not least it's Hybrid Trigger Unit [HTU). Historically, the bullpup design has delivered limitations with the trigger release due to the more forward location requiring inefficient levers that are detrimental to a good feel. With the electronic Pulsar, this problem was overcome. And Daystate has now extended its know-how to develop a hybrid electronic/mechanical trigger for the Renegade - the first system of its kind to be seen on a high-powered PCP air rifle, and marking an end to the age-old problem of a poor trigger let-off for mechanically-dnven bullpups.
Daystate Renegade - Launched at the British Shooting Show
Powered by a single, readily available PP3 type 9-volt battery, the HTU simply transfers the trigger's movement via a wire to a small solenoid which, instantaneously, releases the normally-functioning sears toward the rear of the Renegade's action. In essence, it's an electronic, fly-by-wire system that brings the best of both worlds to the bullpup configuration.
By popular demand all Wolverine models are now available in .25 calibre.
When FAC rated the .25 calibre Wolverine produces power at a healthy 50 foot pounds muzzle energy and depending on the pellet used capable of muzzle velocities of up to 1000 fps. All in a standard length package and while retaining the built in moderator standard on Wolverine models.

The Daystate Regal XL has just won an award by the popular online airgun magazine Hard Air Magazine (HAM).
The USA based magazine gives gold bronze and silver awards based on Quality, Usability, Value and Performance of the products they test. In the case of the Daystate Huntsman Regal, the rifle achieved a Gold award.
The online editor of HAM is Steven Archer, who is originally from the UK, Steven said in the review:“The Daystate Regal XL air rifle is a thing of beauty and quality! The .22 caliber gun we tested has a great trigger, outstanding ergonomics and feel, combined with great accuracy and the power required for successful small game hunting.”

Every Pulsar is tested after completion for at least an extra 200 shots, but the tester decided to stretch things, and produced this 300 shot group from a single charge!
Group was at 25 metres and used the new Rangemaster Keiser pellets.
An airgun Extreme Bench Rest championship has taken place in Lebanon on the 3rd June.
With over 150 shooters from across the Country competing over 50m and 75m the results were as follows:
75m - 1st Place: Ahmad Daouk with Daystate Airwolf .22(pictured)
50m - 1st Place: Mr Dori Mouzannar with Daystate Airwolf .22
Well done to Ahmad and Dori from all at Daystate for some excellent shooting!
303 long range hot’s up!.
This time from a Wolverine 303 shooter in Italy. Giuseppe Scaglione shot an officially judged 18 mm group at a 100m on an open air range.
Great shooting Giuseppe!
Take a look at this 5-shot 110 yard group - courtesy of Ingrid van Gemert from the Netherlands!
Ingrid shoots in a 100 metre (110 yards) competition at her local club and last week shot a 12 mm group with her Wolverine 303. The score was 55 points, the highest ever achieved with a big bore rifle.
Stunning shooting Ingrid!
