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.
As the first shooting event of the year, the British shooting show is the eagerly awaited start to the air gunners shooting season with most – if not all gun companies exhibiting.
Daystate will be there, and launching its Big Secret – a new rifle for 2016.
Want to see it first? – then we will see you at the British Shooting Show 12-14 February at Stoneleigh Park Coventry.

Daystate were visited by Hard Air Magazine supremo Steven Archer earlier this year, here is his report on the visit.
Daystate displayed at the annual Tackle and Gun (trade) show this month, alongside its sister companies Brocock and MTC optics.
A big hit was the forthcoming Pulsar Synthetic (shown above). Look out for our new Pulsar – in the shops now!
This year the company had a superb new stand to show off some great new products, including the new synthetic stock version of the Pulsar.
Priced at £1599, the new version hits the shops later next month.
Daystate also displayed some new corporate clothing, watch this space for pics and more details.
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.
This is Gareth Egarr, our newest member of the admin team at the Daystate owners club, seen here helping out at the Emmett & Stone open day.
Gareth became an instant admirer of the Pulsar!
Our man in South Africa, Wyan Schoonwinkel, has returned from the World Field Target Championships in beautiful Lithuania.
Wyan was shooting Pulsar No. 10 – one of the early build-up rifles. Wyan reports that the rifle was comfortable, consistent and very easy to shoot and he preferred it over his Grand Prix rifle. Grouping wise he was able to get 5 shots into a 5p circle at 50 metres. The Pulsar stock has been developed as a hunting rifle, so for FT Wyan added a knee support and butt hook and he will be developing these features on the rifle with Daystates help over the coming months.
If you are is SA keep a look out for Wyan and ask to have a go!
Over the past few months, Daystate has been hard at work quietly developing a new pellet in conjunction with the German pellet manufacturer H&N. H&N produce many of the world’s best pellets and have many world championship match wins to their credit. The new Pellet is based on the popular H&N Field Target Trophy, but the pellets have been specially selected to suit the Daystate special Walther barrels.
Branded under the Rangemaster label the new pellets are titled the Kaiser series and come in screw-top tins of 500.
Prices are as follows:
The Kaiser Series pellets are available in all good gun shops.
Daystate will be once again exhibiting at the airgun extravaganza that is the Midland Game fair at Weston Park on 19 & 20th of September.
This show is a must visit for any serious air gunner and if you only do the one game fair, this is the one to do!
This year for the first time, Daystate will be exhibiting alongside its two sister companies, Brocock and MTC Optics. Expect to see new products on display from all three!
Crowds around the airgun expo which is well attended by all major airgun companies
Daystate launched the Wolverine Forester last year, here it is pictured on the ‘have a go’ range.
Daystate all-black synthetic stocked version of the pulsar nears completion.
Shown on test in Cumbria by Daystates chief tester Jerry Moss, the new version of this amazing rifle is shown fitted with a MTC MambaLite scope.
First delivery's are due at the end of September.
The Pulsar Synthetic uses a stock made from ballistic nylon – This top-of-the-range material is virtually unbreakable in normal use and is a favourite of the military - it is the same material used in Glock pistol frames.
The Pulsar synthetic has another surprise to it, as after extensive trials and the completion of the initial handmade limited edition Oro Series (OS), the synthetic come in at a price point £300 lower. The Synthetic version even comes with its own snug fitting hard case and has the same features as the OS - but without the gold highlights or high grade walnut stock.
Daystate test Pulsar rifles "upside down" to allow the engineers to adjust the laser built into every Pulsar. Every rifle is extensively tested for velocity and grouping on Daystate new test range.
Rifles are calibrated on each of the pulsars 3 power settings and the results recorded . This means that data can be recalled for any given rifle and as the Pulsar is digital, the results duplicated exactly. Note the pulsarsâ€™ laser shining on the target!
Daystate announces its entry into the airgun air compressor market with the introduction of a compact 230 volt electronic air compressor, suitable to charge air tanks up to 300bar.
The Daystate compressor contains a sophisticated air filtration system that delivers breathing quality air quietly and at speed; and is capable of filling a 10 litre bottle from empty in 20 minutes and can top up from 150 bar in under 10 minutes, making it ideal for an independent shooter, club or shop.
Weighing under 40 kg the new unit is portable, self-contained and comes with a year’s warranty.
Price might be one of its most impressive features though, as in a market where this type of compressor usually costs £2,500; the Daystate compressor costs only £1,799.

Since the company moved into its new factory.
My, how time flies!.
For the delay to the new Pulsar Oro Series.
Production is underway after a few hold-ups with some parts arriving later than expected and one key part needing re-making. The delays have put us about 3 weeks behind schedule. This time has not been wasted allowing further testing and additional software refinements being adopted.
The first gun was completed today (Friday 10th April) with the very first production rifles starting to leave Tuesday or Wednesday (14th-15th April). It will take us a little time to catch up, so your continued patience is very much appreciated.
The revised program is as follows:
We will continue to update you here and on the Daystate owners club of the latest news as it happens.
