A Daystate Red Wolf standard Walnut (45fpe).
I will write up a bit of a review after I shoot it for a while but right now I can say it is stupid accurate and beautiful.

This is 40 shots at 90meters in a 6-9 km/h right to left wind and light snow. Those are 1 inch squares on the target. The Flyers were likely me and the wind gusting, definitely not the rifle.

1st sentence of the thread.

"A Daystate Red Wolf standard Walnut (45fpe)."

I had assumed a .25 calibre, but not sure. Could be a .22 cal.
Looks like a decent group to me, especially for the conditions.

Yes in 22. I had some options come due as the company I work for was bought so they had to pay them out. Therefore it was this or a crown continuum. But after research I felt I was more of a pick a power guy not a tinker to find the right setting and power kind of guy and the Red Wolf won out. I am glad I went this route, it is awesome.

Shoots 18 grain JSB at approx 873, 930 and 987. 25 g JSB redesigns at 750ish , 835 and 899. You can shoot 18 grain at low power for a looong time before refill.

Nice rifle , one day I hope to get my hands on a Daystate, although I think I’d go the Wolverine R in .25 . That’s some mighty fine shooting.

I still have to say as nice as this is the HW100 cocks, cycles and has a trigger pull on par with this. That says a lot about the HW100. It is just low on power and shot count in .22 when you do a head to head comparison. Though, if you watch YouTube "Racknload" he just did a review of a custom HW100 bottle conversion. I think you could push the power and shot count with that one.

I had wanted a Huntsman for a long time but after seeing a few reviews on GTA for this, I was sold.

It's just a question of priorities... every month you keep on driving that paid-off vehicle, that's $400-$500 available for something else... bring your lunch to work, $10/day....

Nice rifle!

Went with the .22 as Daystate upped the power this year to 45 fpe in the shorter barred version(17" I believe) I had a FX Streamline in .25 but rarely shot it. Mostly bought for a large varmit problem I had when I lived on a smaller property with more neighbours. I have moved so I can use a more effective rifle if that problem occurs again. I decided to sell the FX after I researched this and ordered it. This is almost as powerful (5fpe less), but you can also plink all day with it with few refills on cheap pellets. Between this and my HW100 in .177 I am set. Well, I still have my HW98 in .22., that is never going to leave.

Few things on first impressions about the RW. It is a bit heavier,7.5lbs 9.5 lbs scoped. I have a scope from my .308 rifle on it and it is quite heavy so could probably drop close to a pound off it with a newer scope. I also find the pistol grip a bit chunky. It is comfortable enough but due to it housing the battery it is a bit large. I think Daystate could have did the battery storage set up a bit better or use a smaller battery. Maybe house the battery in the stock behind the butt pad and have a plug in port to charge it, like most modern electrical components. The rifle does not come in a case but a regular Daystate cardboard box. Most air rifles of this price range, or even less, come in cases. They also only supply 1 magazine. I think for the price you pay a case and second mag should be standard. So if anybody purchases one of these you should make that known to Daystate, I am. Do I regret my purchase, no I would buy again. I think it is gorgeous and it is definitely accurate. It is definitely one of, if not the top of the food chain in pcp's.
