Daystate Wolverine 2 C Type
The Daystate Wolverine 2 C Type has been developed over an unprecedented seven-year program, the Wolverine 2 was first launched in 2012 as a unique 303 calibre air rifle with the 12 and 30-pound versions being launched a year later. Three years on Daystate, as is their regular practice, have ‘refreshed’ the design and an updated Wolverine 2 2 was shown to the trade for the first time at the January 2017 Shot show in Las Vegas alongside the Saxon Limited Edition. Almost every part of the rifle has seen some small and subtle improvements over what has already proven to be a successful and reliable design. A new core valve assembly taken from the Pulsar and Renegade, which improves airflow for a much more significant shot count as well as making the rifle easier to service. Changes to the breech block design give a more family look - quite like the design used on the highly popular Daystate Pulsar. An entirely new stock from stock maestro Gary Canes’ Techwood Design studio, undoubtedly the most famous air gun stock designer in the world - being the chief architect here, with some further input from the chief designer of Minelli. While they were about it the 3D butt pad used on the Pulsar was incorporated to add a new level of adjust-ability.
The latest Wolverine 2 is slightly shorter than the original version, and the centre of gravity moved rearwards for a better balance. Here, Daystate is making an already good design better as well as easier to shoot. Improvements incorporated into the latest batches of the match-grade German Walther barrel are included in the new rifle, with Daystates’ Tony Belas joking that barrel costs of their high-end rifles are getting close to the total manufacturing cost of some of the more eastern air gun manufacturers. Accuracy on a Daystate gun is always a given, but the Company are keen to build on this wherever possible.
In all a superb upgrade to a gun that was already a delight to shoot.
The "C" Type is the 12-foot pounds cylinder version of the Daystate Wolverine2 available in .177 and .22 calibres.
Distinctive on the new version is the fore-end piece, made from high-performance PA66 (ballistic) polyester. The fore end also incorporates a 23mm Picatinny rail for accessories. The rifle is pictured with an optional tactical bipod and sling swivel which are also available from Daystate.
The Daystate Wolverine 2 C type features a (200cc) aluminium air tube.
