Daystate Huntsman Revere

Recommended Posts

As you say, it is gorgeous and as I'm a traditionalist, it has that nice clean classic look 😀 What is the RRP ?

Still keeping the **** sling shot hammer system, shot count is very low in FAC and it’s still over rated , overpriced , that’s daystate for you

It does look nice and I'm guessing the low shot count keeps the weight down making the gun handle better, how many rabbits can one person carry?

Oh great! Just got my huntsman and really like it. I happened to say that the only improvement I would like is a side lever. Now this! ********.

I'd want a stock upgrade so it would be more than that, so it's a pass from me 😏

How does that fit in with any airgun design and manufacture ?

So by you thinking and saying that, should every airgun be a single shot only ?

Just saying like 😉

Not at all,  Villaman said the shot count is low in Fac but its enough for a hunting session,  I shoot an R10 and R7 so have plenty of air, but this Daystate is going to be lighter.

Sorry, being picky tonight 😊 so don't take this the wrong way....

Villaman didn't say it's enough for a hunting session, so you must be saying it,,,, or am I reading that wrong ? Just don't understand why you'd say "how many rabbits can one person carry" in the context of Villa man's post and this gun's shot count ? Or any gun's shot count for that matter 🤭

Anyway, it does look nice and, but for the price, would make a lovely companion for my HW100, BSA Ultra and BSA S10 👍

I wanted to come on here and lambaste Daystate for yet another absurd, ugly and unnecessary model created purely for the sake of driving sales. But I can't. Bother.

Aren't you just 🤣🤣 

shot count is very low in FAC ⬅️ that's what Villaman said, so why is the shot count low? It's a hunting rifle surely and yes I said how many rabbits can one person carry, I  think forty shots for a hunting rifle is plenty if its fac.

Not in sub twelve though if you like to plink as well.

Personally  my minimum shot count is 30 from any pcp .

I had one of my guns doing about 22 shots and it was a bit limiting .

Couple of zero checkers at the start of a session.say  10 - 12 hunting shots and your starting to watch your air gauge and conserve the few remaining pellets you have wondering about the drop off at 50 plus yards..

I added a longer air tube  and got the shot count up to 30+  (3 mags worth ) and now im happy and can take the gun on a nice half day hunt .

Thank you for the explanation 😊

In the spec it does state that in sub 12 it can do 160 shots in .22 and 140 in .177, which is quite a high figure in comparison to other similar air rifles.

Can't help but feel Daystate are clutching at straws with this one. Yes it looks kind of nice with a side lever. It needs a stock which has a comb riser.

The FAC model in .22 gives a relatively low number of shots (30) so it's a nice from me but a "not interested and won't buy" at the same time.

I love my .177 bolt action regal in sub 12 ft lbs which is a keeper. Why would anyone buy a Revere?

A gorgeous looking rifle, but , for what I use one for , I would be scared of marking the thing. And be totally gutted if I did scratch it.

My regulated Scorpion se , will do me nicely .
