    Daystate airwolf mvt servicing prices

    I have a daystate airwolf mvt which I have had from new, and today has been the first day I have had on the range with no wind at all and my grouping was terrible and one minute it was shooting to left and then to the right,I have been putting this down to the wind before now. I have had this trouble before when I first bought the rifle, daystate put the wrong grub screws in which hold the barrel, they sent the correct ones and I fitted them, I don't want to start messing around with the rifle so I was thinking of sending it back to daystate for a service and ask them to check the barrel and grouping, but to be honest I am skint and I was wondering what it will cost, time it takes and can I drop the rifle off as I have had a lot of problems recently with items going missing in the post.
    Thanks Jim

    MVT

    Hi Jim, you live quite close to me, I had an MVT, it was awesome. If I was worried about my Daystate I'd call Dave at Staffordshire Custom Rifles. Dave is a bit of a genius with air rifles. He is also as reasonable cost wise as you will find, his service is better than excellent and he tells the truth. Dave used to be at Daystate back in the day and knows them as well, if not better than most. Recently I have heard service costs for Daystates going through the roof price wise, I don't know for certain if this is true.

    Is this a common occurrence with the Wolf then???? A lad at the range I use has this issue and has asked me to service his rifle.But I advised him to go to Daystate as I had heard they fit the newer circuit boards.Thing is his only acts up when the pressure is down a bit,not when the the tank has just been refilledI put this down to the regulator but not too sure that it is not the circuit board or a dodgy setting.

    I don't honestly know, I have read that when daystate have serviced other people's rifle that they fit the latest board, so I was thinking that was the way to go, I will have to find the funds from somewhere

    I had the very same problem with my Air Ranger, luckily it was within the warranty period but after three trips to the factory it still came back the same. They realigned the barrel and ended up replacing it but it was still rubbish so in the end I had it swapped from .20 to .177 by a great guy on here.
    So he told me there is a very specific way and sequence to aligning the barrel on them and if not done correctly you will be shaving the pellets as they enter the breech.
    For a change from left to right handed and the caliber swap plus service was less than 100 but that was last year. Very nice guy and excellent at his job.

    Hi Jim, Dave can do everything and anything with regard to most guns. He has a Daystate history and was up until recently the only person who was allowed to do Daystate warranty work (that may still actually be the case). He also tends to do the stuff they can't sort out for whatever reason. He can fit the circuit boards without an issue.

    I had this with my FAC Mvt.After much fiddling n checking I found that the stock fixing bit that was attached to the mvt was loose. Ya know the bit that the one n only massive stock bolt screws into.

    Airwolf MVT doesn't have a reg as such. The pressure in the bottle is whats at the firing valve, anything between 90 and 200 bar. The power is governed electronically.

    Jim I doubt that daystate would change the circuit board they just update the software in the eprom or pic chip. My MVT was bought second hand but the original owner had sent it back to daystate and they updated the software in early 2011. Mine is very accurate with Jsb exacts and H&N FTT's. Velocity spread is very low better than any other rifle I have had. If your fps spread is high you might try cleaning the chrono sensors in the shroud

    Hi Jim

    If your still getting poor groups and its not the wind, and you have cleaned the barrel, try the single shot tray to see if it improves the groups. If the magazine is aligned badly it will shave the pellets as they enter the breech. I have a friend who uses a rowan single shot tray for FT and he swears it is far more accurate than with the mag. A new board or software update will not improve accuracy or grouping.

    regards

    Another vote for a single shot tray, I like the Westy steppd tray in matching black. The magazine is not Daystate's best feature.
