    Delta Wolf .25 FAC ????

    Has anyone received or getting one of these ? If so any chance of a review with shot count details at full power I.e. 67fpe using JSB Mk11ís at 940fps (this is what the gun is set up at straight from the box) ? Thanks.

    Thanks for the link James. Iíve actually been in contact with the poster of the video to get shot count details and although did try to be helpful couldnít give me exact figures. As you well know Iíve been trying to get this simple piece of information for some time but even though guns are now being shipped to end users and shops Daystate will still not release this detail. I am at a loss to see why as whatís the big secret ? The gun has itís pre set programmes and the high power setting is 940fps using 33.95g JSB (.25) and producing 67fpe. Surely all they need to do is shoot it in their in door range until it drops off the regulator........should take all of 5 minutes as itís not going to produce more than 60 shots and probably a lot less. Yes Iím far from impressed at how Daystate have handled the marketing process.

    I've asked on the Owners club after checking the spec sheet, and your quite right, no info on that, so hopefully in a couple of days someone will respond and I can relay the info if they do.

    "filling the bottle to 230 bar (can go to 240) using the 34g and setting the reg at 175 bar and it produces 65.19fpe at 930fps.....which gives 50 shots. However, the low pressure warning comes on at 150 Bar but an additional 20 shots were available before POI dropped at 100 yards"

    Iíd think twice before buying another Daystate....in fact I doubt i ever will until their customer relations or service ever improves. Iíve been trying to identify parts and info on one of my Daystates that i currently own and I bet I could by illegal drugs easier!!! Not that I ever would.

    As per the Delta Wolf.....hmmmmm, we shall see, I bet shot count on high power would be more like 30-40. 240 bar fill pressure and 180 reg pressure will not give much of a shot count, I would think the air tank will be 480-500cc there about.

    Will it out perform a FX impact/Crown/Dreamline or Wildcat......I very much doubt it!

    I agree with you that Daystateís customer services has plenty of room for improvement. As to identifying parts there are technical drawings available via their website but write to Rachel in sales and see what help she may be able to give .....rachel@daystate.com. The shot count is confirmed by an article in this months Airgun Shooter magazine where 60 were achieved. You seem to be guessing without checking the Delta Wolfís specís....e.g. it does have a 480cc carbon fibre bottle. The thing is your view is understandably coloured by a poor experience whereas Iíve had four Daystateís and all have been faultless so I come from a different standpoint. Although they are moving away from direct customer contact which is a major mistake in my view.

    I have had 6 Daystates over the years and currently still own 2. A Daystate Regal in sun 12 and a Daystate Air Ranger which is FAC.

    They have all been brilliant guns, a few leaks and o-ring failures etc which you will get in any gun in time, but they are no where near as good as my FX in just about, if not every way.

    Again different experiences influence views. Iíve had a number of Fx and had trouble with each. I even had the FX Boss in .30 when it first came out. Had all sorts of trouble and sent it back to ASI (the importers at the time) and they couldnít resolve so they sent it to Sweden and I was without the gun for three months. Therefore I am too coloured by lack of quality and wonít buy another.
