    Daystate Huntsman Revere sidelever .177

    Thinking of dipping my toe in The PCP Arena, with a purchase of the above.
    Budget is around 1200.
    Are there any negatives, or could I do better ?
    There's a new Safari edition just launched, but I'm not overkeen on the Stock.
    Many thanks in advance of comments.

    I've had one since the beginning of the year and its sublime to shoot and super accurate.
    Personally there isn't much if anything at fault with the rifle since I got one,it's comfortable to shoulder And the build quality is excellent.

    I'm getting around 140 shots from a 250bar fill (.177)
    I really liked the new style 13 shot gated magazines but sadly spare ones are expensive

    To be fair,I find them to be excellent and robust, they are all metal so no plastic to wear away.
    Unlike a few equally expensive guns they don't jam and they feed all 13 pellets without the need to put one pellet less into the mag.

    I've heard a few horror stories about the latest and greatest super guns that have cheap magazines that don't feed correctly or line up.

    A lot will depend on what your going to use the gun for and how you will use it?

    For this type of gun, these are probably one, if not the, best in class

    I have had mine about 8 years,mine is in .20.
    I use it both on the range and hunting,I did have one issue with it leaking around the filler connection but an easy fix.
    I have it running at 11.4 with H&N ftt 11.42 works for me.

    Charging system is simular to what was on my sumatra which i found not so good as a snap on type. The mag looks like it sits high when loaded so you need higher mounts maybe? Not my cup of tea and definately not at 1200!
