    Daystate Air Ranger .25 50 fpe Arrives On Monday

    Post by StubExt on Thu Oct 13, 2011 8:33 pm

    I took the plunge and have the Air Ranger and another Hawke Sidewinder Tactical 6.5-20 scope (my third) coming on Monday. I wrestled with an Air Wolf MCT for a while but decided I would try the Air Ranger after hearing one horror story with the electronics. I have a Huggett shroud being put on it that supposedly makes it more quiet than my Marauder .25 which is pretty quiet. The 50 fpe get 40 full power shots.

    I also picked up a box of solid .25 36 grain Daystate "pellets" to try in my Condor with the modded valve.

    What are some of the horror stories you've heard? Advantages of this one of the other (Wolf) you'd considered?

    I like the scope too. That would be perfect for that one and just the right pricing too. I couldn't agree more. I've got a shelf full of scopes I made the common mistakes in getting (for specific purposes that didn't work out like I thought that they would).

    Reason I ask is that these two are on my get list. Or if I *can't* ever get them, my dream list, if you will. Sort of like fantasy football (too bad I'm not a sports fan)

    BTW: How much did the bullets run you?

    Elaborate a little on this?

    I am curious to what length pellets the Daystate platform can take.

    On the Air Wolf I only heard of one guy who had problems with the electronics and had to send it is for a new board. Most folks by far have no issues. The Air Ranger is considered the high powered hunter and the Air Wolf is the high tech regulated high shot count gun but maxes out at less power for say .25 than the Ranger. The Air Wolf is $400 more than the Air Ranger. The AR comes with a magazine and a single feed tray. The tray is for Predators and really long pellets as well. The Air Ranger 80 fpe is built for solid slugs Daystate sells as well as std pellets. The Air Ranger .25 50 fpe I got is good for 40 full power shots.

    I love the 1/2 mil dot 20x etched glass reticles on the Hawke Sidewinder Tacticals. It rivals my Nightforce NSX scope costing 3x more. It is heavy but actually an ounce lighter than my Nightforce.

    Oh the Daystate .25 36 grain solid pellets were $32.95 for 250. That is very inexpensive if you compare them to Mr. Hollowpoint 35 grain .25 bullets for airguns that run 50 for $25.

    BTW the Air Ranger could arrive anytime. I sure hope the UPS gorilla didnt get a hold of it even though it is double boxed.

    Air Ranger arrived! I asked them to pick a dark marbled stock and they sent a real dandy. I'll post some pictures later. I am almost afraid to touch it like a real expensive shotgun. The Huggett custom shroud looks very cool as well. They sent a test target (one hole) and shot string with JSB Kings. It shoots them at 49 fpe according to their string. Kodiaks would be in the low 50s then.

    I have to put the Hawke Tactical back on and gas it up after work. cheers

    I just realized I don't think I ever posted pictures of the new Air Ranger. It touts a Hawke Sidewinder Tactical 6.5-20x42 scope with a 4" SF wheel option and a Vortex scope level (only on latest picture). It also has a Huggett shroud which is very effective but expensive. I asked for as much dark grain, tiger stripping, etc as I could get. The tigger stripping is cool. You see the stripes at one angle but they disappear and appear in a different location at another angle.
