The Daystate Wolverine air rifle was introduced in 2012, first with the 7.62 mm calibre, and later with the more usual 4.5 mm, 5.5 mm and 6.35 mm calibres. In 2017, the new Wolverine2 B and Wolverine2 C models were introduced in Las Vegas at Shot Show. In 2018, an innovated Wolverine R model was introduced by Daystate, now equipped with a regulator of the renowned Huma producer.
The Wolverine model is further improved through the application of Pulsar Renegade model valve, which optimises the air flow, providing a higher number of shots. The original bolt was replaced with a brand new Pulsar model, along with a side lever action for reloading, which can be easily removed tot he other side of the weapon for left-hand users.
The Wolverine R model is shorter than the Wolverine model, with the rifle’s centre of gravity being shifted slightly more backwards, making the rifle better balanced. The adjustable buttplate is also Pulsar model. The air rifle is further equipped with a Huma regulator and two manometers, one showing the cartridge pressure, and the other showing the regulator pressure.
The brand new type of Lothar Walther choice barrel, first used by Daystate with Pulsar and Renegade models, is a must. The barrel is of a 'shrouded' type, meanign the barrel itself is covered with an outer layer, which serves as a sound moderator; the barrel itself is 43 cm long. The barrel is finished with a 1/2 UNF male thread for further moderator mounting. While presenting the rifle, Tony Belas (Daystate) jokingly remarked that one pays more for an eastern produced rifle than for a Lothar Walther barrel used with Daystate rifles J The barrel is finished a thread, enabling further moderator mounting.
The Daystate Wolverine HiLite 5.5 mm air rifle has a laminated TH-type stock with a thumbhole. The Kevlar cartridge has a 480 cm3 capacity. It is filled using a quick fill connector, included in the package. The cartridge can be filled up to the 230 BAR pressure, with one filling being enough for 450 shots with 4.5 mm calibre and for circa 500 with 5.5 mm calibre. The rifle is 96.5 cm long , with barrel length 43 cm and 3.5 kg weight.
Mounting rail has 11 mm for the riflescope mounting, 10 shots magazine, manual safety etc.
With the choice Lothar Walther barrel, and with Huma regulator ensuring the individual shot consistency, the air rifle is flawlessly accurate. Daystate, inventor of PCP air rifles and for over 40 years the pioneer of this technology, once again surpasses all other producers.
