Daystate Alpha Wolf PCP Air Rifle
Daystate’s new Alpha Wolf sits alongside the Delta Wolf as a more sportier orientated electronic PCP, while maintaining a state-of-the-art computerised and programable action, high-end specification and power levels up to 95 ft/lbs. (Image shows optional MTC 12×50 SWAT Prismatic scope and PRS GEN4 adjustable butt pad.)
Alpha Wolf is the second ‘future-proof’ PCP that Daystate has developed, and its launch places it alongside the highly acclaimed Delta Wolf in their current line-up of world-leading, user-programable electronic air rifles. British-based Daystate’s investment into computerised airguns means its rolling development programme can easily incorporate today’s latest performance improvements as well as tomorrow’s. The Alpha Wolf takes things a step further by offering all this in a stylish, new sportier package. In short, the world’s most advanced air rifle is still the most advanced air rifle… and is now available in two formats!
Whilst complementing its Delta Wolf bullpup sibling, Alpha Wolf’s individuality is immediately obvious courtesy of a beautifully sculpted, red laminate skeleton stock with extended forend lip and new-look Picatinny optic rail – still movable fore-and-aft to cater for any day and NV scope configuration – that is fitted with an anti-cant bubble.
Elsewhere, the Alpha Wolf maintains the high-end features first seen on the Delta Wolf: on-board chronograph, quick-and-easy barrel changes, touch-screen programming and Windows platform synchronisation courtesy of an optional plug-in ‘dongle’, electronic air regulation, double-magazine system, A.R.T barrel, adjustable cheek and butt pad, fully adjustable trigger and blade, carbon-fibre bottle and multiple accessory rails. It has also been designed to accept a host third-party options and upgrades, such as those from Precision Rifle Systems.
As testament to Daystate’s future-proof rifle philosophy, the new computerised technology built into Alpha Wolf – which now boasts full functionality across the Hi-Power (HP) and sub-12ft/lb models – can also be retro-fitted into its other sibling.
