It is 480 cc i replaced the standard 400cc
Noticeable weight saving and much improved balance
Also a great increase in shot count so stays in the sweet spot for many more shots

Lovely, I have a 500cc bottle on my early Airwolf and get around 375 shots before topping up :D

You just can't beat having a big bottle for a long sweet spot. :D
You've done a good job Grumps, all things being equal, I doubt you could get a better Daystate even one with gold plated trigger and carbon fibre bits. Roll on the better weather and some enjoyable shooting. ;)

Grumps, now you have what is hopefully a fully sorted rifle, just make sure you keep it. ;)
