Hi lads. What's people's thoughts on a .22 air ranger running 30-40 ft pounds ?
A fancied on in .25 at 60 fpe but been adviced that is a bad idea.
A also like the look of a wolverine b type
Any advice would be great.

A ranger or wolf in .22 with 16gr pellets between 900fps and 950fps wil be an excellent tool and will smack quarry down hard !

Ok sound. Is there an air wolf without the electronics ?
The whole daystate range looks smart.

All AirWolfs are electronic, there are different versions though, early models don't have the screen and have a slightly different setup than the newer models with the screen :)

The newer Wolfs have two power settings so 40ftlb or 30ftlb, a ranger is fixed at the power ordered ( unless reset by a gunsmith). If you go for a Ranger I would recommend 30ftlb as you have a far more pellets to choose from, not many pellets handle 40ftlb so you become limited to only a few that not only handle the power but are accurate too :)

I would vote to go for a Ranger.
The Wolverines are new and alot of stuff lately out of Daystate seems to be way bellow there usuall very high standard. And for that rason I would look at a second hand 2-year old Ranger !

Ah really. A rang daystate today asking questions. And I asked how many wolverines they had returned with faults and was told there was less rangers than wolverines.
A will be looking for a second hand ranger. A just don't want a bad one but I suppose that's the chance you take with second hand.
Are daystate just having a few teething problems in there new factory or has there quality dropped beyond repair
A have always like the look of daystate air weapons let's hope normal service returns soon.

The Ranger is a truly great rifle, the new Wolverine B types are similar but have new features like anti double load etc, they are only available at just over 30ftlb, for some reason :?: . Personally I haven't seen these "issues" that are often talked about, I would assume that the reported issues occurred during the factory move. I ordered a B type for an employee through my friend who is and RFD and it arrived early with no problems, looks fantastic and performs brilliantly :D

Try to obtain an AR30 fitted with the Harper slingshot valve system. Superb performance with brilliant shotcount. I get 80 shots from a 400cc bottle.
If I have an opinion it is because I have researched it or due to life experience. It might not be the same as yours but have you done the above?
