Announcing The New Daystate Saxon Limited Edition Air Rifle

The Daystate Saxon Limited Edition air rifle is a celebration of England! It commemorates the 950th anniversary of the end of Saxon rule and the Coronation of the Norman King William I (William the Conqueror) on the 25th of December 1066, and a line of Kings and Queens of England unbroken to this day.

The Saxon is also the launch model of the newly revised and improved Wolverine 2 model that will be released early in 2017. It’s for sale in the UK from today! US availability is not known by HAM at the time of writing, however, we suggest contacting Airguns of Arizona for details.

The new Wolverine 2 will update the current model introduced three years ago, the updated rifle features a revised valve system and new Gary Cane stock, together with other improvements that bring this popular rifle right up to date.

It also incorporates all established Wolverine safety features such as bolt open safety, anti-double-load mechanism built into the magazine indexing system, and a centrally mounted safety catch. Add to that a bolt system that can be changed from right to left in minutes by the user and you have a rifle that is fully ambidextrous as well as extremely safe.

The Saxon Limited Edition’s styling is intended to mimic colors and patterns used in the Anglo-Saxon era. It incorporates etchings and words in both Anglo-Saxon and Latin, both languages being in use 950 years ago.
