I bought my X2 over 2 years ago and it's my first PCP rifle. I wish I'd done this sooner! I have the regulated model with a C.Fibre silencer - this really works - the kit is absolutely silent! I have a Hawke sight calibrated for 25mtrs and coupled with the X2 they are unbeatable. I've turned up a small loader for the pellets into the magazine which ensures they all seat correctly - I can reload the 10 shot mag in 30 seconds - Daystate should supply one of these FOC. The bolt action is really... (read more)

A top end gun but not to the build quality of a weihrauch HW 100. also not the quietest by a long way, again that honour has to go to the Weihrauch as does the side lever on the weihrauch and later air arms. Saying that though it's a very good rifle , the Gary Cane stock is excellent, the ventilated barrel tip finisher looks great and overall it's very eye catching, attracting lots of great comments, if that's what you want, and at this price it really should meet all the criteria of...

i had never thought about owning a daystate until my x2r was offered to me as a swap.i like the wood work,accuracy and reasonably low weight.
i do not like the noisy action and inaccurate magazine indexing,the magazine is very pellet fussy.i have had this rifle 3 months and will very soon be selling it. (read more)

Daystate have gone further and further down hill in terms of the quality of their rifles and their customer service.
Most of their new guns seem to be faulty - everything that shows up at my rifle club is normally sent back due to faults.
My X2 was from the days when they were still making RWS quality rifles - however the regulator went and it was firing well over power, I sent it back to be fixed and they took over 2 months to fix it then sent it back with a broken stock (from over... (read more)

I purchased my X2 over two years ago....I wish I'd done it sooner. What a superb piece of kit. Accurate to 30 yrds - consistently. I purchased the regulated model with the 10 slug magazine. Absolutely brilliant!!!
Coupled with a decent Hawke tele sight this kit is un-beatable.
I've been on a number of "boys weekends" now target shooting in local woods and the rifle is always the centre of attention. I've become something of a legend - and it's all down to the X2!
The scope was set up by my... (read more)

My daystate x2sport is one of the best air rifles i have ever used. it is super accurate,with build quality second to none.for hunting and target shooting alike i find it superb. the trigger and your finger become as one because of the fine adjustment and trigger positioning. stock design and quality of wood that is used enhance the air rifles attraction.
when using the single shot facility though, i find it somtimes difficult
to locate the .177 pellet in the locating channel. the multi shot... (read more)

I had to ship my Daystate X2 sport to a machinist in Arizona for creation of a delrin insert that surrounds the barrel, thereby effectively centering the bore to the shroud. Until that point, pellets were clipping the inside of the end cap. And don't even try using a mod with it until you've resolved the out-of-center barrel, or you'll blow the insides apart! Daystate should be ashamed to put out products such as these, especially at the price they charge; brand new Air Rangers and Air... (read more)

The Daystate X2 is beautifully made with very nice curves and you can see that daystate have tried hard to get the best looks on all their guns by looking at this gun. It is built very strong, I have tried climbing over a fence well not a fence its a kind of tiny ladder thing and the top piece of wood broke and I fell straight down whacking the end of the gun on the fence thing very very hard and I didn ' t even look at it for a minute thinking the worst and it was completely unharmed it was...

I have wanted to own a Daystate for over twenty years and I must say that now I have one I am not disappionted.Everything about the rifle oozes quality and as far as accuracy and ease of handling are concerned I can recommend the X2.I have owned and used dozens of air weapons and few can match this Daystate.I know there are more sophisticated air rifles but I'm old fashioned,I like my guns mechanical!

This is my second pcp and i am very impressed with it. its a good looking rifle, accuracy very good and very well made, the only bad points are the weight and the length. With a sound moderator fitted it is a very long rifle and in the summer months this can get you caught up in foliage. All in all its a very good rifle and would i buy this again? 100% yes. The rifle is now 2 years old and it has never missed a beat not 1 pellet jam no miss index and never failed to shoot i would strongly... (read more)

An awesome all round weapon for target or hunting Daystate have been producing P.C.P gun for a long while and i suppose at a price of £640.00 its a top end price but would like a basic BMW or a top of the range Austin Martin. Also you have the after sales service which is spot on. (read more)

I own many airguns and the dealer finally talked me into trying a Daystate. What a mistake! There is no way to justify lugging around an airgun that weighs this much. It weighs much more than a high end big game rifle. Many other owners have told me about a problem with a misalignment in the baffles in the shrouded barrel. My .22 cal Daystate rifle shoots with 40 ft. lbs of energy but shoots Kodiak pellets all over the neighborhood. It is a joke. It is slightly better with JBS 14.4 gr... (read more)

It's a great gun to shoot. I fitted mine with a Logun Silencer Hawke 3-9x40 night eye IR scope and a hawk mk3 lazer. Shot pigeons rabbits and other vermin out to 50 yards perfect for hunting and a comfortable gun to shoot. (read more)

Can't rate Daystate the firm highly enough, they were so helpful in sorting me out a fully left handed gun very quickly even though there built to order, really nice people to deal with. The gun is superb to look at and to use, my first multi shot - pre charged, what took me so long! I can't believe how its improved my shooting, my group on targets has gone from covering the paper to a tight group around the bullseye even at 40yrds. And its got a 3yr warranty. (read more)
