Building on the all-conquering successes its Red Wolf model achieved through 2018, Daystate is unveiling a new high-power model for 2019 at this year’s IWA Outdoor Classics Trade Fair being held in Nuremberg, Germany.
Visually, the Red Wolf Safari is distinguished by its avant-garde woodwork, textured to create added grip and complement the good ergonomics already afforded by a stock incorporating an adjustable cheek and butt pad. But the new Safari is also quite a powerhouse – capable of up to 60ft/lbs in .25 calibre in fact. And it’s all courtesy of two all-new developments: its GCU version 2.0 electronics and highly-advanced ART polygonal barrel.
Version 2.0 of its Gun Control Unit – the electronic firing system that regulates the firing valve and air release – now incorporates completely updated hardware that, ultimately, helps Daystate’s ground-breaking electronic rifles to produce up to 20 per cent more muzzle energy than previous incarnations were capable of. It also allows for more shots per air fill and a superior electronic trigger function, all of which translates into making GCU 2.0-equipped rifles even more accurate.
The new barrel harnesses the Safari’s precision even further, courtesy of the ART programme. The Accuracy Research Team (ART) barrel is a collaboration between world-renowned barrel maker, Lothar Walther and a team of engineers and shooters from Italy, the UK and US. Featuring a polygonal bore and slow-twist rifling, it reduces friction and optimizes pellet spin for improved in-flight stability.
