A 40th birthday is well worth marking and Daystate certainly celebrated theirs in style! On Monday the 3rd of December, they welcomed some 50 friends, colleagues and members of the press to the wonderful Royal Armoury in Leeds to remember the company’s illustrious past and open a window into its bright future.
On display were some 50 classic Daystate models, including some unusual ones that few had ever seen. There was also a chance to see the first ever successful airgun, the Girandoni that was in fact a weapon of war.
