The GP was Daystates first real attempt to produce something FT specific (I'm not really counting a half hearted MK3 in a big stock) for quite some time. The old CR-X and CR-97 were two of the very best FT specific rifles built,Shame they tryed to get clever with the electronics
Maybe they'll get round to sponsoring a lot of the better FT shots on the circuit and then just watch the popularity rise if the results go well. However, I suspect that AA have probably got all the best (that were available to sponsor) sewn up already. There is talk of a GP team for 2010 but as you say the best have been snapped up by AA, Didn't stop walther taking the manufactures title last year though
Looks like Daystate missed a trick with John Costello too. He was Daystate through and through at one point. I doubt that anyone could part him from his Steyr now.
So very true...
