Absolutely. I'd buy one. Maybe this is what they are now planning. Stuart's GP now has a fully floated barrel and no chrono....

Premise being a basic rule of engineering development, keep or refine what does work, investigate and re-engineer what doesnt work, and make sure all the componant parts all work together....

Default Daystate and FT

I would be chuffed to see a new Daystate that was suited for FT as said an updated CR-X etc.

Even if they give the option of electronic trigger and mechanical etc for the buyers choice. Some people do like the electronic trigger setup. So why not have the option of both??

The Mk4's are fantastic for grouping etc but as said alot of people do prefer the mechanical trigger.

Holly,

None of us know only Tony if Daystate are looking to develop and produce a rifle for FT with a mechanical trigger etc.

The Daystates are over 10 years old now and that might be some of the reason they are not being used anymore. There are alot of RN10's and PT's still out there you are right, alot of them have been tweaked and played with mind. Thats why they are still going strong. I like the PT's myself and owned a carbine years ago.

How many old CR-X's were produced after compared to the RN 10's and PT's???

If I remember right even then Daystates where a lot more money than the equivilent Air Arms, so you'd see a lot more Air Arms about than Daystates or Ripleys!

Default Yes

Yes the CRX was dearer . which was one of the reasons it did not sell well . BUT was it better is the question to ask . no good having rose tinted specs over this model . remember the one they put TWO regs in ? TWO regs . why . what was a matter with one . good looking rifles yes . but old clarky had one and no matter what he did to it . it would not shoot well . nope , change the name to SEX and that might sell well ? i bet the welsh would buy it ??? HOLLY
