Is anyone taking orders for them yet?  Any clue when they will be available?   I heard as early as April, I'm in no hurry, but I think I will place an order for one.  I Liked the gun alot when I was searching and waiting and searching for my AA 410.

For me it will be between a Day State and a R10.  I guess I have a month or two to figure it out.  Thanks for the info.

Are you thinking of the Daystate Huntsman or Airwolf?

Went to AOA and was able to shoot all three Daystates.  The new regulated Huntsman was spectacular at 24FPE.  Best air gun I have ever handled.  Shot a Air Ranger at 50FPE.  I think you could elk hunt with that one.  Very nice and not very loud.  Then the Airwolf which is the most advance air gun in the world.  Electronic.  WOW.  Worth the extra money you pay.  But I would rather have a mechanical action.  So that 's where I'am.  Air Ranger with its power or Huntsman with regulator at 24FPE.  Almost wish I stayed away from the Darkside cause they will spoil you.

you know what is funny.  we just bought these new pcp's and already looking at the 'other' stuff.  I dont know why we have to do that, I guess we are programmed to do that!  

I like the sleekness of the Huntsman.  But I like the power and shot capacity of the Airwolf.  The BSA R-10 has most of the features of the Airwolf, not counting the electronics.  But i agree with you, I 'think' i like the mechnical better...  

Then you have the Theoben's.  They are between the two in cost.  But when you add the quick fill option you are nearly the same price as the Airwolf.  I like the looks of the Airwolf better.  But I like the cost of the R-10 much better...  :D  

So Paul, are you going to make another visit to AoA to give us the scoop on the R10 when it comes in?

Yes.  I will do a side by side comparison.  I going to be hard to beat that Huntsman and Air Ranger though.  
You get addicted and there's no turning back Johnny.
