MORE REVERE REVELATIONS
In reference to the Editor’s Test of the Daystate Huntsman Revere, on one count, it is ‘a hell of an update’, and in spite of all the rude remarks, I love it. I only own two Daystates:
1. Hunter Regal – a lovely gun, easy to use and deadly accurate, but I don’t care so much for the bolt-action; possibly from memories of National Service rifles.
2. I have just recently purchased the Huntsman Revere. I think it is far better and more pleasant, but can’t claim that it is more accurate to use – there might be a bit of age shake in the system now – but the sidelever is great and helps to keep old bones on target.
There is one small complaint from my point of view, and that’s the new mag’; the blue is fine, but it will not interchange with the original Regal mag’s, so you get one more expense if you require a second mag’ – good for
Daystate, bad for Ted.
One other small point on your two-part test; has Daystate reduced the recommended price of the Revere, or was that an an oversight?
All the best now, and keep up the good work. Apart from the odd hiccup, it’s a damn good magazine.
Ted - thanks for the nice comments, and yes, that was a typo, not a massive discount, I’m afraid. As for the new magazine, it’s designed to fit your Regal, and most other ‘modern’ Daystates, but the upgrades on the new mag’ mean the Regal’s mag’ won’t fit the Revere. I hope that’s clear, even if you find it a bit frustrating! - Ed
The thoughts and opinions on the new Daystate Revere keep coming, and they’re mostly positive.
