Air Gunner - - In The News -

Lit­er­ally min­utes be­fore we went to press on this is­sue, two in­trigu­ing items of in­for­ma­tion were tele­phoned in by Daystate’s main man, Tony Be­las. First, Tony told us that Daystate’s sis­ter com­pany, Brocock, would soon be re­leas­ing the Ban­tam, which is ba­si­cally a buddy-bot­tle fed Com­patto, ca­pa­ble of pro­duc­ing 30 ft.lbs. over 30 shots per charge, or 120 at sub-12, both in .22 cal­i­bre. The Ban­tam is set to re­tail at £ 689 and will be un­veiled at the S.H.O.T. Show in Las Ve­gas this Jan­uary. Then, just as Tony was sign­ing off, he said, ‘Oh, and Daystate will be re­leas­ing a lim­ited edi­tion ri­fle be­fore Christ­mas. That’s Christ­mas 2016!’ Par­don? ‘Yes, we’ve been work­ing on it for two years and it’s def­i­nitely hap­pen­ing.’ That’s it. Tony would re­veal no more, apart from a prom­ise to get one to us as soon as it’s avail­able. This is a ‘watch this space’ deal if ever there was one.
