Birth­day cel­e­bra­tions

Air Gunner - - In The News -

In prepa­ra­tion of Daystate’s 40th year cel­e­bra­tions later in Oc­to­ber yet to be an­nounced, Daystate held an open day for the Tin­ley Park tar­get shoot­ing club. Tins­ley Park has been par­tic­u­larly sup­port­ive to the com­pany over the last few years. Mem­bers of the club have helped with user tri­als on new and mod­i­fied ri­fles, so Daystate felt that they could of­fer some­thing back to the club, and at the same time prac­tise for the up­com­ing cel­e­bra­tion. The venue was the Daystate fac­tory where the day was split into two halves, the first be­ing a talk by Tony Be­las on the his­tory of the com­pany, fol­lowed by a demon­stra­tion of sev­eral of the his­toric ri­fles owned by Daystate, and mem­bers of the owner’s club who were also present to sup­port the event. This was fol­lowed by demon­stra­tion by Si­mon Cock­ayne on ri­fle ser­vic­ing and re­pair.

Af­ter a brief lunch, the sec­ond part fo­cused on the lat­est ri­fles and the fu­ture. Club mem­bers were given a pre­sen­ta­tion by the new man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of Daystate, Gi­ambat­tista Sa­batti, fol­lowed by a tour of the pro­duc­tion fa­cil­ity where club mem­bers were shown the assem­bly process and test­ing of Daystate ri­fles, such as the Hunts­man, Wolver­ine R and the very lat­est elec­tronic Red Wolf. The day was videoed for pos­ter­ity and pub­lished on the web at: https://www.youtube.com/watch? v= uGyQ4hPj_ hQ. Daystate say that they plan to do one more be­fore the main event sched­uled for the end of Oc­to­ber, and will then be run­ning club days through­out 2019.
