Description

 

The Daystate Huntsman Regal XL has a Worldwide reputation as the finest sporting air rifle in current production.  The Huntsman's pedigree of elegance and precision inspires pride of ownership sans the price  associated with the Regal's level of quality fit and finish. The Daystate team has raised the Regals performance standard with the addition of a HUMA regulator factory installed and tuned. The Regal XL Huma provides the shooter a match winning level of consistent velocity and accuracy. Included with each rifle are two pressure gauges. One on the air cylinder for reading the rifles state of air charge and another in the stock fore arm that displays the regulator pressure. The Huntman's handy size, light weight and long range performance assure the owner satisfaction in the field or around the home. With one of the finest hand-rubbed walnut oil finished stocks and the meticulously fitted action the Huntsman Regal XL Huma feels soft and looks solid. The ten shot magazine system readies the next pellet for fire with each cocking stroke from the polished chrome bolt handle. Long range accuracy is delivered from the Lothar-Walther barrel with very low muzzle report by the included Daystate reflex sound reducing system. The two stage adjustable trigger assure a crisp let off and accurate shot placement. The Daystate Huntsman Regal XL has, and will continue to set the standard that other sporting air rifles will be judged.

Great right out of the Box
I have a custom made 7MM LRM and wanted an air rifle that would allow me to practice without having to travel to the range and spend $5 per round. My Regal with the 5.5-25X scope seemed to fit the bill. I have to admit I was skeptical that this would be even close to meeting expectations. I have owned several springers in the past and they fell quite short. The Regal in .22 on the other hand is a 10 right out of the box. Within 10 shots I had it zeroed in and pellet after pellet go hole in hole. This is my first PCP and it is easy to fill. I got about 40 shots out of my first fill before drop off. It is amazingly accurate. The trigger is light and crisp. I am shooting 5 shot groups under 1/4" at 25 yards. I found the action easy to operate, the multi-shot magazine reminds me of my Ruger 10/22. My only complaint is I wish it held more rounds. It was more that I was expecting to spend on a pellet gun setup, and it is worth every penny of it!

Spot On Awesome PCP
Huntsman Regal XL HR This gun is a thing of beauty. The walnut stock is flawless and the wood grain is superb. Love the classic styling and old school bolt action. It's very quiet right out of the box, pump friendly and supper accurate. I'm shooting JSB Exact Diabolo 18gr and hitting house fly's at 25 yards consistently. The Aztec scope is top notch and the Hillman pump gets it filled up and topped off nicely. Thanks to all the people behind these top notch guns at Daystate. Thanks to all the folks doing the Youtube reviews and everyone at AoA.

My Third Attempt to get this right.
Beautiful, accurate, simple...... but
I purchased this gun in it's newest iteration, the XL HR (Huma Regulated) in .22 caliber. I am very pleased with the gun, however, it's not all pie in the sky. The gun is everything stated in the A.O.A. review video with two notable exceptions, and one minor inherent flaw not in the gun, but in the magazine.

First, the shot count of the HR version is right at 30-32 usable when filled to 3000 psi before it falls severely off the regulator at which point it's accuracy, the strongest asset of this rifle, is no longer dependable. The problem is that this cylinder needs to be filled to 250 bar (3600+ psi) which for many folks with fill tanks is not going to be possible. It's impossible for me to fill the gun past 190 bar with my 88 cubic inch AV fill station. In order to get the 42-44 shot capacity I need to fill it directly from my HPA compressor. This isn't an issue at home, but it certainly puts a crimp in my step when I leave for the range or anywhere else. So while this certainly shouldn't be a deal breaker, anyone considering this rifle, should be made aware of this issue.

My second concern is with the entire bolt action system which I find very stiff and not at all as smooth and easy as one would expect from a gun at this price point. It's not gritty, it's simply stiff. I'm hoping that this will loosens up over time with use ( I have only a couple thousand rounds through the gun at this point ).

Lastly, and this has to do with the multi-shot magazine, not the gun itself. The magazine is fiddly at best. Surprisingly, on a gun that is based around straight forward simplicity, Daystate has chose to over complicate the multi-shot mechanism to such a degree as to make it a huge P.I.T.A. to use. The issue is mainly in it's self indexing mechanism which simply put, is rubbish, and expensive rubbish at that! The magazine easily loses indexing continuity. When this happens, and it happens often, it fails to advance leaving pellets unshot and the magazine very difficult (sometimes nearly impossible) to extract.

All in all, this is an incredible gun, a real game changer and money I would gladly spend again and again even knowing about these issues. The gun is simply that good. However, pretty videos with dramatic music serve a purpose, they're the bait on the hook. The reality, although still lovely, isn't without a couple of rough edges. Transparency in all thing leaves everyone smiling.

I grabbed #1 !!!
This is a typical Daystate, awesome quality, immaculate fit and finish and pin point accuracy. If these are the things that you're looking for in an air rifle you need look no further. My only complaint is that it's too good. It makes even a hack like me look like Annie Oakley. 3/8" ten shot groups at 50 yards for me is unheard of, but none the less, the very first group I shot after sighting it in (Which I did at 50 yards. There seemed no sense in even shooting shorter distances.) was fully contained within a .5" bulls eye. I almost fell outta my seat when I saw the 10th shot hit.

Is this a perfect gun? Well, in truth no. The non-standard fill probe, the non-standard cylinder capacity are the only minor gripes I can even think of... Oh yeah, the bolt is very stiff. I'm hoping it will break in over time, but the problem there is the fact that the rifle is such a gorgeous work of art that I almost don't want to shoot it !!! Well, sacrifices must be made. The HUMA regulator does a brilliant job delivering just over 30 perfectly regulated shots after which you can eek out another 15 off the reg before the drop becomes unmanageable .

Am I delighted? You bet. Would I buy it again? Absolutely. Should you buy one? Only if you don't get bored easily since there is such little variance shot to shot it tends to take the guess work out of shooting.
