    That's very nice Jeremy.

    You need to speak to Steve and Rich about the team rifles, I think they know the whole story.

    What a lovely gun. I think that's the original butt hook too.

    Those are lovely examples of the CR97's

    That does look like the original DS butt hook.
    I had a CRX which came after the 97's and that had a very similar looking hook and IIRC the CRX had a completely new trigger block and possibly a different reg ??.
    I think also that after the CRX Daystate did a CR MM , in titanium maybe it was a long time ago , it also was a limited edition.

    Some team members had their 97s fitted with the crx trigger unit, me included, as it wasn't a time consuming job machining wise so Simon did it while I was there. CRX top ends bolted straight on without mods.
    There was a few fitted with twin regs at the time too, but a pain to set up.
    Even variants on the hammers from a round standard version to a lightweight one which was machined away to a Maltese cross profile end on. Massively adjustable, great guns and had many of the mods as standard that people were doing to the Air Arms 100 series at the time.

    Nice rifle.

    IIRC, I believe that the SE version of the CR97 was fitted with a CR-X type trigger unit as standard.

    Jeremy,

    The Daystate CR97SE was a limited edition air gun made in silver to celebrate Daystate's 20th Anniversary (1978/1998). Only 25 of these guns were ever made and they were individually issued with a signed authenticity certificate by Ken Gibbon (the owner of Daystate) and his son Simon Gibbon (Senior Workshop Technician).

    My gun is number 7 out of 25 and I purchased it back in 2007 from Steve Franklin, who shot in the Daystate Team.
    Rich Beaugie another Team Member sold his a year or so ago to a collector in UK.

    At least 8 of the 25 are no longer about. Most of the remaining 17 still in existence are now thought to be held by collectors in the USA. Only about 5 0r 6 remain in the UK.

    Is it the Titanium Cylinder you are selling Jeremy, If so please can I purchase it from you?

    I would love to try one of those. That's a lovely rifle Tony. The guy I bought my Grand Prix from had one.

    That is because your rifle is not an SE version it is just a straight CR97 in silver finish.

    It has the standard CR97 trigger unit rather than the more advanced unit of the 'SE' that was subsequently fitted as standard to the CR-X rifles

    This is your rifle when I owned it and it was fitted into a mahogany FT stock:
