    Why doesnt Daystate make any more FT dedicated rifles with straight forward mechanical parts...instead of battery operated ??:rolleyes:

    This 1998 beauty surely deserves a 2012 Relaunch ??

    Did anyone own one of these ? and how would it compete / fare against todays crop of Steyrs, Walthers, AA EV2 etc..??

    I remember years ago mid 90's dave baines & trev ryan used the cr94 then the cr97 onto crX & both using them to win GP,s at the time. I think accuracy has been with us for a while i thinks its just the new super guns have much better triggers and ease of use. Trevs the man he n dave were die hard daystate men.

    A few of them classic Daystates (from the time they where good) are still about on the circuit and doing ok. Chris Lee still has a 97 i do believe. One issue with them though was that the trigger could be a total swine to set up....

    For me this is the most beautiful Daystate ever the CR-MM (Millennium) made of Titanium!

    :eek:

    Honestlly, looks...wayyyyyyyyyyy Over The Top... but then, 'one man's idea of beauty is another mans' nightmare' :D

    I reckon like the CR97, plain, simple elegant lines, letting the bare unengraved titanium and non lacquered stock would have made this gun even more bootiful !

    but hats off to my American cousin paperweight collector ! :D

    It was £25k Gar, I asked Tony Belas about making me one and it was even more and personally I'd rather a cinema.;)
