    ive just got mine up and going again my its bloody good for a gun made in 97,it does not kick has a wicked trigger which u can feel,as good as my steyrs etc,y did daystate ever go electronic with un relieable guns when they used to make guns like this and the old huntsman,going down the range with this to see how good she still groups,it used to do 5pence groups at 55yards on the right day with weather being good to me,dont no if this 1 has a walther barrel or the bsa barrel:):)

    Best guns with the CRX they ever made but needed sorting.
    Too expensive to make triggers like that even though got wrong angles.

    Too expensive??

    Jon,

    How do you mean that the trigger system would be too expensive to make? I liked the CR-X trigger I didnt mind the CR-97 trigger as well. Shame There isnt a top rifle by Daystate with a mechanical trigger eh.

    i think its all machined parts 5 tolerenced machine parts etc berty,i agree wit ya about i would like to see a gp level daystate without the crap on it,the crap wot keeps going wrong etc,the new trigger their is no proper point of break due to a light switch fitted,rolls straight through not break point and they kick like a mule

    Its not just the machined parts, its also the trigger block and labour setting each unit up before leaving factory.

    To give you some idea using proper equipment with QR tooling making one proper two stage trigger units parts (not a single stage- easy 1hr) 12 year ago was around 3 1/4hrs all parts. To fit, harden and setup could be looking at a whole day if at all it worked.
