    Yesterday I was on the IWA show in Germany.
    I found there.
    A total of 100 pieces made of it. The cost the same as a GP: 1700 GBP.

    Thanks for sharing the pics. That stock wouldn't be ambidextrous would it?

    Quite agree but think they will sell out, they have their band of followers who will buy anything.

    Mk 4 Platinum

    Not a Daystate owner at present, but my son has a Mk4 old style, which is accurate. Picked up the demo at Kelmarsh and was totally surprised by the neutral weight and the stock, which is ambi, but everyone who has held it thinks it is much better to the shoulder than then right-handed Grand Prix! So, both my son and I have ordered one each; I'm intending to use it in competitions only, as I have my HW100 for hunting.
    looking forward to receiving it sometime towards then end of May. You either love the stock or hate it through vision, but picking it up and holding it, wow totally smitten.

    I think that mk4 platinum is the dogs doodah, literally. A right pile of poo in the looks department. A nice rifle ruined IMO.;)

    Just jealous really that I could never afford one.:cool:

    They should have made the allen bolts from stainless, really looks bad with rust on it :(

    Ideal 4 HFT....

    ....It looks like the ideal size for HFT to me :shot:
    I must admit I am tempted, but I hate the damn triggers on them....

    ....And Daystate did not make the scope mounts, but granted whoever put the scope on should of swapped them out for stainless Allen bolts :rolleyes:

    Mark, the latest electronic triggers are a huge improvement over the old MK3/Wolf ones.;):)

    Also. i the production models won't be the same as the demo's.

    I believe that the cylinder ,barrel and block will all be the same colour. I shouldered one a t Kelmarsh and decided to buy after TB gave me the Daystate shooter price:D

    It's a long, long time since i bought a new rifle...let alone a Daystate. That's how much i like my current MK4. Thing is my sponsorship MK4 is spot on and i wan't 2 similar rifles. Maybe one FT and one for HFT.

    That means i'll have to do something i said i would never do...sell my Paul wilson GML..
