Daystate has decided to discontinue the MVT electronics on their rifles, that is the built in chrony technology which enables the shooter to choose pellet speed at 1fps increments.
According to the SA Daystate agents all electronically regulated rifles will henceforth only be available in MCT, meaning there are two user adjustable power settings, a high and low but the precision regulation and shot count of the electronic regulator is still maintained.
The values of these can only be altered by using a Daystate programming unit. (Safari & Outdoor, the SA agents have one available). Before we all rush to S&O to have the values altered I'd like to add that the factory settings are optimal settings and not much can be gained by having it changed.
Looking at the decision to drop the MVT technology makes perfect sense from Daystate's side. The FAC laws in Great Britain sees to it that 12fpe rifles are by far the most popular and best sellers. There's not much to be adjusted between 6fpe minimum and 12fpe maximum so the two power settings of MCT is sufficient.
Their FAC market is mainly international meaning us South Africans are among the few nations who have the luxury of freely using FAC rifles.
Now there's a lot to adjust between 6fpe and 24fpe on a .177 rifle, especially with the variety of pellets available in this popular caliber.
So we got word that S&O only had 4 new MVT rifles left, AirWolfs in .177. MK4's in MVT were all gone
Linda is now also an AirWolf MVT convertee, only 3 left at S&O now.
