High Power, Bolt Action, Pre-Charged Pneumatic (PCP)

10-Shot Rotary Magazine
Walnut Stock

 

The Regal XL combines all the elements of a fine, traditional sporting air rifle in a lightweight, compact design that’s a joy to shoulder, whether you’re out in the hunting field or on the competition range.

Classic English styling complements beautifully-carved, Italian-crafted walnut woodwork which cradles a solidly engineered - yet remarkably lightweight - action. Despite its diminutive size, the Regal contains all the features airgun shooters have come to expect from a rifle that carries the famous Daystate logo.

Courtesy of its Harper patent slingshot hammer and titan valve system, the Regal is capable of performance levels which have never hitherto been achievable on a mechanically-driven PCP. This results in a much greater shot-count and even more efficient power delivery.

Nothing has been left to chance on the Regal, from its fully-shrouded match-grade barrel to its solid breech block, which comes fitted with Daystate’s proven 10-shot rotary magazine. If you prefer not to auto-load, this can instantly be replaced with an optional single-shot tray that allows direct-to-barrel loading. The rifle has been fitted with a pressure gauge to clearly indicate the remaining air status, and re-charging is a quick and easy operation courtesy of the standard snap-fit filling system, neatly concealed behind a pull-off protective cover.

The Huntsman Regal is exactly what one would expect of a high end, well built PCP air rifle. One glance reveals it's elegant, beautiful wanut stock and it's traditional styling. It's bolt action reminds one of a firearm rifle and coupled with a 10 shot magazine makes a deadly looking combination for the discriminating shooter that likes the traditional rifle look.

The Huntsman is a very quiet rifle and will work very well for the shooters that are concerned about noise. It's report is one of the quietest PCP's out there for it's power level. And speaking of it's power level, a look at the figures below will show that it ends up in the standard .22 PCP power range of 23-30 fpe depending on the pellet used and up to 44 fpe in .25 caliber.. Light pellets of course, have higher velocities but don't generate as many fpe as the heavier slower pellets. But as you look over our results you'll quickly see that this air rifle has enough power for any hunting situation.

The 10 shot magazine worked flawlessly and loaded quickly and easily so there is very little down time getting the magazine loaded and back in the rifle. The magazine is inserted into the rifle from the left side and removing the magazine is also done from the left side. And speaking of removing the magazine from the rifle, the Huntsman is the first PCP I've encountered that "clicks" to let you know the magazine is ready to be removed. How does that happen? When the magazine is empty and its reloading time, you pull the bolt all the way back as though you are cocking the gun for another shot BUT then you push the bolt just slightly forward and you'll hear a click. Stop pushing the bolt forward when you hear the click and simply grab the magazine and remove it. The click is easy to hear and tells you exactly when you've pushed the bolt forward the proper distance which is about an inch or so. It's a really different but very nice feature. I got used to that very quickly and wish more guns had the same feature.

TThe gun can be charged to 3000 psi at which level it will get about 45-50 useable shots in .22 and about 22 shots in .25 caliber. The gun can also be charged to 230 BAR (about 3330 psi) which will yield an extra 10 shots in either caliber. For the shooters using a handpump, it might be noted that charging to 3000 psi will mean less pumping but not a lot of difference in the number of shots. 3000 psi might be the better option for the handpumpers but the option is there to fill to whichever level trips your trigger.

The weight of the gun is rather surprising also. Based on the looks of the gun, one would expect the gun to be in the usual 7.5-8 lb. range. But in actuality, the gun weighs only 6.5 lbs. which makes it very comfortable to carry and shoot. That's yet another attractive feature.

Bottom line is that this rifle is one that will appeal in one way or another to almost all shooters and would make a very nice addition to one's airgun collection or as their only air rifle.

This gun is everything I wanted in a .22 caliber PCP , it is a beautiful and well built rifle.The quality of the gun overall is impeccable.

Advantages: Lightweight/powerful/ very high shot count/very accurate/ the gun is very efficient with the usage of air/pretty quite with suppressor.

Disadvantages: Hard to put down so you will go through pellets very fast .It looks more sexy without the sound suppressor but sounds like a 22 rimfire.

This is a fantastic rifle and it just beams with quality.
The Straight Shooters description of this rifle says everything about it.
It is quiet, powerful, and it is a tack driver in the accuracy dept.
It is also light weight and that makes carrying it a pleasant experience.
The magazine is also top notch and very easy to load.

Advantages: Accurate, light weight, easy to use, great shot count, and quiet.
The Price of this rifle for the performance is excellent.
Fun, Fun ,Fun to shoot I can't get over how accurate it is.

Disadvantages: The only disadvantage to this Rifle that I can think of is the magazine doesn't stop after last shot.
This has caused me to end up dry firing it and realizing I had spent the magazine.
But this is common with most of the magazines in most rifles.

I have a Marauder as well after the last shot the magazine blocks the breach witch is a nice feature to have.
