Things I liked:Clean fingers accuracy and the extra downrange power. Things I would have changed:Do i have to say it?A swrew on cap and a 500 count tin.They are a little pricey but worth it for the accuracy. What others should know:I have been shooting these out of my Ruger Airhawk and they have tightened my groups up to .8 inch @ 25 yards.These have been the most accurate pellets I have put through this rifle yet.The CPHP shot 2 in @25yards.5 in @ 25yards with the terrible pba raptor gold.2.5 in @25yards with the cheap daisys and pba armor peircing.And last 3 inch groups@25 with the redfire,crossman pointed.With the ftt power I can shoot @ 60 yards and hit a empty 10 3/4 oz cambells soup and blow right through it no problem 9 out of 10 shots.I think the miss is due to shooter error as I am new th the "art" of spring gun shooting. I am very pleased with the performance of this pellet and it will be my go to medium weight.Now onto testing heavy pellets.
Things I liked:Accuracy,my tech force 89 contender will shoot these about 3/4 of an inch at 50 yards.highest fpe out of all pellets I have chronographed. Things I would have changed:nothing What others should know:These fit a little loose in my brothers hatsan mod 95.
Things I liked:I have had this rifle for 6 months. The rifle had a spring twang when I received it and honked when cocking. It shot 25.4 jsb at an average of 690fps per the ten for ten test.I ordered a new seal with the rifle and rebuilt it right away. Mine likes to be held firmly to shoot tight groups. Polymags are the most accurate but it is not very picky. The bejamin domes the jsbs and the barracudas are all more accurate than I am. At 20 yards I can shoot nickel size groups off-hand as long as I do my part. Difficult rifle to shoot and I do not recommend it for someone new to spring rifles. All metal parts appear to be manufactured well but the assembly process seems to lack quality control. My trigger housing was smashed almost flat. Hatsan customer service is atrocious. Deal directly with pyramid air if problems arise within the 30 period and avoid the headache. If you tune the rifle immediately like I did you void ANY warranty. Things I would have changed:Sell it without the scope. I gave the rifle five stars for its current performance but if I rated it as I received it, it would only be a three. What others should know:I would order a new piston seal from the start. I broke mine down after baseline chrono session. First off the seal looked like it was dry fired twice as there were round cuts from where the piston bottomed out. After making hardened stainless washers for the mainspring.Cleaned up the spring ends and moly burnished the washers and spring ends. Coated the spring with heavy tar. De-burred all parts and moly burnished the compression tube. Polished the barrel bore with mothers mag polish and cleaned it. Replaced the piston seal with a high quality one. I now get between 765 to 770fps with the 27.8 Benjamin dome pellets and a whopping 628 to 635fps with the 43.2 eunjins. That is 38ft lb. These numbers are after 1000 rounds and 4ft from my chrono. I don't know how other 125's will respond to a tune of this nature nor expect yours to make these numbers. I expect this rifle to be the exception to the rule and not the norm.
