By Brian from USA on 2013-02-17 20:42:43Things I liked:Heavy, solid rifle. Very well made. Fit n finish is adequate. Kicks like a mule in .25 cal. You definately know you have your hands on a serious magnum rifle. Bought exact kings, eunjin 43 grain, and field target trophy pellets with the gun, and so far the kings are what this gun absolutely loves. I'm able to easily send nickel sized groups out at 40 yards, and the energy delivered is impressive. The nitro piston is smooth and powerful. Much better than a spring in my opinion.
Things I would have changed:Toss the rings on the scope and replace them with a better set. My .25 cal shattered the rear rings on the scope after about ten shots! Went to wal mart and spent ten bucks on a set of weaver quad lock 1" extra high rings. Five minutes later all is well, and I am totally satisfied.
What others should know:This gun is huge. Standing upright beside me it is level with my shoulder! Clean it as soon as you get it, BEFORE you take your first shot. Mine was fairly grubby inside and out when it arrived. And tighten the scope mounts incrementally during its first 20 shots or so if you don't replace the rings. The recoil from this .25 monster will make those cheap rings dance around like a stripper on Friday night. Loving this rifle...BUY IT!

By Rudy from USA on 2013-07-19 21:55:30Things I liked:The rifle is very accurate out of the box and the synthetic stock is comfortable. Cocking effort is heavy but manageable as I could cock it using 1 arm to break the barrel while pushing on stock grip with the other.It is a great upper body work out btw. After a lot of shooting it is much easier just to set the rifle on the rubber stock pad and use both arms to cock. The nitro system is super smooth and powerful.
Things I would have changed:Dump the scope and offer a more adjustable trigger assembly.
What others should know:I should have paid closer attention to the set of pictures. The Hatsan sight shows set screw adjustments on the Quattro ad but the rifle came with cap screws that limit adjustment. I could have changed the screws and springs but that is risky and would void the warranty. At age 59 but in really good shape this rifle was very heavy and long for me. I would have needed a prop for hunting but it is superb from the bench. Unfortunately my particular rifle had some other issues and was returned within the 30 day period. Working in a manufacturing environment things do happen so I will not give a low score as this rifle really is a high quality unit. PA was super in assisting with the return and issued full credit upon receiving the rifle. I purchased an RWS34 T06 at the same time but wanted a gas piston rifle for the field also. I will purchase another rifle from PA really soon, that's for sure.
