By Bryan from USA on 2013-04-17 22:49:11Things I liked:I like the velocity and the power of the rifle. It is very accurate and I love the gas piston.
Things I would have changed:I added my own sling swivels, but factory swivels would have been nice.
What others should know:It is a chore to cock, but no more than other rifles listed in the same power category.

By Lorenzo from USA on 2014-09-21 22:25:14Things I liked:Power as advertised, good price point, and good OEM trigger (a rare thing nowadays, it seems). Hatsan has been well-written about in several reviews I had read.
Things I would have changed:Wasn't able to shoot it - see below - but the length of pull with the standard synthetic stock was quite long for me. There were spacers to make it longer, but obviously one can't make it shorter. Better to reduce the pull length by .75 inch and allow users to install the spacers if they need more pull length. Also - can they reduce the weight of this thing a bit? It weighed over 10 pounds with the OEM scope and thumbhole synthetic stock. That's REALLY heavy to shoot for a long time in the field, and no sling swivels, which at least would make installing a sling easier.
What others should know:Arrived in extremely poor condition. Badly faded stock at the rear and Vortex piston that had leaked out its gas. Contacted Hatsan and they arranged for rifle to go back to them. Cust Serv has been good and is doing the right thing. They told me changes have been made at manufacturer level in the stock and the Vortex piston seal to correct the issues I had. They upgraded the stock for me as well. I'm happy with the customer service. Flaws can happen with any product, and the way it is handled is most important. Hatsan has done it right. Update - I received the rifle and it was packed with about 100 of the Hatsan Vortex Supreme .22 14.66g pellets. When I tried to sight in, found most pellets were hitting the paper target sideways at 20 yards. I was advised by a trusted source to try JSB pellets. I ordered from Pyramyd JSB Exact Jumbo Heavy 18.13g pellets and they stabilize and shoot OK, but tumbling pellets in a Hatsan rifle with Hatsan pellets?? I'm a bit disillusioned with Hatsan.
