    Things I liked:this is a classy looking rifle,the finish and blueing is top class.the action is smooth out of the box,the trigger is refined and needed no adjustment to suit my shooting style.it has dual weaver and picatinny scope rails and bipod,laser or light mounts on the front end also.it came pre charged so I could shoot it out of the box,4 mags later and I am never going back to springers or nitros again,quarter sized groups at 50 yards and I didn't even clean it beforehand.at least 40 good consistent shots per fill with a ton of power to spare at the business end,this airgun is a beast. very quiet when shooting,the new shroud does a great job,definitely back yard friendly.the impact of a pellet is louder than the discharge.i was very impressed,for this money you cant go wrong,my latest nitro piston with silencer is a lot louder. I haven't had it in the field yet but I am sure it will perform just as accurately as on the bench,I expect to get out between 75 and 100 yards with ease.I love it
    Things I would have changed:this airgun is a heavy load in the front,the synthetic stock feels good in hand but the weight would wear you down in the field.all said I wont have to worry about breaking it in a hurry I will just get a bipod for it.the butt is also a little short and I am no monster,maybe a few shims would solve this for me
    What others should know:just buy one,you wont regret one bit of it,you will wear your arms out pumping before you wear out any part of the gun,3 to 4 seconds between follow up shots will keep you fit and just looking at this gun will keep you happy

    Things I liked:Unlike so many other PCA rifles available today, mainly consisting of an action fitted on the top (or sometimes the bottom) of a tubular air reservoir. The Galatian's design is original, and uniquely different. Its design is not only appealing to the eye, more resembling the look of conventional powder burner receivers, but also contains of very clever, almost inspired mechanical design. Utilizing the mechanical advantage, gained through its side lever design. The Galatian's precision side lever/bolt action is uncommonly smooth to operate, near effortlessly, indexing the magazine, loading the pellet, & applying the safety, with each cycle of the lever. Having now experienced examining & testing 5 different Galatian QE rifles over the past year, in both .22 cal. & .25 cal., I can report that all the rifles I've seen, exhibited excellent fit & finish. I believe that these rifles are constructed of top quality materials, & for the most part, showed excellent workmanship in their construc
    Things I would have changed:Although the Galatian rifles come with a sling & sling swivel loops, the provided setup is awful. The sling’s connector clips are awkward, they are to long & noisy, plus they have weak keepers. Although the positioning of the safety, is ideal, in regard for fast & easy release. Personally, I would rather not have an automatically applied safety. I feel that the piccatinni rails on both sides of the fore-end stock, makes the rifle seem to wide & blocky. Although these side rails have screws & are easily removed, the screw holes & mounting flat remains as an eye sore. The rail on the bottom is great, but I bet more people than not, would prefer that the stock be left more streamlined without them. The operating/owners manual, is arguably insufficient, actually erroneous in sections with incorrect illustrations of another model rifle shown. The only other draw back the rifle has, is it’s weight. Mine weighs over 12 pds. with the Hawke Endurance 4-16x scope & BKL offset spit-ring mounts. That weight only gets heavier as we age, lol.
    What others should know: Unlike so many other companies that exaggerate their claims about velocity & power, it appears that Hatsan does not. All their rifles that Ive personally tested have truly met, or exceeded, their advertised velocities for that caliber. I can say that when using light pellets, all their rifles exceeded their advertised velocity. Although my experience with Hatsan has been problematic, as reflected in the number of rifles I've returned, the flaws which have been the causes of the problems I have experienced, have all been limited to accuracy (problems with the barrels) & breech seal O-rings. At present, both the .22 & .25 cal. Galatian rifles I now have, are both delivering about 45 ft/pds. of energy, while capable of easily shooting sub-inch single hole groups inside 50 yds., with very few fliers. In conclusion I have grown to love these rifles. For their price, I feel that these rifles are in a class of their own. Fully adj. stock, low profile, high capacity all metal magazines,& more
