By Richard from USA on 2013-06-25 15:06:46Things I liked: I liked the looks of this rifle, and honestly have been tempted to buy another in 22 caliber as well. it is massive, it is a beast to cock, the first time i was unprepared for the strength it took. after that cocking it wasnt so bad, i knew what to expect. It has decent sights, with, open sights i could imediately nail my target , with great accuracy with no adjustments. I have a bengimen trail np xl, as well, and i would place this beside it in power, it may even surpass the np, xl in point of impact power,,,We know not every rifle responds identically i think i got a good one..
Things I would have changed: Would like a shoulder strap for carrying it, its a great rifle but humping through the brush all day it could get a bit cumbersome.not much else.
What others should know:Some of Hatsans 25 calibers fire at 650 fps, this is not one of them, it shoots at 750, And i wouldnt be suprised if the right tuning could increase that. My point is this is a very -powerful rifle. To much for any kid, Its work for a man. If your looking for a powerful airgun just this side of PCP, models, this is a good choice, for the price you get quality , power, and so far reliability. The old its made in china routine doesn't apply here.

By ryan from USA on 2013-02-14 14:48:23Things I liked:It's very well made and it is a nice looking rifle. That's about it
Things I would have changed:.25 caliber This gun has an abnormally long stock. I have no idea where the measurements came from. Quattro trigger is awful. Probably a 10 pound pull even after lots of adjustment. I did a quick polish and lube and it is somewhat acceptable, I guess. After 400 rounds that where all over the place(5" groups@ 10yds)I finally tore it apart to give it a quick lube tune. It was surely smoother shooting and easier to cock but had no better groups. I cleaned the barrel periodically and tried 4 different ammo types. All garbage. I see nothing wrong with any of the internals or barrel. I think this design is just a piece of crap. I understand it is a high powered spinger but this thing is deplorable for accuracy. I had big hopes for this thing and it turned out to be a bone. I have several high power springers and I have plenty of shooting expirience. I would get pissed thinking I was shooting bad and then grab the 100 dollar Optimus and drill perfect groups seconds later. Trust me after 700 shots, it's not my shooting
What others should know:My experience with the .25 was fairly awful and this thing just sits in the gun case now. However I don't know if mine was just a pile of rubble or the design is bad. I do KNOW that the build quality was very nice though. I also don't know if other calibers shoot better. I guess I am just saying buy at your own risk. I would hate to have anyone else need to buy a second gun to do the job like I did and end up with an expensive display piece/loud noise maker.
