Lots of shootin' fun for you and the whole family when you've got the Hatsan 250XT pistol. Shoot for fun, shoot to teach proper gun handling or shoot to stay proficient with firearms. No matter why you shoot, you're gonna have a good time!
Steel BBs can ricochet. The shooter and everyone in the shooting area should wear safety glasses when a gun is being handled (even if it's unloaded). Remember to remove all pets from the area, as rebounding ammo can hit them, too. Never shoot steel BBs at hard objects (including metal targets) or water, as that increases the chance of ricochet.
Things I liked:It is a twin for the Ruger Mark 11 pistols it
even breaksdown the same way.I have four Mark 11"s and
the heft and feel will allow me to practice at home
and saving what little I have left of my .22 long rifle
ammo.Take a look at the You Tube video on this gun.A gem" Things I would have changed: I like it but an extra clip is almost $25.00 but I'll
get one anyway. What others should know:It not only takes down like it's firearm version, even
the clip release is in the same position
Things I liked:the detail, the weight. feels just like the powder burner it represents. i like it. Things I would have changed:make the mag follower lock back for loading the bb's What others should know:shoots very nice. offhand accuracy is 2.5 / 3.0 inches at 15 feet. you young fellows might do better.
it drives me absolutely crazy that this pistol doesn't have a working bolt with blow back!!! any idea if any company is planning to release a blow back version of this model type pistol? that's the only thing keeping me from getting this gun!!!
Erika from USA:
There has been no word from the manufacturer if they are going to make a model with a working bolt and blowback
Jeffrey from USA asked:
Does anyone else have a problem with this particular pistol's magazine sealing and holding CO2? I have about 30-40 CO2 pistols/rifles and none have this problem (unless the seals were defective or something like that). I've used Pellgun oil (always)on every new cartridge, used both Daisy and Crosman cartridges -- usually can't even get it to seal at the cartridge tip. Bought this pistol used in great shape, and thought maybe it was just a bad magazine, so bought a new magazine and still having issues. Finally got new one to seal like a normal CO2 gun, but within 24hrs all the CO2 had leaked out. This is driving me nuts because it SHOULD work and it's not that complicated! Can anyone help???
Erika from USA:
Are you using Pellgunoil when you load the CO2? This may help with the seal.
Clay from USA asked:
This pistol comes with two hex wrenches. The large one is for CO2 installation. The tiny one seems to fit only the hex screw found atop of the barrel. If I adjust this tiny hex screw the pistol malfunctions; either it jams completely, or it fails to release any CO2. My question is: What is this adjustment? How do I gauge if it is adjusted properly?
John from USA:
I believe it is a hop-up much like an airsoft gun; it is my educated guess from taking the gun apart.
