Things I liked:the trigger is very smooth and needed no adjustments right out of the box. the Vortex ram does an excellent job of pushing the Crosman 14.3 pellet out to 50yards with no problem. the Truglo open sights are very easy to use.
Things I would have changed:would have liked to seen a picatinny rail instead of the dovetail
What others should know:the plastic used seems thin and cheap. the buttend has a hollow sound in it. when adding the included spacers you need to buy longer screws as the ones that are in it are to short. it loves the Crosman Premier pellets (14.3).this is not a little kids toy. does take some effort to cock it but I already knew this when I bought it. I set up a 1" phone book 40yards out and the pellet blows right through it. would have gave 5 stars on all but the plastic brings it down to 4 stars.
Things I liked:Powerful! Well-constructed, good trigger, fiber optic sites are great, sling mounts are a nice feature not found on many air rifles, NOT made in China and fairly quiet
Things I would have changed:Offer with a weaver optics rail similar to what is available on the Hatsan Mod. 125, I also like the safety better on the Hatsan Mod. 95. Maybe leave off the scope and bipod and reduce the price a bit--they are not on the same level as the rifle. But overall very little I would realistically want to change. Its a great rifle for the money
What others should know:Hatsan may not have the popularity that Gamo or Crosman have in the U.S. but they make some great rifles. The Sniper 85 vortex is my 2nd Hatsan rifle and I am looking to buy another sometime in the future - the Hatsan model 125 Sniper Vortex. If you're looking for a good quality air rifle take a look at what Hatsan has to offer. I have also owned a Bengamin NP XL and its a great rifle too. However, I consider the 85 Sniper Vortex to be very comparable to the NP XL for a better price point. I like how Hatsan states the potential velocity of their rifles using lead pellets instead of alloy because that's what most people actually use. I have probably put 1,200-1,400 rounds through it but I have not mounted a scope to it yet. I've been very content with shooting with fiber optic sites. I mostly use Crosman Premier Domed, 14.3gr pellets and the results have been good. Its gets 5 stars all around
Things I liked:Everything! This is my third .25 cal rifle and am impressed all around. Right out of the box, with stock sights, the accuracy is unreal at 30-35 yards. Mounted and zeroed the scope in under ten shots. For a model that claims to max at 650 fps, in this caliber, it still packs a punch. Very suitable for small game hunting. The trigger is an absolute dream! With only minor adjustments, it it set exactly how I prefer. The break action on the barrel is smooth and surprisingly (to me) was not very hard at all to fully cock. The fact that it is not a spring and performs better than one just tops it off. Overall the rifle has a good feel to it, is highly addictive to shoot, and would definitely purchase again.
Things I would have changed:I have read and heard the complaints about the scope, mounts, sling, and bi-pod. I'm not too concerned about any of that, more so the rifle itself. However, the scope (albeit not top of the line) works just fine and have had no problems after a tin and a half of pellets. No broken rings or damage to the scope. The bi-pod and sling, again is not top of the line, but do exactly what they should. For the rifle, I would not make any changes.
What others should know:If you are on Pyramid Air's website and wondering if they are a reputable business or are hesitant to order from them, don't worry! My first purchase with Pyramid Air dates back probably close to ten years now. I was having trouble deciding on a particular model to buy and ended up speaking to the owner himself. Joshua spent a considerable amount of time on the phone helping with my purchase. You will not find the great level of customer service you do at Pyramid anywhere else. Always friendly, always helpful, and always willing to go the extra mile. Throw in fair pricing, super speed order processing and shipping.. What is there to question? Repeat, loyal, extremely happy customer here. Keep up the great work and thank you!
