Things I liked:I purchased this gun in .25 cal. The size, the quality of materials, the trigger and the accuracy. The value, if it wasn't such a crap-shoot as to whether or not the gun would fail due to faulty manufacturing procedures.
Things I would have changed:Hatsan has got to buckle down and improve their quality control. Despite the high quality materials, they are being let down by their seeming inability to clean all of the machining debris from the insides of their guns. After only about 30 shots, the gun would not cock. I did not take it apart to find out why, but it could only be debris jamming the trigger mechanism, because the barrel would not lock in the broken position. The gun was otherwise excellent... what a shame, to blow it all by not sweating the details on a consistent basis.
What others should know:I really went into this purchase with an open mind, wanting it to work. I had read on various on-line forums and blogs about Hatsan's variable quality control, but I had the feeling Hatsan was being picked-on, for some reason or another. Kind of like the way many people disparage Chinese guns simply for being Chinese (even though many Chinese guns are high quality)... maybe people were disparaging Hatsans for being Turkish. I also purchased, later, before this gun failed, a Hatsan Mod 125, also in .25 cal. It arrived the day after the 95 failed, and based on my experience with the 95, I quickly put a lot of pellets through it (70 in the first evening I had it), so I could determine if it, too, would fail quickly. The 125 is far more brutish in its mechanical behavior, being roughly twice as powerful, in terms of muzzle energy, but so far it has been very reliable and has progressed through the break-in period nicely, getting tangibly smoother and more consistent with each shot. It is at least as accurate as the 95. To sum it up, PA was superb in their handling of this situation: they immediately emailed a Fedex shipping label for the 95's return to them. I will be applying the credit for this gun toward a Cometa Fenix 400 in .177 cal. I am optimistic about my experience with the Hatsan 125 I just got - if it proves reliable in the long term, it will be one of my favorite guns, as the 95 would likely have been, if it had not failed.
Things I liked:Nice trigger. I haven't adjusted it at all from the factory setting. Very good accuracy out of the box. I also like the wood stock and the power. I also like the automatic safety. I have the .22 version.
Things I would have changed:It is fairly difficult to cock and has a lot of recoil. The cocking is not very smooth.
What others should know:The hinge piece underneath the barrel seems lose and rattles a little bit. This doesn't seem to affect the accuracy or power. I don't know if this is normal for the Hatsan 95 or just my rifle. I wa very surprised how accurate it is and the trigger is very consistent and light. The scope is not great but it is fine for my use. The rifle is good looking. I used the open sights and they work well. This is an adult gun because of the recoil and the cocking effort. Comparing the Nitro Venom to the Hatsan 95 is a close call. The 95 has a much better trigger but harder to cock. The NV is much smoother, quieter, and the scope is better. You can't go wrong with either, but I would lean towards the Nitro Venom.
Things I liked:Trigger adjustment is nice
Things I would have changed:Don't include that scope be more thorough assembling it
What others should know:This gun was a huge disappointment for me. When i got it, the front sight was put on sideways, and the rear sight, after a long and painful removal of the front sight, i found was also tilted to the left and no matter how i adjusted it, it wouldn't stop leaning to the left, so i removed that. The trigger guard comes loose every 15-20 shots,and the screws that hold the stock to the barrel assembly on either side were horrible- one was secured with a screw in it, but the other was wayyyy too tight, and when i went to loosen it because the barrel was obviously wayy off center with the sides of the stock,i heard cracking so i stopped. I was turning the correct way to loosen it. After about 250-300 shots, the recoil seemed to be smoothed out, so i installed the scope with better Allen screw mounts that had come with my gamo silent cat and had never failed me yet. The scope exploded after 10 shots and the back of the scope hit me in the eye as it dislodged from the rest of the scope. I cant return this due to my modifications (i believed it would've been worth it). I don't recommend this gun. the workmanship is poor, assembly of this gun obviously isn't quality controlled. I'm out $150, and for what? a broken scope, sliced eyebrow, and a lot of frustration.
