Things I liked:This gun looks wicked, and has a nice solid feel. It is very accurate, (much more accurate than this shooter is). I'm a left-handed shooter, and was concerned that the pistol grip would not fit my left hand, but the folks at Pyramyd Air checked it, and said that wasn't a problem. They were correct, the fit is very comfortable. This gun has a lot of power, and hits like a sledge hammer, with very good accuracy. I have to agree with the other reviewers that I like the extra mag storage. Also like the adjustable stock, as it really helps setting eye relief for a scope. I've put about 600 rounds through the gun in just a few weeks, and am really enjoying getting back into shooting. This is my first PCP air rifle and I'm very pleased.
Things I would have changed:The bluing could be more uniform, there are faded machine marks that can be seen on the barrel, and on the air reservoir, but this is a very minor complaint given the overall quality of the gun.
What others should know:The cocking is stiff at the beginning, but loosens up as the bolt is used more and more. When cocking the gun, make sure the magazine indexes properly to position the next round. Occasionally it may hang, and you have to pull back the bolt a little harder to make sure it advances. This also seems to get better with use. If you're not sure a pellet was chambered, it's best to lock the bolt in the rear position, remove the magazine, and look into the breach. This will keep you from accidently loading two pellets. I know the manual says there is a feature that prevents this, but I'm not sure how it works. I purchased the Hatsan Air Stripper and it seems to diffuse the noise a little. This rifle is loud, and has about the same report as a .22 long rifle. Purchased the Hill Pump and am very satisfied with its performance. I need to exercise, and shooting the gun is my reward for using it.
Things I liked:I like the extra mag storage on the elite. I really like the adjustable butt stock.
Things I would have changed:It should come with the air stripper
What others should know:This gun is truly awesome with the air stripper, it tightens up the group dramatically. You simply must get the stripper if you buy his gun. I have shot 7 different types of ammo. H N pointed and beeman pointed were the absolute worse. JSB exact kings are the best other round nose pellets are OK not great. Once I had eair stripper in place i have been able to shoot 6 nine shot clips before refilling the gun that's 54 shots and at 50 yards the last shot was about two inches lower than the first fairly awesome. I went with an overkill 6000 psi tank and regulator set up added about 1200 dollars to my gun, but worth it if you plan on shooting a lot. I get about 275 fills after shooting 5 clips. A 3000 psi scuba tank you might get 3 fills.
Things I liked:Hatsan BT65 SB Elite Air Rifle, Black TH Stock I have several other PCP guns. Benjamin Discovery, Benjamin Marauder, AirForce Condor and Hammerli Pneuma Elite 10. They all perform excellently. All I can tell you is after trying PCP Airguns I shall never go back to Springers. I definitely can't tell you which one is more accurate. However this gun stands out. I got mine in .25 caliber and this was my best deal ever. I installed a Leapers 3-12x44 AO SWAT Accushot Rifle Scope, and went to zero it. First shot in the bull's eye. Not 1/8 of an inch to the right or left, not 1/8 an inch up or down but absolutely in the center of the bull's eye at 35 yards. I couldn't believe it, so I shot 5 more shots... All in the same hole. The hole was larger after 6 shots but not that much larger. Unbelievable. And, guys, what I love the most in any gun is accuracy. Accurate is this gun's first name. Ok, the scope was zeroed to the distance I like. The scope can be installed using Dovetail rings or Weaver. The trigger is adjustable but I didn't touch mine as it was perfect for me out of the box. This gun is also beautiful and Powerful. Then it has 3 additional Weaver accessory rails on the front of the stock where I installed a very nice bipod, a green powerful flashlight on the right and a red laser on the left zeroed for short distances like 12 yards. It came with a very nice sling, which is very convenient given the fact that this gun is already heavy, and with all those accessories I installed... well, you can imagine. You can carry 3 fully loaded magazines on the gun which is also very convenient and it's extremely fast to change them in the dark as you can easily feel where they are. This gun has lots of strong points but the most amazing is accuracy. Once you zero a good scope, if you fail it's your fault not the gun. This gun's last and middle name is accuracy. This is a powerhouse that sends .25 caliber pellets down the range screaming at more than 1.000 feet per second.
Things I would have changed:I wouldn't change a thing to this gun
What others should know:I don't hunt or shoot animals but I had to change that policy this year. I have chickens and ducks roaming free range around this little 2 acre fenced farm of mine. In the Spring I had 15 hens and 3 roosters and a few ducks. After 3 years of total absence of predator attacks this Spring and Summer there was a Locust year that happens every 17 years only. Around 25 billion cicadas came from the underground and start mating till the mid July. Every bird and lizard or any creature that eats insects must have had a gastronomic feast this year and my chickens and ducks were full and happy not even paying attention to the supplemental food I give them daily. And up the food chain everyone had a chance to raise many more puppies than ever given so much food available. (At least that's my theory) When the cicadas were gone all those creatures needed to eat and my chickens were very available and fat. So from 15 hens and 3 roosters I see myself only with 2 hens and 2 roosters and from 5 ducks I have now 4 and one is blind with deep holes in her head and neck while the others are still recovering from very severe injuries. 16 baby chicks I bought from a hatchery house, to substitute the losses, vanished in one night and from them I could only find 3 headless bodies. And they were very well protected (or so I thought). I installed 2 motion activated alarms and only then I realized I was under siege. The alarms were sounding several times during the night sometimes simultaneously. Lots of raccoons were invading my property from several different directions. That's when my Hatsan BT65 SB Elite started to work and shining. In two weeks got 11 raccoons single shot to the head. The last one and number 12 needed 3 shots but I believe it was still a humane kill as it was performed in maybe 8 seconds. I'm sleep deprived and still tired to the bone but I can finally rest thanks to my Hatsan Elite. I believe that in this region the equilibrium between prey and predator was reestablished or is close to it thanks to the efficiency of my powerful gun. Sorry for this long story but I believe that others should know how good this beauty can be to get rid of pests.
