Things I liked:Beautiful rifle with plenty of power. .25 cal. for me, and after having some initial scope problems, which I'll discuss later, I consider it the finest airgun I own. Initial sight in with Champion pellet trap indoors had shots going through the same hole.
Things I would have changed:Rail system and sling mounts.
What others should know:Using a Leapers 4-16x44 AO SWAT Accushot scope I had to get high rings and had problems because the base of yhe rings is too thick, or there isn't enough room for the rails to accept that thickness. I got a pair of the Weaver to dovetail mounts and that cured any problems, including that front sight looking like a little Christmas tree at the bottom of the scope. When I finally got up to the mountains to use my friends backyard range I was quite happy to find that I could cover a 3 shot group at 50 yds. with a penny.
Things I liked:Looks and Quality,Accuracy,feel,extra mag,sling,Iron sights.
Things I would have changed:The manual needs to improve.
What others should know:This air rifle is on the heavy side. Shoots great just as is. The stock cracked and Hatsan replaced no question ask and real quick.
Things I liked:Beautiful and awesome looking rifle. I give it 5 stars for its looks. But things go down hill from there for me. I do like the 13 round mag, it gives you time to get comfortable with your shooting, before reloading. But one mag I have to turn manually after a 100+ rounds. The other mag works fine. loading the pellets, they have to be fully seated or else the rifle will jam. My son's Benjamin Marauder loads easy and does not jam. The rifle is very accurate at 25 yards and today I shot at 85 yards (285 feet)with a new scope. A Nikon P-223. It took 4 or 5 shots to get lined up with the bulls eye. The BM is just as accurate.
Things I would have changed:The sling attachment should be changed to a standard American sling attachment. I did put a quality bipod on. But I had to put it behind the sling attachment. The rifle would be more stable if the bipod was farther up front. Quality of the mag needs improvement. Also it's hard to buy extra mags at this time. Now, how about a manual for this rifle? They gave me an incomplete manual for a different rifle. A lot of what I am saying is because I am comparing it with what you get with the BM. This is how stupid I am about this rifle. I couldn't figure out how to put air in it. I was set up with a shoebox for the BM. 2 days later I figured out that I needed an adapter for the shoebox (air venturi male). Just another delay (weather, neighbors, and stupidity). They say it's a high quality trigger? I question that, because mine would lock up and when you let go if you touched the trigger again it would fire (dangerous). Loctite helped this problem. But the trigger is still not as smooth as the BM. Maybe with some fine adjustments and some more Loctite I'll be able to get it to match the BM. This rifle is loud (5). I did buy an "air stripper" from a different website. The idea of the air stripper is to align the pellet from air turbulence when leaving the barrel. But it does quiet it down to about a 3 from a 5. Does it make it more accurate? I'm not sure. I would have to switch back and fore with the original attachment to find out. Maybe if I'm bored enough some day I'll try it out.
What others should know:If your thinking about getting into PCP rifles I would recommend to start with a BM, shoebox and an air bottle. With that stuff you can go out into the woods or go to a rifle range and shoot off a couple of hundred rounds before you will need a refill. You will definitely become a better shooter faster, then if you go to the rifle range with a high caliber rifle (cost of ammo, so less shooting). The reason is cost and availability of ammo these days. There is not much difference between bulk .22 caliber and high quality pellets at 50 yards. Except the pellets are a lot less expensive. I expect that when my son reaches my age that the Hatsan will still be in good working order. Quality is no problem, except for the mag.
