Things I liked:Lots of things to like about this gun. I really like the feel, weight, trigger, sights, anti-recoil, accuracy and power. This thing hits hard and straight.
Things I would have changed:I would put a weaver rail instead of dovetails on this. I tried a red-dot but it wouldn't stay. Fortunately, the open sights are good. Cocking is a little tough but not unbearable.
What others should know:Out of the box this gun seemed very "crunchy" and rough. I wasn't sure I was going to enjoy it. After a good break in, I really love this gun. It fires smooth and is a pleasure to shoot. My amateur chrony testing gave the following results (10 shots): JSB 8.44 avg 651.6 fps and the most accurate. Crosman Destroyer 7.9 699.0 fps and quite accurate. Just for fun Daisy Lead Free 5.0 913.7 fps and not as accurate but still not bad at 10m. I've tried a number of different pellets and the accuracy is still pretty solid.
Things I liked:I got this gun (my first "adult" airgun) because of the problems finding .22rf shells, with the intention of using it for small bore pistol league this winter. I was pleasantly surprised at how accurate it shoots at 50ft. The weight and balance are great. I will probably stick with this gun even if .22rf shells are more available this year.
Things I would have changed:I would like to see a weaver or picatinny rail. The owners manual doesn't cover cleaning and maint. very well.
What others should know:If you're new to serious airguns don't get discouraged with the gun before you try a few different pellets. Cheap pellets are great for killing soda cans, but will not bring out the true potential of the gun.
Things I liked:This gun is heavy, and feels good in your hand. You can tell right away, just by holding it, that it's not a toy. It is built solid, and delivers a powerful punch. I have the gun in .22 caliber; using Benjamin Discoveries (14.3 grain) the gun shoots a solid 500 fps / 8 FPE. (The box claims 600 fps, but that's probably with 11 grain pellets. I'd rather shoot the heavier 14's, because in the end, weight matters more than velocity when you're talking about the amount of energy delivered to the target.) This gun is dead-on accurate under 30 meters, and even at longer ranges, it's still not bad. Out of 8 shots at a 4" wide metal post at a range of 100 yards, I hit the post 3 times, and I believe that I could have done better if it had not been at dusk when the sun was setting / light was fading.
Things I would have changed:I only wish that Hatsan (or some other manufacturer) would make a hard pistol case big (wide) enough to store the gun in, WITH the cocking extender attached. That would make me a very happy camper.
What others should know:Everyone says this pistol is hard to cock; I haven't had this problem. It is very stiff, and requires a modicum of effort, but any average-strength adult male should have no problem. Remember, you're compressing a pistol-sized spring that is powerful enough to fling a 14.3 grain pellet at 500 fps! You're not cocking a Red Ryder! Plus, once your arm gets used to the amount of force that cocking requires, your muscles (ever heard of muscle memory?) anticipate the need for that force, and cocking becomes almost effortless. After you've shot about 100 or so pellets, you won't even notice the cocking effort. Also, I shoot about 500 pellets per range session, and my arm has never gotten tired. I am not a body builder, I have only average strength; but I can cock and fire this thing pretty fast, with no fatigue.
