Things I liked:Lightweight, low cocking effort, compact, POWERFUL, automatic safety, skeleton composite stock, has a scope and "iron" sights, solid muzzle break on barrel to aid in cocking, globe over front sight to protect it, SUPERIOR BUILD QUALITY for a low-dollar gun. I can't say it enough...this thing is build like a tank...a German tank! There is none of the cheesy, rushed, imprecise machining that is evident in other "cheap" guns I own. I find it hard to believe that this gun cost so little. While I'm on the subject...the price is great!
Things I would have changed:The trigger! While not as bad as most stock Crosman triggers, it's still pretty bad. I would love to see a better trigger system (like the Quattro) in this gun. Improve the trigger, and mark it up 50 bucks...I'd still buy it. The Optima scope was crap, and after two attempts I have received no reply from Hatsan regarding it, but at this price point I can't complain, I just bought something better. The composite stock is a little thin where the front mounting screws go, but only time will tell if it's a problem or not. Scope mounting is tough, as the scope stop (which is a nice touch, just poorly executed) forces the rear scope ring too far forward for comfortable eye relief...I have to "choke-up" on the stock a bit to get a good sight picture. Remove the factory scope stop, and use one of the holes in the receiver for your scope stop screw in whatever mounting system you use: problem solved.
What others should know:The Optima 3-9 scope that came with mine was junk. It self destructed within 60 shots (Chrony testing) without ever having even adjusted it. Also, scope mounting: the factory scope stop is nice, but forces the scope to be mounted too far forward. I just removed it. I mounted a UTG 3-12x44 SWAT, IR, MD compact scope, using a UTG dovetail to weaver mount, with 10 degrees of droop compensation. I still have to crane forward a bit on the stock to get a good picture, but it works. The point: remove the factory stop, and use the holes for the stop-screws in whatever scope ring/mounting system you choose; and don't bother with a "compact scope." Most "full size" scopes will have enough length that eye relief shouldn't be a problem, but compact/shorter scopes (like the stock Optima) are a little tough to set up right. The trigger is rough, somewhat adjustable, and a bit heavy, but better than some Crosman triggers. This gun is a POWER-HOUSE! As an example, mine Chronys at an avg of 755.6 fps with Beeman Feild Target Special 14.66 gr Domed pellets...very close to the claimed 800 fps...refreshing! It likes a tight fit in the breach for best velocity and accuracy. Also, recoil is a bit heavy, but what can one expect from a powerful gun that is so light? Accuracy seems good, and the gun isn't super "pellet sensitive." I'll ask the squirrels what they think next season;) This is a GREAT VALUE!
Things I liked:Ordered the Hatsan Edge in .25 cal. with Pyramyd's 10 for $10 (10 shot string ranged from 554 to 562 fps with JSB 25.4 gr. pellets). This is a hard hitting beast of a gun delivering a solid 18 ft/lbs. Those who have not given the .25 cal. a try might want to consider this gun.
Things I would have changed:I mounted the scope and had to deal with some serious droop as well as windage issues (I discarded the included rings and used some beefy 4 bolt mid rise rings). After trial and error, I was able to use shims to compensate for the droop and windage. Those purchasing this gun may want to consider a droop compensating mount. I recommend blue locktite when mounting the scope, as this rifle wants to buck the scope right off. Also, I have found that the screw holding the trigger assembly likes to work its way loose (I just check this to make sure its tight).
What others should know:This is a quality gun at this price point. I am impressed with the power that this gun delivers. I have tried numerous pellets and found that the H & N Hollowpoint 26.23 gr. pellet to be the most accurate in my gun (with the JSB's 25.40 gr. running a close second). I have had less luck with H & N Baracuda and Baracuda Hunter Extreme, which may need more velocity than this gun can deliver. The accuracy is relatively good (although I am still perfecting my hold). I bought this rifle as I wanted to see what the .25 cal. was all about. The size of the pellet is impressive and dwarfs a .17 cal. pellet. If you want a lightweight handy rifle that delivers some serious firepower for an "air" gun, this might be the gun for you.
Things I liked:Great looking gun. Once the scope was sighted in, it worked pretty good. I think I have to shoot it more often and things will probably improve. The 25.39 grain Jumbo .22 pellets shot in the low 500 fps. and the 14.35 grain premier pellets were in the mid 750 fps. range.
Things I would have changed:Based on the above nomenclature, maybe the Mfg. could reexamine velocities or perhaps I should use the lightest pellets? One more thing - the recoil wasn't bad, but sounds and feels different from all my other break barrel guns, including 2 Beemans.
What others should know:For the money this is good value and fun to shoot.
