Things I liked:accuracy , price,power, very well built, open sights. the stock.The trigger for the price..
Things I would have changed:for the money, nothing. but it would be better if it had a better trigger. its not bad. its smooth and breaks good its just a long pull. much better than the benjamin trail or gamo big cat . but again for the money its great !
What others should know:This gun has amazed me with the accuracy with so many brands of pellets it shoots very good ! How well its built for such a low price and i have not even put a scope on it yet. fpe is about 19. very good for any pesty critters or hunting small game. Dont let the price fool you. i highly recomend it. some of the best pellets mine shot was the H&N 14.66, RWS Superdome 14.5 , H&N copper plated 15.12 gr. CPHP 14.3 WHEN SORTED.. It took bout 200 shots to break in . i have put this gun to the test . iv shot round 2000 shots out of it so far and not even a loose screw. AWESOME for the price. clean the bore good before you start shooting it new, then run a dry patch or 3 through it when it accuracy starts to suffer. As always P.A SERVICE IS AAAA+
Things I liked:The skeletonized Ambi-thumb hole stock... enables a solid comfortable "perch" of the rifle. The "compact" overall length in comparison to other air rifles. The operation of the safety, done properly on this rifle... push forward to fire. The overall solid feel of a well built air rifle. The barrel firmly and solidly locks up after loading a pellet. The fiber optic sights are great for plinking at tin cans. Power is incredible for an air in this price class... I have this rifle in .22 caliber and am currently shooting the 14.3gr Crosman Premiers, they smack steel targets and tin cans with authority! I wouldn't be afraid to take small game up to rabbit size out to 40yds once dialed in.
Things I would have changed:The hollow twang of the stock that is noticeable through your cheek. I may remove the butt pad to see If I'm able to insert some type of packing material to absorb or deaden this. The trigger... overall its smooth, but the pull is very long before the gun fires. It's not a hard pull IMO, but too long. The scope is what you'd expect from a rifle in this price range, nothing impressive and I will be upgrading. The rifle deserves better. The scope stop is way to far forward even at the rear setting. I mounted the front scope ring, not the rear one, right up tight against the front of the scope stop in it's rear position and the rear ring as far back from it as possible. This caused my scope to be cradled in both rings in front of the adjustment turrets. Seems to be solid so far even if it looks funky. Will upgrade mounts later to a droop compensating weaver/picatinny rail to provide better and more scope positioning options with UTG quick detach rings.
What others should know:The bipod is strictly for display purposes at best and this is even questionable. My scope maxed out the right windage adjustment to get right beside the bullseye. The elevation adjustment worked fine. Fine for plinking purposes, but inadequate for precision target work. The rifle alone is worth the price. I don't know of any other air rifle with this level of power and build quality in this price range. The Hatsan Striker Edge has got to be one of if not the best deals out there flying under the radar. I plan to make my next air rifle purchase another Hatsan, in fact I'm deciding between the Hatsan 125 and 135 with the 135 probably getting the nod. Wonder if Hatsan will soon be releasing the 135 with the Vortex Piston? Not sure if that would be a better power plant though than the springer for various reasons I've discovered from other reviewers, both professional and amateur.
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!
